Helm boots has built a reputation for its stylish, sturdy footwear and its distinct business practices, manufacturing all its products in the USA. Now, the Austin, Texas–based company has a retail store that suits its reputation: Everything about it is American-made. The high-ceiling shop, on the city’s bustling East Side, is a minimalist space fashioned almost entirely from salvaged materials. Its walls are made of wood from the floors of an old warehouse. Its checkout counter is a repurposed machinist’s table. A discarded pallet, left over from construction, has been turned into an ottoman that sits at the center of the store. Light fixtures hang from the branches of a fallen tree. It is, in other words, a fitting backdrop for Helm’s classic-looking, handcrafted boots, which are designed in Austin and manufactured in Maine using the finest domestic leather. In addition to the latest, greatest footwear — like Helm’s chic Sam Navy, with a stitched-leather dress sole  — the store carries a range of shoe-care products and a host of American-made home goods and accessories. Think sophisticated fragrances from New York’s CB I Hate Perfume, rugged camping backpacks from Colorado-based Topo Designs and leather tote bags by Stash Co., which operates from an old mattress factory in Sealy, Texas. Like the store, the items on the shelves reflect the Helm aesthetic, which stresses concern for the environment and a keen awareness for how things are made. www.helmboots.com
