They are a bit heavier than my previous pair of hiking shoes, but they are a good quality shoe. I thought they were going to be laceless (I obviously wasn't paying enough attention). I would recommend them.
I just purchased these Merrell Moab hikers. They are very comfortable and WARM. I bought these shoes because I needed a pair of shoes for daily wear in the winter. The shoe itself is made of very cushiony materials. The tread on these shoes is very thick, and grippy. I think that Merrell has changed their sizing because I tried these on in the store and I needed a 1/2 size larger than I usually do. I am usually a size 7.5 and I purchased these in a size 8 and they fit great!
My girlfriend bought these for her trip to Alaska. She was just going to be doing some light hiking so wanted to purchase a lighter option such as a hiking shoe vs. boot. These shoes are truly waterproof and have been tested through mud/ water, etc. She loves these shoes and says they are very comfortable - even walking around town in! If you are going to be doing some serious backwoods hiking and will be crossing streams, I would recommend upgrading to a pair of water proof boots, but these shoes are great for day and casual hiking.
"Solid hiking shoe that doubles for everyday wear"
I wore these right out of the box, that's how comfortable they are. I am a size 7.5-8, and went with the 8 for a little extra room, as I do with running shoes. I'm glad I did. These are snug, but not too snug, and really support your arch. I tend to strike on the outside of my foot when I run/walk, so support is really necessary for me when I do anything outdoors. So far these are great for Alaska, where it's always wet.They were a bit chunkier than I thought they'd be, but overall a great supportive shoe that lets me get around on trails and in the city. First time buying Merrell and I know I'll buy again.
I love these shoes. I wanted something for hiking that had more support than a tennis shoe but wasn't overly bulky. This shoe is perfect! I loved the colors and it was so comfortable the second I put it on. I could immediately tell they would offer good support. Would recommend these shoes to everyone!
These shoes are amazing! I hike almost every weekend and from day one these shoes have been worth their weight in gold. No breaking in necessary. I intend to buy these shoes again when the pair I have wears out!
