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.

Been using it for a few months on and off the trail. After 3 hour of uphill hiking in Muir Woods it kept up with me. Wish I had this type of boots like the mini-mil when I was active duty in the Marine Corps. Great Job Merrell!

Great Shoe! In a pinch, I literally had to pull a new pair out of the box for a day-hike up Half Dome in Yosemite. No break-in, nearly 18 miles later, 4,800 ft up and back down, no slips, no trips, and not even as much as a hot spot! The best hiking shoe I've ever owned. Great job Merrell!

  • Durable Comfortable Shoe

I'm on my feet for work constantly between 60 and 80 hours a week and these boots are excellent. Lightweight and durable, I'm replacing them after roughly a year of hard use because I want a waterproof boot for winter. I can't say enough about how much better they are than the boots that they replaced. I usually buy Merrell hiking boots for casual use but needed to have a pair of black boots for work immediately when I started so I got a pair of 5-11 boots (as I'm an officer and they are made for officers). Those lasted roughly 5 months before falling apart completely and my Merrells are still going strong after 10 months. These Merrells are so much lighter and more comfortable as well. I'm buying the waterproof version of this boot for the winter and I'll keep using the ventilators for the summer. I can't say enough about how excellent these boots are and I'm so glad I was able to find Merrells in black for work. Shipping was great as well, the boots got to my house quicker than I thought that they would.
