by fromSuper comfy but fall apart quickly *I haven't even gone hiking in them yet!!!*I bought these in October 2007 and the sides of the shoe (facing the other foot) began wearing away very quickly, especially on the little ellipsoid "nubbins." Siding material is not leather; it's foam-like and can't take scuffing caused by your sides of your feet hitting the other shoe while you walk. It's January 2008 and the siding by my big toes have finally worn away, exposing the Gore-Tex. Unfortunately I will have to return them. I'm sad because they're perfect otherwise. But I paid a pretty penny and believe expensive shoes ought to last. I've never had a problem with my other shoes. My husband has a different type of Merrell with sturdy leather and they've lasted years. I've seen the Siren model in [...] stores with suede, and it looks like they've been scuffed as well. Probably will last longer than mine, but definitely not years.[...] Sorry shoes, I love you though.

by fromProblems with fit I bought these Merrells for hiking and trail running. The stiff fit and narrow toe area put pressure on my toes and the top of my foot, although the length was fine. I kept wearing them in hopes that they would "break in" and become more comfortable, but unfortunately I ended up with a Morton's neuroma after only a few months. I haven't been running or hiking in the past 6 months because of the neuroma, which bothers me even when I walk. I ended up giving the lightly-used Merrells to Goodwill. Only buy these shoes if you have narrow feet and low arches.

by fromSo sad these Merrells didn't work! Have a pair of Merrells that I bought like 8 years ago and ADORE... have worn a billion days. But, finally, they wore out. So I decided to treat myself to a cool new pair of Merrells. Found the Siren Sports online and ordered them up, all excited about the cool look of what I expected to be a kick-butt new pair of hikers. Took them out for a 3-mile hike, and quickly realized these were not my old Merrells. I don't know if I'm exceptionally tender-footed or what, but I could feel every pebble on the trail (which wasn't even particularly rocky or rough!), and by the time we reached the half-way point, I felt like I was hiking in my slippers. Took them off as soon as we reached the car, and when we got home, I compared them to the old faithful Merrells (the ones with no tongue, which I love -- just slip them on and cinch them up!). The Sirens are MUCH less stable/solid in the sole and I just could not get them laced tightly enough to provide the stabilization I'm looking for. So sad! I don't think it's a flaw in the shoe, just that they are not the right shoe for me. Bummer! Found a pair of Keens that feel much more solid, so I'm giving those a try. But I'm really sad about the Merrells not working out!

by fromWill be returning these Just not a lot of cushioning in these shoes. I normally wear an 8 1/2, but I ordered a 9 to wear thicker socks. I can't even wear them with thin socks cause my toes touch the end of the shoe. Very disappointed - I really wanted to like this shoe.

by fromComfortable but Needed Repairs This was my first pair of Merrell shoes, so I have no history to base the quality of other shoes from this manufacturer. They are comfortable shoes, although they offer different support than that of running shoes (obviously since they are cross-training shoes). Being that I was used to the support and fit of running shoes, it took a little getting used to. I would recommend trying them on before purchasing so you know you like the fit. My biggest concern with these shoes is that for the TWO pairs that I have wore, the socket in which the lace is inserted (at the top of the shoe) ripped out when I was tying it. This occurred when tugging the laces to tighten the fit- and I'm not that agressive when it comes to tying shoes, so I don't feel I used excessive force. The first time it happened, I thought it was just a freak occurence so I exchanged them for a second pair at REI. The second time it happened, I took a closer look at the stitching- only to see that there is hardly any holding the plastic socket to the shoe. I then took the shoes to a repair shop, they validated my observation that there are hardly any thread bearings holding the socket to the shoe. Bottom-line, if you like Merrell shoes, you'll probably like the fit of these shoes. However, being new to the manufacturer, I was disappointed with the quality (especially for the price). I've had less-expensive shoes that have held up better.

by fromNot a good buy. I was very disappointed with these shoes. I have had other pairs of Merrells for years that are still in great shape, but these are already falling apart on me and I have had them less than a year. My foot slides around like crazy in them because they are hard to tie tightly. I would not recommend buying them for any reason other than for everyday shoes.

by fromNot so Soft I wanted a good walking shoe that I would wear more often than my "white" walkers. LOVE my Merrell hiking boots, thought these would be a perfect choice. Unfortunately, not nearly as comfortable as my walkers nor my hiking boots :-(. Sad to take them back.

by fromFeel comfy but laces loosen quickly I like the fit, but the lace design is where the shoe lost me. I wear them at work to go up and down stairs, walking around the city a bit at lunch and break times. The soles are super slick with any kind of water ie RAIN. And the laces I have to tighten about every hour. Besides that they are ok.
