These are the greatest hiking boots ever! I am an avid mountain hiker in a desert climate. Summers here are 115 degrees and the ventilation properties of these boots is a lifesaver! The vibram soles with the deep lugs have the sticking power of Spiderman for climbing boulders and slick rock. This is my second pair. After putting hundreds of tough miles on my first pair, I designated them as 'water hiking boots'. I wore them on a 3 day 30 mile backpack where they were immersed in water or just soaking wet the entire trip and they are still going strong. My son and my boyfriend wear these, too, and love them! I work for the Forest Service at the public hiking trailheads and I can tell you that more hikers here wear this particular shoe than any other by far. That says it all. These rock!

I'm not that happy with these as work shoes. I'm not finding the durability that I read in the other reviews. I've had the top tabs on both boots replaced after 3 months and they are more worn after six months than any other boot I've had. I thought I was upgrading from the Columbias that have been my usual but the Merrells are not near as tough and way more expensive. I did buy a thirteen to fit my usual size 12d. They're not a terrible shoe...just not very tough.

I purchased these boots for my son. They are extremely comfortable and true to size. Several other commentators claimed they ran small. I took this into consideration when I bought them and had to return for his true size. The return was easier than I expected. They sent out the new pair even before receiving the return. How great is that? I love Zappos and their customer service is superior!

These are incredible shoes. I wore them for 12 straight days on vacation without breaking them in, and they served perfectly. They feel even better now than they did when they first showed up.

These are excellent boots for the price. They provide excellent ankle support, and arch support. I took other's advice and ordered one size larger (11½ instead of my usual 10½) and the fit was excellent. I intend to try other Merrell products.

These are fantastic. I'm on my feet at work most of the day and these have not let me down yet. Comfortable on the whole foot and ankle, and so very cool. My feet tend to get hot, but these keep them well ventilated and cool. Haven't tried them for hiking yet, but if they react on the trail as well as they do after 10 hours on a concrete floor - I'll need a work pair and an outdoor pair. Highly recommend.

Wow I’m so impressed. It was a little tricky for me because I live in South Africa, so I had to get it shipped to a US address and sent over, therefore returning them would have been a huge expense. Luckily they arrived and everything is perfect; super lightweight, more comfortable than my Crocs, true to size, look and feel great. Going on a 100km hike and these give me confidence.

I should have paid attention to the reviews. It really does run smaller than marked. Have to return them. Otherwise, I like 'em.

I have worn Merrells for a few years now. I own four different styles all in 10½ Men's. I first ordered 10½ in this style and they were way too short. Then 11 and they are still too short. Next step 11½. Nobody else seems to have this problem. Thank goodness for Zappos' excellent return policy. But there are at least 10 dudes willing to buy these off me here in Afghanistan.

I bought these for my husband and he loves them! He has a very wide foot and I got him the EE, and they fit perfectly. They are light and they breathe easily where the mesh is. These were a great purchase!

A wonderful pair of boots - I wear size 12 and usually place a pro foot pad in my shoes because of the support it gives me (I'm way overweight); these boots fit like a pair of gloves and felt good after having them on all day. The boots are much better than the price I bought them for. This is the first time I have worn Merrell boots and I will probably look at Merrell again when I'm ready for my next pair of boots.

A great light weight, mid height, trail and field boot. Breathes well and fit is very comfortable. I've worn these to my work as a geologist for a year now and love them. I pull the bed liner out of every shoe I buy and put in an orthopedic liner like Superfeet of Dr Sholes gels, so take the arch support with this in mind.

The boots are amazing. 5-10k movements in 100+ lbs of gear and kit has never been easier. Zappos however, took 3 weeks to deliver. Get the boots, just don't get them from here.

Very little difference between medium and wide. I was concerned that 13 wide would be too wide; but, the fit is fine. Very lightweight.

My son (16) will be going hiking for 8 days on his birthday! He needed these shoes ASAP to be able to break them in. His size 12 were a little big, called Zappos and they had size 11 1/2 out the next day! He has been wearing them and absolutely loves them! Zappos, you are the greatest, you make things happen - and fast. Love you guys.

Great hiking boot for summer adventures, they have kept my feet cool and comfortable for day long hikes on rocky trails and urban adventures. You can wear them day after day all day and still feel good. Just the right ankle protection and even though they are not water proof my feet stayed dry on wet morning trails and mud.

The service was quick, complete and accurate. The staff is the friendliest, by far, of any service I have been associated with. Add free shipping, and you can't go wrong. My hiking boots are great and comfortable. the wide width is great for my feet. It was cheaper than our local stores. I'm a happy camper and hiker.

By far the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. Used for outdoor adventures as well as everyday casual wear. My other pair has lasted nearly 5 years. I am glad I found them on Zappos. I bought these merely based on the size of my older pair. A perfect fit.

This is my second pair that I bought as a back-up to the primary pair. I liked the first pair that much! I'm wearing them in Afghanistan in 115F heat daily. That about sums it up!

As a Boy Scout leader, I take shoe selection very seriously. The Moab is great on the trail in addition to being very durable. But it doesn't stop there. I use them as my everyday shoe for great support in my computer business where I spend most of the day in an un-air-conditioned warehouse. Your feet stay cool and dry. Their light weight reduces fatigue. Lastly, I ride a very large Honda Goldwing motorcycle. The Moab is my shoe of choice for summertime riding. Simply tilt your foot forward to feel a cool breeze in hot weather. What I like best is putting my foot down and feeling confident about the grip on dry, wet or even dirt roads. It is amazing what a difference a good shoe makes.

Great hiking shoes. Hiked 15 miles in Yosemite with these. They are extremely comfortable have great traction and need almost no break-in time. My entire family has these now. Zappos service is excellent as always.

This is the first hiking boot I have ever purchased that was comfortable right out the box. I have hiked in Utah and Arizona on trails from moderate to strenous rated difficulty with absolutely no blisters or even sore spots on the feet. I purchased a second pair for future use and I will leave them in the box until the first pair wear out. Highly recommend these boots for hiking.

The mostly-rave reviews on this boot are justified. They're surprisingly light, and very comfortable. They do seem a little wider than a comparable boot. I was underwhelmed by the insole -- it's the same doofy piece of foam that everyone uses. But, when I replaced that with a Superfoot insole -- ahhh, now these are some serious walking shoes!

I found these shoes at a brick and mortar sports store. But they didn\'t have size 14 for me. I ordered a size 14 hoping they would be right. I didn\'t know to much about widths so I picked standard and hoped for the best. I loved these boots from the moment I put them on. I had only two day before going on a trip with a lot of walking. These boots required zero break in, as stated in the other reviews I read. I walked probably 30 miles in the first ten days I had them over a combination of surfaces. I did not do serious mountaineering but pretty much everything else. I give them 5 stars because there aren\'t 6. If you need solid, instantly comfortable, boots for work or anything but the most serious recreational use, look no further.
