HELM started with a single step back in 2009 when they sold their first pair of boots. They were straight forward and built to last. Since then, HELM have spent everyday perfecting modern footwear.
There are over 153 steps that go into making a pair of HELM boots. From boots to dress shoes to sneakers, each pair is thoughtfully designed and crafted using traditional footwear construction. All of the boots and shoes are fully resolable so you are not just buying another pair of boots but investing in a pair you will love for years to come. HELM has a small team of five people and not only dedicated to their craft but dedicated to each and every customer.
The Xander is designed with minimalist and modern aesthetics in mind, creating a versatile sneaker that can be dressed up or down. Constructed with Krumenauer leather and the customer favorite cup sole, the Xander is both beautiful and comfortable and perfect for any adventure, both day and night.

• Behind The Name
The Xander is named after Death & Co’s Alexander Day, most famous for creating some of the world’s best watering holes and being a multiple book author and James Beard award winner. Just about everything he touches inspires us, and he also just happens to be the younger and more talented brother of our CEO. Rarely behind the bar anymore, you can be assured that he’s always working on the next location, helping mentor up and coming bartenders and small business owners, or sipping on a simple whiskey at his house in Maine.
