Excellent traction to tackle tricky trails

With the Espinho GTX’s rubber outsole, hikers are given enough traction to tackle tricky trails. Its ability to claw into most types of outdoor surfaces is inextricably linked to its low-profile lugs.

Excellent grip during lateral maneuvers

These triangular protrusions are also present at the sides of the outsole’s arch, providing ample grip during lateral maneuvers.

Comfortable cushioning and ground stability

This shoe’s direct-injected PU foam for a midsole provides wearers with the right amount of cushioning and ground stability on the trail. Ecco engineers gave it enough thickness and springiness to grant day hikers ample rebound and shock absorption with every step.

Secure and personalized lockdown

The Espinho GTX encloses the foot in its oiled yak nubuck leather upper. Its Gore-Tex liner makes the footwear watertight. A secure and personalized lockdown comes by means of the shoe’s quick lacing system which is made up of elastic pull cords and a set of fabric lace loops.
