Danish company ECCO – a leading global manufacturer of innovative footwear – announces the launch of its latest hybrid golf shoe, ECCO Speed, which combines a cool, vintage sneaker aesthetic with leading-edge comfort technology and a Tour-proven outsole.
Continuing to expand the horizons of hybrid footwear styling, ECCO Speed’s sleek design and subdued colors perfectly coordinate with nearly any outfit. It is also distinguished by:
- Exceptional cushioning, flexibility and durability provided by a Direct-injected PU midsole
- E-DTS outsole with molded traction bars made from hard-wearing TPU that provide hundreds of traction angles for superb grip
- ECCO Freedom Fit mixing a snug heel setting with a roomier forefoot area that allows toes to move naturally
“Inspired by one of ECCO’s best-selling casual sneakers, ECCO Speed pairs a great look with the game’s most-advanced hybrid outsole technology,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “It’s another testament to our unique position as one of the world’s largest shoe companies, a top maker of luxury leathers and pioneer of golf footwear trends.”
To ensure a pleasant walk round after round, ECCO Speed also includes a removable leather inlay sole with ECCO Comfort Fibre System™. The shoe is available in three versions for Spring/Summer 2016 – an all-leather waterproof GORE-TEX® model, as well as leather and leather/textile models with ECCO HYDROMAX™, a proprietary treatment that provides outstanding, long-lasting water-repellency.
Like all ECCO golf shoes, ECCO Speed is crafted at ECCO-owned factories using the Direct-injection Process. This bonds the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits include a firm, water-tight seal.
Endorsed by Tour stars worldwide, the ECCO Golf collection is worn in competition by Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjørn, Thongchai Jaidee, Will Wilcox, Ben Evans, Jim Renner, Caroline Masson, Gerina Piller, Jennifer Johnson, Kendall Dye, Pernilla Lindberg, Therese Koelbaek and Liz Young, among others.
