Comments about ECCO Mens BIOM EVO Train Plus:

Most people who buy these shoes will probably love them. They are made of high quality leather and the workmanship and the detail is excellent. They are relatively cushy and pretty good for casual walking and knocking around.

I bought these to replace a 2 year old pair of first generation Biom B 2.1 running shoes. The shoe under review belongs to Ecco's 2nd generation of Biom running shoes, and it suffers in comparison. The B 2.1 is a dream running shoe. It LITERALLY fits like a glove in an astonishing way. By comparison, the Evo Train Plus, which is wider, with a wider sole and a looser fit, feels clunky and sloppy. It is also, as a trainer, heavier--so the comparison may not be altogether fair.

I tried this trainer as a running shoe for two months, but I never warmed to it. It always felt snow shoe-ish in comparison with the B 2.1. I finally cleaned up the 2.1s, put new insoles in, and added new laces. The difference was night and day--far superior to the Evo. The Evo Trainer is just not a running shoe.

The Biom concept and the 1st generation of Biom shoes are a landmark in engineering, in design, and in production quality. This goes for the 1.1 walkers as well--especially the earliest ones with the softer leather. The explosion of biom shoes of all sorts and at differing levels of quality have undermined the unique achievement of those early Biom designers. So has the marketing, which seems to be out of touch with what the designers have accomplished. The trainer under review is a good example. It sells under different names, and the description of the shoe is little help in differentiating this shoe from other choices.

In sum, this is a fine shoe which may be perfect for many people. I enjoy knocking around in mine. I can't recommend it for running, though.
