Hannah Holden and Dan Murphy put the latest Ecco Biom model through its paces. Here's what they think


Ecco Biom C4 review: NCG verdict

Back over to Dan…

“Bear with me here. I know you have read a hundred golf shoe reviews referencing comfort.

“I find Ecco are in a class of their own in this area. It’s been suggested to me that Bioms just fit my particular foot shape very well. I can’t speak for you and your feet, but the C4s are a dream to wear for me.

“A significant new feature is the mesh sock – it works in the same way as football sock boots.

“I guess one of the biggest challenges for show manufacturers is the balance between comfort and stability. It’s very hard to offer both at the same time.

“Well, the Biom C4s give this a real go – there is certainly more shoe and more stability than previous Biom models I have worn.

“Crucially, you do feel low to the ground in these. I don’t think, as a golfer, you want to feel like you are an inch taller when you put your golf shoes on and you don’t with the C4s.

“It’s too early to comment on durability – in my previous experience a major Ecco strength – but with a Gore-Tex surround construction and something called an ‘Ecco Exhaust Grip’ to push fresh air towards the soles of your feet, you can certainly rely on a breathable as well as waterproof shoe.”

“Worth the significant investment? It’s a yes from me – the Biom C4s are a fitting (pun intended) addition to the Biom Hybrid lineage.”
