I was a fan of Merrell shoes when they made my size 12. However, they seem to have discontinued women’s size 12 so I thought 11 might fit... no good, but almost... enough that I took them to a shoemaker to stretch for me. I've worn them but not very comfortable. Hey Merrell, please bring back women’s size 12!!! I can't be the only one!

I bought these when Merrell unaccountably discontinued their very popular previous model with the zipper (Arabesque?). It's a little disappointing, but still the best of breed. Lorelei is cut a little narrower than previously, which is too bad, since Merrells were the brand I could count on to fit my wide foot. Also, it looks more like a sport shoe, with the contrast stitching and sole. One of the things I loved about the previous model was that because it was a solid color and suede and with a nice, not-clunky profile, I could wear it with a variety of casual clothes. These are more limiting because of the look, but still good for running errands and looking a little more polished than athletic shoes.

I cannot speak highly enough of these shoes. I have a bunion, and so it can be hard to find comfortable, cute shoes. These shoes are both, and I love them!

These look great with jeans. I ordered my size but needed to return them for a half-size smaller. The smaller size is a perfect fit!

This is my 3rd pair of Merrells. They are lightweight and fit perfectly. I put them on the first day and wore them for 9 hours and my feet felt great. I am a big Merrells fan and these do not disappoint.

I normally wear size 8 - 8.5. In the Jungle Moc by Merrell, I'm an 8, but I'm an 8.5 in this shoe so you may want to order a half size up! The zipper is not very easy to manage, but that's the only negative thing. Comfortable, casual shoe for work!

Got these in leather black, and they're so cute and svelte. I wanted to love them (I've heard such great things about Merrells) but just walking around my house, the back dug into my heel so much that they were painful after 15 minutes. Had to send back.

Extremely comfortable and pretty cute, too! Re: Sizing...in non-athletic shoes, I usually wear a 5.5, but the 6 fits me. Perhaps a 1/2 size larger than your normal shoe will fit better? Or I just have goofy, inscrutable feet.

The zipper is very difficult to pull up and the profile is a bit too duck-footed for my taste. I thought it would look sleeker on the foot. I'm returning them. Very comfortable though!

Lorelei's are my go-to shoe for everyday wear. These shoes look good and are super comfortable. I was just about to order my fifth pair (yes, 5th) and am disappointed to find that Merrell has apparently discontinued size 11 in the leather version. I have the mesh kind but wanted new leather ones.

I read the reviews before I purchased and decided to order a size 7 when I usually buy a 7 1/2. This was a good choice and they fit perfectly. I love them! They feel so good and are light, stylish, and easy to remove. I travel a lot and plan to wear them to help make the TSA experience better. Delivery and packaging were terrific. I can't wait to get another pair for summer!

I love these shoes. Comfortable with support but not heavy or confining. Shoes run a little large, but not as much as a half size. Fine with regular type socks.

This shoe fits great! I wear 11 wide and even though it is not technically a wide it fits beautifully. I wore it for walking in New York City for miles and miles and it was very comfortable.

I absolutely love these shoes. I have bunions and high arches, so it's almost impossible to find any shoes that are comfortable for me. These shoes do it. They're a little heavy, so they're not for running or other such activities, but I wear them all day, every day at work. I have these in 5 colors. You can't go wrong with these shoes.

I have been going around and around looking for the perfect everyday sporty black shoe that doesn't look too "nurse-y" or too much like a skate sneaker. Why didn't I just order these the first time? They are gloriously comfortable, fit my orthotics effortlessly, and are perfect for airline travel since they're so easy to take on and off. They come in plain black, but the white stitching keeps it from looking like a neoprene water sock or a nurse shoe. I think I'll be living in these for the foreseeable future.

The shoe felt small at my usual size, so ordered a half size larger. The shoe stretched out, and is now too big.

I'm an extremely active and energetic person and these shoes fit my personality perfectly, not to mention my feet. I could wear these all day - or even for exercising in. I first bought the tan colored ones and loved them so much I bought these for the colder temps. I really loves the soles!

I love these shoes. They are a little tight on me, so a little hard to zip up. But I have a wide foot, and a high vamp, so that was not unexpected. But, they are still really comfortable and I can wear them all day. Over time I'm hoping the shoe will loosen up a bit so the zipper will go up easier. Merrell's always give me good support, keep my feet stable and keep me walking all day.

I got few Merrell styles for my mom & this is the only one she really liked in terms of style & comfort. Knowing how picky she is, I highly recommend them as a quality pair of walking shoes. I got half a size larger than her usual, as I found with some Merrell styles it's needed.

Great walking shoes with no break-in time required. Good overall support, and they're cute enough to wear with work clothes.

Someone commented that the zipper is a bit hard to pull up - for me also (maybe arch is a bit high). But once it's up and you wear them, that is gone in a day or two. Feel "like a glove" and great for walking. A nice compromise for comfort/walking - but not a sneaker type shoe! Really like it.

Shoes are very comfortable and fit true-to-size. I do agree with some of the other reviewers that the zipper is hard to open and close.

Really like this shoe. Comfortable and casual. The only complaint I have is that I do not like the shoe design as much as the last 'model', in same brown suede, that looked a little more cool! More steam lined and dressier! Wish I'd bought extra pairs in those.

A little different than the past ones, toe shape is different. I like the style overall and comfort except the back rubs against my achilles heel and caused a blister. If it wasn't for that, I would be much happier and wear them all the time.
