Fred Couples wears Ecco

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.
