I have been wearing these for 3 years now. I just bought a new pair today. They give me incredible support, and at the same time, incredible comfort. I have often had problems getting shoes that are comfortable for my feet, but with these shoes, I never have had any problems with comfort. I usaully wear a size 8, but in this shoe, the size 9 was the size that fit best. I use them for all day wear, including for my 3 mile walks. My only complaint is that the shoes outlast the laces. The laces on my 3 year old shoes are just about to break but the shoes themselves are still good. The only place i have found lace replacements is online, but the shipping for one pair of laces was more than the laces themselves, and I have not been able to find the exact color. Merrell, do you have replacement laces for the Siren Sport 2 hiking shoe in the mocha/berry color? I do not want to throw away perfecttly good shoes just because the lace broke. I thank you ahead of time for your reponse. If you were to include an extra pair of laces in the shoe box when people originally buy the shoes, this problem could be reolved for everyone who purchases Merrell shoes.
