The design and philosophy behind Limmer’s boots began in 1919 with Peter Limmer, Sr. In 1921, he achieved his master status in bootmaking and began working in Vachendorf, a small village in the Bavarian Alps. The superb quality of his work spread quickly and in 1925, he moved his family to the United States. The superb quality of his work spread quickly and in 1925, he moved his family to the United States. In 1939 Limmer was awarded the first patent for a ski boot in the United States. They could be used with wood skies from Ashland, New Hampshire and “European bindings” made in America.
Over the past 100 years, Limmer has stayed true to the quality and standards that Peter Limmer, Sr. employed. This unique dedication to craft has been appreciated by our customers and has given the boots legendary status in hiking circles, where the punishment of continuous use has repeatedly demonstrated the unsurpassable quality of Limmer.
Limmer Boots have been used on every type of terrain, including on the slopes of Mount Everest, but part of unique design remains in the boot’s crossover quality. Limmer boots combine the flexibility of a hiking boot, ruggedness to support heavily loaded packs over rocky terrain, and the torsional rigidity to be lightly used with crampons. There have been few design changes over the past 100 years. Where technological advances in materials have made it possible to improve the quality and performance of the boots, those changes have been incorporated.
