Ecco Compliment - Great Running (Walking) Shoes
I always enjoy passing on information about products I have found that last, and, in this case, are very comfortable too.
I have been buying Ecco running shoes, that I also hike and walk in, for about 3-4 years now. They have never let me down. I also find they last until you are ready to replace them. I use mine almost every day, so I have to replace them every 3-4 months. I've never had one instance of them coming apart before that time frame and I put a lot of miles on them.
These shoes are very well padded, made well, and fit like a glove. If I can't feel a running/walking shoe when I have it on my feet, then I know I've found something great! No pinching, rubbing, nothing at all. I have bought the Ecco Performance RXP 3080 and also the RXP 3070. Both have served me well. Mine run about $120. May sound expensive, but that runs about $1 a day. My feet are important to me! If you don't use them constantly, they would probably last longer than mine do.
Additionally, in the past year, I've noticed they are making other shoes (flats) that I have tried and liked, also very comfortable and stylish. They have lasted well too.
I usually order from Zappos.com. You can order 2 sizes (or more) and return them--for free. I don't like hunting store-to-store, so I can usually get what I want and not go out shopping. Besides, the stores are usually out of my size (!) and they don't necessarily have what I'm looking for anyway.
