Notes From the Designer:
With the Hooper, I wanted to create a confident, American made shoe that is strong and handsome with a heritage feel, yet has just enough of a tapered toe and silhouette to also give it a contemporary look. The details and versatility of this shoe make it an immediate classic to lead the HELM shoe line.
This shoe is named after world-renowned tattoo artist, Thomas Hooper. He is a self-made artist who is highly influential in all of his artistic mediums, especially tattooing. When together, Thomas and Joshua like to consume granola and raw juices and be silly together as well as listen to really heavy rock music. Side note: Thomas also loves to BMX as well as rebuild and customize vintage Volkswagens. You can read more about Thomas and see his works at Hooper’s Electric
