Merrell’s Siren Q2 Women’s Hiking Boot Is Gender Engineered For Women
When it comes to women’s hiking boots, many of Fresh Air Junkie’s field testers have very different likes and fitment issues. Some simply can’t find the right shoe for their feet so they end up using children’s sizes or men’s boots. This is one of the problems that Merrell decided to tackle when they wanted to re-think hiking boots for women.
The company started from scratch and wanted to create a gender engineered boot. The Siren Q2 is the result of that design study. Merrell’s Kelly Ballou explained that the company’s designers built the Siren Q2 hiking boot with a narrower heel and a wider toe box, making it more comfortable and conforming to women’s foot shape and how they walk. While the Siren Q2 may fit better, Merrell didn’t take away any of the boot’s capabilities. It features a grippy outsole, a light-weight upper, and toe/heel protectors.
