Major deterioation of the soles of Ecco Men's Seawalker Tie Oxford
on December 7, 2009
I own a couple of pair of Ecco shoes. The Seawalker Tie pair are about 4 years old and have spent most of the time sitting in my closet. I estimate that I've worn the shoes about 2 or 3 times a month on average. I really like the way they feel, good support for walking.
Last week, I selected these shoes to wear on a shopping trip to the mall. During the trip I felt something different on the bottom of the shoes and discovered that I had a large hole in the bottom of both shoes. After returning home, removing the shoes and inspecting them, I discovered large cracks in the soles, from heal to toe, with a large section of missing sole in middle of both shoes.
I took pictures to show that the tops of the shoes still look good but the soles contain major deterioration. But amazon.com does not allow the posting of pictures - - just video??
Bottom line - I have really liked these shoes. And, I know every manufacturing company experiences an occasional quality problem, but the durability problems with the soles of the Ecco Men's Seawalker Tie was not what I expected from Ecco, even after 4 years.
