ECCO has a real passion when it comes to making exceptional shoes and sandals.
Unique to many other industries, ECCO makes their leather at their tanneries and produces shoes at their factories only.
Thus they are one of the Top Comforta, Casual, and outdoor Footwear and Sandal brands known today.
ECCO ® – The History
ECCO was established in 1963 by a man named Karl Toosbuy in a small town called Bredebro in Southern Denmark.
The Company expanded its operations internationally by 1982 to accommodate increasing demands.
ECCO today has tanneries for its leather in the Netherlands, Thailand, Indonesia, and China. Their tanneries are among the leading leather manufacturers for fashion, sports, and car industries globally.
Ecco Shoes and goods are sold in over 99 countries today.
What Makes ECCO Sandals so Impressive
There are a Few Technologies that ECCO uses which makes their footwear and Sandals simply outstanding;
- Biomechanical Technology – The BIOM Natural Motion Technology they use in their shoes’ footbed is based on your foot’s natural movement. This design encourages the muscles and ligaments in your legs and feet to strengthen with every step you take.
- FluidForm Technology – The FLUID FORM technology used in many sandal models uses an injected resilient shock-absorbent material in the footbed that bonds instantly to the sole without any seams. The technology cradles your feet, is flexible, and absorbs shock.
- Hydromax Leather Technology -The HYDROMAX leather treatment used in leather manufacturing by ECCO prevents the leather from hardening after getting wet. Drying repeatedly improves durability and water resistance.
- Leathers – Leather used in most ECCO sandal models is either CALF LEATHER, which has a refined grain and smooth appeal or YAK LEATHER, which is ideal for extreme conditions and offers excellent durability and breathability. NUBUCK LEATHER is also used, which has a more velvety feel and is available in more Vibrant color selections.
- Fit – The unique ECCO SHAPE in the footbed is constructed with fluid PU that follows the natural curves of your foot. The uniquely rounded heel and footbed allow the foot to sit 15 mm closer to the ground than an ordinary higher heel. So what looks like an elegant 90 mm heel will feel like a comfortable 75 mm heel.

- Footbed and Midsole -Most models have a direct-injected PU foam midsole or an EVA footbed with a microfiber cover for premium cushioning or the FLUID FORM direct injection process Eva insole that is contoured for better support.
