SPECIFICATIONS of the Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Shoe
"Very comfortable, cool, and light for hiking shoes"
These Merrell Moab's are the most comfortable trail shoes I have owned. They are very breathable so they keep my feet cool and very soft. Even better they come in wide sizes which I am very happy about. I even bought the Women's version for my girlfriend and she loves them too!
my partner and i have joined the hiking group recently. i needed a good pair of shoes and he recommended merrell. i tried them at the store and loved them so i decided to order online. i look forward to wearing it this sunday hike.
"Bought these to hike Mt Washington - great shoe"
Long time Merrell loyalist. First time going with a low cut, lightweight, ventilated shoe. Love it. Great support, light, cool and comfortable going across steep rocky terrain.. Spent minimal time breaking them it before going to the top of Mt Washington and back.
I've only owned these shoes a short while and I'm already impressed. Very breathable and lightweight. I bought them strictly for hiking but I find myself wearing them during the day also running around in them.
My dad and I both hike in these shoes. They are nice and lightweight, but have an awesome and grippy sole. Merrell makes the best hiking shoes out there. Been through water, mud, ice, rocks and haven't stopped once.
Took these out for 30 days in Canada of some rugged canoeing and portaging. These boots work great for canoeing. They provide enough ankle support for portaging a canoe over head, but enough drainage to where I could push off and not worry about trench foot. They dry fairly well if they're left in the sun at least better than other boots that I have used. No blister concerns and no breaking in concerns. The one worry was one of the plastic supporters in the heel came out, but that was after a burley 5 mile portage thats over grown with trees and things. It's never been a concern for me before and I've used these shoes countless times. They're great I prefer the hightop ones, but that's personal preference. I would recommend these for light hiking, canoeing, day hikes, and day trips. These shouldn't be used for too serious of backpacking our mountaineering.
As the director of an Adventure Challenge program, I am walking on wooded trails and high rope cables 3-4 days a week, spring-fall. My first pair of Ventilators lasted 5 years. I still wear them, but the tread is worn down pretty thin. When I went to backpack Isle Royale National Park a few years ago, I decided last minute to ditch the heavy hiking boots and wear my Vents instead. Since that time, they're all I wear on the trails, unless I'm expecting snow or deep "muck" during the rainy season. GREAT SHOE!
I bought these shoes, somewhat on a whim, a few weeks before I had to go out to California to film a race. In the few days I was out there, I really put these shoes to the test: climbing up a mountain, sliding down a gravel hill a few times (even when I wasn't trying), and sprinting from the photographer area to the winners podium. After all was said and done, my feet were a little sore but if it weren't for these bad boys I wouldn't have been walking.
