It’s no secret that we’re huge advocates of updating your wardrobe regularly throughout the year so that it always reflects your personal style and tastes – even if this means doing the occasional clear out of items that you no longer wear (or have never worn!) Of course, one of our favourite wardrobe areas to update is our trusty shoe collection, and it almost goes without saying (but we’ll say it anyway as we love talking about shoes) that no great wardrobe is complete without a great collection of footwear for all seasons.
Quality over quantity
While it’s great to spend less on “trend” pieces that you’ll only wear for a season or two, for classic wardrobe items we always recommend spending that little bit more, as the quality and durability of those slightly more expensive items will mean that you’ll get years and years of enjoyment out of them – And who doesn’t love hanging on to their favourite pair of shoes for as long as possible!
ECCO – The ultimate in style, quality and comfort
ECCO has been a favourite shoe brands for years, and for good reason too – they’re comfortable, and their quality and durability is incredible! Their classic designs and styles also mean that you’ll be able to wear them for years without them ever going “out of fashion” – and we mean it when we say they’ll literally last for years!
Another great thing about ECCO shoes is that they’re committed to ethically producing all of their shoes and bags – which means giving back to the communities in which their products are manufactured, sticking to environmentally friendly manufacturing methods, and being responsible for every single one of the factories and tanneries involved in the process of making their shoes. You can read more about ECCO’s Social Responsibility commitments on their website.
