For complete comfort whilst traversing the trails the Merrell Siren Sport Gore-Tex Women's Walking Shoes delivers a solid and comfortable ride thanks to its GORE-TEX lining and midsole technology.
A Siren that sounds the alarm when the weather comes up bad, and keeps pace with the worst it can throw out. Mesh upper backed by GORE-TEX membrane has the highest level of breathability while being completely waterproof without any unwanted bulk-up. Narrow gauge webbing and synthetic leather strapping provide perfect support. Anchoring Lacing perfectly lock the shoe in a place while belows tongue delivers the maximum protection from unwanted debris and mud.
Underneath it's all about cushioning and alignment, with proprietary Merrell Air Cushion located in the heel matched to QForm stride-centering.
The outsole is designed for the harshest terrains. The Vibram Sole Rubber provides the maximum grip for the variety of terrains. Rubber Toe cap gives the ultimate support for toes while multi directional 5mm lugs enhance the grip and traction.
WHAT IS Q ANGLE?
One of the reasons women move differently is something called a Q-Angle (Referring to the Quadriceps' angle), which is the angle between the hip and the knee. Due to wider hips and a lower center of gravity, a women's Q-angle is more pronounced. This stretches the inner ligaments and creates a cycle of supination and pronation.
A CYCLE OF DISCOMFORT
Because of this pronounced Q-Angle, the initial strike of the heel tends to be concentrated on the outside of the foot (SUPINATION). Women attempt to compensate for this motion by directing the weight towards the inside of the foot (PRONATION). This motion creates pressure so women will alter their stride again and place their weight on the outside of the foot. This cycle of altering the natural pattern of movement ultimately results in discomfort and pain.
By Combining properly sequenced cushioning with a supportive and naturally aligning midsole, Merrell has created a technology that is 100% tailored to women and the way they move.
