The BIOM Natural Motion collection from ECCO® is based on the principle that by adding support only where the foot needs it, the foot is allowed to move and flex the way nature intended. This departure from traditional stability and motion-control footwear is the basis of the minimalist movement in athletic shoes.
Built on an anatomical last, all BIOM shoes provide a more natural flexion and dynamic stride. This allows your feet to move within its natural range of motion, breaking the habit of a heel-strike stride encouraged by more traditional cushioned pronation-control shoes.
Whether you’re looking for a walking shoe or a fitness running shoe, there’s a BIOM shoe tailored for your specific needs. The thing to remember when first transitioning into minimalist shoes, such as the BIOM Natural Motion, is to start slowly. It takes some time for your feet to acclimate to the lack of heel lifts and motion control found in more traditional running and walking shoes.
