4.0 out of 5 stars Hardy and well crafted.
By Morgan on October 6, 2022
I've been testing these since 2019.
They are near indestructible. No rips, wear spots, or mishaps encountered. Excellent knobby tread that has superb traction. In fact, these shoes have the best traction out of any pair of shoes I've ever owned.
They are fairly thin soles, and I can 'feel the terrain' through them- while still being very stiff and protective. Seeing as they are a hiking shoe, I feel this is important to note.

Arch support is respectable, and i have also noticed there is excellent protection from the foot rocking inward. The shoes have held their shape excellent and never required a break in period.

My boyfriend wears them occasionally and they fit him great too. He can't feel any sort of impression where my feet naturally sit in the shoe. They are just as comfortable to him as they are to me.
I wear these on hikes but also wear them to work occasionally as they breathe excellent. Whereas- my work boots do not. They are not meant for standing on concrete all day, and i find my feet a little extra sensitive by the days end.
I also have very sweaty feet and my shoes tend to develop odor quickly. I was surprised at how resistant these have been to smell and have washed them a handful of times to assist with that.
I only fault these shoes for a modest toe box. I have average width feet, however as a 'hiker shoe' I wish these allowed my toes to fully expand when flexed. Im not crowded in them per say, but I wish a wide width was available. I do overall enjoy them and would recommend! True to size, and I almost never get it right the first try!

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy these for $75 or buy the Waterproof for $125??
By Minny on August 19, 2022
Why do these, the Vent, look exactly like the waterproof ones, but are $50 cheaper?
I did the market research.

Comparing these : Merrell Women's Moab 2 Vent Hiking Shoe (Smoke) to the Merrell Women's Moab 2 Waterproof hiking shoe (Drizzle Mint)

I use these A LOT. I bought the waterproof ones and loved them, wore them out.
In May 2022, I bought these cheaper ones, the Vent, to see how they compared to the more expensive waterproof ones.
Same size, 8.5W.
In August 2022, I saw the waterproof ones for $93, so I bought a new pair.
SPOILER: BECAUSE I PREFER THE WATERPROOF ONES.

1. Out of the box, I wanted to, but I didn't like these, the Vent, as much. The shoe is longer and the toebox was very roomy. They felt too big, but still comfortable, even brand new. Almost returned them, but started wearing them instead. I wear them now, and I really like them. I wear it like a roomy shoe, slip on and off.
2. Somehow, the Vent's sole support is just different. Maybe it's mental, but the more expensive waterproof ones felt more expensive.
3. Over time (3 months, daily use), even though the Vent felt too big at first, they started to mold more and almost seem to shrink to my foot. I noticed that the waterproof ones also do this.
4. Visually, I cannot see the difference between these two shoes, but the Vents were bigger and seemed a little less supportive.

I shellacked my non-waterproof Vents from every angle with waterproofing spray from a can. In tall wet grass, they seep at the seams anyway, but water beads off on the surfaces. Verdict: damp sock.

Personally, the waterproof ones have been waterproof for me, despite what many reviewers have said.
I've stepped in the creek (not fully submerged) with the waterproof ones and had dry sock.

Advice: if you don't have the extra $50, don't sweat it, order the Vents, but personally I would have ordered them a half size down. Overall though, despite the higher price, I do like the waterproof ones better.
