Just ordered a pair of Limmer customs and picked up a pair of mid weights while waiting the 18 months for those to be built. The mid weights are what I think a hiking boot should be. Full leather, heavy soles and very well built. Took a couple months to break them in but their ready to go now. I've been using the Limmer boot grease every couple of weeks as Pete suggested. They look better and better every time I put it on. I might have a problem.

I have been interested in Limmer boots but have yet to get my hands on a pair. They look like very good boots if that is the style that you like. Please let me know after you get a couple hundred miles on them how you feel. I'm very interested.

I see not too many Lowa supporters! :? I have a pair of Lowa Bora's that were very comfortable out of the box and waterproof. I hiked in them almost immediately after purchasing them... I got lucky there! They're very supporting and keep my feet warm in the colder months. However, I do prefer my vibram fivefinger KSOs in warmer conditions!

Ian I haven't taken them off since I got them. I took the first month to break them in. I had hot spots in various places during that time. I've climbed 4-4k's with them so far and a couple of smaller peaks. They are fully broken in at this point. They are heavy but that does not bother me. I get compliments on them all the time. I'm going to do my best to wear them out before the customs are ready but I have a feeling they won't cooperate.

For summer day hikes and not expecting a lot of mud I use my trail runners/every day runners; La Sportiva Wildcats. Awesome grip on these. I originaly picked them up for trail running and then decided to use them for all running. They make a GTX version of these, but I haven't tried them.

For muddy adventures and carrying heavier loads I have a pair of Raichle/Mammut Mt. Trail XT GTX that are awesome. I'm on my second pair. Once again... amazing traction and completely water proof. I feel I can walk up anything in these.

For winter use I picked up a pair of Scarpa Triolet Pro GTX, I got lucky and found them for 30% off last fall. Mainly used for snowshoeing and hybrid crampon compatibility. Hopefully I'll undertake some more ambitious winter assaults this year. As close to a full-on mountaineering boot as I'll ever get. Stiff sole with decent forward ankle flex, completely water proof. Very solid build quality.

Everyone's feet are different, go with what works for you.

Check out the Danner boot company out of the Pacific Northwest. Great boots, well made, durable, etc.

Beat the heck out of them and they never let me down. Probably put well over 1000 miles on them.
