Press Release

Ultimate Walking Comfort Ensured by Lightweight,
Flexible and Low-Profile Design Featuring Patented Street Hybrid Outsole

(MARKHAM, ONTARIO) – Danish brand ECCO – a leading global manufacturer of innovative footwear – announces that the limited-edition BIOM Zero golf shoe is now available for consumer purchases nationwide.
The lightest, most minimal golf style ECCO has ever produced, BIOM Zero weighs less than 10 ounces. Offered in two colors, it’s built atop the patented Street hybrid outsole featuring the ECCO dynamic traction system (E-dts). Its unrivalled flexibility and an exceptionally low profile combine to provide full-length foot support and a Natural Motion experience that benefits the wearer.

“Our brand has been heralded for redefining comfort and now we’re taking that to the next level,” says Michael Waack, Head of Global Golf at ECCO. “We named BIOM Zero after the zero heel drop, but also because it’s as close as you can get to a golf shoe that feels like wearing nothing and playing barefoot.”

Additional features and benefits of BIOM Zero, which retails for $190, include:

BIOM Technology – Anatomical shoe last that promotes a natural foot position

Low-Profile – Closest to the ground of any ECCO golf shoe

Caldera Leather Uppers – Full grain, stain resistant and easy-to-clean

Hydromax™ – Premium, tanned-in water-resistant treatment guaranteed to last

Second Skin Leather Lining – Wicks moisture while creating a rich, supple interior

Direct Injected Midsole – A process, unique to ECCO in golf, that provides superior cushioning, stability and comfort via a one-piece shoe built without glue or stitching

ECCO golf shoes are preferred by discerning players worldwide, and worn in competition by scores of Tour stars, including Fred Couples, Graeme McDowell, Thomas Bjorn, Thongchai Jaidee, Stuart Appleby, Andreas Hartø, JB Hansen, Belén Mozo, Gerina Piller, Caroline Masson and Line Vedel Hansen.
