In our last blog, we talked about the technologies in the Merrell Moab series that make them a great hiking shoe. We have a few different styles of Moab’s, so we’ll break down the differences to make your decision easier!
This is our most popular Moab style. The Mid Cut height offers ankle support and protection from debris. Waterproof Leather uppers and Merrell M Select™ DRY Waterproof, mositure-wicking technology keep you dry and comfy.
The Waterproof Moab has the advantages mentioned above, but instead of the added ankle support, the low cut makes this style great for travel or quick day trips. It is lightweight and fits great in your suitcase!
It’s the start of the 2016 hiking season, and we’re celebrating with our favorite hiking shoe–the Merrell Moab. So what’s in a good hiking shoe? We’ll tell you all about it and how the Moab measures up below.
What to Look for in a pair of hiking shoes:
Breathability: You want a pair of shoes that you can spend a lot time in without overheating or creating a swampy, sweaty and uncomfortable environment for your feet–especially in the summer.
Water Protection: Depending on where you’re hiking, you can encounter wetlands, mud, or various bodies of water. Water-resistant or waterproof hiking shoes are great for tackling wet terrain and won’t hold you back if it rains.
Long-lasting comfort – Make sure that your hiking shoes are comfortable not just when you put them on, but also at the end of your hike.
Rugged outsole – you want an outsole that is going to hold grip in uneven terrain. Skip the road running shoes and look for something with a lugged outsole.
1. Great breathability thanks to uppers with just enough mesh to get air to your feet.
2. Depending on the style, the Merrell Moab series can have a combination of water-resistant or waterproof technologies, including: waterproof leather or synthetic material on the uppers, a GORE-TEX® waterproof membrane, or Merrell M Select™ DRY technology.
3. An air cushion in the heel, CMEVA cushion footframe, and odor control technologies offer long-lasting comfort on your hike.
4. A rugged, durable Vibram outsole has 5mm lugs and is ready to tackle tough terrain.
