Merrell MOAB Ventilator: Great shoes and boot. Very comfortable and when they say ventilator they means Ventilation with a capital V. Just standing still you can feel a lightest breeze play into the Duramesh upper.

And how it is that the air can play in and out while sand and reasonable water is kept out I’ll leave to Merrel to explain.

They also look and feel great. I used to sniff at people wearing ‘technical’ footwear (but that was stealth in hostile environments was my primary concern).

Now that I’ve eased up on that I tried the Merrels and it was a great shoe for the last three years of hard wear. I think I understand the outside leather web structure and how it functions to wrap the entire foot snugly for less play therefore more efficient movement without undue pressure points.

They also look great – can be worn around town, on nights out and to work with all the comfort and style they bring.

A great shoe/boot to travel with when travelling light and (in my case travelling light equals one pair of shoes/boots for all uses and flipflops for beach, evening and lightweight out and about).

Even out at night while travelling light I have never – probably no once – been told I can’t enter into a venue for inappropriate footwear. So they won’t interfere with your drinking nor stand between you and a rather pleasant lap dance!

OWNER REVIEW (More reviews on Merrel footwear)    “Aside from being a durable, TRIM, light hiker, these are the by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. Gore Tex is a little less comfortable (go with the Chameleons, but I haven’t broken those in yet) but I cannot complement these boots enough. I bought these to for late summer/fall hiking in the Tehachapis but they have since replaced my everyday kicks. Thank u Merrell :)”
