The simple yet effective outsole did a great job of being lightweight and flexible whilst offering serious traction on the course.
Innovation has always been imprinted in the DNA of Ecco. An example is the conception of the spikeless outsole, which changed the game of golf shoes. However, the brand proves that it is only the beginning. The Ecco S-Lite was crafted with a specific goal in mind - reduce the weight of the shoe by not compromising performance and comfort. Currently, it is the lightest model that the brand has in its roster and proof of another success for the Danish company.
An extremely flexible E-DTS Light technology is placed on the bottom of this golf shoe. It is composed of a flexible material that is durable and strong enough to endure each round. What is also fascinating about this is that it is 66% thinner than the usual outsole used on Ecco shoes. This characteristic improves the footing of the golfer because it brings the foot closer to the ground. One hundred studs are also scattered to guarantee stability and traction from the first tee to the clubhouse.
The midsole displays another breakthrough innovation that is unique to Ecco. Fluidform is a direct injection process that produces a special kind of anatomical last through the use of fluid materials.
Ecco continues to dominate the Yak leather game, and it has been prevalent on several items from the brand. This material is manufactured in the brand’s own tanneries to certify only the best quality there is.
What is different about the S-Lite is that it is embossed with diamond shapes to draw in lightweight breathability. Accentuating the heel is a contrasting leather, which prevents the foot from moving on each swing.
The spikeless construction of the Ecco S-Lite disguises this item as a lifestyle shoe, especially the way it is styled. The lightness of the shoe translates to its design as it is casual and cool. This shoe is ideally worn during summer or when the course is dry. Golfers can enjoy the options of wearing both trousers and shorts with these.
