Last month, Helmut Lang launched a new denim line known as Helmut Lang Jeans. Now, the renowned brand is collaborating with talented artist Sarah Morris for a special run of hand-painted Nocona cowboy boots.
Taking inspiration from the hand-painted cowboy boots of the Helmut Lang Spring 1994 runway showcase, the label’s designers and editor-in-residence Alix Browne aimed to create footwear that furthered the “ethos of the brand in engaging with artists in unexpected ways.” A limited-edition effort, the hand-painted cowboy boots will be limited to only 25 pairs. Besides the unique paint-work, these boots are also stamped and dipped by Morris herself.
You can check out Helmut Lang and Sarah Morris’ new Nocona cowboy boots collaboration above. The boots will retail for $1,500 USD and will hit the shelves of Helmut Lang’s physical locations, SSENSE and the official Helmut Lang website.

For the relaunch of Helmut Lang Jeans, Editor-in-Residence Alix Browne commissioned artist Sarah Morris to hand paint 25 pairs of Nocona cowboy boots. This special project pays tribute to the Helmut Lang Spring 1994 runway show, which featured hand-painted cowboy boots. Each boot, as Morris says, "appear readymade, but are dipped and stamped in my colors." The boots are available now at HL stores, WWW.HELMUTLANG.COM and at @ssense
