These Moab Rover shoes from Merrell feature oily leather upper with die cut rubber heel for durability. Mesh lining treated with M Select fresh naturally prevents odour before it starts for fresh smelling feet.

This is my third pair of merrell shoes and like all the others I have to order a size larger than usual.
I wear size 9 in every other shoe/walking boots but with Merrell I have to wear 10 or they're too tight.
I like Merrell because they suit my wide feet. North face boots for example are too slim, even with a 10.
All my merrell shoes/boots seem to have good grip on any surface, including wet stone. These are the same. My hi-tec with vibram sole was occasionally unpredictable and less sticky grip.
With this particular model, they're nice and light, only marginally heavier than my Merrell Moab Mid GTX XCR.
Lighter than my Hi-Tec Vlite Altitude Ultra Luxe leather boots.
Didn't need to wear them in, nice and flexible out the box.
I can happily wear these all day, just like a normal pair of shoes and my feet don't get tired.Even with just normal thin socks rather than walking socks.
The soles are great on merrells and cushion you really well. Sometimes feels like your feet bounce but in a good way and I guess thats why they don't make them feel tired.
However, they do feel a little warm and i'm yet to go for a bit trek with them yet. When I take the boots off they do feel slightly sweaty inside but my feet don't feel too bad or pong!
My Hi-Tec vlite boots, which are also leather ,weigh a bit more but my feet don't get warm in them. The soles on the hi-tec are nowhere near as comfy on my feet though.
I'm yet to really put these boots through their paces. I'll update this review once I have been out in fully wet conditions.
I think they'll be great as a winter boot, and i'll use the Merrell moab mid GTX XCR as a summer boot as they keep my feet really cool.
I have wide feet and struggle to find footwear that doesn't cause me a problem by crushing my little toes and causing an Athlete's Foot type problem. It took me years to realise that just applying a little petroleum jelly or Vick's to the high contact areas on my feet prevents a lot of problems so I use the same approach with new shoes. There was noticeable contact with this shoe when my foot bent whilst walking but within a few days they softened and now they don't rub. Walking in the rain probably helped. My feet stayed dry. Not tested in torrential downpours or in truly soggy terrain but did resist water incursion through laces and tongue.
There are a lot of quality materials in this shoe. The NuBuck leather uppers look and feel good and I expect several years' wear from them. The soles feel thicker than on previous Merrells and I expect that to be an advantage over rocky ground.
They appear to retain heat. I bought these in May 2016 and I am already beginning to think they might be too warm for everyday use during an English summer but in winter they will excel and I am very pleased with them. I may buy another pair of Merrells but with mesh uppers if these prove to be too warm.

I am now looking for another pair of these. They are disintegrating after a lot of heavy use over almost three years. I had my doubts about summer use but they are fine. A little bit off beeswax applied with a rag keeps them looking good and the water out.
Grip is good and my feet stay warm in them. i will put them to a real test next week when i walk a mountain
After a week they loosened up and became a lot more comfortable.
i bought a size 7, i'm usually 6.5 perfect fit.
Update: Walked up Pen-Y-Fan in South Wales with these, no issues at all, 5 hour walk in total could have gone on for longer quite happily. The weather was horrendous, Heavy Rain, Strong wind, but my feet remained warm, dry and comfortable. In total the walk this was around 9 miles with 900m elevation.
Luckily I got full refund from amazon no questions asked. Excellent customer service from them
The upshot is that I really like them. They are my go-to shoes for hours spent on my feet, whether on grass or street.
I'm normally a 7.5, so I bought an 8.5 as reviews had suggested buying big. For a little while after I first bought them I was seriously worried I should have gone right up to 9, but with a little adventure and breaking them in 8.5 suits me fine.
The only thing than detracts from a five star rating is in how waterproof they are. They really don't breathe at all - wet socks and wet feet. I would not rate these as 12-hour shoes. Probably six hour. If you're planning to use them for hiking or work, it's almost worth taking driving shoes with you so you have something to change into to cut off a couple of hours of using these.
Build quality, comfort and grip seem fine. Would I buy again? No. I'd buy the same style and shape but in a breathable material. I'll get my use out of these, and as I'm not planning on using these day in and day out, I can live with that.
I shall stick with my tried and tested Keen Targhee which do let some water in eventually but usually after around 7 months of really heavy use of dog walking over countless miles and also for work where I can be on my feet for 6-7 hours a day in the rain
