What's In A Name

The Lou is named after our friend and acclaimed chef, Lou Lambert, who not unlike this boot is classic, hard-working and able to make just about anything happen. Generous and sincere, Lou loves to help people, and we felt this style was perfect to be named for him.

QUALITY AND COMFORT

Couldn't be happier. Usually when I find quality boots, comfort is not there. These have the best of both worlds. Will be buying more.

First pair

These were my first pair. Love them. So comfortable. These are as comfortable as my favorite sneakers. These are my youngest daughter who is 22 favorite pair. She loves them so much, she is buying a pair for her boyfriend. Since this pair, I have purchased another 3 different pairs of shoes/boots. I am hooked.

very high quality & comfort

I have been VERY impressed with Helm boots. I started with a pair of Zind boots and immediately knew I wanted more. From there I bought the Pablo boots, then the Lou boots in black. Then, once again, I bought the Lou boots in teak. The quality is outstanding. The fit (I bought wide in every pair) is immediately comfortable. The leather is stiff to begin with but that is to be expected when you're talking serious quality... so no stars taken off there at all. The sole on the Lou is a pleasant supportive cush... if that makes sense. I look forward to seeing and feeling how these boots age. Despite owning so many pairs of Helm boots, I'm not done yet. These boots are the real deal. Very happy I found Helm.
