Merrell Moab Flight: An iconic hiking shoe recast into a trail runner

Merrell expanded its acclaimed collection of Moab hiking footwear to introduce a trail running-ready Moab Flight. Reduced weight and responsive cushioning make it a versatile option for various trail activities.

What is best for?

  • Terrain: light and moderate trails, including packed dirt and snow
  • Activity: long hours of running and hiking

As there is no rock plate, the shoe is not suited for technical, rocky areas.

Merrell Moab Flight vs. Moab Speed

Moab Flight was designed with running in mind.

Moab Speed is oriented towards hiking, backpacking, and fastpacking. Thus, it is equipped with a more reinforced upper and extra outsole rubber. These make the Speed slightly heavier (0.7 oz / 20 g).

Highlights of the Moab Flight

  • Light and responsive ride: The firmer FloatPro cushioning helps you conquer the miles with ease.
  • Sticky and lasting outsole: All thanks to the Vibram rubber and 3-mm lugs.

Sustainability in the Merrel Moab Flight

The Flight not only belongs to the brand’s vegan-friendly collection but also features recycled materials in several of its parts:

  • laces (100%)
  • upper (70%)
  • midsole top sheet (50%)
  • outsole rubber (30%)
