Long time Rockport fan switched over to Ecco !
on November 24, 2013
~ Update 28th June 2016. 2 years and 6 months later, still going on - sole looks great. Very comfortable and wearing it almost daily.
I have been a long time user of Rockport shoes for the last 12 years - The Rockport shoes simply used to be very rugged and extremely comfortable shoes, until the last 2-3 years when their quality started going down - particularly the soles.
I recently got on to a travelling job and on my travel to India - where it was raining almost raining on a daily basis - the rockport shoes was slipping on the granite stones layed as walkway - it was so dangerous that I feared slipping and falling down any moment.
Then, after some research I bought 2 shoes - the hush puppies and Ecco shoes.
After 4 months of use - I can tell that Ecco shoes are superior in each aspect over the Rockport or the Hush puppies. Compared to the hush puppies - these are very comfortable, I sometimes takes 2-3 mile walk in these shoes and hardly cause any discomfort on my feet/legs.
I have worn in rain, sun on different kinds of flooring - granite, marble, vitrified, ceramic and it never slips and always the most comfortable shoes to wear. Right now, I have the rust color and need to get myself a black colored shoes.
