A Fit Like No Other
ECCO designs footwear to meet your needs, whether you're taking the stairs, walking around the city all day, or scrambling over rocky slopes; ECCO delivers superior fit, durability, support and flexibility. Our advanced construction techniques and continuous exploration in materials science add up to comfort you can count on. You'll notice the difference immediately - and at the end of an intense hike or after walking a dozen blocks uptown, you'll continue to appreciate the difference of ECCO.
The ECCO Freedom Fit
Conventional shoes fit across your feet at the toes, restricting the way your toes spread as you walk. ECCO's Freedom Fit is different; it offers a roomy toe box and fits more narrowly from heel to instep, suitable for most widths. Toes spread naturally to support your weight and foster a more comfortable walking experience. Feet of nearly all widths feel good in ECCO, comfort straight from the box.
ECCO is one of the very few manufacturers to have its own tanneries where it processes its own hides and leathers. This ensures that ECCO has the highest quality control from raw materials to finished shoe. The various highly advanced processes and treatments, to which the hides are subjected, always reflect the look and specific function of the product. This ensures a perfect match of form and function.
ECCO Comfort Fibre System
This exclusive inlay sole is designed with a vegetable-tanned leather surface. Underneath is a soft layer of unique, moisture-absorbent foam; treated with AGION for long-lasting and effective control of bacteria and odor. The pumping effect of the foam is activated as you walk- pushing air through tiny holes in the lining to create comfortable air circulation around the foot.
Polyurethane (or PU) is a manufactured material that can take the place of rubber. PU is the longest lasting material for outsoles; often lasting 2-3 times longer than traditional materials. In an ECCO shoe, PU is made to be flexible and shock absorbing; requiring little to no break-in period and allowing the wearer to be comfortable longer. PU also retains is shape or 'Memory' longer, allowing the wearer the same support from the first day to the last in their ECCO shoes.
These ECCO shoes have a nylon or TPU shank allowing the wearer to breeze through some security checkpoints without removing their shoes.
Direct Injection Process
Direct inject Production or DIP is a highly specialized process in which ECCO is a world leader. This discipline represents the core competence of ECCO sole technology- and one of the secrets behind the special and famous 'instant fit' of an ECCO shoe.
It’s a process where the upper is placed into the mould, and liquid polyurethane (PU) is injected to shape the and anatomically correct midsole and / or outsole. Robot precision ensures a consistent quality regardless of the production location.

ECCO is a European shoe company founded in Denmark in 1963. Today they own and operate factories throughout Europe and Asia. They produce all the leather used in making Ecco shoes, taking measures to protect the environment at the same time. Their sole aim is to make a comfortable walking shoe.

If you decide to get a different model, I can speak from experience that the shoes with the tan leather interior are MUCH more comfortable and wears better than the ones with the black fabric. The leather lined ones tend to cost a bit more, but it is well worth it.
I have never before been able to order shoes on-line as it has always been a challenge and fiasco to find ones that fit well and are comfortable. It is so nice knowing that after trying three different lines of shoes in the Ecco family I can now continue to do just that. Their sizing is consistent as is their quality and comfort.
Price may seem high but I can tell you as someone who spends many hours a week in dress shoes (standing and walking) there is no substitute for a quality comfortable shoe - Ecco certainly fills that requirement nicely for me!
As a bonus, the rubberized soles make this a great performance shoe, both on stage and in backstage tech work!
I've gotten many compliments on how good these shoes look! Because of the small break in the rubber, giving 4 stars.
