HYDROMAX

EXCEPTIONAL WATER RESISTANCE

Providing superb weather and perspiration resistance, the Hydromax ECCO leather treatment ensures uppers remain soft and supple, even after repeated exposure to wet conditions.

INLAY

ECCO COMFORT FIBRE SYSTEM INLAY SOLE

Inlay soles from ECCO feature advanced design for greater comfort. Breathable materials help ensure good foot health and comfort.  The ECCO Comfort Fibre System (ECFS) is the bottom layer of ECCO's removable insoles. The top layer can be made of leather, Poliyou®, or a combination of leather and textile.

DIRECT INJECTION

THE SECRET TO THE 'INSTANT' FIT

Direct Injection Production or DIP is at the core of the ECCO shoe sole technology. The majority of our shoes are constructed with a midsole or outsole made from Polyurethane (PU) which is a soft and flexible compound and retains its ability to react like a trampoline when walking.

RECEPTOR

YOUR FOOT'S ULTIMATE SUPPORT

ECCO’s Receptor® technology is based around motion and comfort - the outcome of a two year study on the bare human foot and the receptors located in the foot.  This helped us identify the philosophy “Every time you take one step, your foot takes three”.

ECCO SCULPTURED

STYLE AND COMFORT

ECCO’s ground breaking Sculptured Comfort Technology makes it possible to create a high heel shoe with an anatomical last, a very soft, comfortable sole and a soft, flexible heel.

ECCO SHAPE

The Shape Collection features ECCO Shape Technology to lower the heel of the foot within the shank. Beautifully crafted and anatomically moulded.

YAK LEATHER

EXTREME OUTDOOR SURVIVAL

Yak leather is extremely strong and abrasion resistant due to the thin, compact woven collagen fibre and closed fine grain. These make it possible for us to cut the hides into thin leathers, thereby reducing the weight without sacrificing performance.
