Hints of spring are on the horizon which means it’s time to get my shoe game ready. One of my go-to looks this season is a rolled up pair of chinos styled with a low-rise sneaker. But not just any sneaker will do. It has to have character and personality, and yes, we’re still talking about your footwear. I’ve teamed up with my friends over at Zappos to check out the new collection from ECCO in search of the perfect pair of spring kicks.
Not all sneakers are created the same. Living in New York and walking for miles around the city means I need a comfortable shoe. ECCO has a special technology in their shoe — something they call the Comfort Fibre System™, which makes the sole flexible, light and hardwearing. I saw this baby blue color and instantly snatched it up. You know I love a pop of color! Even if you wear more neutral colors, you can still incorporate a pop of brightness with your footwear. It’s perfect for spring and takes your outfit to an entire new level. I also love the simplicity of this sneaker because you can dress it up or down. Pair it with denim, chinos, or even a sports jacket and dress pants.
While browsing the shoes, this backpack also caught my eye. I love adventuring in the spring and summer, but I sometimes struggle to find a day bag thats stylish and functional. This backpack is both. It has a padded compartment for your laptop, two front zip pockets, and an interior full of zip-up and slip-in sections. There’s plenty of storage to keep all of your important items protected. I love the blue tones of this bag. The dyed leather gives an elegant yet cool feeling to keep you looking all sorts of GQ while on your adventures.
I’ve been a fan of Zappos.com for a while now, because the shopping experience is so easy. I find myself having less time to go to physical stores, so any company that offers a fast and reliable service is one that I will keep using. With so many brands offered, I’m excited to cut down some of the searching for you, and share ECCO. Remember that this is the season to have some fun with your footwear and accessories, so boldly embrace bright colors and take some spring-worthy risks!
