This fall, ECCO introduces a fashion forward collection of shoes and boots that allow active women effortless wear from morning to evening. Sculptured 65, a breakthrough line of high-heeled shoes and boots, features the fashion of a heel without making your feet pay the price.

Since the beginning of ECCO nearly 50 years ago, the shoemaker - now the largest in Scandinavia and well-known around the world - has stayed true to its most important ambition: designing footwear that is both stylish and comfortable. This versatile collection is simply classic, yet futuristic, and pairs perfectly with daytime casual, office chic or late-night glam for around-the-clock comfort.
"I've always had shoemaking in my blood, and with this collection I wanted to create something that has never been created before," said Niki Tæstensen, head ladies designer behind ECCO Sculptured 65. "Sculptured is a very good example of mixing shoemaking with modern technology. The shoes are simply and classic, but in the same way, innovative and futuristic."
The shoe must follow the foot. This notion is at the heart of all footwear that ECCO designs and produces. The company has spent years studying the fit and feel that fashion footwear on a higher heel should have. Women who wear ECCO shoes have busy lives. Whether that involves a career with travel and commuting or an active family life, ECCO customers want to look great and have their shoes keep up with the pace.
Well-designed fashion shoes should provide the right amount of fit, cushioning, shock absorption and easy interaction with the body that is in constant motion. Sculptured 65 offers unsurpassed comfort performance that will make you forget you are wearing heels at all.
ECCO, a world-leading brand of shoes combining style and comfort, has built its success on uncompromising quality, innovative technology, and the design philosophy, "The shoe must follow the foot." ECCO is the only major shoe manufacturer to own and manage every step of the shoemaking process, and its employees are the life force behind its products - designing, developing, producing, and taking responsibility for every detail. ECCO products can be found in 4,000 branded sales locations in over 90 countries, a growth fueled by ECCO's consistent aim of making the best shoes in the world.
