Be it hiking under scorching summer heat or treading through puddles in heavy rain, the Merrell Women's Moab 2 Waterproof hiking shoe with its waterproof suede and mesh upper, multidirectional TC5+ Vibram outsole and contoured EVA Footbed will keep you ready for all weather conditions. In resistance to water, the M Select Dry membrane works wonders as you are treading through damp foliage or braving the incessant rains. In doing so, the membrane never compromises its breathability, thereby, wicks out moisture and keeps your feet dry for hours.

The Contoured EVA midsole is blended with the M Select FIT.ECO+ footbed that provides zonal heel support as well as the arches. The molded Nylon Arch Shanks are there to keep your arches flexible and help them attain torsional rigidity. Now, while hiking through rugged terrains full of boulders, rocks or obnoxious branches, your feet need support and traction at the same time.

Here comes the air heel cushion that acts as a shock absorber, the rubber toe cap acting as abrasion resistant and the Vibram Outsoles with 5 mm lug depth that has a grip over almost every possible terrain.  


The high-performance Suede leather and mesh covered uppers let the vapor and moisture out of the feet and seals out water. Another unique feature is the insertion of two silicone bands, which run along the length covering both the inside and outside of your feet. These bands inserted into the uppers will act as a proper frame to hold your feet, thereby, reducing the tendency of twisting ankles.
