Buyers sentiment across 0 reviews
The Sentiment Analysis of key attributes from the reviews is summarized as follows:
Fit – The boots fit perfectly and has a large toe space. Some users felt that they need to order half size larger of their actual size for perfect fitting.
Comfort – According to most of the users, the design adds comfort and flexibility for long term use. However, a few users felt that this shoe is more suitable for daily use, rather than long hiking.
Traction – The Vibram Lugs are said to give great grip on both rocky harsh terrains and muddy trails. Due to thin outsole and lack of midsole cushioning, some users felt coarse under their feet and said that the sole seemed to be worn out after a few hikes in rough terrains.
Protection – Users felt comfortable with the not-too-rigid build-up, especially while hiking in rocky terrains.
Support – Users were pleased with the arch and ankle support and said it was effective in long hikes. A few users with high arches and flat arches felt less support while hiking for long hours. One of the users felt that the side ankle support was not adequate while another felt more support on ankle than on toes.
Quality – Due to great quality many users have used the boot both for construction works as well as for long hiking. However, one of the user felt that the quality was not up to mark for hiking due to blisters. A few users also commented about frayed loops and stitches seen after active use.
Waterproof – The product being water resistant was useful to some users as they said it stops dew and mild downpour from entering the insoles.
Breathability – The ventilation of the mesh surface makes the boots very breathable and users found this very useful during hiking in hot weather conditions. Users loved the sweat-wicking property of the boot. Some users found the Gore-tex build-up not much breathable while one commented that the fabric seemed to wear off on the side of the ventilation windows.
Weight – With only 1lb 15 oz weight, the users found this shoe very lightweight, even for daily use.
Insulation – Most of the users, however, agreed that the shoe works great in freezing conditions and many users loved the Moab Ventilator perfect for hiking in extreme summer times, too. However, some of the users felt that the shoe not suitable for winter and some felt that the insulation made their feet warm and uncomfortable.
Durability – Most users seem to be quite impressed with the durability of the shoes while hiking in long backpacking trips. Users also have used it for construction related jobs and found it to be hardy enough. One user felt worn out back and side ankle cushioning while the other found exposed hard plastic after only few months of using it.
Looks – Users have loved the style, design and colour of the boots and have used it for daily use purposes apart from hiking.
Price – The users loved the comfort provided by the shoe at this price. Many users found the boots to be perfectly worth of its money as they have used it for daily use as well as for hiking purpose. A few users although, have felt that the shoe does not live up to the quality, durability and comfort with its expensive price.
With Vibram Lags and Nylon built Arch Shanks, the Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boot offers a great flexibility and traction while hiking long distance in adverse terrains. The mid height ankle collars act as support from unwanted debris and particles from entering your boot. Moreover, the M-Select Fresh and Dry features keep your feet happy and fresh for hours. The boots are light in weight too, however, the cons are that they are not waterproof and their outsole build-up is found thin and wearing out in many cases, creating irritation while traversing on rocky surface. Still the boot is recommended for long day hikes and in dry conditions.
Let feet breathe while attacking the trails in this mid-top, multi-sport hiker.
the Merrel Moab Ventilator is a great score and the points deducted are for price
I love nature and winter and I love hiking, so mid cut boots were always a thing for me, therefore I have spent hundreds of dollars on good, excellent
The Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid Hiking Boots are a pretty decent pair of boots for a very competitive price.
Buying a new hiking boot is exciting, but challenging. Make sure you read the Merrell Men's Moab Ventilator review before you make your choice on boots.
