Vision

We design running shoes based on the Scandinavian idea that form follows function. The barefoot is designed by nature to absorb impact, propel forward and progressively strengthen. Conventional running shoes inhibit this functionality. ECCO BIOM NATURAL MOTION helps to optimise it.

Running

Running

We make running shoes not because we have to, but because we believe we have something to offer to runners.

Road Running

BIOM defines the sweet spot between minimalism and support. By combining barefoot flexibility with anatomical structures, BIOM shoes help guide you to your most efficient natural stride. Our road shoes feature soles and support tuned for asphalt and hard surfaces.

Trail Running

These shoes balance the support and traction needed for trail running with the flexibility that enables your optimal barefoot gait. In our experience, trail running is the ultimate way to experience BIOM NATURAL MOTION while running in nature.

BIOM NATURAL MOTION

BIOM unlocks the body's intrinsic capability to move efficiently and powerfully.

BIOM NATURAL MOTION

Since 1963, we have used our freedom as an independent family-owned company to pursue the Scandinavian principle of form following function or, as we put it, the shoe must follow the foot. Unlike other global shoemakers, we insist on owning our own factories, even our tanneries, giving us the means to relentlessly innovate. All this has made BIOM possible. BIOM (short for “bio-mechanical optimisation”) represents our highest achievement so far, enabling the foot to realise its full natural potential.

BIOM NATURAL MOTION

Features & Benefits

STRENGTHENING. BIOM can help you get stronger by engaging the feet and lower legs to use natural systems for absorbing impact and propelling forward. 

INCREASED EFFICIENCY.
By guiding you to strike the ground closer to your midfoot, it enables a smooth stride and more powerful push off.

LOW-TO-THE-GROUND. 
Low-profile construction enables the natural structures of the foot to fully react to the ground, creating a dynamic feel.
BIOM NATURAL MOTION

Features & Benefits

SECOND SKIN FIT. The shoes' lightness, suppleness and anatomical accuracy lets it fit your foot like a glove. It feels like an extension of your body.

DIRECT-INJECTION. 
We have long mastered this technology, which involves injecting an extremely resilient material into foot-shaped molds, letting us create shoes that are shaped noticeably more like the foot and which absorb shock throughout. Perfect for a natural running shoe.

Where it all started

RESEARCH-PROVEN BENEFITS
In 2010 the German Sport University of Cologne followed a large group of serious runners. All were tested in bio-mechanical gait analysis under three different conditions: barefoot; in their current running shoes; and in BIOM running shoes. Runners were assessed to evaluate their current running style. They then trained for six weeks in BIOM and were reassessed.

RESULTS
After six weeks, the subjects' running styles substantively changed, becoming more efficient and smoother with measurably more of a powerful push-off. Runners adapted to use the muscles in the knees, lower legs, and feet to cushion themselves. They also demonstrated better utilization of the Achilles tendon.

BIOM NATURAL MOTION

Perfect Fit

Place your hand in any other running shoe, then do the same with BIOM. You’ll notice that BIOM is like a nuanced mold of a foot. This is because BIOM is constructed on an anatomically precise last based on foot scans of 2500 athletes. BIOM literally fits the foot like a second-skin.
BIOM NATURAL MOTION

BIOM vs. Barefoot

The human foot evolved to function in a world before asphalt. In primitive times, people walked on dirt and grass, which provided a certain amount of cushioning — and their feet were calloused and tough. BIOM enables the foot to move naturally while providing protection and anatomical support.

NATURALLY, A BETTER WAY TO RUN TRAILS

BIOM ULTRA

In our opinion, one of the most rewarding ways to get on the same wavelength as nature is trail-running — which pushes you to observe and react to every nuance of the terrain. We designed BIOM ULTRA as our dream trail shoe. It fits like a glove and it rides on a marvel of sole — featuring multiple lug styles that enable both traction and propulsion. BIOM ULTRA’s low-to-the-ground construction delivers responsiveness and excellent ground feedback, and its ultra-flexible construction follows every move you make.  It makes running trails an absolute pleasure.

“By pushing the core elements of our BIOM NATURAL MOTION system — flexibility, low-to-the-ground design, anatomical fit and biomechanical support — we have created a one-of-a-kind trail running experience. This is how it should feel to run in nature.”

THE EVOLUTION JUST GOT FASTER

BIOM EVO RACER

A minimalist shoe for training and competitive running, weighs in at a featherweight 240 g (Men's size 41 textile). This low-to-the-ground shoe combines a glove-like fit with bio-mimicking anatomical support that helps guide the foot to its optimal natural motion path. In 2014 it also comes in a seamless PRO version.

“The idea was to make an evolution of the old BIOM running shoe; with the best anatomical fit, better flexibility, and an extremely light weight.“

- Andrzej “Bartie” Bikowski, Lead Designer Performance

BIOM EVO RACER PRO

For the summer, we have increased performance with a seamless technology which, combined with open-mesh, increases support, fit and ventilation so your last mile is as comfortable as your first. It is a minimalist shoe that delivers maximum results.

HEEL CAVITY
This construction makes the transition from heel to forefoot smooth and comfortable.
FOREFOOT FLEX GROOVES

The BIOM sole is moulded from the barefoot, integrating flexible grooves that enable the shoe to flex at the same places your foot does.

LIGHTER WEIGHT

Second generation soles and uppers are even lighter, supporting the feel that the shoe is simply an extension of the body.

BIOM INTERNAL FIT FRAME
It offers support where it is needed and creates a more natural fit and feel.
ASYMMETRICAL TONGUE AND COLLAR
Second-generation collar design increases ankle comfort, while the next-level tongue design locks in your individual fit. So your last mile is as comfortable as your first.
