I have put these shoes through absolute hell. Merrell Shoes are by far the toughest I have ever owned. I am a Merrell, and first bought a pair of mid hikers about 8 years ago mainly so I could wear my last name. I have only wore Merrell ever since. it was a warm day(60 deg F. or so) in Feb two years ago the I got my first Ventilators. when I stepped out of the local shop I immediately felt a nice cool breeze through out my feet. Nice! I was a bit worried about the strength of the vents. Well after a year and a half of mt.boarding, kite ground boarding and doing 20-30 foot beach jumps with my kite on sand mud hard pack and submerged in water. they are still my back up shoes. I now have another pair and plan to replace them with the mid height before leaving with my son (5) and brother on a 5 month trek to Costa Rica and back. There are many videos on my website proving the "ABSOLUTE HELL" that I put my Merrell footwear through on a day to day basis. PROPS TO MERRELL!!! I have Merrell's for all seasons.

My feet are size 7 1/2. After reading several of the reviews here, I was convinced that I should get an exact size (7 1/2) of the Merrell Moab Ventilator (beige color). I wore the shoes for almost 2 weeks to try to 'break it in' before I went for a week long hiking trip in Newfoundland. I soon realized that I should have got a 1/2 size bigger (i.e. size 8 for me) even though I was not wearing particularly thick cotton socks for this trip. During the hiking trip my toes were constantly jammed against the front inner end of the shoes, and soon I developed bruises on the tips of my toes following my daily hikes. Sometimes, I even had to walk with all my toes bent, and walked slowly on my heels to overcome the discomfort . All in all, I should have bought a half size bigger for my feet and not listened to the advice on this site.

I wanted a pair of good hiking shoes for more casual field work and to wear around the office. These do the job and look good. I usually wear my Moab Mid Waterproof when working in tougher and wetter conditions. The only downside I see to these is that the laces come undone very easily unless you double knot them, but that is minor and doesn't take away from the shoes.

Merrell's Reply:

You can try hand-washing the laces with a mild detergent and allowing them to air dry, this should do the trick. If not, please feel free to contact the team at 800.288.3124 for further assistance. Thank you.

These are my first Merrells, the one in Black/midnight, looks great and feels comfy. I had them in a size which I usually buy other brands, but they are were little snug, so I wrote my concerns to Merrell and they replaced with the next size, they also expedited the shipping process, so I could get them before my vacation. I am now wearing them during my vacation and felt the long walks in the airport a breeze. Had couple of phone calls with different customer service during the exchange process, and wanted to highlight the fact that Merrell's customer service is "World Class". I am amazed the way they handled the customer concerns and how they address the issues. Kudos to you guys.
