rated 5 of 5 stars I needed boots for my body to hike my hike. Yes, they are heavy. Yes, those blessed with good body structure can hike with minimalist footwear. But it ain't me, babe. I have had foot, leg, lower back, and posture issues for years. (I tried trail runners, and to push my old boots into a new century with limited success.) Put me into Limmer Standards and those issues go away. As a grandson of a shoemaker, I should have paid attention to his scorn of my Cuban heeled pointy black shoes from the mid… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Best hiking boot. These boots are far superior to any of the high tech crap (aka low manufacturing cost boots).

I wasn't trying to make a fashion statement (I see where J Crew is now trying to sell the Danners).  I just wanted something that… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars I recently retired my Standards after 5 years of trail work. During this time they stood up to days and weeks of dirt pushing, rock kicking, submersion in mud and water, getting knicked by pulaskis, a couple of close calls with chainsaws, and hiking on all manner of surfaces. The maintenance they received was negligible. Despite this, they have outlasted any other boot I have worn. My White's Smoke Jumpers are a close second, but the Limmers take it and are more comfortable to hike in. Though I… Full review
