OK no joke so there I was…caught on the top of this mountain in Nepal when it started pouring rain. The problem with visiting Nepal during monsoon season is the obvious… that it rains. Anyways, getting back down the mountain in shin deep water was interesting. Thankfully these Merrell Moab Shoes are the best waterproof shoe and have excellent traction for the outdoors! As a cross-trainer low-cut shoe for everyday use or hiking in the outdoors they rock! In the over 40 countries that I have been to the Merrell Shoes are by far the best shoes I have ever owned or traveled with.
