How do they compare to Merrill's?

Which Merrill's are you inquiring about? From a brand standpoint, Adidas is an athletic brand and they design shoes for "outdoor athletes". I think that is a big differentiator between the two brands and the respective muse to which they design their shoes for.

The Moab2, which is pretty much what I've been wearing for 10+ years as an all around shoe, but looking at the upcoming Boy Scout schedule looks like will be doing 55 miles of hiking (day hikes) and 55 miles of backpacking over the next 6 months, so am looking in to alternatives. https://www.rei.com/product/113826/merrell-moab-2-vent-low-hiking-shoes-mens?CAWELAID=&cm_mmc=PLA_bng|404_1050537717||none|3c7b221b-d1d6-441c-abb3-b8804d15fa33|pla-4584894771012089:aud-806381883&kclid=3c7b221b-d1d6-441c-abb3-b8804d15fa33&msclkid=f718cb9f82241aab742597ddaa843887

At a glance, I'd say the key differences to the Moab 2 would be:
  1. Continental Rubber (I am obviously biased, but I find Conti to be the softest & grippiest rubber around), we mimic tred from their mountain biking tires
  2. Upper Fabric - We used a closed ripstop mesh upper... Compared to the moab, it will be a lower profile and most likely keep a bit more sand out of your shoes
  3. Quick-Lace - Kevlar sliding lace closure system (can be swapped out for regular lace)
