Merrell MQM Flex 2

rated 5 of 5 stars
photo: Merrell MQM Flex 2 trail shoe

I prefer the MQM Flex trail runners for three-season hiking, I have several different styles of Merrell shoes. I find the MQM Flex very comfortable and light. They are my go-to hiking shoe. I also wear them daily throughout the day everywhere. My granddaughter is a big MQM fan too and wears them while playing soccer and other sports. MQM Flex shoes are trail magic to my feet. I don't wear the Gore-tex model or have a pair as I don't hike in snow and prefer the breathability of the MQM Flex shoe.

I don't wear the Gore-tex MQM Flex shoe. I do wear the MQM Flex, and they are my go-to hiking shoe. They fit well while providing the comfort and protection needed for extended hiking.

They are low cut and lightweight, durable and have excellent traction. They are trail magic to my feet.


I have hiked 300+ miles in MQM Flex shoes and can't wait to finish my AT thru hike in them.They have just enough sole to cushion your feet from rocks and sharp objects, a strong toe box to protect your toes. The insoles are thick enough for comfort and seem to wick away sweat so my feet don't stink at the end of the day. I love my MQM Flex shoes and won't leave home without them, making them the perfect shoe for a hike in the woods.
