High-quality materials are a must
The human foot, its anatomy and movement are at the centre of attention here, as ECCO is all about fitting the shoe perfectly to the wearer, and not the other way around. A simple idea, which will only be rewarded with long-term success if the production department values passion and an eye for detail just as much as intensive research and extraordinary material quality.
That is what ECCO stands for as the only shoe manufacturers in the world with on-site tanneries and cobblers. The saying goes, that the quality of a shoe directly correlates to the materials used to make them. That is why at ECCO the design, development, production and sales are all done under one roof, which by the way, is to this day still a family run operation and also to this day still strives to achieve the same big goal: making the best shoes in the world.
