Wimbledon wannabies

It’s Wimbledon time of year again and it makes us feel very British and want to eat strawberries by the punnet.

With audiences made up of sports fanatics and those among us usually apathetic towards sport, the question we’re asking ourselves at Ecco Shoes this week is: what is it about Wimbledon that keeps us wanting more?

After all this time, it’s not the hope of a British winner. And despite hot shot Novak Djokovic’s recent spread in Italian Vogue, it’s not the fashion.

Maybe it has to do with the fact that tennis is an exciting spectator sport and, importantly, it’s accessible. You don’t have to know your dink shots from your drop volleys to appreciate athletes like Rafael Nadal who inspire followers beyond their game and make us all want to be fitter versions of ourselves.

Famous for the way he sprints back into position after a shot, Nadal insists this isn’t a tactic to rattle his opponent “I do it because I feel good doing it. It’s like me saying ‘OK, I start again!’”

In actual fact, sprint training is an important part of Nadal’s fitness regime which incorporates shuttle runs, treadmills and sideways running to improve footwork and coordination.

The Ecco Biom Walk trainer is a great all-rounder fitness shoe. Biomechanically engineered to enhance the movement of your foot, the Ecco Biom Walk combines shock absorbance, flexibility and traction for a superior multi-purpose trainer.

So whether you’re inspired by Nadal’s positive mentality that begins and ends each play with a sprint, whether you just feel like getting more active this summer or whether you need to run off some strawberries and cream, get off to a running start (like Nadal) with a pair of Ecco trainers.

What’s your signature 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.

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.

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.
