Size and fit

The Ecco Byway is exclusively available in men’s sizing. Several reviews point out that sizing runs on the bigger side, and suggest getting half or a full-size up. It is crucial to keep in mind one’s forefoot snug preference when reading the recommendations where width comfortability is concerned.

Whichever metric measurement one is accustomed to, Ecco put up both US and EU sizing and guide for the individual to easily pick the right size they are more familiar with.

Additionally, this all-leather urban sneaker comes with a textile-lined removable footbed, allowing one to put in their orthotics for a more personalized fit.

Ecco Byway Style

With a timeless profile and painted with earthy tones of black, brown, gray, clothing pieces to go with the Ecco Byway need not be limited to the basic attire. On the contrary, neutral tones make it very wearable to fit the casual lifestyle of today’s sneaker wearer.

  • Look ruggedly and effortlessly cool in an all-grey ensemble with a charcoal plaid grey overcoat over a light grey knitted shirt, grey chinos, and Dark Shadow hue of the Ecco Byway on feet.
  • Women’s fashion can never go wrong with an androgynous look of white shorts, navy blue turtleneck, and a Cocoa Brown of the Ecco Byway to go about the hustle and bustle of the city jungle.

Notable Features

Crafted for the modern-day urban grinder, the Ecco Byway features a mixture of leather upper to not only fit the street style trend but give the wearer the option to dress it for a more sophisticated and elegant casual get-together. 

A weaving pattern fabric covers the extended heel counter and tongue to give it a hit of contrasting detail. While the padded heel and tongue are lined with soft textile for that added plush of comfort, cushion, and support.

Barely noticeable is carved out inverted triangle patterns that accentuate the heel offering a peek inside a contrasting hue.
