Who should buy the Ecco S Drive
Ecco keeps its golf line fresh by introducing pieces that are meant to turn second glances. It is a solid option if you:
- Need a shoe that stands out from the sea of monochromatic golf shoes with its patterned upper and use of vibrant colors.
- Need a shoe that brings value to its performance.
- Prefer a shoe that can achieve comfort, traction, and stability.
Direct-Injected Thermoplastic Polyurethane outsole
Proof that the Danish brand explores technologies, it is the only golf company that uses a Direct-Injected Thermoplastic Polyurethane outsole. It is known to last five times longer than rubber and is alsoideal for aggressive swings, and long-distance walking.
Quitting the spikes can be daunting to many, but Ecco proves that an alternative can pose benefits. The outsole of the S-Drive utilizes an Ecco Dynamic Traction System (E-DTS). This patented design features 100 lugs with 800 different traction angles. It is meant to deliver unbeatable traction on both wet and dry surfaces.
The insides of the shoe are placed with an inlay sole that encourages support and grip. While it is comfortable enough, golfers have the option to remove it for extra room.
Breathability at its finest
Most Ecco shoes utilize yak leather, but the S Drive substitutes it with a mix of lightweight mesh and microfiber. Both materials promote breathability while having structure and stability.
The S Drive may use the traditional lace-up, but it is far from the conventional. The asymmetrical and off-centered lacing allows a close-to-the foot and snug fit while using less material. It facilitates support and stability.
Keeping the water off is a must when it comes to golf. Ecco addresses that by formulating Hydromax into its list of innovations. The patented waterproofing system efficiently infuses paraffin and silicones during the tanning process to create a barrier that would last throughout the shoe’s shelf life.
