The ECCO EXOSTRIKE DYNEEMA Edition, a fast hiking boot that combines fully-functional attributes with innovative design, can now add a Red Dot award for product design to its collection of design recognitions. The Red Dot Design Award is a renowned international design competition, which singles out products and projects with outstanding design and presents their designers with an award every year. This year, products from 59 countries entered the competition, and each product was assessed individually by an independent and international jury of experts.
The ECCO EXOSTRIKE DYNEEMA Edition came out on top in a comparison with the best in the industry. In addition to the award, the recognition lands the ECCO EXOSTRIKE a spot in the Red Dot Museum, the largest museum for contemporary design.
The revolution of the ECCO EXOSTRIKE starts in the sole with light, new P.U PHORENE™ midsole which is climate-blind up to -40 degrees, an external P.U heel stiffener and trail-grabbing rubber outsole. On top is world-first DYNEEMA® BONDED LEATHER by ECCO — extra strong, lightweight and soft, providing superb tear resistance, a high strength-to-weight ratio and water repellent properties.
