What your feet can expect when you’re expecting

With a royal baby on the way, baby fever has officially swept the nation.

These days, there are oodles of books, films and websites telling women what they can expect when they’re pregnant and how to be ‘yummy’ while being a mummy..

The truth is that journey along the way to welcoming your bundle of joy is often punctuated by common pregnancy complaints, foot pain being just one of them*.

Foot pain is an incredibly common problem in pregnancy. Sudden weight gain, a new weight-bearing stance and swelling can all contribute to an uncomfortable time in pregnancy for your feet.

That’s why experts stress the importance of wearing good shoes in pregnancy. It can be so tempting to slip on a pair of flip flops or sheepskin boots, but these shoes provide no support whatsoever for the arch of the foot or help compensate for the additional strain on your feet.

Not only are your feet likely to be uncomfortable while pregnant, they may also change in size! For your comfort, and to make sure your feet don’t suffer any long term side effects from your pregnancy, it is vital to have your feet properly measured and to wear supportive footwear that can adjust to the swelling in your feet – ie laced or elasticated styles.

ECCO has a stylish range of supportive shoes featuring in-built comfort technologies that help regulate the climate of your feet, leaving you feeling fresh, frump-free and every inch of a yummy mummy.

* Always talk to your midwife or GP about pregnancy complaints, including foot pain and swelling.

Let’s get to…play!

Last week Play England launched an initiative called Love Outdoor Play.

Inspired by the need for all children to play outdoors more, the initiative calls on everyone to do something to make sure more children have more access to outdoor play.

Whether it be using the site to map local recommendations for outdoor play (a bit like Pinterest), volunteering at a local play project, publicising the cause via social media or just simply seeing the initiative as a reminder to ditch the jobs for the park this weekend. See for more details.

The fact is, young or old, we all benefit from getting outdoors, reconnecting with nature and just having room to breathe.

Whether you’re inspired to get outside for you, for your kids or for you both, a great pair of outdoor shoes from Ecco will mean you’re always ready to play, no matter what the weather.

All that glitters…

Gold is a thing of beauty.

Whether a gold bullion or a piece of jewellery, gold will always signify luxury and an investment in something special for the buyer, and the fortunate recipient.

This Summer, The Goldsmiths’ Company is staging a special event at Goldsmiths’ Hall in London to tell the untold story of the key role gold plays in British heritage.

Running until 28th July, Gold: Power and Allure features more than 400 gold pieces dating from 2500BC to modern day. Better still, despite the expensive contents, the event is free admission. Visit to find out more.

In fashion, some women look beyond gold as an accessory and instead use it as a wardrobe theme to add class to their signature style.

If you’re looking to a little glitter to your look, look no further than the sophisticated Ecco Kelly shoe.

Ecco Kelly

A classic yet modern ballerina shoe, the Ecco Kelly is the perfect way to inject an understated class and glamour into your everyday look.

Cool camping

With Summer creeping ever closer, most of us begin to daydream of holidays.

And while package holidays and warmer climates still hold their appeal, UK holidays and camping in particular are having something of a renaissance in recent years.

Camping has become the ‘in thing’ for good reason too. Embracing a resurgence in British holiday-making, the camping industry has pitched its tent firmly in the 21st century.

Luxury camping (‘glamping’), better choice and availability of equipment and an eye on cost-effective holiday-making have all played a part. And sites like featuring a ‘round up of this year’s most stylish tents’ and ’80 tasty campfire recipes’ have made camping both cool and accessible to us all.

But, despite the fancy marketing, we all know the reality of camping can often mean cold, soggy feet! So, if you’re considering camping this Summer and you’re not splurging on a luxury glamping-style camp site, check out Ecco’s range of walking shoes and boots.

Isn’t it about time…?

Often overlooked in favour of more fashionable short-term footwear purchases, a good pair of outdoor shoes can last you for years. And when you need a pair, there is literally no substitute.

So what’s stopping you? This week at Ecco we’re giving you three good reasons to invest in a great pair of outdoor shoes – now .

1/ Ditch the wellies

Whether walking the dog or getting kids to school on wet days, wellies might look the part but, if you have any real distance to walk, they don’t feel it.

Ecco Sayan II

Ecco Sayan II Lo 

This women’s walking shoe has a full GORE-TEX lining. Comfortable and 100% waterproof, what more could you ask for?

2/ Love your trainers

Comfortable as they are, the chances are your trainers weren’t designed for some of the tasks you put them to. So, if you do really love your trainers, prolong their lifespan by keeping them for the gym or the badminton court – and away from muddy walks!

Ecco Dhaka Mid GTX

Ecco Dhaka Mid GTX 

This men’s walking boot has a rugged rubber sole, grip and traction on rough terrain. And sometimes, non-marking soles on trainers designed for indoor surfaces just won’t cut it.

3/ Live without limits

Bike, hike or explore – or do it all in a day. Nowadays, getting back to nature is about adventure and escaping some of the boundaries that can constrain day-to-day modern life.

Ecco Sayan II Lo GTX

Ecco Sayan II Lo GTX
