HELM Boots Pops Up on West 3rd Street!

September 6, 2016

We’re excited to welcome HELM Boots to ‪Los Angeles‬ this month as they take over the Concept 8366 1/2 space on West Third Street! Based out of Austin, TX, HELM is known for their American-made boots and casual footwear, all designed in Austin, then hand-crafted by boot-makers in Maine.
