• ECCO Golf team up with GORE for shoe unlike any other

In the ECCO Golf Cool shoe, the company is vowing to combine unparalleled walking pleasure and climate comfort, as well as protection from the elements.
“We’re truly excited about this revolutionary new development” – Michael Waack
Featuring GORE-TEX Surround technology, the shoe contains an advanced air channelling system within the grid-shaped sole that provides 360° breathability without compromising the need to keep feet dry in all conditions.
Excess moisture and heat is able to escape through the upper GORE-TEX membrane assembly, as well as laterally through the highly breathable midsole, ensuring feet stay dry and comfortable, even in warmer conditions.
“Being able to provide complete breathability without compromising on waterproof protection is a genuine first in the golf footwear sector,” said Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO.
“We’re truly excited about this revolutionary new development and can’t wait for golfers to experience the exceptional comfort, breathability, and protection that ECCO Cool provides.”
ECCO Cool also boasts the Champ Slim-lok cleat system, as well as a removable inlay sole, which offers extra width for those who require it.
As is the case with all of the golf shoes in ECCO Golf’s spring/summer 2017 collection, ECCO Cool Surround is crafted at company-owned factories that utilise the DIP to bond the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe without the use of glue or stitching.
Benefits include flexibility, durability and a lightweight construction and the Ecco Golf Cool could be seen on Tour soon, with the likes of Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn and Thongchai Jaidee all brand ambassadors.
