Austin based shoe company Helm and Raleigh Denim from North Carolina decided to get together in manufacturing a new shoe, the RAY RAY (that’s the name of one of Helm’s owner’s uncle’s – Uncle Raymond, kinda cute!). This is the first time Raleigh has ever allowed another brand to use their American-loomed denim fabric in another product. The collaboration was a good fit since both HELM and Raleigh believe in slow, handmade items that get better with age. This shoe is made in Italy and has a hand-brushed calfskin exterior from Holland. It comes in sizes 38-46 including half sizes, is water resistant and retails for $445!
