Notes on the Design:

A modification on the Chukka-style boot, the Pete Black is constructed using full-grain Tasman York leather with American bison panels for added contrast and detail. The angled cutout in the back reduces rubbing, adding comfort as well as subtly echoing the HELM logo. Made on the 415 last, it has a slimmer and sleeker shape, allowing it to be dressed up easily when paired with suits or pants. With its resemblance to a Chukka, it can still be an effortlessly casual style, with a uniquely textured and modern elegance.
