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.

Better than AE and RW

My third pair of shoes from Helm is the Lou Boots, size 9 in dark natural. They arrived in 3 days. They are a fantastic shade of tan/light brown. Out of the box yet they need to break in, but the fit is spot on for my feet. They’re form fitting but not remotely tight or constricting. The leather, finish and stitching, even closely scrutinized is perfect. The sole is like a trail running shoe, the leather has toughness and like other boots I own. I’m a bit disappointed in AE boots that were 2X the price of these at full retail. This brand is fantastic and these boots are exceptional at two times the price. Buy a pair. Thanks again to Helm.

Pretty happy so far

I haven’t had as much chance to wear these as I would like. I do rotate shoes and boots. I do expect as winter weather becomes a thing the Lou will be a more go to. So far the break in has gone smoothly and I have worn them all day a few times and are very comfortable. I have also received compliments on them. They have been easy to care for, so far I have used the Black Rock on them and like the out come. I am thinking I will use the Otter Wax for better weather resistance before winter. I fully expect with care to get several years out of these boots based on the quality.

The Lou

I have owned these for a few weeks now. After wearing them about a week and breaking them in, they are becoming more and more comfortable to wear. The sole is very soft and comfortable, and overall the quality is very very good. I will definitely purchase more products from Helm in the future.

The commute

The original idea was to find a pair of boots I could commute on my motorcycle with and not have to change shoes when I got to work. Although not made specifically as motorcycle boots my new Lou's appear sturdy enough to ride my Ducati to work and they're definitely stylish enough for work. I purchased the Lou's in double EE and realized they were just a little too big. Alyssa made sure the exchange process was painless and my new size D's are a much better fit. Alyssa even offered to pay the cobbler fee if I needed to stretch them. You don't see that kind of Customer Service everyday. I've already recommended Helm boots to several of my co-workers.

First pair of Helm boots and very pleased so far. Had a small break in period but the more I wear them the more comfortable they become. Great looking boots and can't wait to start developing their patina for that lived in look.
