Who should buy the Ecco Yucatan
The Ecco Yucatan sandal still packs robust enough features to help users perform well on the trail. It is a solid option if you:
- Prefer a hiking sandal that is crafted lightweight and supportive in order to make adventures—whether on or off the trail—as pleasant of an experience as possible.
- Prefer a hiking sandal that provides an extra cushy footbed.
- Prefer a hiking sandal that allows hikers to make comfortable strides and perform better toe-offs on flatter surfaces.
Provides slip and skid resistance
The Yucatan is capable of adhering to the slippery and challenging surfaces of the trail thanks to its heavy-duty outsole. It is made completely of rubber—a material that is sticky by nature. It is laden with a healthy number of aggressively shaped lugs (also known as studs) to give users adequate slip and skid resistance at practically every angle.
Offers extra descent control and stopping power
It comes built with ridge-like grooves at the rear and a heel brake for extra descent control and stopping power.
Sturdy yet cushy midsole
What gives users enough balance over uneven terrain and what mitigates shock on ground contact is the Ecco Yucatan’s sturdy yet cushy midsole. It is entirely made of polyurethane (PU), a kind of material widely known for its lightness, durability, and high abrasion resistance. As such, this stabilizing platform gets to endure stress and abuse with adequate effectiveness.
For additional underfoot comfort, the Yucatan comes with an extra-cushy dual-density footbed. It is crafted with the same contoured medial section as the midsole to give trail enthusiasts added arch support. Its surface has a cloth-like texture and its borders have a cratered design to help prevent underfoot slippage.
The Ecco Yucatan has a strappy stitched-on upper made of nubuck leather. It has a liner made of a soft material, giving users a nice and comfy in-shoe experience. Its straps are engineered with hook and loop fasteners, making them conveniently adjustable. These straps pass through connecting joints made of a material closely resembling hard plastic.
