As is the case with all of the golf shoes in Ecco Golf’s Spring/Summer 2017 Collection, Ecco Casual Hybrid is crafted at company-owned factories that utilise the direct injection process to bond the upper and outsole unit, creating a one-piece shoe without the use of glue or stitching. Benefits of this include flexibility, durability and a lightweight construction.

Ecco Golf shoes are worn in competition around the world by Fred Couples, Ernie Els, Smylie Kaufman, Peter Hanson, Thomas Bjørn, Lydia Ko, Minjee Lee, Caroline Masson, Gerina Piller, among others.

The new Casual Hybrid shoes have an RRP of £110.
