Design: ECCO In-House Design Team
A highly technical ECCO sneaker in a minimalist aesthetic for urban use. The BIOM® technology was originally engineered for triathletes, built upon the principles of natural motion. The new BIOM 2.0 uses these same principles and brings them to a design that is as futuristic as the technology itself. The revolutionary asymmetric midsole features PU side wings that hold the midfoot in place to decrease the amount of sideways movement, while the wrap-around design secures the heel to further support the foot.
Meanwhile, by allowing space in the midsole for the shoe to bend, it maintains full flexibility. The design comes with a rubber outsole for grip that makes full contact with the ground, allowing it to be used for urban walking, light running and in gyms. To complement the futuristic look of the sole, the upper is made from a breathable neoprene-like sock-construction, with leather detailing and a wide-lacing closure to create the optimal fit in a minimalist aesthetic.
