With Fluidform™ technology providing anatomical comfort, a VIRTUS™ shank providing unrivalled support and hand-finished aniline –dyed full-grain leather providing a lustre finish, the Vitrus III dress shoes are an elegant choice for any occasion.
The sole of the Vitrus III shoes 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 VIRTUS shank is the integral component of the Vitrus III shoe. Located between the insole and the outsole is works harmoniously with the Fluidform™ technology. The shank is inserted into the mould to create a one-of –a-kind rounded footbed that supports the natural shape of the foot improving stability and comfort.
The premium 100% leather exterior – hand-finished by ECCO’s own tanners – adds lustre and depth, and provides great durability. The inlay leather covered sole is moulded for optimum anatomical comfort.
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.
