Good to know

The Merrell Jungle Moc Waterproof is available in both men and women's sizes. The gentlemen can choose from sizes 7 to 15 while the ladies can select from sizes 5 to 11. Some consumers said that the shoe fits true to size after its break-in period, but the majority of reviewers found it too snug and recommended going a full size up.

Outfitted in a leak-proof, premium pigskin leather, the Merrell Jungle Moc Waterproof exudes a rugged yet sleek look that could keep you comfortable from the streets to the campsite. The slip-on design somehow balances out the rugged-looking sole, which allows users to wear it while running errands, or taking long walks on rough terrain.

Crafted from premium materials, this shoe is a low-maintenance everyday shoe that is both comfortable and sturdy. Its low-top, slip-on construction is also one of its main selling points according to the consumers. Moreover, the shoe features some of the brand’s signature technologies such as the M – Select Fit.ECO footbed and Merrell Air cushion for shock absorption and stability.

More than three decades ago, a skilled craftsman named Randy Merrell became a household name amongst outdoor enthusiasts. His expertise in producing high-quality cleats made the rounds in the outdoor community until he became the go-to guy for well-crafted footgear. Eventually, Randy's dedication and passion for his craft earned him the title for the "best hiking cleats" by the Backpacker Magazine.

With success such as the brand's, expansion was inevitable. Merrell introduced new product lines including more models with intended lifestyle purposes. But what most consumers appreciate is that the brand didn't lose their core values on premium quality and superb comfort.

First introduced in 1998, the Merrell Jungle Moc was marketed as the first "After-sport" casual shoes. This low-top slip-on shoe is still available in the market today and is widely known for its excellent comfort, support, and durability. Throughout its existence, the Jungle Moc has been overhauled a couple of time, and one of them is the Merrell Jungle Moc Waterproof. As what its name suggests, it is a waterproof version of the original and comes in several colorway options.

  • The shoe retails for $100.
  • A heel tab provides easier on and off.
  • Its insoles are removable.
