Which type of ECCO runner are you?

ECCO Run

The how and wherefore of what drives us to exercise in the way that we do is fascinating stuff.

Everyone gets something different from exercise, for some it’s part of a journey towards a longer term physical goal, for others the goal is the journey itself as exercise provides the escape or release they desire.

Bbc.co.uk recently posted an article categorising their 10 types of runner. A brilliant article that focuses on the perspective of individual runners, rather than the perspective of brands or sports psychologists.

Read the full article here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-25263401

The classic club runner, the weight loss runner, the ultrarunner, the mood-boosting runner, the awareness raising runner, the barefoot runner, the early morning runner, the retired professional, the fell runner and the lapsed runner, all runners tell their story – what drove them to start running and what keeps them running.

Whether you’re a runner or not, no matter what your sport of choice, there’s inspiration in other’s stories of what inspires them.

Find your inspiration and get moving in 2014. Check out our great range of ECCO men’s trainers, ECCO women’s trainers, ECCO BIOM for men and ECCO BIOM for women and find yet more inspiration in a great pair of trainers right here at ECCO Shoes.

Ecco: fit for the challenge

Eddie Izzard drinking pints in his running shorts…

David Walliams picking pond weed off his swimming cap…

These are images ingrained in our minds and are synonymous with the spirit of Sport Relief.

Taking place 23rd – 25th March, Sport Relief 2012 will see yet more celebrities – and even a few of us non-celebrities – push through boundaries of physical fitness to achieve something for a great charitable cause.

With a lifelong phobia of water, Frank Skinner is set to tackle his fears and swim the width of an Olympic-sized pool in front of a live audience of millions in the BT Sport Relief challenge.

Comedian John Bishop’s BT Sport Relief challenge will comprise a ‘week from hell’ during which he’ll make his way from Paris to Trafalgar Square in London via combination of cycling, rowing and running.

On a less extreme level, the Sainsbury’s Sport Relief Mile provides a challenge accessible to participants of all ages and fitness levels.

So, whether you’re inspired by completed challenges such as Eddie Izzard’s and David Walliam’s achievements or inspired by challenges to come this year. The biggest inspiration by far is the amazing achievements you and your body are capable of.

Visit http://www.sportrelief.com to register, sponsor or donate and get yourself geared up for the challenge with Ecco.

Ecco Shoes: A good sport

It’s no secret that more of us wear sportswear as a fashion statement these days than to actually do sport.

But never has the ‘sporty’ look been such a hot trend for men as it is in 2011.

The beginning of the season saw the catwalks full of preppy sportswear looks on the runway, with vintage style trainers accompanying sportswear and other smart-casual looks.

As a result, the two biggest trends in men’s footwear this year are classic trainers and golf-inspired shoes. And, with another key 2011 trend for wearing trouser legs rolled up, it leaves a much bigger margin for error as your shoes take the limelight like never before…

So, as we’re good sports here at Ecco Shoes Lymington, we’ve compiled our top three classic sporty looks to bring your footwear bang up to date:

Ecco Solstice

Ecco Solstice

Ecco Solstice
(was £85.00, now £65.00)

Retro styling with a suede upper, this casual sporty shoe provides a very wearable look. Textile linings mean that your feet can breathe.

Ecco Stamp

Ecco Stamp

Ecco Stamp
(£100.00)

A classic look with a modern twist, this casual shoe is available in grey or brown tones. A PU sole provides durable grip.

Ecco Herald

Ecco Herald

Ecco Hearld
(£95.00)

Seriously stylish, this vintage looking casual shoe has a contrasting PU/rubber sole as seen from all of the major fashion shows this year.

Wear them with trousers rolled up, or down – that’s your call.

It might not be footwear for sport but it certainly sports a good look.

Follow the links for more Ecco men’s styles or to view footwear that is actually for sport.

Ecco Shoes: designed for life

A little planning goes a long way when it comes to investing in men’s footwear.

Men are much more likely to want their footwear to ‘multi-task’ in a way that women don’t. And for a very good reason: when did you ever see a man able to carry a spare pair of pumps in his handbag in case his shoes began to rub?

A trans-seasonal capsule footwear collection is the solution that takes men from workday to weekend, and from work to play. The key is to focus on classic, quality footwear that will serve as investment pieces for years to come in styles designed for life.

Sophisticated yet practical, your capsule footwear collection will include basic styles that can be dressed up or down:

What’s your signature walk? Ecco Biom Walk

Ecco Biom Walk

Ecco Biom Walk

There’s something special about way we move. Whether running to catch the train, strutting over to the photocopier at work or getting into your rhythm at the gym, everyone reveals something of their personality in the way they move.

We may all have our own different styles but, when it comes to needs, they’re usually the same. From a trainer, we need comfort, durability, strength and performance.

Ecco revealed something of it’s innovative personality when it famously became the first leading shoe brand to use Yak leather. With its natural habitat in the Himalayas is among the toughest in the world, the Yak is an incredibly strong and hardy animal. The extraordinary strength of Yak leather means that it can be reduced in thickness, resulting in a much lighter and more breathable shoe.

As part of an exclusive range of Ecco footwear made with Yak leather, the Ecco Biom Walk is a performance trainer like no other. Featuring bio-chemical midsoles to support and stabilise the foot, flexible outsoles for traction and grip and sleek design, it gives you the confidence to move the way you want to.

And with each and every Yak hide bearing it’s own signature, your trainers have their own unique personality – just like you.

Click here to view the full range of Ecco mens trainers and Ecco womens trainers at Ecco Shoes UK, including the Ecco Biom Walk, Ecco Biom Trainer 1.1 and Ecco Biom C made from Yak leather.

The art and science of running: ECCO Biom

Ecco Biom Trainer 801524 - Mens Trainers

The Ecco Biom Trainer 801524 - Mens Trainers

Whether you’re limbering up for this weekend’s London Marathon or just getting out jogging this Spring, professional and amateur runners alike tend to know something of the science behind their sport. But what about the art of it?

ECCO believes that the foot itself is a masterpiece. Evolved over thousands of years, the foot has developed to cope with changes in our lifestyle. As a work of art, ECCO’s philosophy is to put the foot first, meaning ECCO’s shoes are designed around the natural motion of the foot.

This is where the science bit comes

back into play. Developed throughout years of testing and biomechanic analysis, ECCO’s unique Biom concept has presents a range of fitness shoes to compensate for the stress of running on hard surfaces.

The Ecco Biom Trainer 1.1 801503 - Womens Trainers

Staying true to the ECCO philosophy to design shoes that follow the foot, the Biom range is unique on three levels: a slimmer sole provides dynamic contact with the ground, the anatomically shaped sole unit provides natural support and the flexibility of the unit as a whole allows your foot to move as it was designed to.

Art and science don’t always sit comfortably together but the two happily cohabit within the ECCO Biom range, achieving performance without compromising the aesthetic.
