Reviews

Great boots, lighter than other Limmers but nubuck leather gets cut up by trail rocks. Not for rough mountain trails—for those choose Midweight or Standard.

Pros

  • Sturdy
  • Ankle support
  • Lighter than most traditional leather

Cons

  • Nubuck leather rips on sharp rocks

Have used many leather mountain boots. Even the Standard weight Limmers are light by old school standards (compared to Galibier Super Guides etc). The Standard and even the Midweight are great, provide support that more modern boots often don’t.

This ultralight is similar—same support—but won’t hold up to cuts and isn’t that much lighter. Go for the heavier ones.

These boots can easily qualify as sturdy and supportive as midweights. The only boots that ever came as close in comfort for me were Vasque Sundowners, and they fell apart in 2 years. I've had the Limmers for a year now, and other than the usual scuff marks, they're holding up much better than other cemented boots I've had.
