Photography by Rachel Bires
Notice anything different in this post?! Haha that is right, Tre is in it. If you are new here, Tre is my husband and he takes most of my blog photos. Obviously, for this post he was not able to but my good friend Rachel Bires was kind enough to do them for us. She’s a photographer and a traveler and her Instagram always gives me major inspos. She also shares the coolest spots in Chicago!
Tre & I had the opportunity to try out ECCO‘s Fall collection shoes. Initially, they reached out for a sponsored Instagram post. However, I wanted to be able to give you all a thorough ECCO shoes review (this blog post is not sponsored). If you know me and if you ask for my review, I will definitely give my honest thoughts.
We ordered our ECCO shoes through Zappos. I love ordering through Zappos because they quickly ship your shoes for free. Free shipping should always be a thing, don’t ya think? Unfortunately, not all online retailers think so… womp, womp. I believe we received our shoes in just a few days! If you are an Amazon prime member, all you need to do is sign in with your Amazon email address and password. Also, if you order your ECCO shoes through Zappos you will get all the Zappos perks like the 365 Return policy. That’s an impressive return policy. You pretty much have the whole year to return them!
About ECCO Shoes
ECCO is a world class shoe brand that focuses on creating shoes that have style and comfort. They focus on high quality materials (such as leather) and innovative technology to make sure they are comfortable to wear all day long. They’re one of the few shoe manufacturers that manages and owns every aspect of its leather, shoe production, and retail sales. Overall, their brand is motivated by the ethos of “Premium Leather + Innovative Comfort = Natural Motion“.
The colors of their shoes are inspired by nature. Therefore, you will notice they have lots of neutrals and earth tone colors and texture.
They have enhanced shoe engineering by using their FLUIDFORM™ Technology. This technology creates a shock-absorbing and resilient mold to the shoe and its footbed and overall protects and adds comfort to the foot.
Her ECCO Shoes
I am wearing the ECCO Shape Pointy Ballerina in the Bast color. I was immediately drawn to its sleek silhouette and pointed-toe style. For sure it is a chic looking shoe! I went for a casual style with these shoes, but I definitely think it would look great on with a midi dress or skirt.
The moment I slipped my feet into these shoes, it felt different. My feet already could feel the cushion. Feels like walking on clouds. I did a little happy dance because I am a big fan of mixing in style and comfort. As you can tell by these photos, we were walking around the city in them. My feet did not bother me at all. Not sure if you know this, but I recently got a new side effect from my cancer treatments and it affected my left foot. Basically, my left heel is always sore and feels like I have plantar fasciitis. It’s so annoying. Hence, why I’ve been spending more on shoes that are comfortable. Good news is after walking around the city in my flats, my left heel did not get worse. That’s a win for me.
As for sizing, these shoes fit true to size. Yes, even with pointed toe flats I got my usual size and did not have the urge to size up. The sizing is slightly different for ECCO. I usually wear 7.5 and I am wearing size 38, which is US size 7-7.5. This pair of shoes also comes in 2 other colors: black and night sky (grey blue color).
His ECCO Shoes
Tre is wearing the ECCO Soft 7 CVO Sneaker in the Marine color (it is a grey blue color). Let me tell you, Tre rarely buys shoes and rarely compliments shoes. When he received these sneakers, he instantly loved the look. Granted, he did pick it out when he ordered, but according to him it looks even better in person. In my opinion, I already saw that as a win haha.
Tre also liked that the sneakers looked dressier and he can wear them to work. He normally wears these chino pants. We tested them out after this shoot, and the sneakers look awesome with the chinos. The sneakers are made with leather but after walking all day in them, they didn’t look scuffed up.
As for comfort, Tre also agreed that he was comfortable in them all day. He has flat feet (no arch in them) and so he either has to wear orthotics in his shoes or have to find one with enough support. The fact that these sneakers were able to absorb the shock helped him a lot. Tre did not need to add orthotics to these sneakers.
Tre usually wears size 11 and got the size 45 (US Size 11-11.5). According to him, they fit well. The sneakers also come in Cocoa Brown and Stone color.
Overall Thoughts on ECCO Shoes
We are now big fans of ECCO shoes! We are so amazed by how comfortable they are. Even better that they have style! I know for me, I am going to be adding ECCO shoes as a trusted shoe brand. I’m already eyeing other pairs like these ankle boots. Aren’t they cute?! As for Tre, I know that once he says he likes something he will always go back to them. I bet you when he needs a new pair of shoes, he will use ECCO shoes or ask them for Christmas haha. I can see him wanting these boots or these dress shoes.
Have you tried ECCO shoes?
