Merrell Siren Edge Waterproof size and fit
The Merrell Siren Edge Waterproof only comes in lengths that cater to women. It is offered in medium width. Its lace-up closure creates a personalized fit, and the contoured footbed provides long-lasting comfort. This shoe fits true to size.
The Siren Edge Waterproof provides grip through its Vibram rubber outsole. It designed to grant traction on rugged terrain. It is also engineered to deliver power and ground stability on every stride.
The specialized lugs on the outsole are incorporated with the non-skid M Select Grip. It’s a slip-resistant rubber that releases dirt and debris, consequently, not hindering adhesion to the ground. M Select Grip is designed to stabilize the feet over different surfaces.
The midsole has various components for cushioning, support and shock absorption. The unit itself is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate which is a soft and flexible material. Its cushioning property grants comfort to the user. Underfoot cushioning also comes from Merrell air cushion purposely positioned in the heel to absorb shock and adding stability. For hike-long support and comfort, a molded nylon arch shank is inserted in the internal midsole cavity. As it stiffens the underfoot structure, it gives a stable and even platform. It’s made of nylon, so the shoe has a relatively sufficient bend to create a more natural movement of the feet.
The shoe comes with an M Select Fit.Eco blended EVA footbed for added cushioning. It follows the contours of the foot and can control odor to keep the foot fresh during hikes.
The upper uses a combination of contemporary and vibrant color display. It is made of mesh and 3D print mesh with the M Select DRY impermeable membrane that seals out water and lets moisture escape. This waterproofing technology from Merrell makes wet outdoor adventures more manageable.
It has a bellows tongue that prevents debris from weaseling its way into the insides of the shoe. Adjusting the fit is a lace-up closure with flat laces and webbed eyelets. For extra comfort, the tongue and collar are padded. A heel pull tab is available for easy on and off.
