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 am 6'8" 300lbs. I wear these as my every day shoes, they are super comfortable. Unfortunately, I have to buy Lowa boots for hiking because Merrell doesn't make these(or anything) in a 16. If they made a 16, I'd never even look at another pair of shoes. They are super comfy and quite durable. They tend to break down a little fast under my weight and activity level, but I will keep buying them until they quit making them, or I die. Thank you Merrell for making suck a good shoe, but please consider making them in a 16. I will keep buying the 15, but would love to be able to use them for hiking also rather than just walking on flat ground.

So, I owned 7 pairs of these Moabs in the last 7 years. I've put on over 400 miles on the AT in section hikes, thousands more on local trails, use them as my everyday shoe, ... These shoes with a semi custom footbed are like heaven. Yes they aren't the lightest, but the rubber toe, solid construction, and excellent lateral movement makes it a superb show for trailhiking on the east coast of the US, where small rocks and tree roots are underfoot on every step.
