Memo to self re: Ecco

In Boston I bought a pair of Ecco shoes, only to have them fall apart in under a year. Failing to learn the lesson, I bought some Ecco winter boots. They were fine when we left, only worn a few times, but after 8 days in Minnesota the soles have shredded away. No more Ecco footwear for me. Sure, it’s light, but it’s expensive and it doesn’t last.
