What People are Saying About the Men's Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator
Hikers who tried out this shoe loved that they required no break-in period. Because of their stiffer, rigid construction, hiking shoes or boots usually need to be broken in so they flex better with your feet. But with the Ventilators, you can take them right out of the box and go straight to vanquishing mountains.
Men also noted that these shoes offered incredible arch support that gave them all-day comfort whether they were walking on city streets or hiking backcountry trails. If you struggle with finding hiking or trail running shoes that provide adequate support to your arches, try these on for size.
Ample toe splay is crucial when you’re dealing with uneven surfaces on the trail – and the Moab 2 Ventilator doesn’t skimp. Reviewers loved the wide toe box that allowed for natural movement of their toes, leading to better balance as you tackle tricky conditions.
Men's Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator Updates
Aside from aesthetic changes (such as the suede leather detailing) and new mesh panels for enhanced ventilation, the Moab 2 also boasts an upgraded outsole. Merrell replaced the Vibram Multi-Sport outsole with the TC5+ to better grip hikers and runners to the ground. The updated outsole also serves up incredible traction in both wet and dry conditions. Bottom line: this model comes with better stabilizing technology and enhanced ground control.
Size and Fit of the Men's Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator
General Size and Fit
The Merrell Moab 2 Ventilator can fit a variety of foot widths, including men’s regular width and men’s extra wide. To give your toes enough room for adequate splay, we recommend going up by one half size from your true foot size.
Rugged good looks and function to boot, this innovative hiking shoe doesn’t shy away from style. A mesh lining easily drains moisture and encourages airflow for a healthy foot environment. At the forefoot, you’ll find a rubberized cap to protect against stubbed toes from rocks and various off-road hazards. The tongue helps keep dirt and stray pebbles from invading your shoes, while the pull tab on the collar makes the Moab 2 Ventilator easy to slip on and off. Webbing and metal eyelets mean extra foot security and a better, customized fit to your unique anatomy.
This ankle-length trail shoe uses an EVA midsole to deliver a lightweight but comfortable underfoot feel as you charge up those trails. A nylon shank gives the shoe more stiffness so you can revel in unparalleled stability on both flat and uneven surfaces. On the heel section, you’ll enjoy an air cushion which absorbs shock impact as you navigate through forests, deserts, and parks. You’ll find strategic support in the arch and heel thanks to the M Select FIT.ECO+ footbed, which will make you confidently surefooted... even if you’re not so sure about those iffy GPS directions.
A Vibram TC5+ outsole provides outstanding traction and 5 mm lugs keep you glued to any surface. The outsole material extends up toward the heel and toe for added durability and protection against wear and tear. Take on that trail in absolute beast mode wearing a pair of men’s Moab 2 Ventilators.
