Since the beginning in 1963 Ecco has strived to develop innovative designs and products without compromising comfort and quality. This concept lies at the heart of every pair of shoes made by Ecco. They do not aspire to be the biggest, just the best. Ecco has pioneered the special direct injection technology in all of their shoes. Direct injection technology is where the upper part of the shoe (the upper, normally made out of leather) is placed in a mould before the sole is sprayed directly onto the upper part under high pressure. Using this unique construction gives Ecco shoes the aptitude to be lightweight and flexible, while still maintaining quality and durability. Ecco is based in Denmark and all of their shoes are made in Euro sizes and are only made in Medium widths.
