Perfect untill the soles fell off
on November 1, 2014
These shoes are some of the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. They required almost no break in. I wore them only occasionally for a few months when they matched whatever I was wearing that day. I went traveling for a month and needed to pack light so I took only one pair of shoes. I naturally chose the most comfortable (and good looking) pair. I walked a fair bit during my travels, however around the middle of the third week the soles began to separate from the leather upper. As soon as this happened the shoes also lost their waterproof ability as the water could simple run in over the sole. This was unfortunate as it rained a lot where I was at the time and a huge part of my deciding to spend this kind of money on these shoes were the claims of waterproofness.
Needless to say I am highly disappointed in this product. Also since it is beyond the return policy I am stuck with these defective shoes. I will also say that the soles show almost no wear and the uppers are still in near perfect condition. I would expect any shoes I purchase to outlast three weeks of walking, and expensive Ecco shoes should be no exception.
