ECCO Shoes Giveaway

A month or so ago I noticed a brisk edge to the air about my feet.
I rummaged through the boxes looking for last year's boots. 
I was a bit disappointed in my scruffy boots; that hurt the soles of my feet after less an hour in them.
Hardly a day went past ...when I got a surprise email.

Another review ~ with a difference . 
Of course , I jumped at the chance to review ECCO shoes new Autumn/Winter collection.

This one was purely for me to enjoy (I'm sharing the opportunity for one of you to own a pair too.) 
ECCO are an independently family owned Scandinavian company, launched in 1970's. From one man to 4000 sales locations (over 800 'ECCO' branded) in 90 countries.

Their principle philosophy is FORM  FOLLOWS  FUNCTION.
Their shoes are designed to follow the foot with quality, style and comfort that speaks for itself ...

250 million pairs of
shoes have walked the earth since 1963.

"We do things our own way".
How ? you might ask !

"They manage the entire production process from cow to consumer" 
They don't outsource unlike other manufacturers.

Starting with their own tanneries, ECCO own all stages of production worldwide (with 15,000 employees) ; the factories- right down to even owning their own ECCO branded shoe stores. (They are also sold in world's leading retailers).

I was interested to note though my boots were made in Indonesia, ECCO abides by a code of conduct including respect for defined human rights; religious freedom and UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

It's ECCO's own technology, with ECCO designers who produce the collections , with an unheralded passion to make people happy. 

They have shoes to suit everyone in the family too. Shoes for every occasion , formal, casual/outdoor, kids, men's and of course women's shoes in all styles. 

I've been wearing my boots for over a week and they are seriously the most comfortable boots or shoes I've ever owned.

"We believe in making shoes that are as comfortable to the eye as they are to the foot"

Believe me when I say my boots are 'beautiful'. 
I love my ECCO Boots .
Yes, I wear them everywhere. So far just with my denim jeans.

(my husband chopped my head off)
 They withstood the rigors of the farm.  (I could just see the ECCO logo imprint- stamped in my footprint)
(of course I told my girls they didn't have to worry because ECCO don't manufacture in Australia ;) .

I haven't tried them with a skirt or dress yet -I will when I go shopping.
(PR people if you are looking, I'm open to reviewing a new winter wardrobe)


My boots - Sensata ~  have a slight flare at the calf ; so they could fit under / over jeans or trouser pants (or dare I say over leggings) but I prefer to wear them out because they are so pleasing to the eye. I've had a few comments and admiring looks.

It's hard to explain how the Shoe fairy delivered them to me :)

The leather is soft & lovely, the stitching detail is simple but elegant with a small decorative buckle on the side. The non-leather soles have a slightly raised heel , which is fully enclosed , solid and very sturdy. The boots fit my feet like a glove. They weren't slippery in the rain either like some boot soles. Warm but lightweight too.
(Tip : I waterproofed & leather protected mine immediately)

I have visited an ECCO store and the customer service is outstanding. 
PS : ECCO also have a stunning range of fashion handbags too.

I know you, too, want to experience the mixture of innovative comfort and style that sets ECCO shoes apart from any other. 

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.

With your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet, 
you’re too smart to go down a not-so-good street.

So be sure when you step. Step with care and great tact 
and remember that Life’s a Great Balancing Act. 
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot with your left.

Today is your day!
Your chance is waiting.
So…get on your way!
