Stylish waterproof specialists Norwegian Rain have teamed up with Danish footwear specialists ECCO on an exciting new project combining expertise to produce a waterproof shoe - utilising their resources and know-how, and developing designs together at their labs in Tønder, Denmark.
The result, “The Waterproof Shoe” with the highest standards of anatomical comfort. The limited-edition collection is made with premium ECCO leathers and includes zip boots design variations built on the Danish shoemaker's pioneering ST.1 “shock-thru” innovation.
The tech The hybrid boot offers outstanding shock absorption, as well as increased rebound, the sole features a SHOCKTHRU SD.PU cushion core insert directly beneath the point of impact at the heel. Made on an anatomical last that creates a soft, cupped heel that improves both the stability and the fit, and from the radical, sumptuously soft PHORENETM material inside the midsole.
Norwegian Rain was established in Bergen (Norway) by business graduate Alexander Helle. The idea was to create tailored rainwear with a sartorial elegance. Together with tailor T-Michael, they created Norwegian Rain. Even though Bergen is a relatively small city, it’s also one of the wettest cities in Europe, it rained for 276 days last year, which obviously makes Bergen the perfect environment to start a rainwear brand. Since the start, the brand has been a huge success.
