I purchased a pair of Lorelei Zip a couple of months ago after trying on a friend's pair which fitted well even though I could tell they were a size too small to fit my orthotics. They were so comfortable and I liked the look of them because they didn't have an obvious label (unlike the big M on some other styles. I bought a size larger than my friend's pair. The shoes didn't need wearing in and I have hardly had them off my feet since. I have a slightly wide foot and need to wear orthotics having a bunion and after breaking my foot which limits what shoes I can wear. They are light, give me adequate support for most things and very comfortable. They are easy to slip on and off which I have to do frequently throughout the day because of my lifestyle. At first when I wore trousers the bottoms kept getting tucked in by the tabs as I walked. I cut the tabs off which solved the problem and now the shoes look good with a larger variety of clothes. I am just about to purchase another pair. PS I was very apprehensive about purchasing shoes online especially as I was really guessing the correct size. I spoke to a customer service officer who was so lovely and reassured me. When the shoes arrived the day after I ordered them, I was surprised and happy to see how easy it would have been if I needed to return them which of course I didn't.
