Description

Bike the Slickrock Trail or hike through Horseshoe Canyon in the Merrell Moab Ventilator.

Whether you hit up some red rock on your mountain bike or hike through a sun-drenched canyon, the Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Hiking Shoe keeps your feet cool, comfortable, and hungry for more. Merrell constructed these shoes with leather strapping supports to protect the breathable mesh uppers that supply your feet with fresh air on those oven-hot desert hikes. An Air Cushion midsole absorbs shock on jarring downhill jaunts, and a compression-molded EVA footbed provides the support you need on varied terrain. Merrell recommends wearing the Ventilator shoe with a light to midweight sock.

Great Quality

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes have that great Merrell quality, no question about it. The size 7.5 I ordered fit true to size, but the toe box is a bit narrow. Overall, not as comfy as Keen, in my opinion. Great price and service from Backcountry.com.

DO THEY COME TRUE TO SIZE

Responded on

I've always had to buy 1/2 size up. I wear 11.0 in everything else from sandals to boots. For Ventilators, it's 11.5.

Cool Shoes.

This shoes looks comfortable to use on hiking, running and climbing. but Indeed it's not waterproof.

Nice

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

These are great shoes to go hiking and explore new places, I used a couple of time on hikes around San Carlos (Costa Rica) and they felt great using them all day long, even under the rain (although not waterproof)

Keep into account they do run small.

Decent hiking shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I've been a big fan of the Merrell Moab Ventilator boot and decided to give the shoe a try. I don't know if Merrell has changed the fit of their shoes, but for me the've gone from "awesome" to merely "adequate." Don't get me wrong, it's still a good shoe. Not waterproof by any stretch, but it's not designed to be (hence the clever name "Ventilator.") They do keep the dogs cool, though. One thing I would recommend is ditching the stock insole and replacing with something else. Even a cheap drugstore Dr. Scholls insole is better than the one the shoe came with.

So overall, not bad. I'll keep them for sure. I was just hoping for something as comfortable as my venerable, beat-up Moab Ventilator boots. Perhaps with time they will be.

Best Shoes in a Long Time!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

These shoes are the best - they fit true to size and are comfortable enough to wear everywhere. I literally wear them almost every day. A fantastic buy and one that has and will be sure to pay dividends on and on again!

A little bit of everything!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I'm on my second pair of these in 4 years, considering I wear them on average 5-6 days a week I'd say that's pretty good. I have used them from an everyday casual shoe, to hiking and camping. There is no real bad place to take these. No gore-tex means your feet will get wet depending on what you're walking in, but using them as a work shoe, walking through snow cleaning off the car I haven't had problems. They breath fairly well and are comfortable. Merrell has always had shoes that fit my foot well so this has been my go to going on 5 years. My old pair was retired for everyday use and became my dirtbag shoe, (muddy mt biking trails, spring hiking etc..).

Comfortable

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I wear these shoes a lot. They are very comfortable and fit very me very well. Since buying them I have noticed them on many other people. I had no idea they were as popular as they are.

Do you offer the wide version of the Moab?

Responded on

Hey David,

Unfortunately we do not carry the wide version.

Comfortable, sturdy, breathable

A great all around shoe for every day use or hitting a trail. I like how they feel, fit, and look.

good cushion, support and traction

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Just bought these and took them out for a multiday trip in the Uintas. While not a heavy backpacking trip I did break them in during the three days.
The initail feeling was that the heel cup was too tight and I did get some hot spots but no blisters, as I wore wool socks and I think that helped. After a couple of days they have broken in and are a warmer shoe than I had wanted, but not a winter shoe by any means. I am keeping them so they aren't horribly hot.
Good shoe for day hikes and easy backpacking trails.

Good comfort, good traction

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I really like these shoes. I've used them for hiking in the Phoenix valley and they're pretty comfortable. The ventilation helps a bit when a breeze comes through, and that is an absolute must-have for desert hiking. I was also able to hike decent inclines (like the summit of Camelback, Devil's Bridge, etc) with relative ease due to the good traction. I'd say the size fits pretty true, but if in doubt do maybe half a size up.

Aptly Named

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: True to size

I gave these as a gift and the recipient has had nothing but the best of things to say about them. First and foremost, they are super comfortable (I can personally attest to the fact that he has barely taken them off since he got them). They are also quite durable - and aptly named. One of the first treks we took with them was to Moab and they held up quite well for brand new, non broken-in shoes!! They are very breathable which is a hugely important consideration in desert climates.

In fact, he loved them so much that I decided to buy the women's version for myself!

Love this Shoe!!

This is the most comfortable shoe ever. Has lasted me over 2 years and they are still going strong. Will buy another pair when these wear out.

The last has changed

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small

I used to have a pair of these about seven years ago that I really liked. I recently bought a pair in the same size and stupidly went on an overnight, reasonably hard walk in them. I have a wide forefoot and the new fit is narrow there, so I ended up with aching side-crushed bones there. Also for some reason, the insoles gave me huge blisters on the inside of my heel. Anyway, dumb of me to go for a walk in unbroken shoes, but it is annoying to not get consistent fits from companies. At least they could change the name or come up with some sort of fit description system. I have Merrel True Glove minimalist running shoes in the same size that fit me... like gloves and the fit of the Moabs is completely different. I had to chop firewood when I returned from my trip with super sore feet and I was grumpy with the shoes, so I cut them up with an axe. They were surprisingly resistant to that, so I am giving them two stars in respect of their sturdiness instead of one.

Strong & Light

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Very comfortable with a nice sole, If you want a decent boot for day hikes and 3-5 days in the back country with no rain, no mud these will be perfect. Take some caution with the sizing as they run 1 size small.

Burly hiker that feels more like a shoe

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

The soles on this shoe are burly vibram numbers, but because of the way they curve they don't feel bulky when you run in them. The lack of flex in the sole works out because of the shape. Ventilate well too. Would recommend for anyone who needs a tough hiker for backpacking but usually opt for trail runners because they hate the way hiking boots feel.
