Austin: Helm Handmade

Joshua Bingaman has always had a thing for men's shoes and boots. He met some highfalutin folks on the inside of the bespoke footwear world and created Helm Handmade, an Austin-based men's boutique shoe design company. These aren't massed-produced mounds of leather and laces, but handmade kicks that only the most discerning appreciate.
One pair of boots take up to five days to make. The leather is hand-cut, hand-stitched, and soles are hand-nailed. That's a whole lotta love that goes into something that you put on your feet. But then again, it's always about the shoes, isn't it?
