Merrell Men’s Moab 2 Mid Waterproof Hiking Boot Black Friday Deals 2020
Today the bouquet we are looking at the Moab to vent mid by Merrill war now I got to see first-generation before they even went into production of the Merrill work line and I gotta tell you at that viewing I wasn’t impressed all I saw was Merrill with cop toes added to it now the salesmen at the time he didn’t really break down all the finer points about the shoes because he was just out trying to get the shoes in stores so even though
I was privileged to see in that first bit before they hit production and I wasn’t impressed now that I got the whole a pair with about almost two years almost three years they believe something like that under their belt of producing work shoes I gotta say I am impressed today it’s no longer just a cheap outdoor semi hiking semi-casual really something that your dad would wear types you that most Merrill’s are they have really carved away a section that is their own in the work shoe market now the wall AB to vent well it’s got a lot of crap going on it’s got a lot of things that are happening under the surface that you don’t see but you do feel if you’re coming from something that’s like this that’s of lesser quality now mainly it’s the Merrill sole now Merrill sole patterns are Merrill sole patterns you don’t confuse Merrill patterns with anything else now when you see something that looks like a Merrill sole pattern and it’s not a Merrill it kind of blows your mind you know that they’re copying Merrill but Merrill has these characteristics these little oval things the way the all these other little shapes worked these are specific to Merrill shoes whether it’s jungle MOX whether it’s moab ventilators or whether it’s their hiking boots all of that is incorporated into the work line so the way they build their soles is no great secret it’s a harder skin on top of a soft buttery soft cushiony soft midsole something is going to absorb a lot of shock if you’re jumping around in these say you’re a builder say you’re a contractor and installer jumping off ladders jumping out of the backs of the trucks something like this with a midsole like this is excellent for you guys because it absorbs all that shock from the long days now there’s a few things that I hate about these shoes and I still hate these facts that companies are still doing this but we’re gonna get to that at the end I really want to point out the things that I love one waterproof membrane barrier built-in I love that I love the fact that they’re putting in a membrane and they’re keeping the price low that really means that you’re gonna get something you can depend on and you’re not going to break the bank when it comes to waterproof boots the comp toe that they’re using the way they shape it the way it fits and feels when your foots inside you don’t realize it’s a comp – I love that part the part that I truly do love that I wish a lot of companies would start doing is they incorporate a toe plate that’s down inside here it’s a plastic plate it’s not a puncture proof plate but it is puncture resistant the reason I love that is because of the way most of us walk when you come from wearing hikers when you’re when you’re a hiker type guy you are a strictly a toe to heel Walker you’re not dragging your heels you’re not dragging your feet so when you walk like that the first place that comes in contact with something sharp is your toes and putting that plate in there it’s just an awesome idea and anything to add more safety to a safety shoe just makes them awesome now the other thing I really like about it is the fit Merrill’s always fit really well though you have to find your size in the fit these work shoes are no different than the street shoes they are pretty much apples for apples so if you’re wearing an 11 in a Moab ventilator now low-cut summer shoe you can move right into an 11 work shoe from them and there’s really gonna be no difference because they’ve incorporated the spacing for the safety toe they’ve incorporated a tighter heel cup they’ve incorporated where your arch should land they understand what it takes to build a boot I mean they’ve had a lot of experience in building outdoor shoes approach shoes and stuff like that so when they move into safety shoes and they move into work shoes it’s really not that hard for them to build it correctly the first time now when you look deep inside there and you pull out the insole this is what you find and this isn’t bad this isn’t I mean I’m always talking about insults this isn’t the worst insult we’ve seen this type of in Seoul before where you’ve get the nice hard arch the nice hard heel with the soft Center in the heel we’ve seen this in many brands mainly outdoor brands build insoles like this sock liners whatever you want to call them but the nice thing about Merrill is with every pair that you buy you email them with a special coupon code and they send you a fresh pair of these now I like that I like that because this is going to be an almost impossible thing to replace over-the-counter if they’re not available for sale so them send you out a second pair is going to throw another two months into a pair of shoes like this right off the bat now size and fit like I said if you have worn Merrill’s before they fit great but actually what it boils down to is you have to understand your foot for this type of shoe this isn’t like fitting a work boot a heavy-duty industrial type work boot thick work boots stuff like that this is a hiker and this should be fit just like a hiker so when you go to try these on make sure you bring extra socks as always as you should when you’re trying on new boots but this one specifically make sure you bring a lightweight sock because you’re probably gonna wear these in the warmer months so you don’t want your heavy-duty winter socks unless you can pull off a non insulated waterproof boot like this in the wintertime go for it but if you can use this as your summertime springtime fall boot lighter socks to do the fitting so now about the things that I hate and the things I hate about this shoe are still superficial they don’t really impede anything on the boot these are just things that I wish they would figure out how to fix it or make it better or just how to get away from using the materials they’re using now there’s a lot of pieces sewn into this upper for my taste to many pieces there’s too much going on there’s too many parts there’s too many stitches through different materials and that just leaves things that are going to fail though I love this rubberized toe this rubberized toe is over for other layers of material so at some point you’re gonna catch that edge and some stitches are gonna have to fail I don’t like that now that could be a year and a half there could be two years you could have thrown these out or given these to somebody else and then they’ll fail but I don’t like that many layers the other thing that I really hate and I hate when companies do this I hate when they use polypropylene for laces now I understand tensile strength and polypropylene it’s a very very strong material I understand that tinsel strength though is on a straight stretch when you start bending it and you start twisting it and you start adding friction to the polypropylene just from the laces moving around daily eventually they fail they fail on every single brand of shoes that decides to add this visual aesthetic to make them look a little bit nicer this is one place that we really should have eyelets if we’re building industrial construction type shoes we don’t want to create any weak spots for the guys because when they’re in the field and they’re working the last thing they want is to have a lace break or an eyelid break especially if they’re doing a job away from home now they got to replace their shoes or they get figure out a way to tie their shoes so I don’t like that I really don’t so that’s the marrow work moab to vet with a comp toe if you’re currently wearing anything from male work guess what i want you to comment below i want you to tell us what you think which generation of merrill work are you wearing are you happy are you replacing them with the same thing if you’re interested in seeing some detail photos of the overall shoe and the places that i don’t like just all these pieces put together that polypropylene that they use for the laces and just everything else that’s going on if you want to see some detail photos swing by to boot guy calm I will have a full blog posting all about this Marilyn please don’t forget to hit that
