ECCO has launched its Street EVO One, which its describes as a a performance hybrid golf shoe combining the Danish company’s Dynamic Traction System (E-DTS) with an array of proprietary stabilization features. ECCO basically is the company that started the “street shoe” trend in golf shoes today, with PGA Tour star Fred Couples being its marquee player.
The Street EVO One (MSRP $160) features a Direct-injected midsole with an integrated shank piece. This design, according to ECCO, cups and cushions a player’s heel, delivering comfort and torsional support while creating an exceptionally stable platform from which golfers can power through each shot.
Offering a slightly wider platform than previous versions of the best-selling Golf Street model, Street EVO One is built atop a patented outsole configuration of approximately 100 moulded traction bars and 800 traction angles. Constructed from TPU – a highly durable, wear-resistant material – these elements, ECCO says, provide superb, Tour-quality grip.
“The way Street EVO One looks, feels and plays puts it in a class by itself,” says Michael Waack, head of global golf at ECCO. “It’s yet another example of the advantages that come with our foot-first approach to designing and producing premium golf shoes.”
Street EVO One is offered in high-grade cow leather and genuine camel leather versions, both of which include the exclusive ECCO HYDROMAX tanned-in treatment for weather resistance.
