User Review: Merrell Men's Moab Gore-Tex XCR
Price Paid: $75 on ebay
Just started wearing my second pair of these Moabs. The first lasted just over two years of heavy trekking before they lost the waterproofing.
This is a stiffer shoe than others so it keeps my feet in a more rigid plane. I'm an older guy, and my feet don't get sore as with softer, more flexible hikers.
