The Ecco Soft 7 Sneaker is available in women's and men's variations. It has a supple leather upper that takes the shape of the foot, providing comfort. Also, the upper offers sufficient foot breathability. The lining is made of leather material that gives additional breathability. 

Although different technologies are infused on sneakers, combining style and comfort can be an unparalleled quality when on the hunt for the next shoe. The Ecco Soft 7 Sneakers resonate simplicity with its premium leather or suede upper and white rubber outsole.

Because of its minimalist and uncomplicated design, these sneakers are extremely versatile and pairs well with varying outfits. As these are airport-friendly, users not only can take them in different places but on varying occasions as well. With a broad choice of colorways available, men and women can pair them with almost any outfit imaginable.

Despite the simple aesthetics, the features of the Ecco Soft 7 Sneaker remain uncompromised. The low-top silhouette of these sneakers is anatomically and accurately designed to amplify all-day comfort. Moreover, because it is infused with the brand's Comfort Fibre System, an innovative sock liner that is composed of vegetable-tanned leather and recyclable materials, there is extra cushioning on the insole that is anti-bacterial and moisture-absorbing.

Because of his strong background in making shoes, Karl Toosbuy had a dream of running his shoe factory. In 1963, his vision came to life when he founded the Ecco brand in Denmark. The initial production of the brand was exclusively offered for women and in limited amounts.

The company experienced a hard start. However, it wasn't until in the 1970s that the company found its big brand when designer  Ejnar Truelsen, created the model "Joke," which pioneered the brand's other successful sneakers. By 1974, the brand opened its business internationally and established different factories across Asia, Canada, Europe, and the United States.

Over the years, Ecco garnered the reputation of producing high-quality leather products like the Ecco Soft 7 Sneaker. With people attesting to its performance and quality, it also has lived up to the philosophy of creating shoes that fit the feet instead of the opposite.

  • The outsole of the Ecco Soft 7 Sneaker is made of molded PU/TPU.
  • These sneakers are available for $150 for men's and women's versions.
