Few people watching the 2010 Masters can have missed the distinctive footwear worn by Fred Couples.
In recent years the term hybrid has become one of the most used buzz-words in golf. Taking this one step further and adopting it into footwear, innovative Danish shoe manufacturer, ECCO has introduced a new sports-inspired casual golf shoe for the male and female golfer that is aptly named “Golf Street.”
More fashion-forward than traditional-fairway, these unique styles have been created specifically to be worn both on and off the course. Funky, fun and colorful with colour-matched soles, laces and sleek profiles, the new Golf Street on first appearance looks nothing like a conventional golf shoe.
Luxurious, full-grain leather uppers sit upon a new, low-profile, direct-injected PU midsole. This vibrant street shoe look is further enhanced by metal rivet accents and a sleek, semi-transparent TPU outsole that showcases bright, funky colours, as well as pre-moulded traction bars that are extremely durable and provide enhanced grip. Synthetic blend wide-flat laces are provided in two different colours for added customisation.
The all new Golf Street brings a totally new look to the course, driving range and après golf, and for those who doubt it’s high-levels of traction, stability and support look no further than the current ‘on Tour’ usage by golfing legend Fred Couples.
For Men, Golf Street is available in a range of colours including Concrete/White/Cactus and Licorice/Coffee/Fanta colour options with suggested retail price of £90.
Couples was consistently in the leading group of players throughout this year’s Masters (he finished 6th) and his new shoes attracted much favourable comment.
