Ecco is a European shoe manufacturer based in Denmark. Specialized primarily in casual footwear and leather manufacturing, it differs from most athletic brands not only in design but in its sizing approach.
Ecco shoe sizing is based on the EU scheme and only comes in full sizes. Each EU size corresponds to one full US size plus the next half-size up. For example, men’s EU 43 translates to US 9/9.5.
To avoid getting lost in translation, we highly recommend measuring your foot length first, following this guide.

How various Ecco models fit
Once you know which size fits you best in Ecco, you are safe getting any model from the brand in that same size.
There is also no need to worry about a break-in period if you get a leather shoe from Ecco. The brand uses highly supple leather which molds to your foot from the start.
