Rated 4 out of 5 by Sazzia Great dayhiker but order a size up...
I'm a size 8 (US) in all regular shoes, but I'm familiar with Merrell and knew to order a half-size up since the brand typically runs a little small. Even ordering an 8.5 I've run into problems in the toebox, so I am returning for a size 9. Otherwise the shoe is terrific - excellent grip and stability, no blisters and is super comfortable...once you figure out the right size for your feet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Avidhiker29 Broke first day of my honeymoon.
Have worn this particular shoe in the past with no problems. However, bought this pair to hike in Yosemite on my honeymoon and they broke the second day wearing them. The islet broke off and therefore the laces could not be tied properly. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JPE I love Merrell shoes!
I've had these shoes before and love them. They have great arch support, especially since my feet pronate. These shoes can handle rugged terrain as well as walking paths.
I'm so glad LLBean is carrying them. Please carry more Merrell shoes in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Katherine21 Merrrell Siren Sport 2 Hikers
Love these hikers! Put them on the day I got them and went for a hike. Very comfortable and they look great! I work with children and like that my feel stay cool in these. The kids are all commenting on how nice my hikers are!
Not only are my feet happy, I am cool too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by cdhardy Great shoe for day hikers
As a day hiker, I wanted a shoe I could feel comfortable walking in for hours. These turned out to be a great choice - They have been comfortable since I took them out of the box. I wore them around the house to get used to them, then went on a short hike and am planning a longer hike soon. They are so comfortable that I would consider wearing them every day, whether I was hiking or not.
I appreciated the US to European size chart on the website- it helped me to be sure I was getting the correct size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PWCLover Comfortable shoes
I love these shoes. These are my third pair. I can wear them right out of the box and have never had any issues [e.g. blisters, callouses] from them. They are lightweight and comfortable. I use them for dogwalking, not hiking, and I find they are a solid, durable shoe. My only comment is that they run small. I normally wear a size 6 and I have to buy these in a size 7 because the 6.5 feels tight across the toes, even though the length would be OK. As a result, I need to wear a hiking sock and a thinner cotton sock with them to ensure my foot is secure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ewolfe Good buy
After reading other reviews I felt this would be the shoe for me as I have a very narrow heel but need some width in the toe area. I ordered a half size up since everyone indicated they ran small. Glad I did, but the fit is perfect. They are not only comfortable but VERY warm. Even though they are a low-top shoe my feet haven't gotten cold once. Only problem is I cannot walk in deep snow in them. But they have an excellent grip and have held me steady in some pretty bad conditions. Glad I bought them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeighL I've walked for miles in my Merrells
I walk everywhere and, accordingly, my shoes take a lot of abuse. I've never ordered shoes online or by mail, needed a new pair fast and so felt safest sticking with what I know. This is my third pair of Merrells and my second of this particular model, which I've come back to after buying the waterproof ones last year. They fit comfortably, right out of the box, with no real break-in period (which I did experience a bit with the waterproof pair). I've been getting about a year out of Merrell Siren Sports, and again, that's with daily wear.
I'm not generally a brand loyal person but have been so happy with Merrell and their Siren Sport line that I do recommend them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by suzr great shoe but...
I loved this shoe though am sending it back.
It is more suitable for a trail surface and not a hardscape surface like asphalt or cement--I was hoping it would work for both.
The merrell soles last forever and that was why I chose these however the walking on a hard surface was not comfortable.
Also my toe tends to wear a hole in the toe of shoes without extra protection and this shoe has that toe shield.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eselbe Really like these shoes
I bought these shoes for an upcoming hike as I didn't have anything suitable. I assumed some break-in period as I have a troublesome bunion and these are stiffer than shoes I normally wear. It did take about 3 days and thicker than normal socks, but now the shoes are good to go. If I wouldn't have this issue, there would have been no break-in period. These really look good - love the colors. I'll be ordering another pair.
