Danish brand ECCO – maker of the world’s most comfortable, technically-advanced footwear – announces the introduction of the World Class GTX in a White/Imperial Purple colour option, an accomplished, luxurious, traditional men’s golf shoe combining rich leather uppers with an array of modern technological features.

Handcrafted to be golf’s most luxurious footwear experience, with a fit and feel that exceeds even the highest expectations, World Class GTX will be worn in competition by several ECCO staff players including Stuart Appleby and Aaron Baddeley. The shoe is the only leather-soled golf shoe offered by a major manufacturer, and showcases the company’s GORE-TEX© leather upper which provide unmatched weather resistance with cushioning insoles resulting in superior, lasting comfort.

“Since the first ECCO Golf collection, men worldwide have gravitated to the traditional looks of our World Class shoe,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “With this ever-popular option, our focus was to also a high-end, quality shoe with sophisticated moisture management properties, while creating a fit that accommodates a wide range of foot types.”

Additional performance features of the World Class GTX include:

  • Comfort Fiber System – A specialist ECCO insole that increases air circulation, creating a fresh, cool inner climate.
  • Water-Repellent – The leather outsole combines with TPU in the heel area, contributing to unparalleled performance and a distinctive look.
