"If you could only own one pair of boots, the Hollis would be all you need." - Patrick A.

The ruggedness of the Marion meets the refinement of the Zind, the Hollis is a boot perfect to complement any wardrobe. Made of supple full- grain Balthazar leather, it’s a work-boot style and dress boot combined to create a class of its own. The Mini-Lug sole offers traction and stability while still keeping a slimmer profile. The 415 last gives it a more narrow form while the double and triple stitch throughout make it a style versatile enough to accompany all of your outfits.

Helm boots

Love the boots! However the laces stink! One of the laces broke the 2nd time I wore the boots. Laces are a little thin I think. Boots are amazing, quality is amazing! Bad laces.

Hollis for the win!

I love these boots. It was really hard for me to decide on a pair of boots especially coming out of the PNW. All the guys I work with wear Redwings, Nicks, Danner and Whites. I really wanted to branch out and try something different that didn’t have a Goodyear welt, not that a Goodyear is a bad thing but I wear a size 15 in shoe and 14 in boot and I was tired of wearing a boot that looked like a Ronald McDonald boot lol. The Hollis runs narrow, which is perfect for me because my feet are slim and long. I work in a warehouse so I am not outside tracking through mud and dirt so no need for a crazy chunk of a boot for concrete. I didn’t primarily buy these to work in but I wanted something that could accommodate both. I can work 12+ hour shift and get off, come home and take a brush to them and they are ready for a night out! It took me about a week or so to break these in. The tongue was chaffing my chicken ankle but after rotating between shoe and boot with also applying a small amount of conditioner to the tongue only they are now perfect and both boots have molded to my foot as one. I got the only Blake rapid stitch in the bunch and no regrets. They flow good with all my denim jeans and jackets flawlessly while giving me that comfort, style and freedom to work and or go on adventures daily.

Unpacked and was very impressed with the workmanship... Wore them, got the blisters to prove it, but I can't wait for them to be broken in.... Also love the lines created by the Blake Rapid Early.. Will update this...

Awesome boots!

This is my third HELM purchase! The quality of the shoes and boots is excellent! The shoes were comfortable, right out of the box! The boots, however, did take some time to get "broken in," and are now very comfortable! I'm not a big fan of the laces. On two occasions, the most recent being this morning, I was tying my shoes/boots, and laces snapped! I didn't have another set of laces so, I had to wear another pair of shoes. Inconvenient, yes! A deal breaker, no! A new pair of laces, mailed to me, would be great, but not necessary. I'll go out this weekend, and buy more laces.

Well worth it

The Hollis black look exactly like the pictures. The leather is flawless but a bit stiff, just need broke in. The sole is cushioned making them soft on the inside. I can't wait to get more colors during the sale. Thanks Zach for helping me with my transaction and answering all of my questions before I ordered.
