ECCO, Boots for Fall and Winter

ECCO began as a response to uncompromising footwear. More than 40 years ago in the small southern Jutland town of Bredebro, Denmark, Karl Toosbuy pioneered a revolution in footwear, choosing comfort over conformity. Tired of having his feet mold to his shoes, he charged that the foot should lead the shoe. A new type of footwear was born, crafted both by hand and “by heart”.

Sight – Available in black or grey leather. Light and breathable, it features a textile lining for extra cushioning and comfort. Super-soft inlay sole mounds to the shape of your feet providing additional support.

I don’t normally start a review with a company quote, but this one really hits home. It’s true that your feet lead you through life, and having quality footwear is key to that journey.

Recently I was sent a pair of ECCO boots for review, and I chose the Sight‘ Style. This was my first time trying this brand, and I have to admit – I was a little skeptical despite hearing great things from others. My doubt was only because boots are something that I generally need to break in. And, they are anything but comfortable, especially with the extra weight {can you tell I am a sandal person at heart?}.

What surprised me, and this is why I led this post with the company tagline – these boots are exactly what the tagline describes! No break in time, and comfort from the first step. And I didn’t just put them on for a quick jaunt to the store either. I put these ECCO boots under the ultimate test, by wearing them during our recent weekend getaway to Banff National Park. There was indeed a lot of walking and hiking {as well as shopping and dining} in those 2 days, and ECCO led me comfortably and fashionably the entire way!

The fit of my boots are perfect – no sliding of the heel in the boot, and they are lightweight despite being such a quality and warm boot. Impressed? I sure am! Since those first 2 days in Banff, I have worn my boots daily {thanks to Mother Nature deciding that Winter is well on its way!}. From shopping to playing outside at the park – my ECCO’s are there. So, no matter what task I have been doing, these fit into my usual {chaotic} life! As well, being a person that doesn’t much like to switch from summer to winter boots, this year I made the transition easier thanks to ECCO.

Now, onto the other delicious boots from ECCO! How about embracing Winter full force with these Siberia boots. I really like the fur with the splash of color in the detail.


And, nothing says Holiday Parties like these tall black boots names Rise! Thing is, more and more I see women wearing this type of boot all the time, not just on a special night out. So, if they were ECCO comfortable? You bet I would wear them all the time!

‘Rise’ – Leather and suede calf length boot. Added support comes from the textile lining giving extra cushioning. Moisture-absorbent system keeps air circulating a fresh feet.

Maybe you like more of a ‘hiker’ style of boot, allow me to suggest this one:

Altai – Available in white or brown yak leather with GORE-TEX and warm lining

And finally, if you work outdoors and need something to withstand the elements as much hold up under gruelling outdoor work – check these ‘Hill’ pair out:

Hill – Available in black, brown or grape leaf leather/textile with GORE-TEX. Warm lining and wool-covered insole keep feet cushioned and toasty. Waterproof and breathable for all terrain comfort

Not only specializing in fabulous boots, they are a one-stop-shop for the whole family looking for quality footwear. Quality and craftsmanship make their shoes famous and create loyal fans who prize their comfort and value. ECCO also has a great selection of handbags and accessories as well. So, when I say that ECCO makes a great gift for anyone, I mean it. There is something for anyone! Yet I labelled my ECCO feature as a gift for Mom because…
