Breathable and waterproof boots for all-weather hiking.
Just because it's summer doesn't mean the trails will be dry, but Merrell's Moab Mid Men's Waterproof Hiking Boot doesn't care if your way is sloppy or sandy. It's built with a leather and mesh upper that's lightweight and cool, but Merrell also included an M Select Dry membrane that keeps your feet dry when the going turns soggy. The Moab is equally at home on rugged terrain, thanks to an M Select Fit.Eco contoured EVA footbed, Air Cushion heel, and EVA footframe that work together to support and cushion your tired pups. Debris is a feature of trail life whether it's wet or dry, but the Moab's bellowed tongue will keep pebbles and sticks out of your socks, while the tough toe cap and heel counter keep your feet stable and protected when you're hopping through alpine boulder fields or kicking steps into patches of frozen spring snow high in the alpine.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Been hearing a lot of negatives on MerrelL lately. These boots have been taking a huge beating from me this summer and fall. I have put hundreds of miles of bushwacking and hunting on them and they are still great.
Excellent boots; excellent value

I've had these boots for several weeks now. I broke them in by wearing them to work. They've been on the trail now for about 50 miles, and I have nothing but great reports on them. They carried me through the entire Buffalo River Trail this past week. What I love the most is how light they are, and how grippy the soles are. I did slide a pair of Superfeet insoles into them, as the provided insoles were very thin. What I have not done yet is get them sloppy wet.
Overall, I couldn't be happier.
