Posted on April 09, 2015 by HELM Boots | 0 Comments


Who are you? 

My name is Brandon Ziskind. I am a skateboarder with a healthy obsession for old things & travel. I am married to Michelle Ziskind & work as a CT Technologist at Brackenridge Hospital. 

What’s your favorite pair of shoes?

My favorite pair of shoes are always the ones I'm currently kicking the shit out of.



Why?

I love the way things look when they are really worn down. For the past few years I have been wearing these Timberland Wodehouse Oxfords. They are beer-stained, the right shoe has a creak & I'll continue wearing them untill they fall apart.

Where did you get them?

Nordstrom

Who are you?

My name is Massan Fluker. Im a cyclist/photographer from San Francisco now living in Brooklyn, New York. Follow me on Instagram @massansf

What’s you favorite pair of shoes?

My favorite pair of shoes are the Nike Air Jordan 5. Hands down.


Why?

Ever since they came out I've just been a fan of them. They were the best looking basketball shoe at the time and the design still stands up. Its funny to see kids wearing them that weren't born yet when Michael Jordan was playing.

Where did you get them?

I got my first pair at this place call Athletes Foot at Mervyns Plaza in Redwood City, Ca. My most recent pair I got from some mom and pop shop on Fulton St. in Bedstuy. They cost $250. I didn't like that, but you know I bought them anyway.

Share something that’s happened to you while wearing those shoes.

Hmmm. Its hard to pick a specific incident, but I'd have to say I feel overwhelmingly confident when I wear them. Jordan 5's make me feel good about myself.

MY FAVORITE SHOE INTERVIEW NO. 27 BY JESSICA THOMPSON

Posted on March 25, 2015 by HELM Boots | 0 Comments

Who are you? 

I'm the founder of Velvet Dust, an indie fashion & arts mag, and INTL Velvet, a production & consulting agency for fashion & lifestyle brands.

What’s you favorite pair of shoes?

A pair of sheer mesh, lucite-heeled Margiela boots. They're kind of a cult classic. I'm still in awe that I was able to find them, and I treat them like fine china, only breaking them out for special occasions when there's no chance of rain, mud, beer-spills....

Why?

I love them because they're really different - they give the illusion that you're not really wearing shoes at all, and they're a good conversation starter.

Where did you get them?

I found them at a shop in Paris called La Piscine. It's like the Nordstrom Last Call of Paris and sells off-season designer styles.

Share something that’s happened to you while wearing those shoes.

I wore them to the launch party of Velvet Dust, which was an amazing fun and surreal night.

MY FAVORITE PAIR OF SHOES NO. 26 BY STEPHANIE BEARD

Posted on March 17, 2015 by HELM Boots | 0 Comments



Who are you? 
Hi, I'm Stephanie Beard. I'm founder of *esby apparel, a women's clothing brand that's based around the idea of buy less, wear often. We make quality, effortless clothing here in the USA.

What’s you favorite pair of shoes?
My Cobra Rock boots. 


Why?
I don't love a very girly shoe and prefer men's looks. but this boot seemed to be made just for me. rugged and simple, and the cowboy boot base was slim and pointy without being overly-so. I eyed them for years online until I finally got to visit Marfa.

Where did you get them?
My first trip to Marfa. these boots are on backorder and when I visited they had pair in my size. It was meant to be.

Share something that’s happened to you while wearing those shoes?
I recently visited NYC and hardly took them off. They were so versatile. Great to see they were as perfect for the city as they are here in Austin.
