These are my favourite shoes ever! I bought a few pairs and have been wearing them almost constantly for the last couple of years. Extremely comfortable, breathable, fit orthotic and unobtrusive enough to get away wearing to work. Unfortunately I have been informed that Merrell is not making them anymore, because people are bored and want something else. Not true! Dear Merrell please do not phase Lorelei Zip out, they are great shoes and people love them!
