A clean and classic profile make these some of the most versatile boots you can buy right now.

Of course, as you might expect from HELM Boots — and rightfully so — the specs of these handsome leather boots are on-point, from the construction to the craftsmanship and heritage. Despite the fact that HELM is just over a decade old, that’s mighty impressive. To be more specific, the Balthazar leather is rugged-yet-refined and should age quite nicely over time. What’s more, the narrow profile makes the HELM Zind Boots dressier, arguably, than others in your rotation. That means you should feel comfortable wearing them with everything from slim denim and a henley to a white Oxford shirt and tan chinos. Yes indeed, when opportunity knocks to pick up your new favorite leather boots, answer the call and get the HELM Zind Boots.

The HELM Boots Holt Boots come in two highly versatile, rich leathers: Dark Grey (wear them with stonewashed light grey jeans and a classic white T-shirt) or Dark Natural (ready to be paired with your favorite denim and a waxed trucker jacket).

See Now, Buy Now: The Helm Hollis Boots Are The Perfect Boots for Everyday Wear

Richly crafted leather boots that’ll stand up to plenty of winter wear.

The search for the perfect winter boots is over — your search, that is. You’ve previously seen Helm Boots on the blog (and I’ve long been a fan of this Austin-based brand), but they’ve outdone themselves here. To wit: The Helm Hollis Boots are perhaps the best leather boots to step into at this very moment — read on to find out why, naturally. Now, let’s get one thing straight right off the bat. These aren’t a pair of full-on snow boots (which often sacrifice function for form), nor are they ultra-sleek boots that are almost … too dressy. No sir, these rugged leather boots toe the line between practical and stylish, so while they might not be 100 percent polar vortex-ready, that’s not the point — a well-stocked boot collection features a bit of everything, and the Helm Hollis Boots are simply a darn-fine pair of stylish leather boots. It starts from the ground up with these boots, and that’s a very good thing for December and beyond. We’re talking, in this case, about the use of a mini-lug rubber sole for added traction on slippery streets, topped off with Helm’s white midsole for a bit of signature style and comfort.

Not one, not two, but three terrific color options from Helm Boots.

In short, these are tough leather boots that will age exceptionally well over time, especially in the rich shade of Teak — although they’re also available in two additional colors as shown above. In fact, you might recognize the Hollis Teak Boots from my Instagram — it’s been a  pleasure to wear them these past few weeks through fall and into winter, and I think you’ll feel the same way. The key here is the beautiful Balthazar leather that should age gracefully, while the option to add round or waxed cotton laces gives these a more polished or dressy feel. And in that regard, I’ve found that the Helm Hollis Boots are wearable with everything from slim tan chinos and a chambray shirt at the office to rugged camp pants and my favorite henley on the weekend — without missing a beat, in fact. To make a long story short, I love the Helm Hollis Boots, and I think you will, too.
