Perhaps I just have a defective pair as they are not fit for purpose as far as I'm concerned.
Unsurpassed levels of comfort and excellent arch, heel and ankle support on long day hikes, I have never ever experienced any soreness or foot swelling with any Merrell shoes. Air cushion absorbs impact, which is great as 99% of my hiking is on tarmac.
Durability is fantastic, the uppers and Vibram soles wear and wear and wear for thousands of miles/kms plus they look far more respectable than training shoes, and are an excellent choice for everyday casual footwear if you care about comfort and your foot health.
These shoes are not waterproof, and will sometimes slip on mud, wet leaves, wet rock, as the sole compound is fairly hard ( for wearability ), these are ultimately a good weather shoe.
The right shoe is okay.
The left one is terrible. While both sole units are the same size, the top of the left is narrower and all askew, giving me sever over-pronation. One dry weather walk and I had to stop at about 100 yards, my left leg, particularly the knee was in a lot of pain. I almost wonder if these are seconds.
I swapped these for my Moab GTX shoes and no problem.
Trouble is I'm off to hike in the Negev very soon and will have to use the GTX shoes instead of this pair, which would have been cooler in the desert.
I tossed the new ones in the nearest dumpster and will never buy shoes online again. I don't care if I save 50 pounds on them.
I have wide feet and usually take a size 9UK in Clarks, Asics & Brooks. Buying shoes online tends to be hit & miss, especially with having wide feet. After reading other reviews of the Merrell Moab 2 Vent, my best guess was a 9.5UK.
For the first 1000 steps around the house I found the left shoe perfect and the right a bit nippy around the toes. After a first 10k walk, mostly on pavements, I've experienced the same, although the tighter right shoe seems to be loosening up. Most importantly, I don't have any blisters and overall I loved my first walk in these. Like others have mentioned, the shoes are very stable and grippy. They are also extremely comfortable.
From my first experience, I suggest going a half size up if wearing trainer socks and going for short walks and a full size up for thicker socks and long walks.
Free returns is essential unless you are confident about your size.
The second design fault is that they are like walking on ice on some surfaces - anything metal, you could be up in the air.
These two design faults are an inconvenience, but the comfort and fit is amazing - they are small fitting, i am 8.5, but a 9 fits perfectly.
They are so comfortable you could walk miles.
they look great too
I cant believe how Merrell - i'm a big fan can get the basics so wrong???
