If it's a new piece of golf equipment for 2021, then Hannah Holden has covered it here
New golf equipment 2021: Ecco
Always one of my favourite releases of the year – and the Ecco Biom H4 do not disappoint.
For my money these are the best looking shoes Ecco have ever brought to the market. The sporty trainer style with the bright pops of colour on the side and the sole make this a very attractive model.
So what’s new in this generation of Biom Hybrid?
To be honest there is so much technology in this shoe it is hard to know where to start.
The most obvious thing is the modern new trainer like shape which is possible thanks to the brand new last the shoe was built on. (A last is an object which mimics the shape of a foot which shoes are then built on.)
Talking of shaping, the heel of the shoe is also slightly wider to give you more stability and extended ground contact.
And – perhaps most importantly in terms of performance – is the remodelled sole. It has three key sections for stability and traction, ground penetration, and rotational support. Overall the big focus here is on the mid foot and heel stability.
As with all Ecco shoes the sole is made from fluidform technology allowing it to be built directly onto the upper without any glue or stitching. This helps with cushioning and also makes the shoe more flexible.
You can see we have Ecco’s premium yak leather on the upper which is extremely strong and durable. And of course the Gore-Tex technology to make these 100% waterproof.
Another really cool technology is called ‘x-tense invisible’ which links the sole directly to the laces for more stability.
These are available in both men’s and women’s and I can’t wait to get out on the course with these soon so I can give you my full review.
- RRP: £170 (men’s); £160 (women’s)
These beauties are a special edition version of the Ecco S-Three and pay homage to Henrik Stenson’s nickname. That ice blue and white sole is a stroke of genius.
When shoes are endorsed by the Iceman himself you know they are going to be good – but I have to say these are super cool. Sorry. I couldn’t help myself.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. Ecco have also added seven new colourways to the S-Three offering which will be available from spring 2021.
