2009 Ecco shoes - fantastic?

For anyone looking for high end shoes this year check out Ecco's new range. Superb. Our Pro got them in last weekend and has shifted half the order already. Quality wise they are more than a match for Footjoy and seem to last for years unless badly abused.
Answers:
I really liked one of the Ecco shoes from last year. Can't remeber the name though, they were all whhite, about $150. They were very sharp looking shoes.
Instead saved a couple $$ and got DryJoy PRO. I live in upstateNy, short season. April-begining of Nov. They didn't even stay waterproof for that short time. By end of August they statred leaking. Quite disappointed.
Answers:
I've had the same pair of Ecco's for over 2 and half years. I play twice a week and there still going strong.
Never had a blister and they did not need breaking in either.
Answers:
Ecco is the only brand of shoes I use. I have a few pairs. The ones I like the most are the World Class Saddle GTX, but they cost quite a bit and wear faster than the more "pedestrian" models which I use for practice and rainy days.
Answers:
If you ever get a chance to try on the Ecco "World Class" line, do so. They may be the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever tried on, not just golf shoes. At over $400 they're a little steep, but I have a pair of Ecco work shoes I've been wearing for over 5 years, have resoled them twice, and they are still in great shape. They do make a quality product.
Answers:
I love my Ecco Golf shoes. Is it just me, or do they get MORE comfortable as time goes by?
Answers:
I just wish they had 1/2 sizes.

You do know that if you take your issue up with Footjoy, they'll fix it for you right? A quick call and you'd have a new pair of shoes.

A - company with a good quality control and good customer service
B - good quality control, poor customer service
C - poor quality control, good customer service
D - poor quality control, poor customer service
So it looks like FootJoy fits in category C, and Ecco fits in A (or B).

I'm no FJ fanboy. Just thought I'd point out the fact that they'd indeed rectify the situation. I'm all for keeping companies honest and holding them accountable for their product.
Just sayin'
Answers:
Ever since my first set of ECCO golf shoes I have thrown away countless FJ, Etonic, Nike, Adidas etc. etc. shoes. Nobody close for instant comfort and long term durability.
Answers:
Not just me then! Our ex Pro got them in after he owned a pair of their street shoes. He had disc trouble and found the non Golf shoes and trainers to be blessed relief.
Like Galvin Green waterproof gear the Scandinavians understand quality design and materials.
Answers:
At over $400 they're a little steep,
Finally a piece of golf equipment that is a lot cheaper in Europe than it is in the US.
I love their street shoes, And I think I will give their golf shoes a try as well, after reading all those reviews.

Well that is their "World Class" shoe. I'm on my second pair of the normal Ecco's which were more like $170 or so if I recall...

I'm a big Ecco fan and recently resolved to only buy Ecco golf shoes going forward. I've owned all of the top brands and without a doubt Eccos retain their form, comfort and water resistance the best. I notice with some of the other brands, they feel comfortable and supportive when you first buy them and then seem to lose all support and get mushy. This is especially true of the Adidas I own.
My Eccos, on the other hand, are not much different than when I bought them, and I have worn them for two seasons. By the way, someone gave me a tip a long time ago that really extends the life of all of your golf shoes; never wear the same pair 2 days in a row. If you play a lot, rotate your shoes and they will really last.
Answers:
everyone here who knows me....KNOWS I ONLY WEAR ECCO. Just got two more pair in the mail this week. I'm a little bit of an addict. It's gotten so bad that I buy pairs in 2's. That way...when one wears out, I can pull the new one out without skipping a beat. I just loaded up my trunk to stock my locker and i counted 14 pairs of Ecco's in rotation for this season. They are the only golf shoe that I can put on at 5:30 in the AM to start the day and take them off at sundown and not be in pain.
this will be the first season i am starting with all ECCO. the 4 final pair of Callaway's have finally bit the dust. Good Riddance!

I'll admit the Ecco shoes do look sharp but unfortunately no shoes are worth $400 or should I state that I would never pay that amount for golf spikes.

