Rated 5 out of 5 by from Version 2.0 at least as good as 1.0 You can't go wrong with these comfortable, well-made shoes from Merrell, which are suitable for everything from a hike in the woods to a walk around town. I had a pair of the original Moab Ventilators, which lasted me a good 3 years and have now given way to the newest version. They're comfortable right out of the box and fit very well, with a nice-sized toe box to accommodate those of us with wider feet. They're also designed to enhance breathability, so as to minimize foot sweatiness. Overall, I'm very satisfied and would have no hesitation in recommending these shoes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from immediate perfect comfortable fit on arrival Even with REI's solid return policy I am generally a bit reluctant to buy shoes online but in this case the result was excellent because the shoes were correct to size and felt already broken in right out of box. I bought these primarily for casual wear and particularly like the low cut at the top of the back of the shoe relative to my other low cut hiking shoes. Only time will tell about their durability but based upon my past history with Merrell shoes I have confidence that these should wear well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Redesign ruined the shoe The redesign ruined the shoe for me. Very disappointed. The heel cup has been lowered and the second reinforced eyelet has been deleted. As a result you can't tie them in the heel lock manner any longer. So, for my feet at least, this resulted in heel blisters within a couple of miles. I have been wearing the Moab 1 for years, having gone through many pairs, loved them. The new, for me, terrible. Oh, in case I wasn't clear, I don't like them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathable and very comfortable I've only had these for about a week, but so far they're the most comfortable and breathable shoes I've ever owned. They also have a wide option. I always have a hard time finding shoes that work for me as I have short and very wide feet. Also my feet tend to sweat a lot, so having a shoe that is breathable is also a must. I walk a lot during the regular work day, so finding a shoe that is durable is important to me too. I have again only had these for a week, but they seem like they would last a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort Right off the Shelf I purchased thes about a month ago and love themed right out of the box. This shoe has a great deal of cushion and provides great suppport for walking. I us this shoe as my go to for travel (walking through airports) and all purpose walking around the neighborhood and/or trails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep the feet cool and comfortable I have worn Moab Ventilators for years and always loved them. The Moab Ventilator 2 seems to be just a bit stiffer and I think I actually like it better. The main part for me is that they provide great ventilation to keep my feet cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great shoe this is my second pair of the moab 2 low hiking shoe. The shoe is comfortable, supporting and durable. When I buy the same product again it means it works and there is no reason to look for the latest and greatest. I recommend it highly for an all around shoe.

How is the fit of this model compared with the old model (1-2 years ago)? If I get the same size, can I expect the same fit?

Asked by: gigantic shadows
No longer a good fit for me. Bought a pair of the IIs and returned them. I've been wearing the Moab Ventilators for many years. Too much room around the ankle and heel now for this old hiker. Had heel slippage when I tried them on the carpet.

Does this shoe come in a wide version? If so, do I need to size up from my normal size 10.

Asked by: LandCruiser
We do have these boots in wide (2E) widths. Based on feedback and reviews, the boots have been known to run true to length. We recommend ordering your usual US shoe size.
