Ecco Shoes Review
Table Of Contents
Ecco is known for making “comfort shoes,” which aren’t necessarily the most desirable option if you want to strut your fashionista self on the streets of Milan. But this comfort-only reputation might be an unfair judgment.
It turns out TFG readers love their sandals, sneakers, and flats, too. We have to agree – many of their styles do strike a good balance between fashion and function. Check out the top readers recommended Ecco shoes!
Ecco Shoes Review for Sandals
Ecco Flash Woven Sandal
The ECCO Flash Woven Sandal is incredibly light, making it ideal for travelers who love to travel carry-on only. It comes in two cute colors—lion sambat (the tan shoe pictured) and denim blue—and the tan is great for summer and extremely versatile. From Lisbon to Bangkok, wear it to any destination with a warm climate and it will match with all your clothing.
The sturdy rubber sole also has a good grip, making it excellent for walking on cobblestone streets or loose gravel paths—more common than you might think when you’re exploring beautiful towns all over the world.
In addition, the Ecco huarache sandals have a really soft footbed, allowing your foot to sink in while still providing support. For a “comfort” shoe brand, the gladiator sandal style is downright refreshing. These offer a casual, yet bohemian and cool vibe.
The biggest downside to these sandals are the ankle straps. If you’re traveling to Asia where you’ll need to remove your shoes frequently in temples or having to go through airport security, the annoyance of having to constantly undo the buckle to remove the sandals can be a pain for some travelers.
However, the ankle strap is also a positive because it’s strong and secure providing additional support when you’re walking, preventing you from slipping. If shoe removal isn’t too inconvenient for you, then the pros outweigh the cons.

Ecco Damara Sandals
The Ecco Damara ankle sandal has a very versatile and minimalist look that mimics many chic sandals currently available. Pair these shoes with black Anatomie Skyler pants and a dressy blouse and you’ll have the perfect outfit for a trip to Europe.
They have slightly more padding than the Flash Huarache style, with a bit more support in the heel and the arch. Comfort is always an important consideration when choosing travel shoes, and their additional cushion makes them great Ecco walking sandals.