You can find them on ebay all the time.....depending on size, you can get them WELL under $200....
there are plenty listed now of the new model and older model( i think 2 years ago)...I have both versions of the World Class...no noteable difference....I wear 43..probably the most popular size, and I got them both for well under $200 each...
WELL WORTH THE $$$.....
Answers:
I think Ecco shoes are very nice but vastly overpriced and overrated. They are considerably heavier (to me at least) than most other shoes and don't fit as well as I would have thought.
IMO, Etonic's are Ecco's at a lower price with better fit and comfort. Anyone who doesn't want to pay $200 and up for top quality shoes should check them out.
Answers:
You can get some killer deals on Ebay right now. In the last two weeks I picked up a pair of World Class for $110 (retail $410) and a pair of Casual Cool Hydromax for $70 (retail $170). Includes shipping. Both pair new in the box.
Answers:
ECCO are very good shoes but at 2 -3 rounds per week I burn thru shoes every 6 months I walk /jog on the course to speed up my play and I get sweat rings on the shoes.
When they become slippers and the soles start to round off I get another pair.
I get my mileage from Footjoys just due to the cost to trash factor
Oh btw I bought a pair of Etonics.. once.. only wear them when in the cart with the wife golfing. Look good but poor to walk/jog in.
Answers:
Got 2 pairs from ebay, casual cool hydromax red/white and casual cool GTX white/orange.
Both great looking shoes and the most confortable by far.

Same thing here, bought 3 pairs of World Class Saddle GTX for $99 a piece! These are the ones made in Portugal, leather soles, Gore-Tex lined, top of the pop, best shoe out there. These are down to $250 at Zappos which is still a good deal for one of the best shoes ever built. The reason? Ecco is changing their line up with a more modern design.
Get 'em while they're hot!
Answers:
They are way too wide for me.
Answers:
Went to the outlets yesterday, and checked out the golf shoes at the Ecco store. Unfortunately the shoes don't fit my feet - the heel was slipping every time I took a step. Tried a smaller size, and it was way too tight. I was bummed, because the shoe was comfortable, but I can't wear them because of the heel.
Answers:
I Love my Eccos. I got my first pair this year at the Ecco Outlet in Atlantic City. I got the casual cool hydromax for $70 and they included a pack of replacement spikes and tool. The outlet store was 90% golf shoes and had a lot of good deals.

Not to threadjack here...but I have a question on fit. I am looking at a pair of ECCOs and find that I am somewhere between the 43 and 44. Both fit well, and maybe the 44 is a bit more comfortable because of a little more room. For those who have also experienced this, would you recommend going up or down in size?

Too small is definitely no good for your feet. Perhaps adding some type of over the counter orthotic or in-sole would snug up the 44s for you.

I might have to partake in a pair of these ASAP..
Answers:
I've already bought one pair of their shoes and before I even received them they already introduced more models i want. Damn them Ecco people.
Answers:
"to wide for me"....
"between 43 and 44"...
There are a few things you need to keep in mind about Ecco shoes:
They emply what's called a "Freedom fit" technology that is secure in the heal and generous in the toe box area. Their studies show this increases circulatoin and airflow and is a much better fit; allowing the toe area to breath, and leaving a small amount of room for the swelling that will take place during a round of golf.
Another thing to keep in mind is their different styles (classic, casual, performance, and formal) are actually different fits (they call them "lasts"). So be sure if you try one one of the shoes and it doesn't fit right... try a different style. Chances are you will find one that fits your foot great!
Answers:
I can never pass up an Ecco thread without throwing in my .02 worth. I LOVE THEM!!! I started with Ecco sandals about 8 years ago. Later that year, I bought a couple pair of dress shoes, the next year they released golf shoes here in the U.S.
I honestly think I was the first person in the state to have them. I have lost count of what pair I'm on. Not because they wear out, just because I'm too lazy to change the cleats, so when they wear out, I get a new pair I usually go through a season rotating between two or 3 pair. I have the dress style that I wear with pants, and the casual Hydromax that I wear with shorts. I also have about 4 everyday/business pairs and two pairs of sandals.
As others have said, they are hands down the most comfortable, I can have walked 36 holes in them, played 54 in one day and never a problem.
Answers:
i just got some new ecco casual cool hydromax off of ebay for $55..tried them on and wow...comfortable....love them already !
