The Ecco Collin Perf Slip On can be found in men’s sizes, from 5/5.5-14/14.5 US in medium width. It fits true to size, as confirmed by several wearers. A robust fit can be anticipated from the sneaker’s leather upper, while its slip-on function lets the user slip the shoe on and off quickly. It's also a low-top footwear, which means that the ankle is unrestricted.
Many colorway options are available for the Ecco Collin Perf Slip On. These are the Black, Marine, Amber, Titanium, Wild Dove, Cognac, Bison/Cognac, Dark Clay, and Moonless. All of these versions feature earthy palettes that lend a classic look to the leather upper of the sneaker. As such, it should be easy to dress the sneaker up or down for different occasions. Shorts or jeans paired with the model are perfect for any casual day, while slacks, pants, or chinos will go well with it for more formal events.
Perforated detailing on the Ecco Collin Perf Slip On’s soft leather upper provides a well-ventilated feel. Its leather is also supple enough to allow natural foot movement. There is elastic goring at the sides of the shoe to help in easily slipping the foot in and out. Complementing the sneaker’s simple style is the plain white midsole. The Ecco label is found on the heel.
Ecco was established in 1963 by the Danish entrepreneur Karl Toosbuy. The company started out with a small factory in the rural town of Bredebro in the southern countryside. It was there that Toosbuy and his wife, Birte, along with a small team, began to work long hours, learning how to perfect the manufacturing process through trial and error. The first notable success came in the late 1970s when the company came up with the shoe named the “Joke.”
From then on, more successes came as the brand released one revolutionary model after another. By the 1980s, Ecco was able to expand its business operations internationally. The brand’s commitment to quality is so great that the team decided that owning all aspects of manufacturing would be best. In the year 2000, the company was able to achieve this, controlling and maintaining every step of production all the way to the retailing level.
Even as Ecco continued to expand, the label’s shoes still retained the quality and simple styles that they have been known for. Many models from the brand’s lineup have become favorites not only for their timeless appeal but their reliability as well. One sneaker that perfectly encapsulates this is the low-top Ecco Collin Perf Slip On.
As the name implies, the shoe’s upper is perforated to provide ventilation as well as an eye-catching style. It’s also made to be lightweight and supportive for different everyday activities. Furthermore, it has a classic leather flair in earth colors that make it appropriate for both laidback and semi-formal occasions. In short, it’s a well-suited sneaker for today’s modern lifestyle.
