Our Story

Proper fit provides the underpinnings for performance, comfort, and style of footwear. We recognize that the current trends in commerce are towards globalization and customization. Eclo was founded in 2015 with the vision of removing geographic boundaries for consumers and retailers by enabling custom manufacturing and a virtual shoe fitting experience that matches the success rate of traditional, in-store fitting.

To tackle the fitting problem in a principled manner, we assembled a talented team of IT experts and R&D engineers specializing in mechanical engineering, computer vision, and machine learning. Funded by the NSF SBIR program, Eclo develops state-of-the-art 3D measurement and shape analysis/modeling technology for feet and shoes. Join us to make online shopping personal!
