Bellows tongue keeps debris out
Synthetic leather toe cap and heel counter
GORE-TEXExtended Comfort Footwear lining keeps feet dry and comfortable
Merrel has always been a solid shoe once the pavement turns to trail and the trail gets rough. The low-top goretex hikers offer just the right level of protection and comfort for those moderate day hikes. the traction is excellent and can deal with muddy conditions quite well. For the amount of protection they offer, I'd also call it mid-weight so it doesn't feel like you're doing leg lifts with each step. One draw back is even with my mid-wide feet, the lacing pattern was very narrow and needed to readjust the shoe every so often. a very minor issue with a very solid trail shoe
One of the best shoe companies out there! These water proof shoes will keep your feet dry (used to wear them in the summer, was amazed because I would be dry when the group was soaked in the morning). Also, Merrel offers a lifetime shoe warranty, who can beat that
The Moab has been a customer favorite for a long time. It is a very durable shoe thanks to the vibram outsole. The Vibram Multi-sport outsole uses TC5+ rubber that gives solid traction in extreme temperatures(really hot or really cold) on wet surfaces.
The Gore-tex XCR lining gives the most breathibility for a waterproofing.
This shoe(along with all of Merrell's shoes) has the Merrell Air cushion midsole right underneath the heel to give shock absorbtion and to provide a supportive heel cup.
This shoe should not be used for mid or heavy hiking becuase it does not have a nylon shank. It bends and twists like a sneaker
