Ecco And The City

11th March 2016

When travelling or for everyday life, I love nothing more than a pair of comfy shoes especially when running around the city (metaphorically speaking). In the last few years there has been a rise in casual footwear aka trainers. What was once seen as totally dressed down attire is now a thing of the past and it’s become more acceptable to look smart when wearing a pair of sneakers. Alas I can’t help but welcome this trend with open arms. The black trainer is a shoe that I feel very close to my heart. But lets not be fooled, it’s not only the likes of the stans and nikes of this world that should get all the merit, as many other brands have really upped their game!

Meet ECCO, a global leader in innovative comfort footwear for men, ladies and kids, founded in Denmark in 1963. It is simply a case where comfort meets cool – Gone is the myth where if you require comfortable shoes you need to be un fashionable, on the contrary!

So while walking around the city I tested my beloved ‘Intrinsic Ladies’ from ECCO, of course the monochrome girl in me opted for a black pair. A case of a classic sneaker that is crafted from unique knitted textile and soft leather. Embracing the relaxed look that doesn’t compromise on comfort. It really felt like walking bare foot, as inside the inlay sole is specially designed to cushion the foot along its full length and to allow natural motion walking, and the outsole is tough while still being light and flexible. Fashionably strolling around the city, I walked and walked and walked to put these beauty to the test. Verdict? Well after literally bouncing and the feeling of walking on air, I can’t help but have fallen a little bit in love with my Intrinsic pair. Inseparable we have become!

Bottom line, you can be effortlessly stylish with the right pair of trainers…

    Ahh you look fabulous! I love those cute trainers – I would never have thought to pair something like that with leather look trousers but hell yeah, it totally works! Gorgeous xxx

    It’s incredible how stylish you (only you, I think) can make a pair of trainers look! Gorgeous. But credit to Ecco too, as these do look fab. Will check out, as have increasingly been swapping heels for flats now that I live and work somewhere with lots of cobbles!

    I’d never heard of Ecco before reading this. But I really like the look of these. I live in flat comfy shoes and these totally look like something I would wear.
