What you might not know about the Hydrotrekker Synthetic Sieve

Dedicated water channels. The Hydrotrekker Synthetic Sieve’s comfy midsole comes with a handful of ports through which wet elements are dispersed, preventing sluggish strides as you come out of the water. These channels also provide extra ventilation with every step.

Siped construction. Ever slipped on a smooth, wet surface before (like the deck of your friend’s yacht)? In this pair of Merrell hikers, that may be a thing of the past, thanks to its siped outsole. This type of sole construction is reminiscent of the grippy paws of cats and dogs.

Removable footbed. It may not look it, but the default insole of the Hydrotrekker Synthetic Sieve can be replaced with your preferred insert. That said, you might want to keep it, as its water-friendly construction contributes to the shoe’s quick drying time.

Padded tongue. Additional comfort, particularly around the instep area, is yours in this bad boy. You can thank its fabric-lined tongue for that.
