Moab Mid Waterproof

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Merrell Moab Mid Waterproof upholds the manufacturer's good reputation, except for one major issue. They are very comfortable, relatively wear resistant (considering it is a lightweight boot), and provide excellent support and traction on the trail, but are not in my experience waterproof after the first 6 months. I will continue to use my Moabs for fair weather fun, day hikes, and work, but will not rely on them for keeping my feet dry over multi-day trips. I got the Merrell Moab Mid Waterproofs… Full review

Moab Ventilator

rated 4 of 5 stars I wear these shoes daily and during hiking. I highly recommend these shoes, especially if you wear a larger size shoe. These shoes fit true to size. I wear a size 12 and these shoes have fit my foot better than any other hiking shoe I have tried. I tried Salomons and they were very narrow for my size of foot and I do not have a wide foot. The laces last for years. I am on my second pair and I still wear my first pair that I bought at least 5 years ago and the laces are still intact. No break-in… Full review

Moab Mid Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars These are lightweight, comfortable, waterproof, and breathable, which translates to cool in the heat. I've only had these for a few months, but we had springtime temperatures for a couple of weeks (highs in the 70's and 80's) so I can attest to their comfort in those temperatures. I've worn these all day and other than normal trail dust had nothing to tend to when I got home. They have good traction on most surfaces even when the surface is a flat rock in running water. Which brings up another… Full review

Switchback Gore-Tex

rated 5 of 5 stars Bought them in Nov 2005 for a trip to Germany during winter. Excellent warm and comfortable shoes for temperatures as low as -15°C. Afterwards, in Jan 2007 I went to Torres del Paine National Park in the Chilean Patagonia for a 100 miles long trek around the park, and again the boots were sublime, no blisters nor hotspots in the whole journey. Ever since I got them I've been trekking an average of 40 miles a year, and they are still going as smooth as new. If you're able to get a hold of a pair… Full review

Energis Mid Waterproof

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Bought 11 months ago. Used for only hikes and long walks the first four months then everyday wear after that. Typical Merrell, comfortable and durable. I must say I'm surprised by the durability of these boots. With the soft sole, cloth eyelets and light weight I didn't expect them to last long. Now after 10 months I'm halfway through the tread and they still work great. My left boot always leaked even when new. I didn't expect the waterproofing to be as good as say a Goretex lined boot. The cloth… Full review
