User Review: Limmer (custom)
Use: rough trail, heavy packing, anything you think you can do
Break-in Period: 1 to 2 months
Weight: 5 lbs
Price Paid: $395
I got my custom made Limmers in 1963 for $32.50. For over 30 years they have been comfortable, water proof and supportive of my feet.
While a little heavier than newer "hi tech" models they handle rough trails very well...providing great angle support even when I have done something stupid. A few years ago they were resoled and they look like new...but as a precaustion I ordered a new pair...which should be ready in 1998 or 1999. They also have a standard model available off the shelf....for about $280... which should also be very nice. I can't reccommend a product more highly than Limmer. Given the years of good service they are cheap...a bargain. Just make sure that you get them fitted correctly.
