Ecco Soft 5 Sneaker History

Ecco was founded by Karl Toosbuy in Denmark in 1963. Even when Toosbuy was young, he already got his training in shoemaking and began to dream of having his shoe company. Before Toosbuy founded the company, he already had a stable job as a manager in a shoe factory in Copenhagen. However, he gave up his job and sold his house and car to fulfill his dream. This was the time that he, along with his wife, then decided to move to the countryside.

The Toosbuys organized a team and started producing shoes that meet their standard. They live by their principle which is to make a shoe that must fit the foot and not the other way around. They released anatomical footwear, providing comfort to men and women of all ages. Like other starting small companies and businesses, the Toosbuys and their team had experienced several impediments. It even came to the point that they almost gave up. They continued to persevere, working longer hours than usual to reach the success that they aimed for.

At last, all their hard works paid off. The company reached its first breakthrough when they released the shoe known as “Joke” in the late 1970s. Finally, Ecco has grown and continued to launch different innovative footwear that will meet the style that the people want and need without compromising comfort.

Currently, Ecco shoes are among the go-to brands of shoppers who are looking for stylish, durable and comfortable footwear. The brand still remains true to its principle in delivering that anatomical shoe that takes the shape of the foot of men and women of all ages. Not only that, but the company also offers durable footwear. As a matter of fact, to maintain the quality of the leather,  they own and operate their tanneries and factories in Europe as well as all throughout Asia.

One of the innovative footwear that the brand has released is the low-top Ecco Soft 5 sneaker. It has a combination of mesh and leather uppers that provide foot breathability. It is lightweight and supportive. With the ECFS footbed, it is also comfortable and suitable for the all-day walk. With a sporty silhouette, this shoe can be a good match to a number of casual and semi-casual outfits. It has a dual-component rubber outsole that ensures stability as well as an outstanding grip.

  • It has a breathable textile lining, ensuring an optimal foot climate.
  • The shoe has a pull tab on the tongue to help the foot to fit in.
