I broke my ankle and leg and tore all the ligaments in my ankle..after 3 months in a wheelchair and boot, I purchased a pair of Merrell shoes, although not these exact shoes. I liked them so well, I wanted to purchase some for summer that I could wear with summer dresses. I bought the Lorelei, albeit 2 sizes larger than my former size. The Lorelei is supportive and cushioned, very comfortable. I have problems standing as the bottom of my foot is still sore and the swelling is still a problem but the Lorelei accommodates all of that. In addition it is very stylish and the khaki color goes great with summer clothes, even dresses. I cannot wear any other shoes right now, so I bought 3 pair of Merrell and I am thinking I might give away all my other shoes. Thank you Merrell for making something that can fit people with injuries! Ahhh! My feet feel great!
