Those who have spent enough time trekking through the great outdoors know how crucial good hiking boots are. From protecting our feet against harsh weather to keeping them comfy enough to endure long hours of travel, picking the right hiking boots is one of the most important decisions you’ll have to make when planning your next outdoor adventure.

With an outdoor heritage going as far back as 1981, Merrell knows a thing or two about what makes a hiking boot great, and they proved it with the Moab, which is regarded as one of the world’s best-selling hikers. Collaborating with gear experts Huckberry, the M.O.A.B 3 GTX is the latest iteration of the fan-favorite hiking boot, updated with the latest footwear technology and an attractive new aluminum colorway.

The Huckberry x Merrell M.O.A.B. 3 GTX keeps every step cool by using a breathable GORE-TEX waterproof membrane and uppers made from full-grain leather and breathable mesh. A non-marking Vibram TC5+ outsole delivers an overall balance of grip, traction, durability, and flexibility. A Merrell Air Cushion in the heel and its Super Rebound Compound provide durable shock absorption to help reduce torque and allow for a smooth transition into the midfoot. A bellows tongue to keep out debris and a toe cap for added reinforcement provides another layer of protection.

Comfort is ensured using a Kinetic Fit Advanced removable contoured footbed with reinforced heel cushioning and a molded nylon arch shank, which helps the boot keep its shape over time and provides some much-needed arch support as well. Huckberry and Merrell show their love and respect for the environment by utilizing breathable mesh lining, laces, and webbing made entirely from recycled materials.

This unique Aluminum colorway comes with an extra pair of blue laces that call back to Merrell’s original 80s hikers, adding a touch of retro appeal to your outdoor ensemble. Grab yourself a pair at the link below.
