Meet Emmett

About Emmett

3D printed in flexible, responsive TPU & handcrafted with buttery soft, durable leather, Emmett is a closed toe slip-on mule that’s as versitile for neighborhood outings as it is comfortable for WFH meetings.

A radically new way to collaborate

HELM & HILOS were brought together around the belief that how we make things matters. HELM is a brand steeped in craft, bringing timeless design to quality footwear. HILOS is the enabling technology for the future of footwear, celebrating craft while driving a new kind of performance, making on-demand and designing for a circular future. We both believe in the power of collaboration - together we can make our footprint lighter and our impact greater.

See it in action

Digitally Crafted

Built like no other

Every pair of Emmetts is 3D-printed-to-order & made to be unmade, recycling every component for a second life. It starts with a digital model formed directly from the last’s curvatures, combining the traditional insole, midsole, & outsole into one unit that performs as all three.

About the tech

A lattice-like digital mesh acts as the insole, designed to support your arch while cushioning your ball and heel. Beneath this cushy layer is our version of a midsole, engineered to feel light and flexible without losing durability. Lastly, the bottom of the Emmett houses a tread pattern that keeps you feeling secure and grounded with every step.

Where technology meets craftsmanship.

Individually made for you

While Emmett is digitally native, every pair is handcrafted and made individually for you only after you make your order. Made with premium vegetable tanned leathers, sustainably sourced and vetted by the Leather Working Group, every pair is meticulously sewn onto our 3D printed soles with an ultra durable, heavyweight thread for a perfect fit that's made to last.
