Very nice, well manufactured and comfortable shoes. Have been wearing them daily for 7 months, and they still look like new. Top leather is so flexible and nice looking. Easily cleaned. They worth the money paid for. Very pleased with Zappos and Ecco.

Based on the price of the product, I had great expectations related to the fit, styling, and comfort. I found these shoes to run small for my size (11.5), uncomfortable to wear, and downright ugly in style. Very disappointed in the ECCO brand!

My husband really liked the casual look of this shoe. Unfortunately, the area around the heel/ankle is too high and rubbed his achilles tendon uncomfortably. At first we thought we got the wrong size, but after trying 1/2 a size larger, he encountered the same problem.

These are my favorite shoes. I am on my feet all day and the still feel just as good at the end of the day.

These shoes are very lightweight, comfortable, with just the right amount of support. I typically walk 5 miles (hilly) at a time on pavement at a fast pace. These shoes do well on pavement, less well on uneven dirt. The key is how long they will last. My last pair of walking shoes lasted 6 months (not Ecco). I'm hoping the Eccos will last longer. I also like the style, where I can wear them to an informal dinner after I walk in them all day.

This is an excellent shoe, probably one of the only walking shoes left on the market that doesn't over correct your natural movement (you can actually bend this shoe). I tried a lot of shoes before deciding to spend 50% more than I ever have, but consider that ECCO is a reputable company for quality, the shoes are extremely comfortable, the PU soles last 3x longer than EVA (standard shoes) and if you choose the Yak leather it lasts 3x longer than Cow leather. In a world where walking shoes have been eclipsed by running shoes, Ecco does deserve some business for keeping in the market, and New Balance IMHO deserves to lose some business for leaving it. The comparable Asics and New Balance walkers were terrible. The mesh is very attractive, but I chose leather for durability. The leather does look good though, but not as cool as the mesh. They might be discontinuing the leather as Zappos wasn't getting my size in stock so I had to purchase through another supplier. Support Zappos though, nobody can beat their price or service, especially with Eccos.

Expensive shoes. Well worth the price. I travel and walk a lot. These are as good as I have found for myself.

Just got this Biom Walk. Well constructed and very comfortable. Fit is excellent. Highly recommended. Now the nits: 1) That split achilles thing rubs on both sides of my tendon. Not bad, and I'm sure I'll adapt, but it's useless and an unnecessary annoyance. 2) The Yak tag is absurd. I'll black it out, so again not a huge deal. But why? I know, label lovers. I don't like labels and don't like people who do. I don't need "look at me" shoes to persuade people I'm significant. 3) That glowing tag on the tongue? Again, I'll black it out, but see nit #2. Seriously, that's a terrible design element. 4) Biom all over the laces? Geez. Easily replaced, but awful. Why not just put flashing lights on them? They're great shoes, you just need to design them for secure grown-ups.

Very comfortable but too fancy for everyday all round use. Okay if you just walk on pavement. The tough "Yak" leather succumbed to an almost instant toe smile upon wearing.

This is a great looking shoe. I love Eccos. They are too small, and narrow. They are not worth the price. Give it a fancy euro style and name and get so much?

Holy smokes, are these comfortable! Believe me, I'm an overweight, middle-aged man who decided to start walking to get in shape, but historically, my feet hurt after the first half mile. I'm up to three miles and have lost 20 pounds. With these shoes and the right socks anyone can get out and get active.

The Biom shoes are the most comfortable shoes I have every worn. The quality and attention to detail are well worth the higher price. I have bought 2 more pair since I purchased the Biom Walk 1.1, one pair for golf and another for workouts. They are great!

7 Months later and the shoes are falling apart. The rubber that wraps around the front of the shoe, joining the upper with the sole, has cracked open on both shoes at the same time. They're becoming unwearable, my toes are about to stick out. I've used these as my everyday walking shoe. I love them, but for the price I expect to get more use out of them. It's very disappointing, and I feel like there's nothing I can do about it. I can't justify paying this much every 7 months to continue wearing the shoes.

Truly the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn! I was amazed at how well they fit and feel right out of the box. Yes they are expensive but they are well made, with quality materials, and at the end of a long day of standing and walking my feet feel great. Well worth the price!

Bought these after becoming a big Ecco fan so I had high expectations. It was a slightly narrow fit for me so I would go a little larger there. These are masters of pavement walking. It plants your foot just right every time. I like to wear a thin sock or none at all with these. Hey! If gloves could walk! Love that YAK!

I own four pairs of the Biom Walk so clearly they are great shoes or I have poor taste. They are the most overall comfortable shoes that I have owned, always my shoes of choice when I will be walking more than a few blocks. They are also stylish so wearing them to anything other than a formal affair is no problem. They are durable and I still can wear my first pair. I do wish they would offer more color choices, but I have had people compliment their looks.

This is a wonderful shoe that performs differently than any other I have and i think that's important for some people...to switch up what they wear evey day if they can. It has the advantage of utilizing slightly different muscle groups. These are meant for pavement, not the gym....no side flex. It has a definite platform approach with great support and cushion. At 280 lbs I need that. Polishes up great!! Caution: It runs a little small so get one size larger.

Good shoe, but I wonder why Zappos is listing these as Biom 1.1 when the Biom 1.3 is already out on the Ecco website. Maybe it's mislabeled, or is Zappos trying to unload old stock. I wonder.
