ECCO has been around since the early 1960s and it was started by Karl Toosbuy in Denmark. It started off as a small company working out of a small factory in a small town known as Bredebro. As time went on, ECCO appeared in the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. Then Karl Toosbuy decided to try to make shoes that fit the foot and were light and flexible. This attempt was met with success for ECCO. Today ECCO is sold worldwide and come in different sizes for different purposes.
