This edition of the Ecco First is a mid-cut winter pre-walker boot. It has been designed with little feet in mind, to help children take their first steps in comfort.
Firstly, Ecco has crafted this model out of camel nubuck leather. It is durable and tear resistant, yet soft and supple with unique markings.
Ecco creates original leathers at their own gold-rated tanning facilities across the world. These tanneries are Gold rated by The Leather Working Group. Furthermore, the full-grain leather used for this model has been sourced from a select group of suppliers, that have demonstrated the highest level of animal welfare.
Alongside this, there is Gore-tex technology in the form of a water-proof membrane. It ensures that every inch of this boot is protected, while keeping your child’s feet untouched by the harshest environments.
Following the curves of your child’s feet, Fluidform technology enhances every step that they take. This comfort begins with the anatomical last and 3D mould that have been used to craft this boot. Moreover, lightweight fluid materials are directly injected into the sole. Because of this, they create a flexible and lightweight bond between the upper and the outsole. As a result, your child can wear the First all day.
Inside, there is a felt insole. It is removable, meaning that you can fit in a custom orthotic for your child – for those with specific fit requirements. However, the supplied insole allows you to measure the growth of their foot, to ensure there is enough room to move comfortably.
Lastly, to fasten the Ecco First, there are two straps. They are Velcro, so your child can adjust the fit according to their foot type.
