All materials and leathers are controlled and tested to guarantee that they meet ECCO’s quality requirements before entering production. Throughout the shoe production process, quality inspectors control every aspect - from stitching accuracy to leather thickness - to ensure high quality and uniform products.
But ECCO shoes are not tested by machines alone. The shoes are also tested on human feet because comfort cannot simply be measured. ECCO employees test the shoes' wear, comfort and durability in real-world conditions - in their daily activities and exercise. Even ECCO Kids’ shoes are tested in the real environment of kindergartens and schools.
