- 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.
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 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 cleatie-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 cleatie also protects the skin in the ankle area from rubbing against the leather edges.
