Danish shoemaker Karl Toosbuy in Bredebro, Denmark founded Ecco in 1963. One of the major components to being Ecco, is that it is the only major shoe company in the world to own and manage every step of the production process, this includes-from the tannery to the consumer. Toosbuy had brought about a new thought to footwear, being tired of having his feet mold to his shoes, he charged that the foot should lead the shoe.
By 1978 the company had made a huge breakthrough with widespread recognition of its comfort footwear. Moving through the 80’s the company expanded operations internationally, and early on by 1982 sales reaching over 1 million pairs annually. By 1990 additions to the Ecco collection included Kids, Golf and Performance shoes, much can still be found today.
The Men’s Ecco Biom Walk 1.3 is one of those shoes that have pulled through to showcase an elite walking shoe. The Yak leather uppers offer superb strength with excellent breathability and a nice snug fit. The inner provides an anatomically shaped last for an excellent fit with added comfort. The most noticeable part of the shoe is the midsole, which has a close-to-the-ground biomechanical midsole construction is also a direct-injected polyurethane midsole. This sneaker provides for a more natural walking motion for the fitness to casual walker. Lastly, the multipurpose rubber outsole with rubber placed in strategic areas of high wear is perfect for grip and traction without losing flexibility in the forefoot.
Drew from Tennessee, “This shoe is absolutely amazing. I have had problems with heel and arch pain in both of my feet for a while now with other shoes, that even started to hurt my back eventually, and I did a good amount of searching for a shoe that could eliminate most of the pain and fatigue I was feeling while at work. These are the best shoes I’ve come across for walking on concrete floors. I’m sure the Biom has done a great deal they’ve helped me tremendously.”
Dick, Illinois, “I bought these shoes for a European walking trip. They are perfect. Light weight, comfortable, great support, and attractive.”
Tom, Ohio “I use this as an everyday shoe, and primarily for walking. I have had many “pricey” walking shoes, and these are by far the best. The Biom 1.3 are extremely comfortable and can be worn for long periods of time. I have problems taking them off because they are so enjoyable to wear!! I have had some tendonitis and other minor foot ailments that are GONE since wearing this shoe. They are somewhat higher in price, but well worth the money…..”
