Updates to Ecco Terra Evo GTX Mid
- The Ecco Terra Evo GTX Mid is sturdily built for day hikes on tough trails in trying conditions. Its ability to keep the foot nice and dry through the damp and the wet is thanks to Gore-Tex’s waterproofing technology.
- Giving users enough stability on the trail is the boot’s cushy midsole made of polyurethane (PU). When it comes to traction, on the other hand, wearers have the boot’s lugged rubber outsole to thank.
Ecco Terra Evo GTX Mid size and fit
Ecco’s Terra Evo GTX Mid is a mid-cut hiking gear specially engineered for male adventurers. Its generally true-to-size fit is intended for those with regular-width feet. It comes in a collection of sizes. Users are given the freedom to adjust the boot’s volume for a precise fit thanks to the footwear’s quick lacing system. Its width may be slightly expanded by removing the boot’s inlay sole.
Thanks to its hardwearing rubber outsole, this Ecco gear enables hikers to cover ground with enough slip and skid resistance. It features irregularly shaped lugs that produce multi-directional traction. It is made with the Receptor technology, granting it extra flexibility and stability, giving users that sense of oneness to the ground as a result.
For underfoot cushioning and terrain stability, the Terra Evo GTX Mid is equipped with a PU midsole. Its heel has enough thickness for shock absorption. For additional comfort, this cushy foam works hand in hand with the boot’s removable footbed which Ecco refers to as “inlay sole.”
Two kinds of leather make up the majority of the Terra Evo GTX Mid’s upper: yak and nubuck. Its seams are reinforced and sealed with double stitching. To make it properly protected from all things wet, Ecco engineers imbued its liner with Gore-Tex. It also comes with collar padding for extra comfort and an external heel counter for additional rearfoot support.
Its lace-up closure sports a modern look thanks to its metallic eyelets. The top set of these eyelets has an open design which helps wearers speed their way through the lacing process.
