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.

First pair

These were my first pair. Love them. So comfortable. These are as comfortable as my favorite sneakers. These are my youngest daughter who is 22 favorite pair. She loves them so much, she is buying a pair for her boyfriend. Since this pair, I have purchased another 3 different pairs of shoes/boots. I am hooked.

very high quality & comfort

I have been VERY impressed with Helm boots. I started with a pair of Zind boots and immediately knew I wanted more. From there I bought the Pablo boots, then the Lou boots in black. Then, once again, I bought the Lou boots in teak. The quality is outstanding. The fit (I bought wide in every pair) is immediately comfortable. The leather is stiff to begin with but that is to be expected when you're talking serious quality... so no stars taken off there at all. The sole on the Lou is a pleasant supportive cush... if that makes sense. I look forward to seeing and feeling how these boots age. Despite owning so many pairs of Helm boots, I'm not done yet. These boots are the real deal. Very happy I found Helm.

My Black Lou's are Awesome!

I had never been a boot person but I'm fast becoming one. My black Lou's have become part of my regular wear. They're breaking in very nicely and I get compliments on them regularly. Love the red laces, they're a beautiful contrast to the black leather. The boots feel great, look great, and are obviously built to last many years. Can't ask for more than that.

Heavy Leather in a good way

Beautiful style with rugged construction. They run narrow. Break in time is minimal. Buy the boot cream too. It speeds up break-in time and preserves the leather.

Low profile and very sharp

Mine arrived in in the middle of a snow storm so it took a while to get around to them. I didn't want to get my nice new white soles getting filthy with salt and mud. These boots feature a lower profile than typical wedge sole boots. They fit a niche between pure dress and pure work styles. As far as Fit. The toe box in this pointed cap toe shoe is just a little too much for one foot but I am hoping that the once they break-in they'll be more comfortable. The construction and quality are just perfect. Very solid leather. A must have.
