Ecco Shoe Repairs:
One of the most popular shoes
we have seen lately is Ecco. Most every one we get in with a pair
loves these for their comfort. Ecco uppers seem to hold up pretty
well, and provide a good fit and style for today's consumer.
Most shoe shops will not touch
a pair of Ecco shoes if they require new soles. The problem here is
with the materials. While extremely comfortable, and fairly durable,
once these soles deteriorate, it's HARD to put a new sole on an Ecco.
This material melts when sanded upon, creating a huge mess and traditional
gluing methods do not work either. However, at Hoover Shoe Repair,
we have perfected a method of replacing an Ecco sole with a Vibram sole,
and once the repair is finished, it's much easier to repair the second and
third time around.
Pros: Comfortable and
modern. Good uppers.
Cons: Most repair shops
will tell you this shoe is not repairable. Hard to repair the first
Bottom Line: Not
a bad choice if you are looking for something dress-casual, modern, and
comfortable. We are capable of replacing the sole with a top-quality
Vibram sole - without sacrificing the comfort and look of the original.
