Size and fit

The Ecco Cool GTX is available in men’s and women’s models. The men’s version has sizes ranging from 5-5.5 up to 12-12.5 while the women’s model has sizes measuring 4-4.5 to 12-12.5.

While the upper of the shoe is made of yak leather which gives the shoe a soft and luxurious feel, it still provides a nice supportive touch to the feet. The high-density insole, meanwhile, gives a bit of reinforcement and comfort to arches.

Ecco Cool GTX Style

Ecco’s shoes have a distinct elegant flair to them, whether they’re part of its high-top or low-top collection, and the Cool GTX is no different. It exudes a slightly dressy look that will serve you well whether you’re on the golf course, on a casual Friday at work, or hanging out with friends on a weeknight. Pair your leather low-top shoe with shorts, jeans, or slim chinos. Either way you dress it, the Cool GTX will switch your outfit up a notch.

Notable Features

The Ecco Cool GTX is an already superb all-around shoe but what makes it more noteworthy is its Gore-Tex Surround feature that keeps the water outside while keeping the feet comfortably dry inside. The TPU tubes along the midsole remove any excess moisture and let heat escape, keeping the feet cool all day long.

Ecco Cool GTX History

Ecco is a Danish manufacturing company that was founded in the town of Bredebro by Karl Toosbuy in 1963. It is a brand known for being one of the very few shoe makers in the world to own and manage every part of the shoemaking process (Ecco has its own tanneries) ensuring that every footwear that comes out meets its highest standards right down to the smallest detail.

From a few footwear models in the 60s, Ecco has now expanded into a global brand with numerous shoe collections. One of these is the Cool Collection which hosts the Ecco Cool GTX. Shoes in this line boast of molded and anatomically-correct build that provide superior comfort that lasts for hours along with 360-degree breathability.

Additional Info

  • The Ecco Cool GTX features a premium perforated upper made of yak leather. It also has a direct-injected midsole and a durable TPU outsole.
