Finding the right footwear is perhaps one of the most important things to do whenever we travel. Whether it’s strolling around the city or traversing hardcore trails, it’s a must to have a sturdy pair of shoes to join us around the world.
Merrell always takes this into consideration, which is why their shoes offer nothing but incredible robust features. We have tried the brand’s new collection—Moab FST 2—during our latest excursion in Rizal’ Mount Binutasan with leading outdoor outfitter Trail Adventours, and we guarantee that its impressive footwear technologies can withstand even the toughest terrains—and these reasons alone are enough:
- Water and dust resistance
Its M Select ™ DRY feature seals out water and lets moisture escape, a good thing in hikes and tours that involve crossing puddles or muddy trails.
- Extreme comfort and durability!
The collection has what is called the Vibram MegaGrip technology, which gives traction and durability either on wet or dry surfaces. Its heel air cushion also provides superior shock absorption and stability. This means running and jumping all you can with minimal risk for foot aches!
- On-fleek flexible foot support
Another amazing thing about Merell’s new hiker is its Kinetic Fit™ BASE insole. This insole is customized, designed based on your own foot—resulting connected and protected movement.
- Lightweight champion
Despite the slew of features, this trusty hiker is still incredibly light, weighing only 800 grams! This feature lets you move with more ease during hikes and is also very convenient to pack—great for spontaneous adventure trips.
- Its sleek look!
With its sleek look, the Moab FST 2 shoes aren’t just good for the mountains and trails, they also work well as everyday urban footwear. Hardcore and on-the-go travelers, the collection is definitely for you all!
It has M Select™ FRESH technology, which releases antimicrobial agents that reduces shoe odor—great for hikes and excursions last at least a full-day.
