These are cute shoes but they have no arch support. Because I need to wear a shoe with support, I had to return them. I can't wait until this "minimalist" shoe fad has run its course!

Love Merrells and have worn them for several years. But I have never worn this style before. The elastic in the heel is very painful. And I do mean painful. I couldn't tell how the size was because of how much they hurt.

I love these shoes. They are extremely comfortable and easy to get on and off because of the zipper. The bright color is cheerful. They seem to fit better than other casual sneakers I have purchased in the past.

I love this shoe. I'm a big fan of the Lorelei Zips, and so I tried these, too. The fit is a little different, and the stitching across the toes took some getting used to, but it's not uncomfortable. I have a bunion, so finding comfortable shoes can be a task, but Merrell Lorelei shoes are the best I've found. The arch support is average, so you'll need an insert if you need more support, but you can easily remove the one already there to do so. Overall, it's a highly adaptable and stylish shoe. I wear them to work all the time.

So happy with these shoes, as I always am with Merrell. Was looking for a pair of sneakers that weren't as clunky as running shoes to wear with shorts or capris and these fit the bill. Knocked off one comfort star because the heel rubs a bit at the top because of the way they bend in, still breaking them in. Would definitely buy them again.

This shoe has the usual typical quality and comfort of a Merrell that one would expect. The footbed is cushioned but the arch is minimal. I love the slightly stretchy body material and the zipper. The zipper is a little tight at my instep but I hope that will stretch out with wear. I ordered my usual 38 European - 7.5 M US and they fit perfectly (except a little tight at the instep). I ordered the purple and love the color.

I love this shoe! Mostly for the style then comfort. So cute and stylish - I've received tons of compliments. Like other reviews suggest, the back does rub a lot if you don't wear socks. There isn't any arch support, but I've put in my own inserts and that's fixed that problem.

So disappointed! I love the look of these shoes, and they fit me as though they were custom made for my foot...but after five minutes of wearing them in the house it felt like razors were trying to slice through the tendon just above my heel. Have to send them back.

Styling is just on the okay/more conservative side. There is no arch support whatsoever. If the styling were bit edgier and there was some arch support, it would be perfect.

I already have 2 pairs of this style Merrell shoe which are old and worn. Needed new ones, but the fit is different - too narrow in toe area. Not your fault. Same wonderful customer service. Wonderful.

I bought these in hopes of replacing an old pair of Merrell slip-ons that I had for several years. After less than two months the yellow tread on the bottom of the shoe began pealing off. The yellow tread now hangs off shoe which catches on everything causing me to trip. I love my other Merrells but was extremely disappointed in the quality of this shoe for the price I paid.

Merrell is one of my favorite brands but the Lorelei Link is not as comfortable as the other Merrell styles. I am returning these shoes because they felt half a size smaller than marked.

Shoe felt too cheap for the price and even walking around the house to test them out, I could tell the heel part rubbed too much and would cause blisters. They were comfortable, but I can't see paying so much for a low quality shoe... Returned them, for free because Zappos is awesome.

This is the first pair of Merrell footwear that has not perfectly fit me. I own several other Merrell products. I wear a size 8.5; these fit the arch but were very short and cramped in the toe. Sadly I am returning them.

I have 2 pairs of the Lorelei and loved them, but the "link" did nothing for me. I felt, like another reviewer, that the back may give me a blister but thought it just needed to be broken in, so I kept them. The zipper hurt my arch, so I unzipped it a little. Almost 1/2 way down to make it comfortable and the back does pinch. The size felt small. After wearing them for a week or two off and on, I realized it was not going to get better. They will be going in the Goodwill pile.

I could not even zip these up over my high-arched, high-instep foot. And the zipper toggle was pressed painfully into the top of my foot. Oh well, they were cute.

I am more than willing to pay money for good shoes, but these are definitely not worth this price in my opinion. I have worn Merrell shoes for years, and have found them to be one of the most comfortable brands out there for my feet. I just do not think these live up to the name. They are made out of a very flimsy canvas upper (like Converse) combined with a small amount of suede and they have no support at all. The back also dug into my heel and would have caused a blister with continued wear. I cannot believe they cost just as much as sturdy, leather or suede Merrells. They were cute, but I sent them back.
