Size and fit

The men’s Merrell Downton Moc is available in sizes 7-15 in medium width. It’s built as a low-top shoe, which allows the ankle to move freely. It also has a slip-on design with expanding elastic sides, enabling the wearer to slip the sneaker on or off easily. The leather upper delivers a firm and reliable feel for the foot.

Merrell Downtown Moc Style

Two colorways were released for the Merrell Downton Moc, the Merrell Stone and the Slate. They both have a low-profile appeal that will go well with different outfits for everyday styling. Furthermore, this model has a classy dress shoe silhouette that makes it suitable for dressing up or down.

For laidback occasions, the kicks can easily be paired with pants, jeans or shorts, along with a t-shirt. Neutral or earth tone colors, in particular, will complement the shoe’s low-key flair. Meanwhile, for dressy events, parties or the workplace, the sneaker can be worn with chinos, slacks or straight-fit pants along with a button-down or polo shirt.

Notable Features

The low-top Merrell Downtown Moc features a perforated full grain leather upper that is as eye-catching as it is functional, delivering a well-ventilated feel for the warm days. This model is built as a slip-on with a stretch collar for easy on and off ability.

Compared to other slip-on kicks, this shoe has a dressier design, yet it has a laid-back charm for the most casual of days. A contrasting appeal is added by the sneaker’s ripple sole, which gives it an outdoor-ready vibe. The Merrell logo is debossed near the collar for a low-key branding accent.

Merrell Downtown Moc History

In 1981, Merrell was established by Clark Matis, John Schweizer, and Randy Merrell. The brand sought to manufacture hiking cleats that were more affordable yet high performing.

Such models as the Merrell Downtown Moc proves the brand’s innovative streak in the casual department. It’s a practical yet stylish slip-on sneaker with a modern perforated leather upper.

Feeling and looking cool during warm weather is what this shoe is all about. Moreover, it has a convenient stretch collar, which makes it easier for the sneaker to be put on or off. Completing the well-rounded design is the EVA sole, which offers stability while the wearer pushes the boundaries of urban adventure.
