With cold weather setting in and snow falling around parts of the world, many sneakerheads have to put away their flashy footwear in favour of something a little more utilitarian – and perhaps unsightly too. That ends now with the ECCO SOLICE, which is purpose-built for low temperatures and high style.

As pioneers of direct injection technology, the Danish brand can sculpt soles to whatever surface and conditions they’ll be traversing. For the SOLICE, a thick wedge of foam keeps the foot literally elevated off the ground, while forming an impermeable seal with the upper. A deeply cut rubber tread also ensures grip without any slip.

Up top is the full gamut of ECCO excellence. A wide and tall mudguard wrapping into an extended toe bumper adds yet another layer of protection. That’s joined to a shaft of supple yak leather with textile gussets on lateral and medial sides of the ankle, which is locked down with an oversized lace system. By the way, that soft leather is sourced directly from their in-house tanneries, ensuring customised quality.

While the brand prides itself on what is effectively a DIY approach but on a massive scale (they are the world’s second-largest footwear manufacturer), some third-party experts are called in. Long-time partners GORE-TEX provide their waterproof-breathable membrane underneath the SOLICE’s uppers, which also ensures the snow white colourway does indeed stay frosty fresh. And beneath that is a dense filling of Primaloft 400g insulation, for toasty toes even in the coldest conditions.

Think the SOLICE is so nice? Head over to ECCO to pick up a pair before hitting the ice!
