they are shaped like a fat butter knife instead of somewhat symmetric
on January 20, 2015
I have had 1 other pair of Ecco's. I was looking for something similar. Since I do not know the model name of the other, I will write this review independently, but I attached a photo for comparison.
The BIOM Grip Urbaneering model has a number of issues, and I will be returning the shoe because of them. First, the red is not a bright red as you may think from the photos. Second, they are shaped like a fat butter knife instead of somewhat symmetric, which is not very apparent from Amazon's photos. One may like this, as it conforms to the shape of a foot slightly better, but it looks very strange. My old Ecco's were like this but for some reason it is more pronounced in the toe on these. Third, the arch support is more of a ball in the middle than a bar, whereas most shoes have a bar shape. This is the biggest issue for me. Finally, they run quite big. To find my fit, I would have to go to a number size I haven't had since I was 11 years old.
