Craft shouldn't be a lost art, and we love to surround ourselves with people who feel the same way. Shea Henning founded ATX Record Players, and we thought music paired perfectly with the release of our Chelsea boot, given its history so richly rooted in music.

Shea's operation has evolved and now he builds out his own custom Tonenhaus line. How Shea approaches each project starts with deep purpose, care, and respect. Like what we do here at HELM, the result of Shea's work is mean to be passed down and enjoyed for generations.

Watch Shea's video below to check out his process.

Leather Care for The Finn

Our newest Chelsea boot comes in three styles: Sienna, Black, and Brown. The Finn Sienna is made of a water-resistant suede leather and for that we recommend suede protector. You can also clean your new Sienna Chelsea boot with Otter Wax Suede Cleaner. For The Finn Black and Brown, we recommend Blackrock Leather 'N Rich, our most popular boot care product. You can also use Pure Polish High Shine Wax if you like to keep your boots gleaming.

The Art of Sound

Shea's custom Tonenhaus record players are what craftsmanship is all about. You can choose the woodgrain, finishes, and accents, as well as each facet of technology from the tubes to the record player itself. Join Henning's email list to learn when a spot opens up.

Footwear for Life

We make Footwear for Life. Styles designed for every occasion, and made to last. But we aren't just here to sell boots and shoes. We are in endless pursuit of impeccable design and unmistakable, life-defining experiences; the coolest places, the most delicious food, the perfect soundtrack for every moment, fascinating people, and the partners who share in our pursuit to find these things.

There are more than 153 steps involved in making a pair of HELM footwear, performed by 14 master cobblers. We're relentless about craftsmanship and have spent years refining our process. Every pair of HELM reflects the dedication we have towards our craft and customers.

Everything we make is inspired by a story and a place. We want our footwear to be as long-lasting as the culture that inspired it, and we combine timeless construction methods with premium leather and materials to create footwear built with a purpose, and shoes made to endure the years, for people who take care of them. HELM footwear is meant to be worn for life.

We want every HELM purchase to be deeply meaningful to each customer, and our commitment to excellence lasts beyond checkout. We are here to serve you with unparalleled customer service and inspire you with tailored customer experiences, and share with you the things that inspire us, like we do in our iconic weekly Saturday Six.

Our goal since day one has been to create footwear that is versatile, timeless, and functional — able to be worn in the workshop or boardroom. You can spot every pair of HELM by its signature white midsole.
