I'm looking at Ecco Biom Hybrid 2 shoes.  For some reason, Ecco always combines black with some crap color like red or purple.  They will look OK if you're wearing red or purple, but not so great otherwise.  

 

I noticed that the women's version has nice white or silver accents - likely to match everything.  But they kind of look like girl's shoes.  Any guy wear women's golf shoes and pull it off?

 

Women always get away with this kind of stuff, but I don't think it works so well the other way around.

It doesn't bother you if you are wearing... say Navy blue and gray or tan?  This is the fashion thread, after all.

I typically wear black or grey pants/shorts so it matches the colors I wear at least partially. I actually looked at them the laces are red, which bugs me, but the shoes are black with grey backs, like in your mens picture. The red laces don't make sense to me but they are just laces. I normally wear grey, black, blue and occasionally white so the black and grey work for me. I will change the laces out at some point but they do not bother me that much. I'm not a loud mouth clothing guy so what I wear they work with. I wear a grey and white hat most rounds so I try to tie the grey from the shoes into what I wear. I probably look like an idiot to those that are really into fashion.

The black/silver version of that shoe doesn't scream "women's shoe" to me. If you were wearing those on the course I wouldn't give them a second look. If you find a size that fits, and they are comfortable, wear em.

I agree they don't look like a woman's shoe.

I haven't ever tried it, but there's been many times I've liked the women's colorway better than the mens.  Not just shoes either, happens with clubs a lot too.

 

Are there any stores nearby where you could try on the womens version and see if you can find a size that fits?  I actually have no idea if they are shaped the same or not.

Now if you had not told it I would have never guessed those were women's shoes. Naaw never have tried it because I do not think there are many women that wear my size 13 wide. But I have been known to wear a pink Bridgestone cap and I do rock Pink laces in my white FJs. Of course that is for cancer research and awareness

That there is a big woman.
Give her a mulligan if needed.

As others have said. Never tried it but if it fits.
Why not.

+1 to this. The only thing you'd wanna look out for its the structure may be different and it might hurt your feet. I think maybe they have higher arches and a slimmer fit than men.

Think how women's shirts fit only for shoes. Even though it's technically the right size, it's just not quite right.

I wear wide in men's shoes. Would need extra extra wide if I were to get women's.

Personally I like the look of the men's shoes pictured. But I also don't really match my clothing and just grab the first pair of shoes I see when I'm heading out the door

Not an issue for me- I am (as many men are) color-blind, or at least have a significant color weakness - those circles with dots inside them that have numbers like this one...

 

 

 

 

Well, I cant see many of them... so silver accents on your shoes, yea, go ahead...
