Ecco S-Lite Golf Shoe Launched

Ecco has always been at the forefront of golf shoe development and now comes the Danish manufacturer’s lightest ever creation in the Ecco S-Lite.

More training shoe in its looks, it is easy to see on first glimpse just why it is the lightest golf shoe Ecco has come up with. It is clear than comfort has been the key buzzword in the design of the S-Lite, which is a move into a new design for Ecco.

It’s a summer shoe and one which rightly gets the hybrid tag—part trainer, part golf shoe. And a seriously attractive option too. But don’t think there hasn’t been technological advances to help improve performance on the course, and there is much more to the hybrid tag than just the looks.

The key area in the design process was to save weight and Ecco has achieved that with a clever combination of Yak leather uppers (as used in all Ecco golf shoes), a unique breathable design and an extremely light outsole which takes you closer to the ground than ever before.

The uppers provide stability throughout a round on the course, but significantly they have been designed to provide comfort with a soft textile both water repellent and breathable at the same time.

The breathable upper includes a diamond-shape embossed into the shoe, making the Ecco S-Lite as light as can possibly be (or so it seems until the next generation is developed). The heel and toe areas have been reinforced, but the remainder of the uppers is light and ideal for comfort on the course.

The E-DTS Lite outsole also helps provide comfort off the course as well as on it, and that can be attributed partly to the fact it is 66 percent thinner than any other shoe in Ecco’s range with a TPU outsole. The design and savings made on the sole mean you are closer to the ground, but the durability of the product is not impacted.

The outsole comes with 100 traction studs to provide stability through the swing as well as 800 traction angles. The S-Lite therefore won’t just be the go-to shoes in dry conditions, because they perform equally well with some water underfoot.

There’s Fluidform Technology used to seamlessly bring the uppers and outsole together without the need for stitching or gluing, and that helps provide cushioning and rebound and a seriously impressive flexibility to the S-Lite shoe.

“Impeccably made from robust Ecco Yak leather and accented with diamond-shaped embossing for superior breathability, the Ecco S-Lite shoe is engineered for an incredibly light feel that lasts from first tee to the clubhouse,” is how Ecco described the new shoe.

“The flexible E-DTS Light outsole, moulded leather heel counter and wing-wrapped midsole offer enhanced stability and steadier footing as you swing, while Fluidform Technology absorbs shock and cushions as you walk the course.”

The S-Lite boasts real variety too with six colour options to choose from including white, grey, red and yellow to suit all tastes.
