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.

  • The Best Hikers and General Use Shoe I Ever Owned

These are the best hiking and general use shoes I have ever owned. They are very comfortable right out of the box. I rarely write reviews but I am very happy with these shoes. In the past I have worn darker colored athletic shoes for general wear and casual hiking. I have owned the same Merrell Moab pair for 4 plus years and I bought a new backup pair last year. The toes, outsole, and the fabric wear so much better than running or other athletic shoes or light hiking shoes. I am very happy and will be a Merrell customer forever!!

very comfortable after initial break-in period. fits and wears very well. walnut color appears more gray on website. i even called to check with a representative upon ordering and she said that it is more gray than beige in color. when the shoe arrived it was beige and not grey - hence the return for the black color since gray doesn't seem to be available. this is a great product. thank you.
