Things the Tredtray puts on the adventurer’s table

Where trails needing dependable hiking shoes are concerned, the Ecco Tredtray is a great companion to bring along. Besides looking quite dapper in it, the following are the things you can expect from it:

Improved descent control. Aside from its toothy lugs, its aggressive heel brake will give you extra bite during downhill traversals.

Enhanced rearfoot security. With its rigid back-part overlay, your heel will remain in place on uneven rocky terrain.

Easier toe offs. The Tredtray’s rockered forefoot will boost your stride, particularly over packed and level surfaces.

Waterproofing minus the membrane. Yes, Ecco’s HM100K Technology will give you water protection through puddles and in light to moderate rainfall. All that with just a specially tanned leather—no added weight of an extra liner.

Ecco Tredtray upkeep

They say that if you take care of nature, it will take care of you. Arguably, the same can be said of Ecco hikers, so consider the following to extend the lifespan of your Tredtray.

  • After use, gently brush debris off its leather upper with a soft-bristled brush. Also, rid its outsole of mud and dirt.
  • Although the Tredtray is waterproof, it is in your best interest to wipe its leather upper dry after every hike. Doing this will prevent mold buildup, and in turn, wear and tear.
  • If you plan not to use the Tredtray for weeks, keep it somewhere dry and cool. Slip in a packet of silica gel where you plan to store it to keep moisture at bay.
  • You may apply some leather conditioner on the shoe’s upper to increase its waterproofing.
