    I have worn MOABs for many years. Love them. I have issues with rolling my left ankle and sweaty feet. The original MOAB solved everything.I was concerned to hear the “MOAB II” had replaced the product I loved, so I called Merrell’s Customer Service about it. They told me that the MOAB II was the same product, but with improved materials. So, I ordered a new pair. It turns out that Merrell’s assertion was patently false. There are IMPORTANT differences that cause my ankle to be unsteady.Less ankle area padding, one less shoestring eyelet for final cinching, and lack of the stiffener that stabilizes the upper foot at the ankle. I posted a video. See for yourself.Read more

    I’m a big fan of the Moab Ventilator. I’ve used them for years. I have a wide foot so I buy the Wide width and hike hundreds of miles each year in them.If you’re reading this you probably know that Merrell has discontinued the “Moab” Ventilator and replaced it with the Moab 2. But don’t be fooled, the Moab 2 is a big departure from the Moab.Like I said earlier, I hike hundreds of miles with my shoes. I don’t get blisters. My feet and legs feel good afterwards. In short, I have had no problems with the Moab. After hiking in my new Moab 2s, I could barely walk the next day. At the time I had no idea it was the shoes. The doctor diagnosed it as Achilles’ tendinitis and prescribed a topical anti inflammatory and six weeks of rest and physical therapy.After clearance from my doctor and the physical therapist, I donned my Moab 2s again for a shopping trip. No hills – just walking the isles. By the time I got home my Achilles’ tendon was pounding again. This is when I put 2 & 2 together and realized it was the shoes.I called Merrill and the representative told me that yes, the Moab 2 was designed differently. The heal had been deepened to hold the heal firmer. Apparently no one told them that letting the heal slide deeper into the heal also forces the Achilles back and into the pull tab rim. It all made sense when she told me about the deeper heal. That’s exactly what was causing my injury. So, BE WARNED!, the Moab 2 could be hazardous to your health.As an aside, the toe box, the area where the widest part of your foot fits, was widened. I need a wide shoe for my wide feet but now there is so much room that the wide part of my foot slides left and right and actually bangs into the sides of the shoe hard enough to bruise that part of my foot. The representative told me that I should try a regular width shoe next time. Wouldn’t that mean that the regular width shoe would now be too wide for someone that normally wears a regular width shoe? I was not happy with her logic.I hope this helps and prevents anyone else from an unnecessary injury.Be well and be safe.Read more

    Updated after 100 miles of hiking with shoe…I’m a long-time Merrell Moab wearer and SoCal hike leader. Wish I had better things to say about my new Moab 2s.The good: more prominent arch than the original Moabs, similar fit otherwise, still good lateral support mid-shoe forward, nearly identical tread design, and great price.The bad: they have changed the lacing geometry, eliminated one set of lace holes, and intentionally or unintentionally increased the size of the shoe opening. As a result, I cannot get the shoe to close up around my foot, even trying different lacing patterns. The shoe remains loose, even when tightly laced, and mid-shoe back lateral stability is greatly reduced compared with the original Moabs.The ugly: Two things. First, I am getting a persistent pinch near top of the laces. Started on the right shoe, but now it is on both shoes. Different lacings, multiple tongue adjustments, lots of break-in, and the pinch is still there. Will go away if I relax the lacing, but then the shoes no longer have enough stability for safe hiking. Believe this problem results from the altered lacing geometry and/or inadequate foam padding in the shoe tongue. Second, the terry-cloth liner surrounding the shoe opening began to blister on both shoes after less than 100 miles and, suffice it to say, this is not getting better with added time and use.Overall, as a long-time Merrell customer, I am not happy with either the Moab 2s or Merrell. I ordered a replacement pair of original Moabs, since I am weeks away from heading to the Sierras for the summer and don’t have time to begin exploring a new long-term shoe. But I will when I get back.Debating sending the folks at Merrell a note, but frankly, not feeling good about a company that would let a product like this go to market.In any case, I would strongly recommend against using these shoes for hiking, based on my experience with them.Read more

    I’m a first-time Merrell customer, and wear a 10.5 (sometimes 10.5W) men’s shoe. Seeing several comments online that Merrill’s run true to size, I first tried both a 10.5 and a 10.5W Moab 2 Vent Hiking Shoe. While the 10.5W fit better, in both cases my toes were pressed against the front. So I went up to an 11, and my toes were still touching the front, not as much but still uncomfortable. Then I called Merrill customer service, expressing disbelief that I should need to go up a full size to 11.5. I was told to try an 11W, because the “W” adds space “all the way around the foot, not just in width.” I never knew this! Indeed, my 11Ws fit well with appropriate room for my toes. Bottom line: as a men’s 10.5-borderline-Wide shoe wearer, the Merrell Moab 11W was right for me… so 1/2 size up. I wear athletic socks with them. After I break them in, I’ll update this review and adjust stars if appropriate. (And yes, I know, I would have saved time finding a local store to try them on first before ordering on-line.)Read more

    I have owned two pairs of the previous Moab shoe. This is an OK successor but I prefer the original. This new model has one less eye hook on each side and this makes it more difficult to tighten the shoe for each foot. The missing eyeholes are at the top where good ankle control benefitted from two eyeholes.Read more
