I have owned many pairs of Eccos, and I always loved them. They were my favorite shoes, but no longer. One pair I have had for about 5 years finally needed to be replaced. I purchased the exact same style on Amazon because I was very confident in buying another pair of Ecco shoes without trying them on. When the new pair arrived it was very obvious that Ecco had made some changes, and the quality was much lower. The old pair had all leather lining inside the shoe. The new pair has all cloth. On the old pair, the top part of the sole was leather and was sewn onto the shoe. The new pair is all plastic with fake plastic sewing. The old pair had a multi-part shock point in the heel with a yellow piece in the middle. The new pair has something that looked like the shock point, but was really just a detail molded into the plastic. And most importantly, the new pair is horribly uncomfortable to the point that they caused me excruciating pain. I took them to a tradeshow and after 3 days I was sorry I ever bought these shoes. I had huge blisters on the soles of both feet and on my heels, and my feet and ankles hurt for days after the tradeshow. I kept them because I was having a hard time believing that my beloved Eccos were no longer worth buying. One month after the tradeshow, when the memory of the pain had faded, I decided to try them again in case it was something I had done. Once again they hurt my feet and I couldn't continue wearing them. I will never buy another pair of Ecco shoes after this experience, which makes me sad because the old Eccos were the best shoes I ever owned. I would forgive them and buy them again if they would return to the quality they had in the past. I would not suggest these shoes to any of my friends now.

just got these so can't really comment on durability, which is probably 1 of 2 most important factors when spending this much on shoes. I can say they are comfortable. Just wanted to give my input on the size. I usually wear a size 10 US. when you look at sizing charts, 10 US translates to a 44. I even went into a high end shoe store recently and they had this machine/computer that you stand on, and it tells you your size, it said 44 exactly. Whenever I've tried on 44 Ecco's in the past though, they've always been too big. So, I ordered these in 43 and they are definitely not too small. I would say they fit perfectly, but i could imagine them being even a little bit smaller (however I gotta believe that 42 would be too small). Point being, if you wear a 10 US, I suggest 43, or maybe even going to a shoe store first and seeing how a 42 fits - which I will probably do when i have a chance.

Update - 6 months: Still extremely comfortable. Still in good shape. One design complaint - the way the sole extends around the outside of the shoe, where the leather meats the sole all the way around it tends to collect huge amounts of pollen/dirt/dust. Every time I pick up my kid from day care and just walk into the backyard this happens and needs to be washed out with a cloth. Maybe this is normal, but I've never noticed this happening on my other shoes. I've also never had such expensive shoes, so I don't know.

Update - 2 years: Still great. Still holding up well.

No issues with Amazon price or delivery. Shoes looked and felt as expected. However, the quality is not as I expected or experienced with previous Ecco shoes. The polish/color is already scratched off of the front toe and forefoot sides and I don't perform and strenuous activity in them. Very disappointed and will reconsider purchasing Ecco in the future.

I was a little leery buying fairly expensive shoes without trying them on, but I'm glad I did. I had heard good things about Ecco shoes, and I was not worried about their quality. But I have really wide feet, and usually take a wider width (like EEE). The Ecco models on Amazon did not offer wide widths, so I gambled by going up a size, and it was a good gamble. The fact that Amazon had free returns helped me make up my mind. This pair of shoes runs $140 at Macy's about 45 minutes from my house. They sold on Amazon for $120 plus shipping ($132 total), so it worked out. If the shoes had not fit well, at least I knew I could return them for free, and Amazon would refund the total $132.

Anyway, I've had the shoes only a week, so I can't rate them on durability, but as I mentioned, the Ecco brand is known for their durability, so I'm expecting them to last. The leather is nice quality and feel. The insides are nice with leather inserts. Also, the shoes are much lighter than I expected, which is an added bonus. Also very comfortable. Glad I made the leap.

EDIT / UPDATE August 2014: Fast Forward 18 months from my review above - I have been wearing these ECCO shoes now every other day for work, and I continue to be impressed how they are holding up. The shoe leather has softened a bit (that's a good thing...), but they still shine up very well, and the soles hardly show any wear. I can easily see these shoes lasting another 3-4 years at this rate.

EDIT/UPDATE March 2015: These shoes are still every bit as awesome as ever. I do have one gripe though.... I liked these black Lace-Ups so much I ordered the identical size/model in Brown. I am pretty unhappy with the brown shoes. (I reduced my overall rating from 5 stars to 4) The quality is still there, but they fit completely differently - the left shoe is tighter than the right, and both are tighter than the black. I have tried loosening the laces as much as I can, but across the instep they almost squeeze - I guess this is one of the risks of buying shoes on-line. The black version fit so perfectly, that when I got the brown version, and they were a little tight, I figured they maybe just needed to break in a little (the leather is not as supple/soft on the brown shoes as on the black). Well, almost 2 years later, they still have not "broken in", and I find myself making excuses for not wearing them. So there they sit, while I wear my Ecco Trac 6 GTX Moc (which I also love). Maybe someday I will try a different pair of Brown Eccos, but I can't afford to throw money out the window.....

Very stylish, high quality shoes at an excellant price. These are my second pair of ECCO shoes. They are light and comfortable and the soles seem almost indestructible.

I had been an eco fan. I bought this online and wish I would have bought from a store and tried this one on before buying. I figured the same size in an eco to what I wore previously would be fine but for some reason this show fit a little bigger than my previous pair of eco.
This shoe was a little more dressy than what I expected. I was trying to find one like my old pair that was more in between casual and dressy. I wore my previous pair for dressy occasions as well as casual but these I would not wear any more than for dressy occasions and I take them off as soon as I can. They do not offer me support like my other pair.
I will say, they are durable which is one thing I really like about Eco. My previous pair outlasted any pair of business shoe I had ever owned. I still like Eco but I think I would rather find what I want in a brick and mortar store to make sure I know what I'm getting in looks, in comfort and in size.

I bought these for my husband to wear to work. He said that they were very comfortable and didn't require any breaking in. We have purchased this brand previously and they seem to wear well.

Tried half a dozen similarly styled shoes, looking for something that looked good, and was comfortable to spend all day in on and off my feet.This is the one I kept. I've worn these for a week. Accommodated my custom orthotics, which many didn't. Back of ankle is high and soft enough to not irritate. Construction quality seems good. Slight ridge on top of sole at toe (molding artifact I presume) draws unnecessary attention to fact that it does have a rubber sole; seems like they could have located it elsewhere. Runs large; I normally wear a 10 M's US. 44 EU was too big.

If you can find Ecco shoes on sale they are worth the investment. I own 5 different pairs of Ecco shoes and they are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I have a 9.5 size foot and is slightly wide and these shoes fit perfectly. The additional bonus is the craftsmanship is excellent and these shoes last years with no wear on heels and the leather holds up as well.
