Our Story

Designed with Love in Austin Texas

It began in a small factory started by my Grandfather in Austin TX. I spent a large part of my boyhood in that factory where three generations worked together to make classic hand made leather moccasins. Over the years the company has been passed from grandfather to father to son and daughter. The company is still run out of Austin, but we no longer have that factory. Today we have a legacy to continue and a dream to fulfill to create a new modern aesthetic giving these classics a new twist. Without the support of family we could not have done this. So you see it is our family of five that inspired the name Five Tribe. Today our creative team at Five Tribe is making a new category of footwear, reinterpreting and remixing time tested designs with luxury detailing, fashion and comfort. Influenced by current and vintage trends and combining them with high impact bottoms and all leather uppers, creating a look and feel of undeniable appeal and longevity.
