    Helm Boots Should Get A Review

    There are a lot of new boot companies out there offering boots in the 200 dollar range which are constructed in Mexico or elsewhere; I am really not that enticed by them. I prefer to pay the extra 100 or 200 dollars for US made boots, but many of the offerings feel limited in styles and colors. HELM boots are constructed in the US and the styles look really great. I would love to see a break down of these boots compared against boots in their price range.

    A few notes that stick out to me. Many of their boots are made from Chromexal leather. I think this is an interesting choice thanks to the high pullup of the leather. They are blake stitched, meaning they may be more flexible. Lasts seem to have more restrictive style oriented toe boxes than the more worker driven red-wing and wolverine equivalents.

    I just think it would be a good addition to the cycle of Allen Edmonds, 1901, and Loakes which pop up here on a regular basis. Any thoughts?

          I'm not fond of the white insert in the soles.

                    I can't be the only one to notice that generally, only sellers that have an affiliate program that the website can make money from get reviewed on the main site. There are exceptions from time to time, I think, but people do need to make a living.
                    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

                        If their "sizing guide" is any indicator, if you're not a D width good luck finding something that works. Their advice for sizing runs all over the place then lands on recommending whatever size the magic 8 ball recommends.

                        At the price point I'd probably stick to wolverine or red wing, as they're a known quality.

                        I like some of the styles but just not keen on the investment to find out they're way below standards.
