With its own integrated production, ECCO is one of a handful of shoemakers in the world that design, produce and retail their footwear. Its leathers are carefully selected for quality, with beautiful grains and a supple finish for all-day comfort.

Like any sturdy Danish design label, ECCO incorporates brilliant and practical technology into its products, from the simple stuff like water-repellent laces to a fibre inlay sole design that improves air circulation and keeps you comfy.

FORM AND UTILITY

The beauty of leather is in its ability to age well. Grained calf leather in particular develops a patina through its exposure to the environment as well as the oils secreted by the body, retaining that sheen and finish over time. The Ely briefcase comes with multiple compartments for practical use, including a zippered back slot for quick retrieval of items. Nifty.
