The Mother Of All Boots: Revived.
When push comes to shove, there's no real need to conduct a complete overhaul on the beloved Women's Moab Boot. So instead, the designers at Merrell equipped with Merrell Moab 2 Mid Vent Hiking Boot with a few new features that simply improve the shoe rather than change it robustly. To start, the Moab's upper has been updated with a waterproof, performance suede that prevents moisture from infiltrating your socks. Additionally, the shoe now touts a Speed Band for torsional support and stability as you navigate varied terrain.
In keeping with the original design, a bevy of mesh inserts offer passive ventilation, while the bellowed tongue keeps debris at bay. A protective toe cap safeguards your foot from trail-side obstacles, and the M Select FIT.ECO footbed is equipped with zonal arch and heel support, as well as a Merrell Air cushion in the heel for added impact absorption. Not to mention, an EVA midsole attenuates shock and prevents foot fatigue, and the Vibram TC5+ outsole maintains subtle, yet substantial traction underfoot.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Best hiking boot I’ve ever loved! Beautifully cushioned around the ankle, very supportive. Laces easily. The mid and heel cups your foot perfectly so that your toes feel free and weight is evenly distributed. Love the grip of the soles. After I got these, I loved them so much I went back and bought Merrell work shoes and low hikers. Fit true to size for me (size:9, medium width, even though I have a slight hammer toe on one foot, not an issue)
great mothers day gift.
