No - UGG have skinned Mr. Clooney to make these cheap and cheerful beach flip flops.

I paid £65 for a pair of Merrells but they are lovely and sooooo comfortable (and I only really paid £35 as I had a gift voucher for the remaining £30....)

I think you should be more worried that you admired them rather than the price of them to be honest.grin

Am not shocked at the price, I have Merrells too, but they are sodding revolting.

Go to an outlet centre - big one in Swindon if you are nearby. Much cheaper there.

If it's any comfort they'll start smelling of fish after a while - I think they use a weird glue in Ecco shoes that REEK after a couple of months!

ooo only an hour from swindon outlet, is it any good?

Ecco are worth every single penny imo. I bought a pair in 1992 for 57 quid and to this day are the only pair of shoes I've been able to wear straight off the bat without blisters. <wistful>

Cheer up, they're horrible.

Enough of the show snobbery. I have some fab shoes from Ecco - they're (for want of a better description) lace-up leather plimsoll type shoes. I have a mid blue and a red pair, and they're so comfortable and easy to wear. I think I paid about £80 per pair, but I would happily pay the same again. very hard wearing and comfortable if you like to walk a lot.

Actually, before you go to Swindon make sure the Ecco shop is still there - I've not been for a long time!

Probably the comfiest thing you'll have on your feet, though! Try an outlet centre.

I only ever wear Ecco shoes and buy a pair of whatever they've got in the sales. I'd hang on for a few weeks tbh, the sale will be on soon.

Although even at full price they are worth every penny. Like walking on marshmallows.

Agreed. nOT for the fashionista but amazing comfort. After years of point shoes (ballet) my feet are shockingly deformed and painful. Echo every time.

wendihouse22 Fri 03-Jun-11 10:13:34

Bloody iPad won't let me spell E C C O unless spaced. Pain in the butt!

If you think you are going to wear them at least twice a week for 6 months a year then £65 is not a lot of money - think about how much you spend on high heels for a wedding that you only wear a couple of times ever!

I agree that say £250 is a bit steep for shoes, but anything under £100 that is leather outer, leather lined and comfortable, is worth the money!

They are rank...I was robbed in Shoon for £80.00 three years ago to be fair they are still going strong.

Have a look on eBay - I recently sold a pair for under a bloody fiver angry
