Comfortable Fits for Everyone

The following testimonial was written by Shelby, a HELMSMAN who found HELM through a friend who recommended us to him for hard-to-find sizes:

As a trans man, one of my favorite things during my journey has been dressing the part. I love throwing on an outfit, expressing myself, and feeling confident in who I am! A struggle I encountered during my journey was finding a fashionable boot in my size. I’d go to shoe store after shoe store looking for a stylish size 7 in men’s and come up emptyhanded. Most stores rarely carry a size 7, and I’m a grown dude! Last place I’m headed is to the kid’s section. A buddy of mine mentioned HELM Boots one day, and from that moment forward my look feels complete. To be honest, my boots are always the topic of conversation when I receive a compliment!

Being able to finally embrace the masculine style is usually the first step in any trans man’s journey. Finding clothes and shoes that bring the vision to life lays the foundation for continued confidence and self-love. People physically see you becoming the man you know yourself to be! You no longer envision but actively select and build a wardrobe that screams you!

HELM Boots have become a key statement in my outfits, and the support the brand has provided in my journey has been unparalleled. I love hearing someone say, “Nice boots, man!” and without hesitation I tell them where they need to go. So soak up the beauty and drool over that leather! Or just check them out yourself!
