Who should but the Merrell Siren Sport Q2
This hiking gear from Merrell is ideal for individuals who want:
- a low-cut, breathable pair of shoes that works well in summer walks
- a durable leather shoe that offers comfort especially on tricky terrains
- an odor-free foot even after long hikes
Merrell’s durable M. Select Grip outsole
In response to the high demands of hikers when it comes to surface traction, Merrell engineers gave the Siren Sport Q2 the M. Select Grip outersole. This durable layer has 3.5 mm, diamond-shaped lugs that are strategically placed across its surface to provide ample grip on terrains mostly characterized by loose rocks and wet elements.
These lugs are also adequately spaced apart to shed debris and disperse water effectively. Aside from being the shoe’s only source of traction, this outsole also functions as a protective bumper with its extension covering the tip of the forefoot zone.
The springy yet tough QForm 2 midsole
The Merrell Siren Sport Q2 offers ground cushioning and stability at the same time. It’s a rubber layer specifically designed for the female foot. Its dual-density construction provides zonal comfort, while the heel-centering technology that it is imbued with further stabilizes the user’s footing whether stationary or on the move.
The midsole’s heel is extra chunky to make way for Merrell’s patented Air Cushion technology—a recess that gives extra comfort and improves shock absorption.
Supplemental to the Siren Sport Q2’s level of comfort is the M. Select Fit.Tri footbed. This removable insert is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate (in short, EVA) which makes it stress resistant yet flexible. The engineers gave it special contours to grant wearers tri-arch support.
Siren Sport Q2’s comfortable upper
The Merrell Siren Sport Q2 is irrefutably lightweight due primarily to its mesh upper. A nubuck leather overlay strengthens this breathable upper and provides ample abrasion protection. Merrell engineers also built this shoe with a bellows tongue.
This type of tongue has a persistent construction which bridges its sides to the upper, leaving no space for debris and other foreign elements in which to enter. In addition, this low-cut hiker comes with a pair of pull tabs for easy on and off.
The Siren Sport Q2’s standard lacing system consists of standard eyelets and metallic lace loops. It also sports a pair of fabric lace loops placed just above the shoe’s instep to give users precise ankle fit when enough lace pressure is applied in this zone.
A protective rand is placed at the front end of the shoe. This sturdy covering reinforces the forefoot zone to give wearers a level of protection against bumps and abrasive elements.
