For a lightweight boot that will keep you comfortable all day in the outdoors, the Moab Mid GTX will deliver on durability and quality every time.
The Moab is made from a combination of leather for strength and mesh for breathability – so you get the best of both worlds. The interior mesh lining is breathable and treated with antimicrobial solution so you wear them day in, day out without any nasty odour build up. The cushioning around your ankle will prevent any rubbing or blisters, and the bellow tongue will keep debris from flicking up into your shoe while you’re on the trail.
For shock absorption, the cushion in the heel will minimise the impact from the trail, so you’ll be able to head out again the next day with no problem. The synthetic leather toe cap will give the tops of your feet that protection from getting knocked about during your outdoor exploits. This boot uses the Vibram multi-sport plus sole which really helps with braking when you’re on rougher, and generally more demanding terrain.
This was my second time purchasing the merrel moab for women. After thousands of kms in my first pair, the shoes were thinning out a bit and I was only 2 weeks out from a 100km event. I did only 60kms walking in the new pair before the event and held up with no hot spots or blisters. The shoes are quite thick and padded which is such a plus when it comes to blister prevention. Incredibly comfortable boots that are a perfect width for me, causing no chaffing. For a hiking boot they're light and have excellent grip on all terrain. I wear orthotics, and found I can only wear a full length orthotic in these shoes as the shorter ones cut through the gortex and compromise the waterproof capability. I highly recommend this shoe.
This was my second choice but am so glad I could make it. Deceptive at first sight..but once you put it on and walk with it, it's like a pair of comfy slippers with all the walking attributes you need. Pleasantly surprised and very happy with them. Great support round the ankles; without being 'clunky' and I look forward to walking in them for many months. Great traction too. Very pleased.
