"Straight out of the box, I’m extremely impressed. High quality you can feel as soon as you put them on." - Ray C.

The ruggedness of the Marion meets the refinement of the Zind, the Hollis is a boot perfect to complement any wardrobe. Made of supple full-grain Krumenauer leather, it’s a work-boot style and dress boot combined to create a class of its own. The Mini-Lug sole offers traction and stability while still keeping a slimmer profile. The 415 last gives it a more narrow form while the double and triple stitch throughout make it a style versatile enough to accompany all of your outfits.

Excellent boots!

I wore my Hollis boots on day 1 walking about 5 miles around Austin, TX and they felt great! They keep getting more comfortable and, after 60 days, they’ve become one of the best pair of boots I’ve owned. They’re especially nice for travel because I can wear them in the airport with casual clothes and then wear them with business dress later after arrival. Excellent boots for dress and casual. I’ll be purchasing a black pair soon.

Great value!

Excellent quality! These will last you a long time. Leather is very supple and break in very easily. I love them!

A well-built, comfortable and stylish boot.

I got these boots because I need ankle support, but I don't want to look silly wearing hiking boots at work anymore. I also cross-shopped with the heritage collection from Red Wing shoes, but found that I liked the Hollis boot better (not to mention a better price!). I've been wearing my Hollis for about a month now. They've been comfortable right from the start, and I receive lots of compliments on them. It is a little hard to keep them unscuffed with my lifestyle, but that's true for any leather. I really like how easy they are to get into (leather lining helps with this), but be aware that they don't provide much insulation, so you need to use warm socks in the winter months. I'm curious to see how many years they last!

Beautiful Boots

Have had these for a week. Really beautiful with very detailed construction. They are very comfortable right out of the box and take almost no time to break in. My feet are a size 12.5 EE or EEE but I have a comparatively narrow heel and mid-foot. There is no 12.5 so I got 13 EE. I would say that they are slightly too large length-wise and slightly too wide in the mid-foot and heel for my V-shaped foot profile. The EE forefoot fit is very good. So overall the fit is pretty good. Would like if there could be a 12.5 option but very few boot/shoe makers offer that size so it is expected. For the heel and mid-foot maybe another model maybe is more narrow and would suit my foot profile a bit better. But these are really small gripes. Shipping was quick but I gotta say that I am in Hong Kong and the $60 international shipping is quite brutal and really pushes these into a different price bracket. So I had to use a freight forwarder to get the shipping cost lower which of course added time to the shipping. So it would be nice if Helm could figure out some better shipping options with their local courier services for international customers.

Great boots

Super happy with these. Used the size finder and it was recommended to go up to a size 13 based on the Clarks I've been wearing. Happy that I took the suggestion. Great fit, still breaking them in but wore them for multiple 12 hour days with no blistering or issues. Love that they can be dressed up or down.
