From the manufacturer
Crafted with the rigors of the outdoors in mind, all ECCO outdoor shoes feature materials of the highest quality to provide the wearer with optimal comfort and durability for the intended activity.
ECCO Freedom Fit
ECCO footwear is designed to fit from heel to instep, unlike conventional footwear which fits around the ball of your foot, allowing more room for your toes to move freely and supporting the natural motion of your step. ECCO Freedom Fit also increases blood flow, and reduces foot fatigue.
Common ECCO Outdoor Technologies
BIOM Natural Motion
BIOM Natural Motion technology is based on the natural shape and movement of the foot. The low-to-the-ground construction in the BIOM multisport shoes provides flexibility and better ground contact; great for all outdoor activities.
Receptor guides your foot to an optimal 20-degree angle of ground contact, made with our specially rounded heel. An integrated Internal Mid-foot Shank then delivers anatomical support throughout your step.
Finally, Dual Flex Grooves are activated to give you a more efficient push-off.
Highly breathable and 100% waterproof, we integrate a GORE-TEX membrane into our uppers before carefully sealing them. Using this technology enables us to create outdoor shoes that keep your feet dry, comfortable and ventilated – even on the wettest journeys.
HYDROMAX is a treatment developed by ECCO to make our leather highly water repellent. It helps preventing the leather from hardening as it dries, keeping the hide supple, durable and breathable – even after repeated water contact.
The yak thrives in extreme conditions of the Tibetan Plateau. Characteristics that protect yaks from warm summers and cold winters in the mountains results in an exceptional multi-season leather. The aged, rugged appearance is emphasized by strong markings and natural characteristics, which are highly visible. Yak leather is robust and abrasion resistant yet breathable, with a soft hand feel and excellent stretch and return traits.
GORE-TEX SURROUND Technology
A special selection of Hiking & Walking styles utilize the ground breaking GORE-TEX SURROUND waterproof construction, for increased breathability around the entire foot; not just the top.
Direct Injection Production with ECCO FLUIDFORM Technology
Developed by ECCO over many years, the FLUIDFORM Direct-injection process is a technology that enables us to create ergonomically advanced soles. By injecting a resilient, shock-absorbent material directly into the shoe mold, we bond the sole to the upper without glue or stitching. The result is a sole that fits naturally, and a light yet cushioned step.
Some ECCO outdoor styles feature a Thermoplastic (TPU) outsole for increased wear on urban surfaces. The TPU outsole material is nearly 5x more durable than typical rubber outsoles giving them unparalleled long term durability.
