Loved prior versions. Latest version (shoe has 10/18 date on tongue) is uncomfortable.
- Great sole
- Lots of tread
- Solid upper
- Little insole padding at toes
- Narrow at foot midsection
Had this latest incarnation for about a month and I cannot get them comfortable. I have tried lacing them in different ways and nothing works. I finally put a different insole in and that has helped. But, overall something has changed in manufacturing and I would give this latest bunch a pass.
Tried on in store and they seemed fine, but stiff. I had hoped they would break in, but they are not getting any more comfortable.
I have owned previous versions, the Moab and earlier Moab 2's, but this pair is a dud. My wife also has a pair and the stitching at the toe is starting to shred after only a handful of hikes.
