Ecco Shoes Rip-Off Continues

ecco-ripoff

Followers of this blog may recall my post 2 years ago concerning quality problems with expensive shoes made by Danish manufacturer Ecco.

Unfortunately I bought 4 pairs of premium priced shoes before I realised that the soles fall apart if you don’t wear them regularly. Since my last post a pair of golf shoes has fallen apart whilst I was playing the 17th at Palmares and last week we were out with a friend when the sole on his shoes came to pieces in a restaurant. To his great embarrassment he left a trail of rubber throughout the restaurant and had to ask for plastic bags to cover his feet as it was raining outside.

It was fortunate that he did not have to walk home.

I was similarly lucky that the soles of my £100+ golf shoes disintegrated on the 17th hole so I only had to hobble one more hole.

Where are Trading Standards? What price the EU’s CE mark?

I’m afraid it will have to be down to People Power.

Boycott Ecco and tell your friends!

    Thanks for your article. Googling ‘Ecco shoes fall apart’ brought me here! I was given two pairs of Ecco shoes that a relative had bought, tried on at home, stored, then passed to me. I didn’t wear one until several months later and the other pair 7 months later and then intermittently. This second pair is suddenly cracking along the soles, while the uppers remain fine. Of course, not having a receipt means they’re impossible to return. Researching ‘disintegrating soles’ was an eye-opener. And Ecco aren’t the only ones. It’s happened with Clarks and Hotter shoes as well.
