I have worn the Merrells almost everyday for the past 1 1/2
years. They are the most comfortable and durable shoes I
have, and they show almost no wear. Only thing not original
is replacement laces. I wear these for casual office
everyday, as well as weekends. They are still comfortable
and great for summer or winter in the snow. Buying another
pair to keep on hand - in case they ever get discontinued.

Spent 5 days backpacking in the Medicine Bow area along the
North Platte, from 6 mile gap to Picaroon and back. These
shoes were fantastic. Tremendous support and great traction
along a narrow trail with scree, debre

I have only had one occasion to wear the Ventilator. I had
heard great things about it so decided to try for myself. On
the hike they were fantastic; great traction even on
slippery surfaces and wonderful support. But the next day my
left sole was very tender. I cannot say that was caused by
the shoe (my right felt fine) so I will withhold final
judgment until I take the opportunity to wear them another
time or two.

I use the Moab Ventilator for walking on the beach and day
hiking on trails mostly in state and national parks. Wore
them on the App Trail in the Smoky Mountains and in the
Grand Canyon. Would not recommend for long, serious hiking,
but long, serious hikers probably know that.

This is my second pair of Moab Ventilators. My first pair is
being "promoted" to a work-around-the-house shoe, not
because it is worn out, but because they look used (because
they have been used!). I am flat footed, so finding a shoe
that is comfortable is a challenge.

This is my third pair of Ventilators. I cycle these in with
my other ones. I wear Merrells daily and love them. IF you
like these try the waterproof versions for the sloppy stuff.
Look good in shorts, jeans, or Dockers. I turned my buddies
on to these for daily wear. Super comfortable right out of
the box. Very stable on rough terrain and dry out easily.
Dog walker in AZ from Arizona
I walk 3-5 +miles every day walking our dog, but my feet
were killing me! I've tried numerous pairs of running shoes
but couldn't find the support that I needed. I have a pair
of the Moab Ventilator hi-tops that I use for hiking and
knew that they were great but I wasn't sure about the
everyday/city wear. Night and day! Out of the box they were
great and my feet haven't given me a problem since!
