History of the ECCO Soft 8 High Top

ECCO is a European company that was founded by Karl Toosbuy in Denmark in 1963. Karl and his Birthe assembled a team and started the production in a small building factory. Like any other starting company, they encountered several drawbacks and almost gave up. They worked long hours and at some point doubted themselves whether they were going to succeed or not.
