Lightweight, breathable, super-comfortable and totally waterproof – the Biom 2Go Tigolo GTX trainers are a match made in heaven for outdoor enthusiasts.
You wouldn’t think it but being barefoot is the optimal choice for walking and running. Obviously this isn’t possible on hard, rough surfaces, but that’s where ECCO’s Biom technology comes in. Using anatomically designed lasts, Biom shoes mimic the natural barefoot state, guiding the foot to move in the most comfortable and efficient way possible.
The low to the ground sole construction provides the most natural position for the foot for excellent ground adaptation, resulting in unrivalled support even in on hard surfaces, making these trainers ideal running or cycling shoes.
The sole of the Biom 2Go Tigolo GTX trainers use ECCO’s state of the art Fluidform™ technology, which works by directly injecting a liquid shock absorbent material into an anatomically designed mould that replicates the shape of the foot, resulting in a sole that when solidified is both flexible and hard-wearing but also curved to fit the foot exactly. This also results in a completely seamless finish as the sole bonds with the upper part of the shoe reducing wear and tear commonly associated with glued or sewn seams.
The perforated yak nubuck leather exterior helps to reduce weight, and when teamed with the waterproof Gore-Tex™ technology offers excellent breathability ensuring feet feel dry and comfortable even when their working their hardest.
The outsole uses ECCO’s Phorene™ – a lightweight sole that flexes under the foot as you move and offers excellent rebound and shock-absorbency for superior fit and comfort, whilst also being incredibly resilient.
ECCO is a Danish company, founded in 1963, by Karl Toosbuy. It’s still family-owned but has grown from one small factory to an international shoe company with over 17,000 employees. ECCO are unique in the footwear industry because they control their whole development process. From initial concepts created by ECCO’s own designers, to final manufacture using leather from ECCO tanneries, every stage is owned and run by ECCO. They share a lot of values with us and equally importantly, make great shoes for travelling. We have no hesitation in recommending ECCO shoes to our customers.
