Looking high and low for trend-forward leather footwear and accessories to ground your cold-weather looks? Start with ECCO, a Danish footwear and leather-goods brand that’s adopted a modern approach to design for the modern family—one that spotlights minimalism, movement and uncompromising craftsmanship in equal measures. Following 7,000 years of tanning tradition, this family-owned company creates and tans its own leather and manufactures footwear at its own factories. Since 1963, ECCO has remained well versed in fit and comfort, always evolving while staying true to its heritage.

Read on as we detail our top picks from ECCO’s covetable leather footwear and handbag lineup (including a couple that’ll shine on your holiday to-buy-for list). From ultra-comfy knee-high flats to runway-approved combat style boots and a jacquard tote that nods to current aesthetic trends, these picks make an immediate impression.

For understated elegance

Designed for the style devotee who also prioritizes comfort, these highly giftable platform booties feature rounded heels and contrasting black design elements (most prominently an asymmetrical inside zip) for an architectural take that turns heads.

For every occasion

Everything to love about ECCO’s design conventions comes together in the Gruuv Sneaker, a city-approved shoe that blends all the streetwise sensibility of a sneaker with the stunning look of buttery-soft nappa leather. This ultra-wearable pair—bolstered by multidirectional FLUIDFORM flexibility—looks equally as on point at weekend brunch as it does on a neighbourhood stroll.


For a classic statement

Everything you need for the day fits in one ’90s-inspired tote—that’s the appeal of this slick jacquard silhouette that’s super generous on space. Whether you’re clutching it by the leather top handles or wearing it cross-body with the durable shoulder strap, it’ll make a subtle statement wherever you take it.

For ultimate comfort

A utilitarian boot that’s also undeniably feminine? You get it with the Nouvelle Lace Boot, a combat style that features HYDROMAX, a water-repellent coating on buttery soft leather to keep you dry in wet-weather conditions. It’s the ideal pick for the person who wants unbridled style married with the potential for serious mileage.


For high confidence 

Inspired by the Danish design codes we all know and love (minimalism, intentionalism and, of course, clean lines), this knee-high boot heightens the essential style with a downy warm lining and an easy-on, easy-off full inside zip. Expect instant all-day wear thanks to ECCO’s FLUIDFORM technology, which brings lightweight flexibility to every step.
