How To Care For Your ECCO Men's Sneakers
To keep your ECCO sneaker looking their best for longer the brand has created its own brand of Clean, Care and Protect shoe care, which we recommend to keep the premium leather or suede uppers in good condition.
The ECCO shoe care line includes brushes, shoe wipes and foam cleaners that are formulated to help remove ingrained dirt and tough stains, as well as a range of revive creams, waxes and conditioners to revitalize the shine and color. You can also help prevent watermarks and stains with a specially formulated repellent, that is also suitable for use with ECCO GORE-TEX® footwear.
- Are ECCO sneakers comfortable?
The brand’s sneakers are designed to follow the natural shape of the foot, for unmatched comfort with every step. Each pair also comes with FLUIDFORM™ Technology, which creates a remarkably soft, ultra-light midsole with dramatic rebound thanks to the resilient, shock-absorbent material that is injected directly into the shoe mould. This ensures ECCO sneakers are flexible and lightweight, and absorb shock as you walk for long-lasting comfort.
- Where are ECCO sneakers made?
ECCO started with a small shoe factory in Bredebro, Denmark and now has its own production facilities in Thailand, Indonesia, China, Denmark and Slovakia. ECCO leather tanneries are located in Holland, Thailand, Indonesia and China.
- Are ECCO sneakers waterproof?
Any styles that feature GORE-TEX technology, will be waterproof, durable and breathable. GORE-TEX technology is a membrane which when added to certain styles of sneakers, means water droplets cannot pass through to ensure feet remain protected in the wettest conditions. Some styles also feature the HYDROMAX® ECCO leather treatment, and although not fully waterproof, this still provides excellent water and perspiration resistance, without the use of a membrane. This helps keep leather uppers strong and durable, yet soft, supple, and breathable after repeated wetting and drying.
