For more than 48 years the companies aim has been to design and produce high quality comfortable and casual fashion
shoes of the very best
that come with the perfect luxury

ECCO is a family run, family owned and financially robust company who does not make decisions in the short term, count costs in regards to the materials used or compromise on quality. They simply deliver luxury fashion
shoes of perfect quality and control all aspects of their business. This means that ECCO designers develop all collections the company sells and use tanneries which are owned by ECCO, along with designing and producing only the very best
shoes in their own factories to sell in ECCO stores which are located around the world, along with selling in some of the more upmarket retailers. The brand name have one goal in mind and that is to deliver quality fashion
footwear that their customers want.
The dream of Karl Toosbuy, founder of the company, began many years ago with an ambition to own a shoe factory and run his own fashion
business. Gradually, after rising through the ranks in his early 30s he began managing a company in Copenhagen while remaining committed to his goal. Along with a very small team Toosbury eventually began to develop a range of luxury fashion
footwear that was very innovative and introduced some of the very best
pioneering production methods into shoe making. He was to become the first ever maker of shoes to realize that shoes had to be made to fit the foot perfectly.
From this ECCO shoes were launched during the 70s and they became an instant success among those looking for luxury fashion
footwear that fit perfectly. Toosbuy also knew that production was needed on the larger scale and developed high tech machinery and moved production in order to remain competitive. Toosbury has always challenged himself, along with his staff and set himself tasks for ensuring that things were done better and differently by welcoming new ideas and pressing for improvements.
Today ECCO is a culture among fashion
for shoes and the quality of their shoes has never changed, ensuring that the dreams and ambitions of Toosbuy continue on.
