As a result I now only wear these in the winter when I’m heading to the store or need to step outside for a few minutes.
Here’s why I researched a ton and bought these shoes: I’m taking a trip for 2 weeks that will require a ton of walking around cities, and some light hiking. The trip is to a foreign country, so I’d rather take a single pair of shoes. Also, that country is Japan, where they take their shoes off a lot. So, what I needed was a pair of shoes that was comfortable enough for a lot of city walking, but also could be used for hiking, and that could easily be slipped on/off.
Due to their popularity, I naturally landed with Merrell’s Jungle Mocs. Problem was, they felt like oversized clown shoes. And I tried the half size down but my toe hit the front of the shoe.
So I tried these instead. SO MUCH BETTER. They feel nice and snug without being too small. They feel like a pair of sneakers and are really nice to walk in. The insoles are removable too, so I have the option of going with a pair of Super Feet insoles (which I usually need), but I may just stick with how they are out of the box because they’re that comfortable.
The only think that these don’t have that Jungle Mocs do have is water resistance. But honestly, the fabric on these seems like it has some resistance. And in the end I’d rather have breathability in shoes like this anyway.
UPDATE: I just wore these for half an hour in the rain to clear the wet slush off of my driveway after a snow/ice/wintry mix storm. Not only did I not slip, but my feet stayed warm and dry. To be fair though I was wearing longer pants that covered my ankles.
They don’t claim to be “waterproof,” but they’re a hell of a lot better than a pair of sneakers at keeping moisture out. I’d say they’re great all weather travel & walking commuter shoes. So glad I bought them for my 2 week trip to Japan.
And they’re getting even more comfortable, especially in the heel area, after a little break in period. When they were new I felt that the forward heel ridge was a little too far back, but now it feels very natural.
First, as most people will tell you, the weak point of the Jungle Moc is the outer sole. They tend to wear out quickly. The Moab Adventure Moc has a Vibram outsole, and while I've only had these shoes for a few months, my experience with decades of Vibram soled-shoes is that they are long wearing and durable.
Second, the Vibram sole is both comfortable and grippy. Great upgrade.
Third, the shoe itself is slightly snugger than the standard Jungle Moc. I like the more secure fit, and I think it feels great.
Finally, I think the shoe has good styling and is overall quite comfortable. It's a great shoe for walking, with enough grippiness to be used in some casual outdoor adventures.
That being said, I must admit, I'm somewhat disappointed with the quality of the new Adventure. Granted, it has a nice leather upper finish but the structural support is lacking for shoes that are touted to be "slip ons." The very first time I attempted to slide my feet into these shoes, the back of the shoes collapsed. I was rather surprised and annoyed. I removed the shoes and firmed up the back of the shoes again before attempting to put my feet in again. This time, I used my thumb as a "shoe horn" to slide my feet in.
No, I did not have these types of issues with the Jungle Mocs. In fact, the back of the shoes seemed to be more reinforced than the Adventure model. I will continue to wear them but will be more careful with the back of the shoes.
PROS: Nice leather uppers, incredibly comfortable
CONS: Structural support is lacking
Bad call, as I soon realized. The pair I received has a sole that is extremely slippery on wet and inclined surfaces (e.g. moderate downhill road or hiking trail during/after rain). It almost feels like an ice skate that hydroplanes once it is placed on a wet, hard surface. I slipped and lost balance several times on my trip, and actually fell down to the ground twice. Others walking with me on the same surface had no issues whatsoever. I don't have any slipping issues on wet/inclined surfaces with any other pairs of shoes I own - including hiking shoes, running shoes, formal shoes, loafers, flip flops etc.
So I am not sure if it is a defect specifically with the pair I received, or that's how this model is. But this is by far the worst pair of shoes I've ever owned.
