Comfy and stylish boot for the outdoor guy trying to look a bit smarter
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 18 March 2019
I don’t wear dress shoes, or even just “smart” shoes. I’ve never liked them, find them uncomfortable and like a suit or even a tie I see little point to them other than to conform to an outdated standard. I’m an office worker, but as an Engineer I get out and about a lot and when I’m not in safety boots I’m wandering across mucky car parks so dress shoes are out of place anyway. What I do wear though are boots like these, or my old favourite Dude Farty loafers.
As a fell walker I’m a big fan of Merrell and Solomon walking boots, and generally live in my Merrell Moab Ventilator boots. These Jungle Mocs have the same fitting and comfy feel as those Moabs, but bridge the gap from outdoor boot to smarter day shoe. They’re rugged underneath, but stylish on the top, and I can pair them with my usual Craghopper Kiwi Classics or my work chino type trousers so I don’t look like I’ve just rolled off of Snowdon. Which I usually just have.
Update: I've had the brown coloured ones now for coming up to a year, and have just brought a pair in black also, such is my regard for how comfy and practical they are.
