Great Sneaker

I bought the Moab Speed 2 Womens Wide in Khaki (no longer available) about a month ago. These were very comfortable and wider than my other Merrill sneakers. I really liked them so I just bought another pair in gray. These won’t show the dirt as much as the khaki.

Float as you walk

Sturdy, waterproof, hiking sneaker. Feels like you are floating as you walk.

Mighty Fashionable for a Monster of a Shoe

Worth the purchase! These things are mean! Man, cool, light, comfy…ready for anything you throw at them. I love it. I’ve worn them trekking through the desert. I’ve worn them hiking in the mountains. I feel like they fit a little bigger than true to size but I double sock anyway when I roam so it makes no difference to me. Just keep that in mind. Go get you a pair of these. You won’t regret it.

Beautiful, but odd sizing & best for cool weather

I was absolutely *in love* with how cool these shoes looked! I loved them on the website, but they look even better in person. This was a bit of a selling point for me, because I was looking for a pair of shoes to bring to Europe this summer that would work for both hiking in the Alps and casual use in the city. I cannot emphasize just how cool these look if you want a good chunky running shoe that passes as an intentional style choice, while still being very functional. Unfortunately, the gore-tex is simply not breathable enough for hot weather. My feet were starting to sweat just testing them out around my apartment for 20 minutes, so I'm struggling to believe they could stay comfortable in hot humid summer weather while hiking or walking around a city. This was my first experience purchasing a gore-tex product, so maybe that sounds obvious to those who know better, but when I read "breathable" I was definitely expecting more. I ended up returning them primarily for this reason, so I never got to bring them outside and test the waterproofing abilities. I think they would be an excellent choice for cooler weather, and would have probably kept them if I was planning my trip for the fall. I do have some minor additional issues with the fit of the shoe. First off, the sizing is very strange. For reference, I am typically between an 8.5-9.5 in shoes, depending on the style/maker, and my foot is pretty average width, maybe slightly leaning in the narrow direction with high arches. I initially bought a size 9, and my foot got in, but was pressing firmly against both the front and back of the shoe. I tried a 9.5 and that fit more like the size I would get for a casual city shoe, but for hiking you definitely want more room in the toe. I ordered the 10, and it felt like the size went up proportionally more than it did when changing from the 9-9.5. The 10 was getting a little too wide, and had a lot of room in the toe, but my foot just didn't feel as secure/stable. In comparison, I also tried the non-waterproof speed 2 and agility peak 5, and found that I easily has as much room in the toe at a 9.5 in both of these as the gore-tex 10 had. I also found that the arch support in the speed 2 was not quite what I personally needed. It felt a little too low and too close to the front of my foot, although it wasn't too terrible and may fit someone else's foot great (as mentioned, my arches are high). They also do feel slightly heavy, which tends to trigger some problematic lower back pain from an old injury. If these don't work for you, I ended up ordering/keeping agility peak 5s and found that they are lighter, incredibly breathable, hug my foot better, and have the most incredible arch support (although in terms of look, they are sadly much plainer).

Comfort, color, durability, & weight...

I purchased the grey pair and have had these for about a month now. When they arrived, I was really surprised at how lightweight they were. So far, I love these a lot - the color, comfort, durability, and weight. I haven't had the opportunity to test them in water/rain, but I've no doubt they'll do well. No breaking in time was needed. I was able to slip into them and go. I'm an adult leader with a Scouts BSA troop of girls so we camp monthly. I can't wait to get more use out of these!

Best walking shoes ever

Most comfortable shoes I've worn in years. They are the 3rd pair of Merrells that ive purchased in the last year for my walking program. Each pair i upgrade to a better shoe until finding these Miab Speed 2! I talked my friend into a pair! I wear mine as much as possible, even when not walking. Totally recommend them!

Had to return

I normally wear size 8-9. I ordered 81/2 in these. They were very tight. I would have needed at least a size bigger. And they were very stiff. For the price I expected more. I had to return them

Old style better

Sole is too big. Why make a shoe so clumsy for hiking?

Never disappointed in Merrell

What a great, versatile shoe! Love the street-ready style and how lightweight these are. They proved to be ultra comfy after walking all day in them and even withstood a few inches of slush and snow.
