Good to know
Stability and motion control add-ons are uncommon for workout shoes and are never present in CrossFit or weightlifting footwear. They are mostly found in walking shoes where the gait is easier to correct.
Training footwear typically weighs between 200g and 300g per shoe to accommodate agile workouts. Minimalist trainers go as low as 150g, while weightlifting shoes can go as high as 500g.

Updates to Ecco Terrawalk
- The Ecco Terrawalk is a sporty-casual walking shoe created for both the asphalt and the rocky and uneven trails. It is meant to withstand the harsh elements of the environment with its durable leather upper that is mixed with fabric for a cozy and breathable sensation.
- It boasts of the proprietary Freedom Fit, which is designed to follow the shape of the heel to the instep, instead of the customary basis of the ball of the foot. This system allows more room for toe splaying and flexing and supports the natural motion of walking. It is also claimed to improve blood flow and lessen foot fatigue.
- The inlay sole is anatomically shaped. Its structure produces a soft and natural motion sensation that allows the user to be on their feet for prolonged periods.
- The outsole is made from direct-injected, two-component TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) and PU (polyurethane). It lends softness and flexibility to the base while enhancing traction on a wide variety of surfaces.
Ecco Terrawalk size and fit
The Ecco Terrawalk has two versions created for men and women. It has an extensive range of available sizes, running the full gamut of US 6 to 13.5 for men and 4 to 12. 5 for women. It is made for males and females with standard width profiles, which are D - Medium and B - Medium respectively.
This model employs its proprietary Freedom Fit system which follows the dimensions of the heel to the instep, unlike typical shoes which use the ball of the foot as the basis for its fit. This structure is meant to give more room for the toes to splay and to support the natural walking motion. It aims to increase blood flow and reduce foot fatigue as well.
The Ecco Terrawalk displays a strong grip on different types of surfaces due to its direct-injected, two-component PU and TPU bottom. It is also soft and flexible to promote natural flexion.
The Ecco Terrawalk has its bottom interiors lined with a foot-shaped inlay sole. It creates a soft and natural feel for the underfoot to enable the wearer to be on their feet for long periods.
A mix of durable leather and fabric makes up the composition of the Ecco Terrawalk’s upper. Blended together, these components form a patchwork design to enhance the shoe’s athletic style. Despite the thickness of the leather, the perforations allow the air to circulate throughout the foot chamber.
The padded heel and tongue serve to provide additional comfort to the skin. It also makes the footwear fit more snugly to prevent accidental shoe removal.
The foot is locked down by a lace-up closure. It also pulls the overlays tighter, therefore improving lateral support.
