I have spent thousands of hours standing and walking around trade shows and conferences in my career. One of the things that I have learned is that having great shoes is the best investment you can make for your legs, back, and sanity. You will want to find shoes that are comfortable, sturdy, and look good. Early in my career a colleague of mine made a recommendation that I should go out and buy a pair of ECCO Men’s Dress Shoes. It was the best thing I ever purchased in regards to my work wardrobe!
The ECCO Men’s Helsinki Slip-On is my model of choice when I purchase ECCO shoes. I have both the black pair and a brown pair in my closet. I like the slip on shoes as they make it easier to get through security in the airport, which if I’m running late is a huge time saver.
One of the main reasons that I’m recommending ECCO on my blog is that I have owned my pair of ECCOs for nearly 5 years and the shoes still look great when I polish them up. I don’t wear them everyday, but I do wear them once or twice a week. That’s a great product to last that long.
I typically purchase my ECCO shoes at Nordstrom or Amazon.com.
