My favorite shoe is the ECCO RXP 3040 but I took a chance ordering these, hoping they would provide the same support and comfort as the 3040. I wasn't impressed by the style but would trade style for comfort. Unfortunately, these delivered neither. They are lacking in arch support, are wide around the ankle and hence slide up and down, and they are not attractive. Unfortunately, I wore them outside and cannot return them now. I would not buy these again, nor would I recommend them.

I was so hopeful that these would be my new favorites. Unfortunately, they just were not anything special and for the price, I expect an, "ahhhhhh" factor. They have virtually no support. The beet color is neon fuchsia. The fit is true to size. Back they go.

When I slipped my foot in this shoe I literally moaned. It is so comfortable. It hugs my narrow heel so there's no slipping and sliding. Good arch and heel support. I know I'm going to love these shoes!

I have tried many shoes! I'm a nurse and walk all day and these shoes are a lifesaver. For once my feet are not aching at the end of the day. All I can say is thank you. I love the comfort and the looks are ok... I wear a 7 to 7.5 and the size 38 fits perfect.I never write reviews, but this shoe is worth it and deserves a 10 star review for me! I know they are more expensive but they are worth every penny and might save me money because I have stopped shoe shopping!

These are the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned. I have horrible skin that blisters after 10 minutes of running. I gave up on it because I got tired of the pain. I am now back running because of these fantastic shoes. I normally am suspicious when a company that specializes in casual and dress shoes tries a new genre, but Ecco somehow managed to beat the sport shoe brands at their own game! It is so refreshing to deal with a company that still cares about design and doing things right, especially when everyone these days is watering down their quality and going the cheap route.

Best shoe I've worn in a long time. So very comfortable, great support without being too stiff, and stylish too! Plan to wear them for teaching, walking and working out.

After trying several pair of sneakers I have decided to keep these. My heel slips out a bit but they're so cute I can't give them back! My foot is well supported, but seeing my toes are pretty square and the design slants down on the outer edge that's snug but not uncomfortable. These get 10 for looks and 4 for comfort for me. It's true to width but makes your foot look slender rather than the chunky, wide athletic shoes.

I have never written a review before, but these are without doubt the most comfortable shoes I have ever owned, including the many other pairs of Eccos I have worn and loved. They are incredibly light and equally supportive. My feet are wide only across the balls, and the Bioms fit perfectly with excellent heel fit, plenty of room for my toes, and great ankle and arch support. If only I could figure out how to wear them all day, every day!

I own two pairs of the Ecco Bion Trainer. My feet are narrow and this particular shoe fits well and is very comfortable while working out in the gym. It is a light shoe and easy to move around in. The shoe laces are long which it makes it easier to double knot. I am very pleased with this shoe and highly recommend it to anyone who works out at the gym or just around town. Thanks again Zappos for your continue excellent customer service. Many website companies could learn a lesson from you.

I never suspected this style (rather pointed toe) would "work" with my big toe problems, but they are perfect. I have back & hip problems as well and have walked as exercise for a week now in these shoes and they are supportive, lightweight, yet solid support. Yah! I didn't have success with their sandals, but I love this shoe.

Have never written a review before and I own several Ecco shoes, sandals and boots. This shoe was really disappointing for an Ecco shoe and for the price. Good arch support but NO cushioning in ball of foot at all in my opinion. It’s a really cute shoe style but is going back thanks to Zappos’ awesome customer service!

I ordered the hot pink shoes to make it fun to wear these type of shoes while confined to an ankle brace. My cast I had on before the brace was hot pink, too! I have had many compliments on the shoes and the color. They are super comfortable. I only wear Ecco shoes, and I love Zappos customer service.

I love these shoes! Very lightweight and cool, they are good for every day wear or light workout usage. Not enough structure or support for running, though. The colors are bright and cheerful and I will probably get at least one more pair!

I have 2 pair of these in different colors. Ordered the second pair 9 months later. Very comfortable. Good arch support. The grey on the shoe are reflectors. Worth the money. Only trouble is that I had to order several pair each time to get the right arch support. I am not sure why there was variability. So if you are patient and don't mind sending back and re-ordering, I say give it a try.

This is one of the best athletic shoes that I have ever worn. The shoe supports my ankle and my arches. The heel is cushioned and softens impact. I checked out several athletic shoes before I found this one. I plan to buy another pair of ECCOs in the fall. Thank you Zappos for making shopping for shoes such an enjoyable experience. I live in a rural area and shopping Zappos sure beats traveling to the city and going in and out of shoe stores to find the best fitting shoe. Zappos is absolutely the greatest.

I bought 2 pair of these. Probably the most comfortable shoes; great arch support. Feels solid and safe even when walking on uneven ground. Took several attempts to get the right size as there seemed to be variability within the same size. If you have the patience, they are worth it.

The Ecco Sport Biom Trainer is a nice looking shoe. The fit was actually excellent. I wear a 36 in Ecco's (size 5- 5.5) I love Ecco, this company seems to be one of the few where the shoes/sandals fit well and are very comfortable to wear. I had to return this pair of Ecco's due to the extreme lack of arch support. These shoes are really made for a walker or runner who has a very stable foot and enjoys the lightness of this design. I was really sad to return these Ecco's, as I have a very hard to fit foot in a running shoe and despite the lack of support, the shoe did fit!

I was attempting to find a shoe that would support my inside arch but would not cushion my feet to the point that I would be weakening my ankles. I tried on many expensive Nike, Asics, Saucony and Adidas brands and had almost settled with a pair of Asics when the sales associate asked me to try on the Biom Natural Motions. I took them for a run around the mall and was very pleased with the snug level of comfort, but i also felt as though I were not even wearing any shoes! They are quite light and make running a lot more enjoyable, and they support my arch as well as the pair of Asics I was assigned in BMT. I am very happy with my choice. The only downside is that you are more likely to smell a foot odor due to the mesh material. Otherwise the Biom Natural Motions were worth the money.

I am a big fan of Ecco shoes and after reading the Ecco website online info decided to order these and was ready to bite it on the cost. Comfy to me = worth the money. What a disappointment. I own several Ecco's and seems they are now much narrower. I'm usually a 9.5 and even tried a 10 and as comfy as the fabric is they still were too narrow, my feet were hanging over the side of the sole! They are constructed with quality materials, super comfy other than narrow. Good support and cushion but would fall under minimalist shoe. Color black with gray...ugly! Both sizes returned.

There is no doubt that these are extremely cool-looking trainers. They are sleek, and they project a hi-tech-modern appearance. However, as soon as I put them on and laced them up, my ankles started over-pronating -- almost as if the shoes themselves were guiding the ankles into kissing each other! I have four other brands of trainers -- Asics, Brooks, Merrell, and New Balance, and find them all to provide excellent heel spread in the sole, and proper containment of the ankle at the collar. I would say that ECCO has produced in Biom Natural Motion a fashion trainer that might suit some customers who want a walking shoe that is somewhat more stable, cushioned, and supportive than a fashion heel or flat, but I can't take the risk of an ankle twist or a tumble. Sorry, ECCO, I will be returning these.

I've been disappointed in these shoes. Although they look fine and felt comfortable at first, I've had to stop wearing them because I have hip pain after wearing them for an hour or so. Disappointing....
