The Merrell Moab 3 Is Nearly Half Off Right Now


Since its debut a handful of years ago, the Merrell Moab 2 has ascended to the top of hiking boot Mt. Olympus—along with, y’know, countless other actual mountains. In the past, we’ve called it one of the best values on the market and named it one of the best boots around, period. It’s easy to see why. (“Moab”, after all, is an acronym for Mother of All Boots.) Its strategically-placed panels will keep your feet cool, its Gore-Tex exterior will keep ‘em dry, and its clingy Vibram soles will help you soldier through all manner of terrains with ease. It doesn’t hurt that the beloved, gorp-inflected design looks just as good with zip-off pants and an anorak as it does with baggy jeans and a statement sweater

In the years since the Moab 2 hit the market, it’s become the trail shoe du jour of countless hiking enthusiasts, along with an equal number of middle school biology teacher types who dig its unbeatable practicality as much as they do a lecture on the mitochondria. But, much like your days in middle school, the Moab 2 couldn’t stick around forever.

With the recent introduction of the Moab 3, Merrell is shipping off the 2 to greener pastures, slowly phasing out production of the beloved trail titan in favor of the newer silhouette. What does that mean, exactly? Aesthetically, not much beyond a near-imperceptible facelift (a good thing). Functionally, it means better arch support, traction, and stability—along with a softer midsole and an even grippier Vibram outsole (also good things). The latest Moab is more earth-friendly than its predecessor, too; it’s partially made with recycled materials. In other words, wins all-around!

Another winning characteristic the Moab 3 held onto? The silhouette’s shockingly approachable sticker price—regardless of the version that piques your fancy, you’ll never pay more than $150. 

As you might’ve anticipated, the Merrell Moab 3 is a big hit, which means it rarely goes on sale. But rarely is the operative word here, because right this very moment, you can get in on all that trail-proven quality and stylist-approved design for almost half off. Like its predecessor, the Moab 3 comes in a gang of colors and heights, and with varying degrees of waterproofing. So if the sheer number of options feels daunting, think back, once again, to your middle school days, and catch ’em all

Oh, and don’t worry diehard Moab 2 stans—Merrell hasn’t fully sold through its inventory yet, so there are still scores of them loitering around the digital aisles, often at equally jaw-dropping prices. Adventure—and massive savings—is out there!
