ECCO Leather introduces FSDX STRETCH, a soft and supple leather fused with neoprene, offering impressive elasticity and new possibilities for footwear.
Leather has always been prized for its strength and durability – it’s the ideal material for footwear, but could it ever be as comfortable as synthetic sports footwear? FSDX STRETCH fuses bovine leather with neoprene to create a material that combines strength with ultimate comfort for a new generation of footwear.
With the introduction of a new re-tanning technology, we’ve created a bovine leather with excellent elasticity. Using our own FSDX technology to aid retention, we fused leather to neoprene resulting in a material that expands and contacts, and moulds to the shape it is wrapped around.
FSDX STRETCH has the perfect amount of elasticity for footwear, letting you slip in and out of shoes easily. With a soft and comfortable lining material of its own, the quality is right for unlined shoes and activewear garments. For example, when applied to sock boots and sneakers with minimal and utilitarian silhouettes, FSDX STRETCH brings the best of durability, comfort, and functionality together with one revolutionary new material.
FSDX STRETCH by ECCO Leather is available in three leather finishes: a full-grain with matte shine and supple feel, a nubuck with a soft and velvety texture, and a perforated full-grain leather with a modern athletic structure.
