The Merrell Siren Sport GTX: My Future “IT” Trail Shoe

I was on one of those weekend home tasks, trying to fix/arrange the corner of our room where I keep my running shoes, when hubby asked me a question nonchalantly – “With all those running shoes, I bet you won’t think of adding one really soon, right?”

“As a matter of fact, I do. I need a trail shoe”. His question is actually spot on to what have been at that time going on in my mind. With all the running shoes in my shoe closet, the only trail shoe I have needs to be replaced already.

In my search for that most coveted trail shoe, I have listed my requirements:

  • should be both functional as a trail running shoe or a mountain biking shoe
  • should be light weight (as light a trail running shoe can be)
  • needs to have a waterproof but breathable upper (some trail shoe doesn’t provide much comfort that is needed for warmer climates)
  • has to provide good cushioning (for someone with Plantar Fasciitis, this is a must!)
  • soles needs to have a good grip
  • good looking shoe not a must but definitely a plus
  • not be too expensive

And so, search the web I did, to try to find one that will conform to the requirements I listed. I started with the brand that I am most familiar and comfortable with: MERRELL. As always, I was not disappointed because I found one that might be the “IT trail shoe” for me: the Merrell Siren Sport GTX SS11

Review-Merrell-Siren-Sport-Gore-Tex-XCR-Shoes

According to the website, http://www.merrell.com, the following are the features of the said Merrell Trail shoe:

UPPER/LINING

blue

  • Strobel construction offers flexibility and comfort
  • Synthetic leather and mesh upper
  • Bellows tongue keeps debris out
  • GORE-TEX® Extended Comfort Footwear lining keeps feet dry and comfortable
  • Lining treated with Aegis® antimicrobial solution
  • Ortholite® anatomical footbed

MIDSOLE/OUTSOLE

sole

  • Molded nylon arch shank
  • QForm® Comfort midsole provides specific stride-sequenced cushioning for women
  • Merrell® Air Cushion in the heel absorbs shock and adds stability
  • 5mm Sole lug depth
  • Vibram® Siren Song Sole/TC5+ Rubber
  • Weight: 1 lb. 5 ozs. (326g)

The Siren Sport, seems to be a goodie – one that has covered the basics I need and more! It is light weight but doesn’t sacrifice on providing a high level of protection and support in the soles – with Vibram, QForm and Ortholite taking prominence in the construction of the shoe.

In the looks department, well it isn’t green (my favorite color!), but it definitely looks better than most trail shoes I have seen.

I am betting that aside from being a good trail shoe for running and mountain biking, this model will really be perfect for comfortable hiking.

I am truly excited to get my hands, (errr feet!) on a pair to try out and eventually purchase. But wait! Isn’t it Christmas in just a number of days? Someone whom I remember asking me about shoe purchases earlier might be able to read this and well, you know… 

Note: The Merrell Siren Sport GTX S11 is available online through http://www.springfield-camping.co.uk/ and locally at Merrell Concept stores and department stores nationwide.

O+ Bench + Joseph Marco’s New Adventure

IMG_3858

Hubby and I were invited just recently to the  O+ Smart Phone and Bench Launch cum Fashion Show. The event is not in any way related to running and/or mtbiking but we went there anyway thinking that it will be nice to be able to sometimes try on new things. 🙂

IMG_7143

ON THE GO. In between shoots for magazines and the television, Joseph Marco goes places with the newest from O+.

IMG_4093

The event showcased the exciting features of the O+ Smart Phone which has celebrity Joseph Marco as its endorser.  Afterwards, a Bench fashion design competition was held. Truly an exciting event to cap our weekend.

Here is the official press release, read on! 

O+ Bench + Joseph Marco’s New Adventure

8.5 android_1

SLEEK AND LIMITLESS. O+ keeps tech-savvy buyers excited with the entry of its 8.5 Android.

As the two ever-changing worlds of fashion and technology have grown more competitive than ever, we have come to realize that the key is, “keep up or be left behind.” Interlinking individuals through the power of mobile technology has tremendously become more of a need than a statement of luxury, similar to the case of fashion where trends come and go and modern consumers are always on the prowl for the next big thing.

The two are undoubtedly united by key elements to thrive: innovation and democracy. With constant reinvention remaining as the driving force of these worlds’ operations, the clamoring market has been granted access to their needs and wants.

Fashion, today, has been accessed not just by the chosen few, and technology has paved the way to an interconnected way of living. And so, what better way to celebrate limitless possibilities than to meld these worlds into one.

Bound by the common thread of pushing for endless possibilities, Bench/, in its silver year, ushers in a seamless marriage of talent and vision with O+, the US-born Android mobile technology brand.

IMG_6792

DOUBLE TAKE. Dual sim and dual camera, the new 8.5 Android is armed and ready

Enjoying 25 years of dominance in the market of fashion faithful, Bench/ has tremendously undergone evolution along with its clout of Filipino fashion lovers. The retail giant has cemented a name that has bridged markets of varying social brackets without compromising its design stamp and persona.

On the other hand, O+’s Android series has recently broken ground in local shores. Work and play come hand in hand in its lineup of smart phones and tablets. Aiming to make a dent in the tech-savvy market, O+ brings in revolutionary partners for the young and young-at-heart who are always on the go.

And one with O+’s vision of limitless possibilities, through the revolutionary Air Shuffle technology, today’s Android brings us to greater heights by allowing swifter navigation using the unique motion sensor that allows users to easily switch FM radio stations, browse stored photos and music with one swoosh of the wrist, even capture Instagram-worthy moments without the need to touch the capture button.

IMG_7210

THE PERFECT FIT. Browse photos and take pictures with just one swoosh of the wrist through the Air Shuffle technology.

In this unique collaboration, O+’s young ideals mesh with the 25-year tradition of excellence and ingenuity established by Bench/.

With the guiding principle of sharing without limits, on December 2, 2012 at the new Glorietta 1 Activity Center at 5:00pm, Bench/ and O+ cultivated a new-breed of Filipino fashionistas by highlighting unsung heroes in the world of fashion—the stylists.

IMG_6879

PICTURE-PERFECT. Enjoy capturing Instagram-worthy moments and navigating the latest Tweet updates with O+’s 4” capacitive multi-touch screen.

A first in the country, invited were six celebrity stylists, Sidney Yap, Adrian Concepcion, Ton Lao, Myrrh Lao To, Edlene Cabral, and Kate Paras, who competed in an exemplary display of creativity, vision, and technique. Each stylist headed a team of make up artists and hair experts to produce five (5) coherently-styled looks fusing elements derived from Bench/ and O+. Each collection were judged on creativity, originality, and relevance to the theme. Judges to the competition are esteemed names in fashion and entertainment: top designers Randy Ortiz and JC Buendia, Manila Bulletin’s Liza Ilarde, Preview’s Vince Uy, Philippine Daily Inquirer’s JJ San Juan, Philippine Star’s Christopher De Venecia PMAP President Phoemela Barranda, and Bench endorser Joseph Marco.

IMG_4160 IMG_3891

Fashion and technology displayed an exemplary union with Bench and O+ pushing for going beyond the ordinary. Coinciding with the competition, the biggest supersale on fashion and technology was also be mounted by Bench and O+ at the new Glorietta Activity Center from 1PM-9PM

The CORPS Movement Foundation offers different programs such as: Anti-Drug Campaigns, Values Enhancement Program, Health and Wellness Advocacies, Workshops on Strengthening Family Relationships, among others.
