ECCO was founded in Denmark by Karl Toosbuy in 1963, who was the first shoemaker to realise that shoes had to be made to fit the foot, and not the other way around. As a result, ECCO today is a world-leading brand of shoes combining style and comfort. This has been done by building its success on uncompromising quality, innovative technology and the design philosophy, “the shoe must follow the foot”.
ECCO shoes have a reputation for quality as they remain the only major shoe manufacturer to own and manage the entire production process from start to finish with its employees being the life force behind its products – designing, developing, producing and taking responsibility for every detail. No shoe leaves the design centre without being checked for lightness, softness, flexibility, comfort and fit.
ECCO Golf is a leader in the field with a foundation of more than 40 years of relentlessly studying the human foot. The technology that is put into place creates a golf shoe designed to let your foot stand, step, flex, stretch and breathe. This coincides with ECCO’s belief that if you free your sole, your game will follow. ECCO’s Golf shoes have a double-layer inlay sole that ingenuously absorbs heel force, reducing the impact felt by your knees, hip and back. ECCO shoes are made not only to look and feel good but to last you until the 18th hole.
Comfort on the golf course is critical to enjoying your time playing. And when you think about it the one element that is involved in every shot you play, every step you take is the footwear.
If you have comfortable golf shoes then you feel like you are walking on air. ECCO shoes provided this for us (I can’t believe how comfortable these shoes are).
In fact there were so comfortable that we ended up wearing them off the golf course (the tread on the shoes meant they were great on course for traction but equally as good off course). Oh and they were very fashionable also!
