The Merrell + Outdoor Voices Moab 2 Mid Eco ($140) has all the qualities you want in a hiking boot. They come in two new colors (Lava and Limestone), and they're durable, waterproof, and use eco-friendly materials. There's recycled content in the laces, footbeds, and midsoles, recycled polyester in the mesh and webbing, and wool in the tongue. And my favorite part: The foam midsole is made with 10 percent algae biomass, which restores the environment when it's harvested, transforming green water into clean water during the process.
Aside from the top-notch quality that'll allow you to wear them for years, they're also great for beginners. You don't need to break them in like most options you'll find; they're comfortable straight out of the box. They also have the Merrell Air Cushion in the heel, which absorbs shock and adds stability—something my sometimes-clumsy self appreciates. If you want to try the hiking boot for yourself, shop the two new options below.
