Merrell and Outdoor Voices have come together again to give the iconic Moab 2 hiking boot a new look. Best of all, the models are also eco-friendly.
The Outdoor Voices x Merrell Moab 2 Mid Eco — which comes in men’s and women’s sizing — is what the Wolverine-backed brand is calling its most eco-friendly and waterproof version of the Moab to date. To accomplish this, Merrell equipped the look with several components made with recycled content.
Included in the recycled content are the laces, footbeds and midsoles. Specifically for the midsoles, the brand utilized Bloom foam that is made with 10% algae biomass, which Merrell stated cleans and restores the environment when harvested. Also, the company employed recycled polyester in the mesh and the webbing, and used wool in the tongues.
The looks also feature trail-ready tech such as molded nylon arch shanks, Merrell’s shock-absorbing Air Cushion in the heel and Vibram EcoDura outsoles that are made with 30% recycled rubber.
