These core Merrell styles rarely go on sale.

I have the nearly identical Jungle Moc waterproof, the winter version of my favorite travel shoe, the Jungle Moc Leather. It is warm, sturdy and indeed waterproof. I just walked in from 5 hours in snowshoes and ice caving in Svalbard in my pair, intending to write a review and here comes a great deal.

The profile is of a normal shoe, so it does not cover the ankle. It is slip-on for convenience. Those needing ankle support or high boots should look elsewhere. I love the versatility for even up to business casual, and have put these shoes through much punishment over my years of travel. I don’t own true hiking boots, don’t want to pack giant shoes or wear them on the road.

    Thanks so much – I just bought a pair!

    No size 15 and they are frequently this cheap on Amazon.

    Thanks! And darn… I debated long and hard about these. I used to live in Syracuse, NY: home of the Golden Snowball award. I now live in the south. I figured I wouldn’t have too much use for these, and was planning a vacation to Peru. Well, as you have it plans changed and now I’m going to Iceland in March (a.k.a. late winter)….on WOW airlines (read packing VERY light). So I picked up a pair, still on sale on Amazon sub-$100 but not quite at this nice price point. I appreciate the recommendation, if they were good enough for Greenland in January (?) then they’re good enough for Iceland in March.

    @TCCQuest – knee-deep snow in Svalbard in January was not ideal, but I was not going to carry giant boots around on my trips. Have think wool socks, tuck your pants in, and good to go.
