ECCO has announced the signing of German star Marcel Siem, who will wear the brand’s luxurious golf shoes in competitions worldwide and showcase the ECCO logo on his headwear.
A three-time winner on the European Tour – most recently the 2013 Trophée Hassan II – Siem is currently ranked number 58 in the Official World Golf Rankings.
The 32-year-old plays a global schedule that includes a significant number of PGA Tour events, with his best finish this year a T10 at the Valero Texas Open in April.
“The ECCO brand is remarkably well known and respected for the quality of its shoes throughout Germany and the rest of northern Europe,” says Siem.
“This is especially true of the golf collection and the Tour Hybrid in particular, which looks like a traditional shoe but offers me the convenience of a spikeless outsole.”
The Tour Hybrid features a classic leather upper design atop the award-winning Street outsole featuring the ECCO dynamic traction system (E-dts).
It combines hand-crafted elegance with advanced shoemaking technologies to create a style which uniquely and seamlessly transitions from the boardroom to the car to the country club.
“Marcel finished just outside the top-10 in Europe last year and has played at an impressive level on the PGA Tour as well in 2013,” says Jesper Thuen, ECCO Global Sponsorship and PR Manager. “Having him on our team will further strengthen ECCO Golf brand awareness in key markets worldwide.”
ECCO golf shoes are also worn in competition by golfers Fred Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn, Thongchai Jaidee and Stuart Appleby, among more.
