ECCO Clayton PlainToe Tie Shoes - I've never described a pair of shoes as "fun", but here's another pair of ECCO shoes to add to your collection! I sport these shoes in the Cognac color and the more you wear them, the better they look. Let me explain what I mean. You know how your favorite pair of jeans develop "personality" over time by taking the shape of the objects you carry the most? For example, wear marks on back pockets from your wallet and the lightening of the denim in certain areas. The ECCO Clayton is the same!
Brand new, the Cognac comes in a tan color in nubuck leather. Once you begin to wear them, the rubbing from your pants and daily wear begins to darken the tan leather creating its "personality". I look forward to wearing them, because they just keep looking better each time I do. This is the "fun" factor that I'm talking about!
ECCO positions these shoes as a hybrid dress casual, meaning you can dress them up or down. Stylish in both dress pants and jeans, they are definitely versatile. Quality and attention to detail is bar none! Leather lined with a removable covered inlay sole with ECCO Comfort Fibre System (ECFS) that permits breathability, these shoes are not only stylish but extremely comfortable. Compressed EVA outsole with leather welt and light weight, sporty outsole means you won't be complaining about your feet hurting even if you wear these all day long.
As for sizing, if you are purchasing through the internet and don't have the luxury of trying it on I suggest you order a half size down. I usually wear a size 8 US/EUR 42, but the 7-7.5US/EUR 41 is what fit me perfectly. The ECCO Clayton also comes in Shadow White.
Bottom Line: Looking for fun, stylish, and comfortable shoes that can develop its own personality over time? The ECCO Clayton in Cognac will more than fulfill your needs!
