ECCO Golf Introduces the New S-Lite Line

Recommended Posts

ECCO® GOLF Introduces S-LITE 
Revolutionary Design Creates Brand’s Lightest-Ever Leather Golf Shoe  
 
(LONDONDERRY, NH) – 
ECCO – a leading manufacturer of innovative footwear – unveils ECCO S-LITE, a one-of-a-kind hybrid shoe which breaks boundaries as the brand’s lightest-ever leather golf shoe.
 
ECCO S-LITE takes a fresh, innovative approach to golf shoe design by blending cutting-edge engineering and comfort to ensure an ultra-light on-course experience. A multi-injection production process offers a TPU outsole that’s 66% thinner than ECCO has previously created, perfect as a packable playing option.
 

“By owning our own tanneries and manufacturing processes, ECCO GOLF continues to find ways to deliver golfers truly distinctive footwear,” says Jesper Thuen, General Manager, ECCO GOLF USA. “This passion for performance and design is exemplified in S-LITE.”
 
A stylish, diamond-shaped embossing on the ECCO RICH TWO-TONE YAK leather upper reduces weight while increasing comfort, and a soft textile lining provides natural water repellency and breathability.
 
The E-DTS™ LITE outsole offers on-and-off course traction and durability with exceptional flexibility. A molded leather heel counter and inside toe reinforcement offer additional support ensuring stable footing throughout the swing.
 
Other unique features and benefits include:
  • Premium, durable ECCO YAK leather, made in the company’s own tanneries 
  • An award-winning E-DTS™ LITE hybrid outsole design that adds more than 100 traction studs and 800 traction angles for excellent grip in all playing conditions 
  • FLUIDFORM™ Technology which is a ‘state change’ process that uses specialized fluid materials to form around an anatomical last, ensuring a finely-tuned balance of cushioning and rebound, while also creating an integral, flexible and durable bond, without the compromises common with stitched or glued assemblies 
  • A PU midsole with a PU wing, wrapping the sides of the foot delivers stability on and off the course 
  • A premium soft leather foot bed that offers a soft feel and natural moisture management 
ECCO GOLF shoes are worn in competition around the world by European Ryder Cup Captain Thomas Bjørn, Fred Couples, Lydia Ko, Minjee Lee and Caroline Masson, among others.

They're very plain looking. I'm curious as to what they retail for? A couple years ago I looked at getting a pair of the ECCO Bioms, but the cost was just a little too rich for my blood.

I was actually one of the very early wearers of ECCO more than probably 15 years ago.   I think the original model were the Streets?

At the time they were $149 which was on the higher end of regular golf shoes at the time.  They were the most comfortable I had ever worn, and continued to wear them and pay for new models at $189 when they came out.   Why?  Well as I often tell people, shoes are the only piece of equipment that you use not only for every shot, but between every shot as well, so paying for comfort and quality is worth it to me.

All that said, I will have to say I think something major has changed in ECCO's design team over the last 5 or 6 years, I've tried at least 3 of the newer model over that time, and had to sell or give them away after one or two rounds.   They have completely lost the title of most comfortable shoes I've worn.     

What's weird is is I have a pair of dress shoes that look great with a suit, that are very comfortable and a pair of casual walking shoes that are pretty good as well   But seems to me, they have gone a different direction with their golf R&D that isn't up to the rest of the brand.

Any info about waterproofing? Lighter isn’t better if your feet get soaked.

"Natural water repellency" I'd say that's along the lines of "water resistant".
