Before he founded HELM, his beloved line of work boots, Austin-based entrepreneur Joshua Bingaman found success in the coffee and shoe businesses. Bingaman’s a founder of Progress Coffee and Owl Tree Roasting, which any Austin hipster or Whole Foods regular will recognize, as well as Subterranean Shoe Room in San Francisco. Launched in 2010, HELM specializes in handmade shoes and boots constructed from exotic leathers (Horween Leather Company’s Chromexcel, anyone?) and raw denim. These boots are global affairs: Designed in Austin, they are made in Istanbul using leather from Holland and Australia and soles from Italy and France. By the time your HELMs reach your feet, they've already taken a world tour.
Now that fall’s arrived in full force, the footwear rules are changing. You can finally break out the boots again—and this sale has the picks to help you do it right. From dressed-up chukkas to sturdy workhorses, there’s something for every style. Stock up, lace up, and get moving.
