The J. Peterman Company catalog may make outrageous claims like this at the drop of a hat, but… well… we really do know individuals who have spent most of their lives searching for the perfect boot. This, in our opinion, is it– HELM Handmade makes a wide variety of swoon-worthy, made-to-last footwear, but we're particularly taken by this pair of leather beauties. As for the paneling: some may say, to other editions of the Ray Ray boot, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Right. Don’t fix it– unless you’re planning to patch that bad boy up with some Raleigh denim. In that case, well… we can think of nothing better. Get them here.
