"These boots are absolutely amazing. Best looking boots out of the several that I own." - Don R.

Originally designed for the 2012 collection, the Railroad boot was brought back years after its original release due to its popularity and so many requests for its return. After studying old photos of railroad workers, the design was modernized while still holding on to its historical and Americana roots. It features an updated, modern heel and a mini-lug sole for added grip and control, and is made using supple leather in a rich Chromexcel from Horween. The Railroad takes a working style from the 19th century and puts it to work as a fashion staple in the 21st.

    These boots really are amazing. By far the nicest shoes I've ever bought. They look great, feel great and the quality is outstanding. I couldn't recommend Helm highly enough to anyone and I'll always have a pair of them in my wardrobe from now on.

    Railroad Kept Me On Track to Get More Helms

    Loved the 8 EE fit on my feet that I also purchased the Johnson, Marion, and Hollis. Gave away my Thursday 7.5 EEE Captains. Thanks much!

    Best damn railroad boot of the bunch

    Just got to the point where I am wearing my boots for the whole day. Lots of conditioning used on these since receiving. The boots are now comfortable and seem to be easy to wear for long periods without any part causing any discomfort. Great looking boots that are noticed by several folks even with a 75 year old wearing them. I highly recommend this style to anyone interested. You will note that this particular style has a slightly more rounded toe box which I happen to prefer. If that is something you would like, try them, you will ot be sorry.

    My new favorite boots

    I purchased a pair of Zind in black a few weeks before these. I really like them and was surprised to find that I look to the Railroad far more. The feel really comfortable and I love the natural leather. Not sure which will be my next purchase, but it won’t be long.
