The ECCO Biom H4 – is this ECCO's best ever golf shoe?
ECCO pioneered the spikeless golf shoe revolution back in 2010 when a 50-year-old Fred Couples almost won the Masters wearing what a lot of people thought were "tennis shoes". They weren't tennis shoes, they were ECCO Golf Street shoes, and they caused quite a stir.
"I would be halfway down the fairway and people weren't yelling about my shot or my swing, they were yelling, 'How do I get those shoes?!'" recalled Couples. "It was kind of comical... I'm trying to play the golf tournament, and everyone is worried about the shoes I'm wearing."
It started a revolution, with golfers from tour pros to high handicappers realising they could benefit from increased comfort and versatility by wearing spikeless shoes, without having to sacrifice anything in terms of performance.
The last decade has seen a sea change, with spikeless golf shoes now comfortably outselling spiked golf shoes.

And ECCO didn't just pave the way. The Danish brand have consistently produced some of the highest quality and most durable spikeless golf shoes on the market, not least with their best-selling golf shoe, the ECCO Biom.
ECCO never compromise on materials or build quality, and many golfers will attest that once you wear a pair of ECCO golf shoes, you never go back to any other brand.
Now, for 2021, ECCO have unveiled the latest generation of ECCO Biom, with the ECCO Biom H4, and we think it might just be their best golf shoe to date.

That's because the ECCO name has always guaranteed top quality construction, performance and durability, but the aesthetics have sometimes been solid, perhaps nothing to write home about. That's all changed with the ECCO Biom H4, which, in our opinion, is one of the best-looking golf shoes on the market.
But the ECCO Biom H4 isn't just a better looking version of the previous Biom H3. It boasts several new technologies and features that are designed to improve comfort and performance.
'Biom Natural Motion Technology' forms like a second skin around the foot, enabling it to move naturally and remain close to the ground.
The new 'ECCO MTN Grip' outsole, meanwhile, is made of three sections, providing the ideal blend of traction, stability and rotational support during the swing.
The enhancements aren't just noticeable during the swing, either. ECCO's 'FluidForm Direct Comfort Technology' offers a cushioned and responsive spring in your step, making them comfortable enough to wear for 36 holes with ease.
The leather upper is 100% waterproof, while Gore-Tex ensures breathability.
The ECCO Biom H4 comes in four stylish colourways for men: Black, White, Silver Grey, and White/Concrete.
Women can choose from: White, Limestone, Hibiscus, and White/Silver Grey.
The ECCO Biom H4 golf shoes are available now, RRP £170, at golf.ecco.com
