Versatile style from a new ECCO office hybrid
ECCO ST.1 HYBRID
Elegantly blurring the line between formal and casual, or between a traditional aesthetic and a modern, more relaxed style, is a new office hybrid from ECCO that fuses a classic dress shoe upper with an athleisure sole.
Such a fresh, bold combination puts the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID at the forefront of a trend for formal uppers with sneaker platforms that offer contemporary, fashion-forward men a wide range of looks and wearing moments.
In the Danish brand’s first office hybrid, which brings a completely new silhouette to the Formal Men’s collection, you can step confidently in either a casual or formal direction. Mix the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID with a sleek suit and you will make your office look more relaxed, or combine the shoe with a pair of skinny dark jeans and a T-shirt, or with chinos or even shorts, and you will give your casual meeting outfit a formal twist.
With its blend of rich ECCO leathers and iconic detailing, this hybrid will appeal to stylish, contemporary men who appreciate how it offers multiple wearing moments. From a coffee date to a summer wedding, from the office to a restaurant, and from the weekday commute to a BBQ on the weekend, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID can be worn almost anywhere.
And however formal or casual you care to be in your ECCO ST.1 HYBRID, you are assured of innovative lightweight comfort. Wearing the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID, you will experience a level of ease that is unprecedented in a shoe with a formal leather upper, with the three-component P.U platform featuring a number of the company’s innovations.
The SHOCKTHRU SD.PU cushion core insert in the sole provides significant shock absorption and the technology, which also offers rebound, has been combined with the anatomical VITRUS™ last, which creates a soft, cupped heel while enhancing both the stability and fit.
Another of the innovations is inside the midsole, with the revolutionary PHORENE™ the softest and most shock absorbent P.U ECCO has used yet – a breakthrough for ECCO FLUIDFORM™ Direct Comfort Technology.
Developed over three decades, FLUIDFORM™ is the brand’s proprietary technology that allows the midsole and outsole to form around the shape of its anatomical lasts. This delivers the signature ECCO comfort that balances cushioning and rebound, while creating an integral, durable bond between the sole and the upper without the compromises associated with stitching and gluing. For durability and comfort, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID has a T.PU outsole, while the platform is brought together with a stylish formal leather welt.
For a strong, masculine and hand-finished aesthetic, the ECCO ST.1 HYBRID is crafted from a range of rich ECCO leathers and premium suedes.
