Who should not buy ECCO Exostride

ECCO ST. 1 is a good alternative to consider. It fits great and has superb arch support as well. A tester also suggested buying ECCO Biom Fjuel Racer for a quieter alternative. Check out Salomon ACS Pro Advanced for a grippy kick without worrying about squeaking. It is also not narrow and provides appreciable support.

Insanely comfortable 

Testers applaud the sneaker’s comfort. An ECCO fan shared that, like other ECCO sneakers they own, Exostride is “very comfortable from the get-go.” Another said that using the shoe for work is "like a Cadillac for your feet.” 

A sneakerhead said they bought Exostride as a substitute for their Brooks Adrenaline sneakers and said their “feet are once again happy.” One reviewer even shared that after walking around 50 kilometers, they felt “no chafing or soreness.” According to another, they can’t find a flaw in the shoe, saying that there’s “nothing wrong with them.” Another fan said they are definitely buying another pair because their "feet have never felt better in a pair of sneakers!"

ECCO Exostride runs a little narrow

The kick's overall silhouette runs narrow. A commenter shared that they found the shoe a little narrow and suggested wearing thinner socks so that “they fit perfectly.” In another review, someone blamed the tight fit on "the way the shoelaces were installed." They shared that they have to readjust them several times to be okay.

Tread with support with Exostride

Exostride has “superior arch support,” said one in their review. Another said that with the excellent support and great looks of the kicks, "what more can a guy ask for?"

A sneakerhead describes them as having a “higher arch than most.” However, a comment said they could not get accustomed to the high arch of the shoe.

Exostride’s upper is everything

Made of leather, the upper of ECCO Exostride is very soft in a style that is “non-fussy and plain in a nice way.” It also provides water resistance, making feet “relatively warm,” which, according to a reviewer, is “more than you would expect” from the kicks. They are also very lightweight and vented with perforations for breathability. The leather “tends to hold less dirt” and can be wiped easily with cloth, said one tester. 

Outsole collects rocks easily and can be squeaky

Another issue is about the sole easily catching sand and small rocks, according to a tester. Another reviewer commented on rubber outsoles about “the sound they produce when you walk outside" on a wet surface. One sneakerhead even shared they have to switch to a pair that is "far easier on the ears."

Get your money’s worth

At $150, these outdoor shoes might be “a bit of a price to fork out.” However, with the features that ECCO Exostride is bragging about, a commenter suggested that it can be an alternative to ST1 Urban Sneaker “with a bit lower price.” Overall, sneakerheads find the kicks“ a little more expensive but worth it!” 

Hike to your heart’s content with ECCO Exostride

Sneakerheads agree that these kicks are light and comfortable, making them excellent for outdoor adventures. They provide ample water-resistance while remaining breathable, on top of having a good grip for uneven terrain. An experienced hiker said the sneakers have “no pressure points, even on longer hikes.”

Another tester even suggested buying ECCO Exostride if you are “all day on your feet.” One shared their experience of using the kicks for work and that their feet “feel great at the end of the day.”
