Heavy duty, will eventually conform to your feet, may outlast the wearer. I have over 500 GPS miles on these boots, including the 110-mile Tour de Mont Blanc. When you are out in the middle of nowhere, you don't want your GoreTex booties to rip, or your glues to unbind, or whatever miracle material du jour letting go. I am 61, and old school on many things. If you are going from your Lexus to spend a few hours on the trail all plugged in to your fitbit and iPhone...these are quite heavy, and… Full review
Well constructed full leather boot for anyone willing to make an investment in a boot that will last decades. Perfect for hiking, backpacking, snowshoeing, or any activity in which support and traction are important. I received my Limmer Standards as a gift towards the end of 2013 and have had them on my feet for most of the time since then. Comfort and Fit: Like any New Hampshire relationship, it takes a long time for Limmers to become comfortable with your feet. But with steady determination… Full review
Trust your gut instinct. If you think they're too tight, don't buy them despite what they say about the break-in process. There's no turning back once you try to start breaking them in and you'll be out a lot of money and some toenails to boot. Advertised as the best hiking boot of all time, and it very well could be, as long as the fit is right. I went to the shop in Intervale and had my feet measured. I have been backpacking for almost 20 years and have always worn size 11 boots. I was told that… Full review
Very very well made, but will probably take some time and pain to break in. Just received my non-custom Limmer Standard boots so I can’t comment on the break-in period or longevity (update to come). I do have a pair of custom White’s boots, Salomon Quest 4D GTX hiking boots and several pairs of Allen Edmonds goodyear welt dress shoes; all of which are fantastic and very well made. In comparison the Limmer’s are equally well made and built like a tank. I have no doubt in my mind that these… Full review
Had my first pair of Limmers Standards working on the AMC Trail Crew in 1969 and 70. They lasted 21 years and 4 resoles. After a ~30 year hiatus I purchased the stock Mid-weights. Lov'em, they fit great right out of the box, although they will require a good break-in period. I'm 64 and certain these will be the last hiking boots I will ever have to purchase. Full review
