Upper - Dura Leather and Mesh
Take on the trail with optimal comfort and key protection thanks to the Merrell Moab Gore-Tex Walking Shoes. It durable dura leather provides a tough and robust construction which works in unison with the bellows tongue to help keep debris out and fight through the terrain with ease. It supports the foot in place, locking it down into the shoe for a secure fit whilst the mesh material allows air to permeate the interior footbed keeping the foot and its surroundings cool and comfortable.
Further supporting the wearer's feet, M-Select FRESH lining naturally prevents bacterial microbes before it starts for fresh smelling feet, this coincides with the breathable mesh lining which actively wicks vapours away from the skin to keep the feet sweat free and comfortable.
The main feature of the upper structure is the GORE-TEX extended comfort footwear lining which keeps feet dry and comfortable. They are durably waterproof combined with optimised breathability, offering enduring weather protection. Water stays on the outside while perspiration can easily escape from the inside. Thanks to their non-insulated construction, they are the ideal solution for people who value outstanding climate comfort and heat release.
Lastly the upper also features a synthetic leather toe cap which provides further protection from trail terrains and a heel counter which lock's the achilles in place and gives support from heel strike through to midstance.
Midsole - Compression Moulded EVA and Merrell Air Cushion
The Merrell Moab utilises a compression moulded EVA technology which is formed and designed as a rigid midsole compound. Made of an ultra-resilient, soft foam with strategically placed firmer shock pads, Merrell's moulded EVA impact absorption system provides a soft landing, disperses impact and allows for a stable takeoff - the perfect balance of feel and protection so you can go further, faster and longer. Working in unison, Merrell air cushion in the heel absorbs shock and adds stability. It provides more support and protection from heel impact through to toe off.
The midsole also consist's of a moulded nylon arch shank. A rigid material in the shank region of the midsole keeps the foot in a neutral position throughout the midstance phase of the gait cycle. It acts upon torsion to stiffen the outsole, giving you a stable platform. Shaped to contour your feet for comfort and reinforcement.
Outsole - Vibram High-Performance Rubber
The Vibram Outsole consists of a rubber compound set in a circle lug formation to provide superior slip-resistant grip and durability allowing you to stand up to loose dirt and trail hazards with ease. The 5mm lug depth grips the ground with exceptional ability and allows for multi-directional movement on a variety of terrains.
