    I've been on the look out for the perfect boot for me and I've come across these awesome handmade boots by a company called HELM.

    Has anyone had any expierence with this company? I like the "Ray-Ray".

    I dont find the designs offensive but the 'process' page is a load of crap. a cemented construction shoe/boot isn't a 'work of art', nor does it take 5 days to make. and I wish brands would stop throwing the term 'hand-stitched' around. A dude working a sewing machine doesnt make it hand-stitched

    Might be spam, but I rather like some of the styles.

    One good response in this thread. The designs aren't bad. I kind of like the Emi.

    Just want to follow up on these, does anyone own a pair/have experience?

    I like these Ray Ray in denim . Don't want to drop $445 on a shoe that will give out in 2 years. Also not sure I like the white band...

    Thanks. Pic below:

    Agreed, some of the styling is alright.

    But I've seen these in person. Believe me, you want no part of them at anywhere near retail price. It's a cemented sole and corrected grain fiesta. Timberland Abington hits some similar looks, but at a price that's much more in line with the materials used.

    Yo, stop with the "handmade" crap.
    All boots, even sweatshop boots made in China are handmade.

    Hi All,
    I own a pair of the Helm Ray-Ray boots. They are beautiful shoes, very very comfortable. I am a size 13D- willing to part for mine for the right price.
