The latest styles are offered in all-new GORE-TEX and textile versions, an updated design combining Tibetan yak leather with ultra-soft nubuck, with the current yak leather version.
The new BIOM Hybrid’s aim to provide a combination of comfort, stability, traction and design. They also include two patented performance systems – NATURAL MOTION and the ECCO Dynamic Traction System – attempting to deliver great performance and comfort.
“Golfers worldwide can’t get enough of the footwear experience that BIOM Hybrid delivers.”
Initially developed for the premium running market, NATURAL MOTION technology relies on a completely anatomical last developed by scanning the feet of 2,500 athletes. It provides support along the entire footbed and relies on the body’s evolutionary system for absorbing the impact of each step.
Like all ECCO shoes in the hybrid category, BIOM Hybrid is built atop the E-DTS outsole with approximately 100 moulded traction bars and 800 traction angles. These elements are made from TPU – a highly durable, wear-resistant material – offering a Tour-quality grip.
“Golfers worldwide can’t get enough of the footwear experience that BIOM Hybrid delivers,” says Michael Waack, head of global golf at ECCO.
“The levels of comfort and performance are really unrivalled across the entire luxury market and we’ve worked hard to stay out in front of trends by introducing some great new looks.”
Extremely Low Profile – Brings a golfer’s weight closer to the playing surface for excellent stability, ground feel and traction.
Direct Injection – A process that yields superior cushioning, stability and comfort via a one-piece shoe that’s built without glue or stitching.
Weather Resistance – Naturally soft, smooth, breathable and strong Tibetan Yak leather uppers are treated with HYDROMAX for superb weather protection or GORE-TEX to become completely waterproof.
Climate Control – The triple-component ECCO Comfort Fibre System insole for a cool, dry shoe interior.
In addition to Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn, Thongchai Jaidee, Marcel Siem, Wu Ashun, Andreas Hartø and JB Hansen wear the ECCO men’s golf collection.
RRP: HYDROMAX™ £165, GORE-TEX £185
