Merrell Moab 2 GORE-TEX Walking Shoes
Experience out-of-the-box comfort in this ventilated hiker. Featuring durable leathers, a supportive footbed and Vibram traction, you can now see why Moab stands for mother-of-all-boots.
The Moab 2 GORE-TEX Walking Shoes from Merrell is made from GORE-TEX fabric. GORE-TEX is a fully waterproof membrane which blocks out water but is also superbly breathable, allowing the wearer to stay dry, cool and comfortable as they perform.
In addition, the upper of the Moab 2 GORE-TEX is constructed using a performance sued leather and mesh upper for the best possible results while out and about. The performance suede leather enhances durability to the upper protecting your foot from sharp rocks/objects that you may come across during the tricky trail. The mesh is strategically placed in areas that are prone to moisture build-up and areas that need ventilation the most. The mesh allows air to fully permeate the upper, providing a constant supply of fresh, cool air while simultaneously pushing out hot, muggy air that resides in the boots during heavy exertion.
A bellows tongue works to keep moisture out of the shoe as well as shielding the foot and inside of the shoe from dirt and debris which could possibly enter, especially on loose, rugged trails. A protective rubber toe cap helps to provide protection to the toes as you traverse through the unknown of the trails. The toe cap prevents injury to the toes in case you stub them on rocks or any other hard objects that the terrain may throw at you.
