Gore-Tex technology has long been found in some of the most effective golf outerwear on the market.
Now, thanks to a collaboration with Ecco Golf and its commitment to pushing boundaries through innovation, Gore technical know-how is being brought to the golf shoe, in the form of the Ecco Cool.
Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at Ecco, explains:
Being able to provide complete breathability without compromising on waterproof protection is a genuine first in the golf footwear sector.
We’re truly excited about this revolutionary new development and can’t wait for golfers to experience the exceptional comfort, breathability, and protection that Ecco Cool provides.
The shoe is based around Gore-Tex Surround technology, an advanced air channeling system within the grid-shaped sole structure, which provides 360° breathability without impacting waterproof protection.
The grid-structure forms the basis for the direct injected midsole, with air able to flow through a series of channels, and this section of the shoe also provides comfort, flexibility and cushioning.
An upper Gore-Tex membrane combines with Ecco's Hydromax treated leather that is naturally soft, breathable and strong and gives a premium finish to the Ecco Cool.
The shoe is fitted with Champ Slim-Lok spikes and has a removable inlay sole which offers extra width for those who require it.
