Merrell releases limited edition Funfetti MOAB 2 Boot

OUTDOOR lifestyle brand Merrell has been at the forefront of the hiking shoe category for 40 years. Known for the Moab boot — a staple in yearly lists for “the best hiking boots” by The New York Times, Travel and Leisure, and Forbes — Merrell has a devoted fanbase that spans hardcore hikers to those who embrace outdoor fashion. To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the “Mother of All Boots” is given the funfetti treatment from its uppers down to its outsoles. The Funfetti Moab 2 Mid Waterpoof bears the hallmarks of the regular Moab such as durable leather uppers, a supportive footbed, and incredible on-trail traction. The uppers are reimagined in off-white while the speckled Vibram outsole is supposed to imitate rainbow sprinkles. The boot is punctuated by multicolor laces that tie the birthday theme together. These shoes may look like a sweet treat but they’re made to perform in the trails. This limited-edition Moab comes in whole men’s sizes from 7 to 12. Shop the Moab 2 Funfetti in Merrell concept stores nationwide and online at www.merrell.com.ph.
