See Now, Buy Now: These Stylish Leather Dress Shoes from HELM Are a New Must-Buy

Cool, classic dress shoes in handsome leather.

There are some things that shouldn’t be overlooked as we roll through summer — namely, you’re still going to need some of the best leather dress shoes on your feet, particularly as we all return (very slowly but surely) to dressier environments. That’s why it’s time for our second, easy-to-buy entry this week in our See Now, Buy Now series. Luckily for you and me, HELM Boots is here to amp your style after quarantine with some of the best men’s dress shoes: The HELM Boots Nils Wheat Dress Shoes are one-of-a-kind, checking all the right boxes when it comes to dependable, dressy-yet-versatile style. As it were, HELM Boots already makes, well, your favorite rugged leather boots (see this post for more background), yet these stylish leather dress shoes carry that same DNA in a lower-profile offering.

As with any offering from HELM, it starts with quality construction for long-lasting style. In this case, that means Blake rapid-stitch construction (which stitches through the outsole, insole and exterior of the shoe) and handsome Castello leather in a cool Wheat colorway, to go along with a tough mini-lug rubber sole. That means these are some of the best dress shoes — for the guy who has a tough time putting away his leather boots (guilty as charged). Oh, and if you’re new to HELM Boots? Remember that you can get $50 off your first pair, plus free shipping, if you pick these up.

When it really comes down to it, tough-yet-versatile leather dress shoes are tough to come by — so when you find a pair like these, you really should act  quickly. You can wear the HELM Boots Nils Wheat Dress Shoes with casual classics — think dark indigo denim, rolled at the ankle, alongside your favorite Oxford shirt. You can also rock these durable dress shoes as they were intended to be worn: With sharp-as-can-be picks like tailored chinos (I love Todd Snyder chinos, FYI!) and a timeless polo. When you really want to step up your game, of course, the HELM Boots Nils Wheat Dress Shoes can be worn alongside a tailored khaki cotton suit (again, Todd Snyder‘s your go-to for one of the best men’s suits, while we’re on the topic). And because that Wheat leather is rich but dependable, you can rest assured that these are dress shoes you can wear in the fall, too — just team them with your favorite denim shirt and a classic cardigan, plus that same pair of dark indigo denim. Now then: Dress shoes that can do it all? That’s what you’re getting here, folks. Happy shopping.
