Danish company ECCO – a leading global manufacturer of innovative footwear – announces its Casual Hybrid range, available immediately.
The Casual Hybrid combines trend-setting silhouettes, remarkably-premium materials and advanced performance technologies. It is offered in a sleek sneaker version for men as well as modern-classic Brogue options for men and women. Each is highly water repellent via the proprietary ECCO HYDROMAX™ treatment.
“The pioneering spirit that led us to introduce the first hybrid footwear in golf continues to drive our innovations season after season,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “These exciting new shoes pair Tour-proven technologies with the most attractive designs and richest materials.”
To be showcased alongside the Spring/Summer 2015 collection, the Casual Hybrid provides the option for extra width through a special leather inlay sole. It is built atop the patented E-DTS outsole, which boasts approximately 100 moulded traction bars deliver nearly 800 traction angles. Constructed from TPU – a highly durable, wear-resistant material – these elements promote superb grip.
Like all ECCO golf shoes, Casual Hybrid models are crafted at company-owned factories using the Direct-injection Process. This bonds the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe construction without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits include a firm, water-tight seal, lightweight flexibility and out-of-the-box comfort.
The ECCO Golf collection is also endorsed by scores of Tour stars worldwide, including Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjørn, Marcel Siem, Will Wilcox, Thongchai Jaidee, Caroline Masson and many others.
