LIMMER BOOTS: HAND MADE ORIGINAL FROM THE 1970S. Excellent Condition, Size 12
By Limmer, Peter and Sons, New Hampshire
[ SOLD ]

Add to wish list


Detailed Product Description
REAL 1970s LIMMER BOOTS. MADE IN THE USA.  And we know who climbed in them!

MADE BY LEGENDARY CUSTOM CLIMBING BOOT MAKER PETER LIMMER AND SONS OF INTERVALE, NEW HAMPSHIRE, IN THE 1970s.

Below is a picture of Limmer Boots, with Vibram rubber soles. Limmers were usually insulated, and had a padded collar above the ankle. They were also made not insulated for summer hikers.

The pair we have for sale has a leather sole and Vibram Lug Soles on the sole.



Whose Nailed Boots are these?


These were MY boots, Michael Chessler of Chessler Books.

We have his pair of Limmer Boots. They are in Fine condition, and are about size 12. They are used, but have decades of climbing left in them. Yes, they can still be used today!

The leather uppers and soles are in fine condition, as is the tongue and insulation. Excellent condition although they need a good cleaning

Postage charges will be based on weight, 5 pounds. About $15 USA, $45 Canada, $60-$100 Foreign. If you buy something lrdr on your order such as books, either the whole order has to go Priority Mail, or we can send the boots separately by Priority Mail, the books by Media Rate.


Personal Note:

I used these insulated Limmer Boots for backpacking and climbing. They are 1970s vintage, were sturdy, comfortable, but heavy.

They accepted crampons well. If you need a pair of vintage crampons, that fit these books (or another pair of boots) please let us know and we can sell you a pair at a reasonable price $20-$50 usually.) I used Grivel crampons but the broke a long time ago and I discarded my old set, but we have dozens of extra sets of crampons in stock.
