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 Transit Slip On
- The Ecco Transit Slip On was created for men on the go. It fuses a casual upper style with a performing sporty sole to support the wearer throughout the day. It is designed as a slip-on walking shoe to accommodate those who are not into lacing up their shoes.
- The upper unit employs nubuck leather for a soft yet supportive foothold. The material is perforated to keep the insides ventilated.
- A full-length polyurethane (PU) unit makes up both the midsole and the outsole of the shoe. It is meant to provide lightweight cushioning while also being resistant to abrasion at the bottom part.
Ecco Transit Slip On size and fit
The Ecco Transit Slip On can be purchased in full and half men’s sizes from US 6 to 13.5. Widthwise, it comes in a standard D - Medium profile. The collar features a bootie design with pull tabs to ease the on-and-off action and help in keeping the footwear securely around the ankle. The gore inserts on the sides of the upper stretch when the shoe is put on or taken off.
The outsole unit of the Transit Slip On is a continuation of its PU midsole. It utilizes geometrical lugs which have a textured nature to provide traction on various urban surfaces.
A full-length injected PU component works as a midsole of the trainer. It is created to be lightweight and flexible to promote natural foot movement. At the same time, it absorbs the repetitive impact associated with walking.
A portion of the PU slightly protrudes up around the rearfoot. It helps in stabilizing the heel during the movement.
Enhancing underfoot comfort is a thin leather-covered insole. Its bottom side is made of the brand’s proprietary Comfort Fibre System (ECFS) which ensures air circulation and a pleasant in-shoe climate. The insole is removable and can be easily taken out to give room for custom orthotics.
The upper of the Ecco Transit Slip On makes use of a supple nubuck leather. It is meant to embrace the foot firmly but not in a binding way. The leather on the front panel is perforated to allow air inside the foot chamber.
Inside the shoe is a moisture-absorbent textile lining. It contributes to the overall breathability of the footwear. The lining extends past the collar to form a bootie-like construction. Its soft and pliable nature allows it to stretch when the trainer is put on or removed. The pull loops are attached at the front and the back to assist the process. The bootie also protects the skin in the ankle area from rubbing against the leather edges.
