The best kept secret in outdoor footwear
Ecco creates shoes with Receptor Technology for a variety of interests and activities!
Powered by Receptor Technonolgy
Receptor Technology is based on the promise that human motion is natural, dynamic and involves the whole body(Muscles, skeleton and ligaments) especially the nerve ending cells in the foot, the receptors.
- Ecco founded in 1963, invented Receptor technology in 2001 to enhance performance in its outdoor products.
'Serious performance and comfort'
Receptor is based on a strict set of scientific guidelines developed by Ecco, together with world leading biomechanics. Receptor is designed to mimic the motion of the human foot, giving the wearer serious performance and comfort through the three phases of the natural walking motion in a natural and easy way. For every step your foot takes three.
The Three Steps
Your barefoot strikes the ground at a 20 degree angle and so do Receptor Shoes. This angle gives you the momentum to follow through in the stride.
When the supporting foot holds the greatest weight burden and is in full ground contact, Receptor supports your foot to stabilize the whole body.
The sole flexes like the ball of your foot and gives you freedom when you push off the ground.
Ecco Yak leather is significantly stronger than cowhide and can be made thinner to achieve the same strength. This allows the Yak leather uppers to be lighter and more breathable.
Uppers made of two-toned waxy nubuck leather. GORE-TEX waterproof construction to ensure dry, comfortable feet in wet weather. Direct-injected PU midsole foam and roomy last provide outstanding walking comfort. Rubber outsole with a heel step for outstanding grip and traction with RECEPTOR technology. Imported.
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.

These Whistler GTX high boots are very water resistant. I've been in water up almost to the top of the boots without my feet getting wet. HOWEVER, if you get into water over the top of the boots, as I did once, your feet will get wet and the boots will take several days, close to a week in my case, to fully dry out. They seem to not only repel water, but to retain moisture if it gets in. I presume that's the Gore Tex.
These boots have something of a mud and dirt resistant finish. If they get muddy, I can stick a foot in a stream and they clean off. Or I just wipe them down with a damp towel after hiking.
Anyway at first they were as pretty stiff and hurt my feet but like any shoe they slowly wear in and became more comfortable. Sadly the tread on the boots wore down pretty fast but they were still holding up, they were still waterproof so hey I got what I needed and would still have a while to wear them down.
Well last week it was raining and I had a wet feeling in my shoe and when I got home I noticed the sole had split in two and water was getting in made my feet wet.
Again I know I probably put a lot more miles on my boots than most but if I'm paying almost $250 for some boots I'd like to think they'd last longer than 5 months before spliting like that.
