The Best Boots for Jungle Hiking: Merrell Moab Ventilator Mid

I'm moving to Puerto Rico and I need hiking boots to match the climate and terrain. Since I've got narrow feet, I've been considering the Vasque Breeze or Wasatch. What do you think?

Merrell’s Moab Ventilator Mid ($100) are designed as a desert boot, with a focus on breathability, but they hold their own in damp and warm weather, too. Without a Gore-Tex liner, they're not the right boots for a downpour, but the lack of Gore-Tex will actually boost breathability in mixed conditions. And they’re extra lightweight—really a high-top running shoe—but are still comfortable and protective.
