Helly Hansen shoes – From Scandinavian sailors to stylish footwear
The Helly Hansen brand grew out of a business started by a Norwegian sea captain and his wife, when they began manufacturing sailors’ clothing from linen soaked in linseed oil. That was in 1877. Within 5 years they had sold over 10,000 pieces and began exporting their products not long afterwards. The company has come a long way since those days but still retains its close association with the sea and its innovative outlook. The range of footwear is in big demand by sailors, skiers and adventurers who need the protection during bad conditions, while also enjoying the elegance these Scandinavian shoes have.
Looking after Helly Hansen shoes
Looking after these shoes is as simple as letting them do their job and making sure that they are clean and dry at the end of the day. If you work in and around salt water, it’s worth rinsing your shoes off at the end of the voyage, as the salt can have a degrading effect on even the toughest materials. Applying a protective waterproofing agent can also be advantageous. Let shoes dry naturally in the air and keep them out of direct sunlight. Stuff the shoes with paper to help absorb excess moisture. Use a shoehorn to protect the backs of your shoes when putting them on.
