David Copeland: The Manager at Nordstrom's Department Store I spoke to the other day personally has 90 pair of high quality brands of shoes for himself. The brand he wears most often when he is on his feet each day are ECCO dress shoes. He recommends them for very, very good comfort - when not wearing Allen Edmonds shoes>
Are you including Ecco in the high quality brands category.? Not being sarcastic, just curious .....
I am including it as a brand that is not only sold by Nordstroms, but was highly recommended by the Manager I spoke to - who wears this brand in a dress version when on his feet each day. He still owns many AE shoes and other quality items . . . but looking at his Echos from a normal view would very seldom spell out an inferior shoe. You may wish to try a pair on, or visit Ecco's web site for many more details about their mission.
Thanks for the question,
