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.

The Lou

I have owned these for a few weeks now. After wearing them about a week and breaking them in, they are becoming more and more comfortable to wear. The sole is very soft and comfortable, and overall the quality is very very good. I will definitely purchase more products from Helm in the future.

The commute

The original idea was to find a pair of boots I could commute on my motorcycle with and not have to change shoes when I got to work. Although not made specifically as motorcycle boots my new Lou's appear sturdy enough to ride my Ducati to work and they're definitely stylish enough for work. I purchased the Lou's in double EE and realized they were just a little too big. Alyssa made sure the exchange process was painless and my new size D's are a much better fit. Alyssa even offered to pay the cobbler fee if I needed to stretch them. You don't see that kind of Customer Service everyday. I've already recommended Helm boots to several of my co-workers.

First pair of Helm boots and very pleased so far. Had a small break in period but the more I wear them the more comfortable they become. Great looking boots and can't wait to start developing their patina for that lived in look.

Favorite Boots Ever.

These are hands down the nicest boots I’ve ever owned. I went with a size 10D based on what their amazing customer service suggested. I’m usually a 10.5 in sneakers, 10 in boots and these fit perfect. I loved them so much I wore them around the house for a week now even though I work from home to “break them in” even though they are perfectly comfortable right out of the box. Perfect boots, so comfortable and perfectly styled. I recommend everyone has at least one pair of the Lou’s, I’m even saving up for a second pair in a different color already.

Nice boots

Comfortable from the start. Very little break time seems required. I gave 4 starts instead of 5 as the slightly padded insert which makes it feel like my sock is bunching up ( right foot only?) . Hopefully that will go away.
