With the ECCO EXOSTRIKE DYNEEMA Edition, Danish shoe manufacturer ECCO presents a cutting-edge footwear innovation that is pushing the boundaries of premium leather treatment. Leading the trail of an outdoor boot through the minimalistic realms of high-end modernism, the ECCO experts locked theirselves into the lab to manufacture an upscale masterpiece of material science. The EXOSTRIKE isn’t just a lazy sneakerboot hybrid that was mashed together for a lack of better ideas. The streetstyle-inspired silhouette actually combines the perks of hiking boots with those of an athletic shoe.
By bringing in DYNEEMA® BONDED Leather by ECCO, the Danish imprint sources the strongest fiber in the world, usually processed in work gear, extreme sports or even bulletproof vests. Combined with ECCO’s unparalleled expertise in tanning treatment, the EXOSTRIKE’s luxurious leather upper is paper-thin, beautifully soft, super-light and stronger than anything currently on the market.
In addition to that, ECCO infused the EXOSTRIKE’s bottom section with yet another innovation that banks on feathery substance just as much as it does on durability. PHORENE™ does exactly that, clocking in at 33 % less the weight of the brand’s usual MS.PU while absorbing twice the shock and returning 50 percent the energy of it. On top of that, a PROSOMA external heel guard adds support and perfectly blends in with the shoe’s cutting-edge aesthetics.
Finished in monochromatic ‘Black’ and ‘Wild Dove’ colorways, the ECCO EXOSTRIKE maintains its focus on the essentials. From the wilderness all the way to vibrant cityscapes, this avant-gardist innovation shows just how groundbreaking a lightweight can be.
