Following last month's sneakerhead takeover, West Third Street's monthly pop-up space continues its footwear focus into the new year with Helm Boots. The Austin-based brand is holding down the fort at Liberty Fairs's revolving shop now through Sunday, January 31st.
Designed in the Lone Star State and handmade in Maine and Arkansas, the all-American brand is stocking its menswear collection of timeless casual and dress boots ($369 to $569); we're told a few unisex styles and a handful of women's sizes in the Pablo moto boot will also be available. To complement Helm's classic kickers, NYC-based Krammer & Stoudt is also offering its Cali-inspired men's apparel and accessories during the month-long run.
Helm Boots at Concept 8366 & 1/2 is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from 12 to 6pm; closed Monday.
