Featured Review: ECCO: Standing apart from the crowd

04/16/2008 at 12:00 PM ET

Ecco1 While I’ve always been happy to be a mom of boys, I have to admit, there is a small part of me (okay … a big part) that is consistently disappointed when it comes time to choose clothes for our sons.  I get so tired of the dearth of choices — something blue with stripes, or something blue with footballs? — that I do find myself gazing longingly across the aisle at the little girl section, where the options appear to be aplenty. 

But shoes have always been the great equalizer — a quick and easy way for us to help the boys express their individuality each and every day.  We recently tested two new sneaker styles from ECCO, and any fears I may have been secretly harboring about Owen and Sam blending in with the crowd quickly went out the window.  When your kids are walking around in ECCO, there’s no chance of that happening.  Just ask Violet Affleck, 2.  Sure, she’s followed everywhere she goes by a swarm of paparazzi … but is it her famous parents they’re after, or is it her shoes

Respectively, I totally disagree lol . I love dressing my son and find there is such a great variety out there now. Between Gap/Old Navy. H&M, GYmboree (sometimes) mixed with some cute online funky finds, I find it so much fun to dress him. He is 5 now but I have never had an issue with it. With the girls stuff it’s either pink or purple! you look in the girls dept and it’s like pink air lol I will say moms of boys do have to work a little harder at it and really look for cute and different items. I really like these Ecco sneaks though!! so funky!
