Featuring the M Select Grip rubber outsole, the Siren Sport Q2 Waterproof from Merrell provides traction on most trail conditions. Its 3.5 mm deep lugs shed off accumulated muck to prevent slips and falls.

The midsole of this low-cut day hiking shoe features the Q Form 2 dual-density midsole. Its women-specific profile promotes proper body alignment, support, and stability.

Merrell added the M Select FIT.TRI, a blended EVA contoured footbed to enhance support. This footbed is lined with the M Select Fresh, an antimicrobial feature, which helps maintain an odor-free in-shoe environment.

The upper of the Merrell Siren Sport Q2 Waterproof uses a blend of durable nubuck leather and breathable mesh panels. It is made waterproof through the M Select Dry membrane which wicks out internal moisture and acts as a barrier against water intrusions.

It has a bellows tongue that prevents trail debris from entering the shoe. A rubber reinforcement is placed on the toes to protect against scrapes. Pull tabs are also attached on its padded tongue and collar for easier on and off. Its traditional lace-up closure includes combination eyelets and a synthetic lace.
