ECCO Men's Track II Lace-Up Shoes, Bison, 10 UK
ECCO Men's Track II Lace-Up Shoes, Bison, 10 UK
Offered by ShoesByPost
Price: £139.00

4.0 out of 5 stars They are really comfortable. The only problem was the extremely painful £150 ..., 6 Jun. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought these to replace a pair which had had nearly constant use for a number of years. They are really comfortable. The only problem was the extremely painful £150 price tag !! I've never paid that amount for a pair of shoes-but they are exceptional.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not again !!, 19 Jan. 2015

I bought another one of these because of the good design after the first one jammed about a month after purchase. This one jammed after one run in the dishwasher-another waste of money.Still twice bitten three times shy !!

The non-stick coating peeled off after about three uses. Very disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book (in both senses of the word), 19 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
At 800 pages this is a real opus. I'm about 200 pages through (unsure exactly as its a Kindle version). Very readable though at times verbose. Must be one of the seminal texts although it misses on the experiences of the "man in the street" covered so ably by authors like Purkiss.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very enjoyable read describing at least in part how the Civil War affected the man in the street.This sets it apart from the majority which deal with the battles and politics.What precluded a fifth star was the fact that the Kindle edition has no illustrations, and whilst I don't need comic books,SOME pics would have been nice!

1.0 out of 5 stars No good for Kindle,PC or Tablet, 10 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The maps are not selectable or zoomable and the existing size on Kindle or tablet is not ,in my opinion, large enough.I have requested a refund and ordered the book-an unusual occurrence for me these days.

1.0 out of 5 stars No way, 7 Oct. 2013
I have PS CS5 and have been a Photoshop user since PS3. Each time I bought an upgrade and enjoyed the progressively more intuitive features. Seems like its the end of the road as I'm not prepared to have software on the "never,never" in a cloud. So long,Adobe its been nice !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 11 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After looking at a lot of reviews I settled on this.I hike and take macro shots so I required a travel tripod which managed low level as well.I'm in two minds whether to take the extra length on the centre column as it takes a while to remove for low level shots-
on balance probably not. all in all an excellent design.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great-but the typos !!, 20 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 365 Days (Kindle Edition)
Five stars for the book-bios of soldiers admitted to Zama evac hospital in Japan during the Vietnam War. But the typos- un-necessary hyphens on every
page,sudden changes of font,sometimes only two words on a page with next page arriving mid-sentence. I know its not my Kindle as I have been reading
other books in the interim.Without doubt-from the point of view of typos-by far the worst I've downloaded.
