Oxford, UK ECCO Oxford announces the availability of ECCO footwear combined with GORE-TEX® XCR® fabric. Designed for every man and every occasion, ECCO footwear is combined with GORE-TEX® XCR® fabric to bring you quality, style and above all else comfort.

A new generation of shoes for men

GORE-TEX® XCR® footwear are a new generation of shoes for men and allow your feet to breathe, so whatever environment you're in, you'll have ultimate climate comfort. GORE-TEX® XCR® membrane (which stands for eXtended Comfort Range) is a unique material patented by W L Gore and Associates. The pores in the membrane are 20,000 times smaller than a water drop and 700 times larger than a water vapour molecule. Thanks to its extremely high breathability, optimum heat conductivity, excellent moisture management and durable waterproof protection, the GORE-TEX® XCR® laminate inside the shoe works in harmony with all the other Gore approved components (leathers, textiles and laces). All this ensures your feet stay dry and remain at the right temperature throughout the day.

The Perfect Accessory

What's more, they're functional and fashionable. They combine the elegant design of classical leisurewear styles with breathability and comfort and they have the added benefit of GORE-TEX® GUARANTEED TO KEEP YOU DRY® promise. So they feel and look just as good at the start of the day when you're taking in an ancient ruin as they do when you sit down to an al fresco dinner. A pair of shoes for all occasions: travel in them, explore in them, relax in them and enjoy the weekend without worry about uncomfortable feet. The great thing is that you don't have to pack several pairs of shoes - so you can travel light.
