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.

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!!

  • Fit: True to size

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.

Good light hiker/walker

Good shoe. Would buy again. When I do, I will go half size larger if I can. Seems to run a tad small.

Legit Light Hiker

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

Owned and put countless miles on these shoes while hiking and on missions. Extremely comfortable, durable, and light weight. Fits true to size. Functional footwear.

Fantastic light hiker

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

I have used these as my go-to hiking footwear for years, and love them for day hikes and overnight trips

They are light, have good tread (Vibram), stay tied well, shed moisture pretty well, and don't hold odor too badly; when going on longer multi-day trips, however, I usually opt for something with more ankle support

My only gripe is that the sole started to peel off the toe almost immediately, but it hasn't progressed in the years since then and they continue to perform well

Shoe's heal and toe box fits a wider foot. I think they will break to my size if at all. Comfortable, clean, and what I want from a Hiking Shoe.

Best Shoe

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

I have had 4 pairs now, each one lasting more than a year of constant daily use. They are by far the most comfortable shoes I have ever had and they fit right out of the box. I need a wide shoe with excellent arch support and these are the only ones that meet that criteria! I'm hooked on these.

Love this shoe

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

I have worn this shoe for everything from day hikes to week long backpacking trips and it holds up amazing! If I need to hike or stand for a long period of time this is what I want on my feet!

First pair --- but not my last...

I wholehearted agree with everyone else. No break-in, extremely comfortable
and look pretty good, too. Overall an outstanding hiking shoe !
( They do tend run a wee bit short, however, so I would recommend ordering about a half size longer.)

Great shoe.

I use these for hiking, but primarily as a work shoe because I work for a landscaping company. Comfortable and pretty light. I was surprised most by how durable they are and how they held up for 5 months of hard wear!

Excellent all-rounder trail shoe

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have used Zamberlains and Scarpa before but this is my first pair of Merrell low cut trail shoes. They are very comfortable shoe. No breakin required. They fit well for wider feet and have a very similar size and shape to Asics men's runners. The size runs true, very durable and really could not be happier!

My every day shoe.

Very comfortable. I have them on right now!

Satisfied... Not thrilled.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I used these extensively over the past summer and fall. The description suggests these are great for hiking a sun drenched canyon or hitting some red rock on a mountain bike... and they are. However, unlike other hiking shoes out there, these are not what I'd consider a good "all around" hiking shoe. My last pair of hiking shoes could go anywhere, do anything, and left my feet feeling like a million bucks. The Ventilators excel at ventilation (not surprisingly) but I would only give them a 5 out of 10 for comfort. This shoe is fine on an ascent, but these shoes always seem to leave my feet yearning for more underfoot support and shock absorption on the way down. The advertised air-cushion midsole is just not an adequate shock absorber for this level of shoe, even on gradual declines. I have already decided to retire them from hiking service, and use them for my casual wear shoe instead.

For more support, upgrade the cheap foam insoles with Superfeet or other performance footbed. Then the comfort will be around 11.

Responded on

I agree with James. I put 15 to 25 miles a week on these and have great comfort. I use SuperFeet Orange inserts. They are an improvement over the Sole orthotics I had previously used.
