What's In A Name

Nils Juul-Hansen, a man of independent fashion, a devoted father, a talented and tireless artist and photographer, and a loyal friend, has been a true HELMSMAN since the birth of our brand. We met him in 2009 at the HELM launch party, and he has understood, promoted and supported the brand like a champ ever since. Ten years later, we finally designed a shoe that fit the mold of the man himself, an honest rebel that forges his own path and defines his own creative style.

These are probably the best pair of shoes that I have purchased in many years. I work in healthcare and it involves quite a bit of walking all day. It took about a day or two to break these in, but now in my second week of wearing them, I find a big difference in comfort and support. These look great in a formal setting and are sturdy enough to last a very long time. I'll certainly be back to buy more soon!

Exactly what I was looking for.

In my profession, I’m often in plants walking on concrete floors and leather soled shoes were really getting to be hard on my feet. I was really looking for a hybrid shoe that would dress up nice, plus be good for standing and walking on hard floors. Additionally, I preferred more of a rugged sole that wouldn’t pitch or wear out quickly. After a phone consultation I decided on the NILS, and I’m thoroughly pleased. They checked all the boxes. The leather and the build quality is something you’d find in a shoe that cost significantly more money. I’m very impressed and I’ve ordered a pair of boots that are arriving in a few days. Highly recommended!!
