Atwal Rocking Some Expensive Kicks

If you were watching the action from this past weeks Wyndham Championship you probably noticed the eventual winner Arjun Atwal rocking some pretty sweet looking ECCO kicks. Arjun Atwal's preference; the ECCO World Class GTX. A little pricey for me at ($495 Canadian), but here's why:

  • With FootJoy closing down its manufacturing plant in Massachusetts last year and no longer making FJ Classics, ECCO World Class GTX is the only leather-soled golf shoe produced by a major brand.
  •  Like all ECCO golf shoes, the World Class GTX is touched by more than 225 people during a labor intensive manufacturing process conducted exclusively at ECCO-owned facilities (also unique to ECCO in the golf footwear space)

Product details
  • ECCO World Class GTX
  • Available colors in Canada: Black, white, white/ascot (patent leather)
  • Soft, breathable uppers integrated with a GORE-TEX membrane for guaranteed weather resistance
  • Outstanding stability
  • Shock-absorbing insole
  • Direct-injected PU and leather welt midsole
  • Water-repellent leather outsole with cushioning TPU in the heel area
