FLUIDFORM

Developed by ECCO over three decades, FLUIDFORM™ is a technology that enables us to create ergonomically advanced soles. By injecting a resilient, shock-absorbent material directly into the shoe mould, we bond the sole to the upper instantly and seamlessly, without the compromises common with glued or stitched assemblies.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Cradles your foot and cushions your step
• Absorbs shock to keep you comfortably on your feet longer
• Relatively light and flexible so you can move easily

GORE-TEX

GORE-TEX® is a highly breathable and 100% waterproof membrane which is exceptionally thin and has over 9 billion pores per square inch. We integrate a GORE-TEX® membrane into our uppers before carefully sealing them. Using this technology enables us to create comfortable shoes that are guaranteed to keep your feet dry.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Will keep your feet dry in wet conditions
• Allows air through the shoe, to keep your feet fresh

HYDROMAX

HYDROMAX® ECCO leather treatment provides high-quality leathers with excellent water and perspiration resistance, without the use of a membrane. Our rich leather uppers are treated with ECCO HYDROMAX® Technology during the tanning process. This special method also prevents the leather from hardening after repeated wetting and drying in demanding conditions, keeping leathers strong and durable, yet soft, supple, and breathable.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Repels moisture from leather
• Keeps leather soft after everyday use

YAK LEATHER

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. Due to the thin, compact woven collagen fibre and closed fine grain, it’s possible to cut the hides into thin layers, thus reducing the weight without sacrificing performance.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Naturally strong and durable, so it withstands wear
• Breathable and lightweight for comfort
• Unique markings make each pair of shoes one of a kind

NUBUCK LEATHER

Nubuck is a soft leather where the grain is buffed away in order to give a silky feel and a writing effect when touched with a finger. ECCO produces many types of nubuck which are used in a range of styles from casual to formal.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Velvet-like surface with writing effect and soft touch
• Vibrant colour possibilities
• Breathable

The result- an embracing glove-like fit that frees you to move with barefoot ease and efficiency.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Frames and supports each curve in your foot
• Allows your foot to move as if it would without shoes

SHAPE

Designed with ECCO’s unique FLUIDFORM™ footbed for shock absorption and comfort. A regular high heel has hard, flat surfaces, whereas ECCO SHAPE is constructed with fluid PU that follows the natural curves of the foot. With its uniquely rounded heel and footbed, the ECCO SHAPE lets the foot sit 15 mm closer to the ground than an ordinary high heel. What looks like an elegant 90 mm heel, feels like a comfortable 75 mm.

BENEFITS FOR CUSTOMERS
• Gives an illusion of a higher heel, making your leg look longer
• Easy to wear all day because it is light and flexible
