User Review: Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $99
I'm giving these a 2. They are really comfortable shoes. But the traction is terrible.
- These shoes feel like they where made for my feet.
- Poor traction
- Poor durability
- Way too expensive for what they deliver.
I feel so out of control hiking steep trails. It's work to keep my feet from slipping and thus it takes more effort to hike. These are best for hiking rolling hills, logging roads and fairly low angle trails.
I have La Sportiva trail runners and Salewa Firetail that feel like wearing suction cups on my feet, super grippy; I can hop up and down scree slops and not feel like I'm going ice skating. The Moabs for the price are terrible for durability. After just two months of owning the, there are holes already where my toes flex and the area where the ball of my feet are are just abut warn flat.
Merrell has really gone downhill, I would expect that kind of shoe for $30.
