Merrell Moab Adventure Lace Waterproof History

Over thirty years ago, a craftsman named Randy Merrell slowly became well known, especially amongst outdoor enthusiasts, for his excellent handmade cleats that are created to withstand nature's rustic terrains. Subsequently, Randy's passion for producing high quality and efficient cleats earned him the acclamation for the "best hiking cleats" by the Backpacker Magazine.

The company eventually decided to expand their expertise from hiking and custom-made cleats to releasing their first cross training shoes in 1993. Since then Merrell has been producing footwear that is more lightweight and versatile than their past products. Today, Merrell is focused on shelling out more lifestyle-based merchandise without gearing away from their core values.

One by-product of this expansion is the Merrell Moab Adventure Lace Waterproof. It is lighter than most hiking footwear without sacrificing its durability and efficiency. The shoe from the Moab collection is equipped with Vibram outsole, which was first introduced in 1995. This technology is utilized on shoes built for the roughest of terrains.

Additional Info

  • The shoe is available in Medium and Wide widths.
  • The insoles can be removed.
  • The Moab range was first introduced in 1996.
