User Review: Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: ~$100
I like these so much I'm on my second pair. They are comfortable, fit right, and hold up well.
- Sizes for larger feet
- Laces come untied
- Thin Insoles
I'm on my second pair of these shoes since I discovered them. I have a hard time finding shoes in my size, and these fit my 13 EE foot great.
My two biggest complaints are that the shoe laces seem to always want to come untied, so it is necessary to time them in a double knot at times. The insoles are also a bit on the thin side, but that's something I change in almost every pair of shoes I buy.
I have put a hundred or so miles on my newest pair (about six months old at time of writing) and they are holding up very well. There is hardly any noticeable wear on them. Both pair are the Bark Brown color, and they are great for not showing dirt.
My older pair I had for close to two years and I have walked a few hundred miles in them. They are still holding together, but I had to switch because my feet started to widen.
The tread held up and is holding up well to the miles of abuse. The terrain in my area is often rocky, rarely to a I feel a sharp rock poke into my foot, when I do it is usually at one of the mesh sides and not through the bottom.
Because of the ventilation they are a great summer hiking shoe. If you are looking for something more water resistant, you may want to look elsewhere. Otherwise, these will help keep your feet cool and make the hiking experience more enjoyable.
