Ecco has been making some of the best golf shoes on the market for a long time now and has been at the forefront of golf shoe innovation for many years, manufacturing some of the most comfortable products in what is now an extremely crowded marketplace.
In essence, yak hide is a multi-seasonal leather consisting of a thin, compact woven collagen fibre and closed fine grain. These unique characteristics protect the yak in the warm summers and cold winters.
Known for their comfort, support and style, it comes as no surprise that ECCO shoes are often recommended by podiatrists. The built in support around the arch and the heel, along with innovative design and materials make their shoes a very strong contender and we very often recommend a them to our customers in stores.
BIOM HYBRID 3 MENS & LADIES Uppers are crafted from ECCO YAK leather, making this an extremely breathable and hardy shoe, while the GORE-TEX construction ensures it is 100 % waterproof .
Today, unique to the industry, ECCO owns and operates 4 tanneries – and in addition to supplying our own shoe production, ECCO leather is sought out by leading luxury brands for its naturalness, softness and beauty; and for ECCO’s corporate responsibility standards.
But if you buy the Ecco, you just might get 2-7 years out of them. And if you get a welted shoe like Meermin, and you treat it well, you could get 5-10 years out of them. But again, it is all greatly dependent on how often you wear them, how often you polish them and if you use shoe trees, shoe horns etc.
From rawhides to final shoes . This also enables us to produce the majority of leathers that we are using; Ecco Leather produces approximately 97% of the leathers that we use in our shoes . The final 3% is suede or patent leathers , which change from season to season as they are very connected to seasonal trends.
Every week, a little Smooth Leather Care Cream from the tube should be applied with a soft cloth to keep the leather from drying out. After this, Universal Waterproofing Spray should be applied to protect it, so that water and stains are repelled.
Yak leather can be cleaned by first moistening a lint-free cloth and gently rubbing it over the soiled area. Microfiber cloths work well for this. If the dirt is deeper or you want to thoroughly clean the leather , try using a dedicated leather cleaner .
Ecco Shoes have removable footbeds in most styles which allows you to use your own orthotics. Built-in arch and heel reinforcements provide superior support and comfort with the optimum fit. The lightweight, durable construction has PU outer soles which will absorb impact with each step.
Comfortable without socks . Mine are a tiny bit snug with socks but I normally wear them without. I’ve been wearing Ecco shoes of all types for many years and have rarely been disappointed with them.
Production. ECCO owns tanneries in the Netherlands, Thailand, Indonesia and China . Approximately 98% of ECCO’s shoes are produced in its own shoe factories in Portugal, Slovakia, Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and China , and some under licence in India.
