Disappointing - by , Feb 07, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
I love my Moab Ventilators so much that I bought a second pair after the first ones wore out. So, I was eager to try the waterproof version of my favorite shoe. I was extremely disappointed. Not only is the shoe not waterproof, there is a horizontal seam around the heel area that gave me blisters. I covered the seam with moleskin and just wear them as a general knocking-around shoe, not for hiking.

The insoles are stiff so I cannot wear them all day because they hurt my feet.

Comfy but not durable - by , Aug 15, 2018

Sole started falling off my Moab shoe after 6 months of strictly indoor only use. Clean, level floors. Very disappointed. I would not recommend if you need something heavy duty for hiking. Also not super impressed with their warranty. Shoes were comfy though!

Hurt my feet - by , Sep 07, 2018
1/ 5 Stars
I bought these shoes a week ago. Usually right out of the box merrel shoes are great but these weren't they hurt my feet so bad I was limping. The inner soles rubbed against my soles causing blisters after a day, then ththe heel was so stiff it hurt me to stand after 10 mins. I cant wear these and I'm very upset.

Fell apart - by , Mar 29, 2019

I wore these on a handful of hikes before the front of the shoe split apart from the sole today. Luckily it didn’t split further or I would’ve been in big trouble on the last few miles of my hike. Merrells 60 day guarantee is not long enough considering these are supposed to be durable shoes.

Waterproof? Not so much - by , Sep 19, 2017
2/ 5 Stars
I hike 3+ hours a day so I need a waterproof and comfortable shoe. Well I must say this shoe gets an A for comfort. However, it gets an F for being waterproof. Actually it is less waterproof than the Moab waterproof shoe that it replaced. Walking on dew grass is all that you need to have wet toe box and wet socks. After every hike, even on the sunniest day, I automatically put shoes on shoe dryer. So very disappointed.

Waterproof shoe only good in dry conditions - by , Oct 23, 2017
2/ 5 Stars
This shoe fit perfectly. The toebox comfortable accomodates my wide forefoot. However, I found that I am only able to wear the shoes in dry conditions. Once the terrain is moist, the shoes become high heels on black ice. I have fallen twice with the shoes, once descending a moderately steep, rocky trail and once in the middle of the city. Both times were under misty and not rainy conditions. I have absolutely no confidence with the shoes unless the conditions are garanteed to be absolutely dry. The shoes are comfortable and good looking, but do not live up to the expectation of using them in wet conditions.

Comfortable, great fit & traction, but not waterproof. - by , Nov 03, 2017
2/ 5 Stars
I was in the market to replace my old Merrell's that I've had for many years and was excited to see how great these felt when I put them on. The sizing was perfect and they felt light and durable. My first few day hikes with them in dry conditions were a success and I was extremely pleased with their traction and overall feel. Unfortunately, that all came to an end on my recent backpacking trip. The first day it rained and water soaked all the way through the shoes quite quickly keeping me with wet feet all day. I chalked that up to a hard rain, but just one day after getting them dried back out, I had wet socks and feet again just from walking in wet grass at camp and the toe box getting saturated. I'm pretty bummed about this because I loved these shoes so much, but I just can't depend on them to keep my feet dry.

My first pair of Moab were wonderful without any problems. Thought I would try the water proof ones to make hiking more pleasant. Totally disappointed as they have given me blisters big time and not so sure on the waterproofing .

I bought the MOAB 2 last fall. Have only worn them a few times . Went for a walk yesterday and they both completely soaked through. Had to walk through a few puddles but could literally wring my socks out when I got home. Was I supposed to spray them? They are very comfortable!
