My Hubby's "AAAAHHH" Shoe
on July 3, 2015
My husband is an over-pronator and has some nasty flat feet. So, finding comfortable, supportive shoes is a problem. He wears the New Balance M928 with an orthodontic. It works well. But, for those "casual" activities that we enjoy, he wanted something different. Viola! The ECCO Biom Urbaneering. He found it here on Amazon and I got it. He read so many reviews, across the Internet and on Amazon that he figured this would be a great shoe for those times he needs to be casual in khakis. Amazon did a great job in packaging the shoes and the delivery was as we normally expect from Amazon. There was no damage to the shoes. Now, for the fit and the "aahs" that he was making when first wearing them.
The fit is perfect. ECCO does an excellent job. Since these were going to be his second pair of ECCOs, he knew what sizes to buy: The size for his feet. We don't understand why some folks are buying ½ size up or down or even a full size up or down. He wears a 12.5" shoe. These fit perfectly, with good room in the toe box. With and without the orthodontic. His heel is cupped very well with the design of the shoe. There is no slippage in that area, and anywhere for that matter in the shoe. The shoe insert was nicely done and he wore the shoes with it around the house for several hours without any difficulty. He does, however, prefer his orthodontic insert. The shoes are high enough to take the orthodontic without his feet rubbing.
The leather upper is wonderful. A bit stiff, out of the box, but with more wearing he expects it to be supple and even more comfortable. So, ore "aahs" coming. So, he's very pleased with the shoe quality. And, he ignored the slight bleeding of the red color.
One of the reviewers noted that the red interior bleeds onto their white socks. We concur. It wasn't much, but
