ECCO Upgrade the BIOM 2.1 X COUNTRY with GORE-TEXRelease: 12 August 2022
ECCO have been pioneering footwear innovation for decades, and their latest advancement is in their Outdoor sphere with the BIOM 2.1 X COUNTRY GORE-TEX. This multi-seasonal upgrade to the trail and street model ups its conditional versatility thanks to its eponymous GORE-TEX technology that promises waterproof breathability, all while maintaining ECCO’s ergonomic BIOM system.,
The BIOM 2.1 X COUNTRY was introduced earlier this year as the latest application of the ECCO BIOM Natural Motion. After proving the system’s effectiveness in athletic and casual applications, it took to the trails as the ultimate test. Built around a low profile that puts the foot closer to the ground for better control and feel without compromising protection, the design makes perfect sense off-road. Paired to the brand’s proprietary PHORENE cushioning foam and FLUIDFORM direct injection technology, underfoot armour is more than adequate.
All of this protection sole-side is matched up top. Ripstop nylon uppers keep weight down and durability up, and now there’s an additional layer of defence with the aforementioned GORE-TEX membrane sitting underneath. As ECCO have been using this technology for years, this new iteration will ensure each step is taken in complete confidence of staying dry and warm.
The new version of the BIOM 2.1 X COUNTRY GORE-TEX also brings with it original colourways. In keeping with the tonal trend of trail footwear, these two editions take on earth tones that blend in with their natural habitat of the outdoors. A terracotta option is reminiscent of falling leaves as the seasons change, while an olive version is a direct connection to earth. Both are unmistakably ECCO, as an oversized reflective word mark emerges on the leather heel counter.
