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

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!

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.

New Year with a twist

It’s almost New Year and, here at Ecco, we’re all thinking about our resolutions for the year ahead.

While fitness, financial and environmental resolutions tend to dominate most people’s list of resolutions. Others out there have a slightly more unusual theme, for instance, meeting Lady Gaga or stroking a giraffe…

These are just some of the responses gathered by wishbomb.com, a goal-setting website where people can share their goals and gather support from other users.

Wishbomb’s founder Ricky Cooper said: “Each year people make the same resolutions which nobody ends up sticking to, so I think it’s a real positive change to set unique and ambitious targets for the year ahead.”

Whether your resolutions are about improving your fitness or re-introducing a sense of adventure into your life, you can find a great selection of men’s trainers, women’s trainers and walking shoes and boots here at Ecco.

Happy New Year from the team here at Ecco Shoes UK

The Boxing Day bloat

It’s that familiar post-revelry feeling….

Waking up surrounded by gifts you don’t know where to put, a stomach aching from a day filled with gastronomic excesses, the good possibility of a headache from those one-too-many tipples and that sinking feeling that Boxing Day will probably hold more of the same.

Here at Ecco Shoes, we believe there are two fundamental forms of attack when it comes to Boxing Day:

Method one: Defiance

This method involves getting out in the fresh air for a while, getting some exercise and a sense of escape from the general festive chaos.

Make an excuse to walk the dog, fetch the paper, or, make no excuses and just run like the wind!

For defiant men:

Kolyma-II-Mid-810014

Ecco Kolyma II Mid

For defiant women:

Ecco Crag

Method two: Party-on

Well-seasoned revellers may choose to defer worrying about the impact of their excesses, to enjoy the moment and to opt for stylish comfort and loose-fitting waistbands!

For party-on men:

For party-on women:

Whichever approach you decide to take this Boxing Day, stay happy and healthy.

Merry Christmas from us all at Ecco Shoes

Ecco at the peak

Ecco
This Sunday marks International Mountain Day.

Designated by the United Nations General Assembly since 2003, the focus of this year’s International Mountain Day is Mountains and Forests.

So what does this mean to us as we busy ourselves with Christmas preparations this December?

Surprisingly, more than you’d think. For instance, did you know that over half of the world’s population depend on freshwater from mountains for drinking, cooking, washing, hydropower, irrigation and industry?

The 11th December 2011 will therefore be a day geared towards raising awareness of mountain forests and the role they play within the Green Economy and climate change adaption.

To learn more visit http://www.un.org/en/events/mountainday/background.shtml and get a personal perspective on change and development, read the oral testimonies of over 300 people who live in mountain and highland regions around the world at Mountain Voices.

Or, if you’re not much of a reader, maybe the best way to mark International Mountain Day is to get out there. Walk along mountain base and marvel at the awesome splendour towering above, hike the inclines or climb to the summit and enjoy the majestic scenery.

Get the gear…

Ecco Dhaka

For men – Ecco Dhaka Mid GTX

For women – Ecco Caravan

The GORE-TEX linings on these boots will keep your mind off the cold and superior grip and traction will keep your eyes off the terrain and firmly on the unmissable views.

Ecco Shoes – walk this way

Ecco Walkathon
The Ecco Walkathon is underway!

This year’s Walkathon is visiting towns and cities in Denmark, Germany and Poland raising money for Ecco’s Walk for Life program that supports causes and projects relating to children and education, the environment and health and active lifestyles.

The 2010 Ecco Walkathon saw over 48,000 participants walking to raise 400,000 euros for a number of selected charities and it’s hoped this year’s event will raise even more.

Upcoming Ecco Walkathon events will take place in the Danish city of Odense (3rd September) to coincide with Odense’s Health Festival, Warsaw, Poland (10th September) and Kolding, Denmark (15th October). Read more about the Ecco Walkathon.

Go Gore-tex at Glastonbury with Ecco Shoes

Glastonbury festival kicks off again this coming weekend and the line up is impressive to say the least.

With Coldplay, U2 and Beyonce just a few of the major acts headlining at the eponymous event, Glastonbury looks set to hang on to it’s status as one of the greatest gatherings in the musical calendar.

There’s just one hitch… have you looked outside?

Ecco Cheviot

Ecco Cheviot

Regular Glastonbury-goers are accustomed to the great British summer mercilessly going on strike during the event each year and will pack wellies and take consolation for their soggy feet in the beer tents.

Sadly, while wellies can make a fashion statement for the girls, the opposite is true for men. Neither are wellies particularly comfortable nor breathable for your feet. So, the beer tent it is then?

Better still, if you are off to Glastonbury or are considering any other soggy camping experience this summer, check out Ecco Shoes’ range of Gore-tex footwear.

Gore-tex fabrics are designed to be durably waterproof and breathable. Teamed with Ecco’s superior comfort technologies, Ecco’s Gore-tex footwear is a winning combination.
