  1. Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 Walking the floor of the 2015 PGA Show this past January, I couldn't help but notice a buzz that consumed one particular booth inside the Orange County Convention Center. I am uncertain if it was the presence of their touring professionals signing autographs, or the unveiling of the new shoes set to launch this year. The atmosphere was remarkable, and I had the opportunity to spend some time inside the booth. One particular shoe captured my attention almost immediately. The Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 was that shoe and is the second coming of an already successful model for the Danish company. The Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 launched this past spring, and I had the opportunity to give the shoe a closer look. If you have read any of my shoe previews in the past, you know I am a connoisseur of the low profile, minimalist shoes. There is just something about their feel, a natural connection between your feet and the turf. For the past five years, they've been the style of shoe I have gravitated toward. The wider toe box and slipper-like comfort has a proven track record with my size 10 hooves. Out of the box, the second coming of the Biom Hybrid is 15% lighter than the original. Like my three iron off the tight fairway grass, the engineers thinned out the midsole so the foot is closer to the turf. A consistent notable feature in Ecco shoes is the out of the box comfort factor. It is difficult to find any shoemaker in the game that does this better. On the foot, and laced up, the Biom Hybrid 2 feels like shoe that's had 30 rounds on them. Ecco golf shoes are constructed by using what Ecco calls an “Advanced Direct-Injection Process.” This process is the marriage of the upper and outsole without the use of glue or stitching. Ecco explains this is important for three reasons, a water-tight seal, outstanding flexibility, and immediate comfort. The Biom Hybrid 2 are designed using Yak Leather. Yak looks and feels a bit more weathered giving it a natural or raw look to the leather. Yak is three times tougher than regular cowhide. Ecco utilizes this in golf shoes for its abrasion resistance as well as flexibility. Ecco treats the leather with a formula they call “Hydromax” for anti-stain and water resistance. Flipping the shoe over, the Biom Hybrid 2 incorporates a “Dual-Density” outsole which is harder in the stability areas, and softer where stability is less important. The maximization of comfort. Ecco scanned the feet of 2,500 athletes (missed the invite) in the design of an anatomically shaped last. On the course, the Biom Hybrid are one of the most comfortable and flexible shoes I've worn. With a wider toe box is unrestrictive and allows the toes to move with freedom. The sole of the shoe wraps up around the toe area to protect against premature wear from the follow-through of the golf swing. The Biom Hybrid 2 shoes are an absolute joy to play the game in. In your hands, the design elements are readily apparent, it's a well designed, well constructed shoe that is one of the most comfortable I've worn. MSRP: $195 www.eccousa.com
