The Ecco Tour Hybrid is a perfect blend of form and function for modern golfers. Some will love the sporty look of certain golf shoes, but for most there is always an element of golf shoes needing to look more like regular shoes, even if they are white.
The street style shoe pioneered by Ecco started a new market sector that is growing all the time. The moulded sole that they use on the Ecco Street shoe is now under the classic design of the Tour Hybrid and we think Ecco should be on to a winner with this model.
The sole features a myriad of traction points and the grip is very good for this type of sole, particularly in dry conditions. It holds it's own in the wet even though there was a little bit of foot movement from over-energetic swings when on a slightly moist links course.
Whilst grip is important, these types of shoes are more about comfort and this is where the Ecco Tour Hybrid comes into its own. Ecco have always been renowned for making comfortable shoes and with the leather upper combined with a impact softening sole the Tour Hybrid is one of the most comfortable shoes in the market, especially on firmer ground.
The gore-tex upper does a very good job at keeping the rain out and your feet dry. With a choice of 3 styles including an excellent classic brogue you will find a style to suit as you move seamlessly from the course to the clubhouse.
Unusually for Ecco shoes, you will need to break you shoes in over time as we found that it takes some time to soften the shoe for regular wearing. Do that and you will be rewarded with one of the best shoes in the market that we could see being a classic.
