User Review: Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Mid
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $90
Used the Merrell Moab (both mid and reg) and the usual result is 1,800 miles out of each pair. Used these while hiking the AT, PCT, CDT, and the ECT. Even ran a 101.8 mile race with them and had no blisters.
- After 1,800 miles, when they start to die, they die fast.
- Insoles are pitiful. Immediately must install something more substantial.
I use the Merrell Moab for hiking, biking, and a clean pair for everyday use. If in the mountains and/or snow for extended amount of time I like the mid cut and use the low cut for gentler terrain.
Used the waterproof material once and found it takes longer to dry out plus the extra price isn't cost effective. I find the shoe gets equally wet whether gore-tex or not. On any pair it seems the shoe strings don't like to remain tied for very long.
Also, when I first notice the shoe is deteriorating, it is time to start looking for a new pair because they die fast, but that is usually around the 1,800 mile mark. I love my Merrells!
