ECCO golf shoes are among the most trusted and popular. They provide an array of styles from casual to classic to performance. ECCO uses a direct injection process for binding the upper to the sole without the need for glue or stitching. Golf Pro Caroline Masson sums it up when she says that ECCO shoes not only provide all the necessary traction, comfort and stability, but also look outstanding. We’ve placed them in order from our highest ranked to lowest ranked shoes. This ranking combines style, comfort, breathability, waterproofing, traction, support and value. The shoes at the top of the list don’t only offer awesome performance, but offer great value as well, which basically means they’re accurately priced for what you get. As you can see, the GOLF BIOM C4 is our favorite, brilliantly combining waterproofing and breathability.
Ecco Product Review
ECCO GOLF BIOM C4
Breathable comfort and innovative performance are mixed with a contemporary, sneaker-style aesthetic in the ECCO MEN’S GOLF BIOM C4, the next generation of the BIOM COOL PRO.
Readers say Ecco makes some of the most comfortable travel shoes and constantly recommend them for trips where lots of standing and walking is involved. Their shoes feature an anatomical shape, with moderate arch support, super soft footbeds, and light, flexible soles.
While readers say they’re a bit on the narrower side, a lot of readers with wide feet say they fit really well! Plus, the inlay soles in the sneakers and boots are removable, which adds some extra width.
One TFG shares some great tips on how to determine the fit of Eccos. “Honestly, you can’t go wrong with Ecco! Some have a rounder toe box and others have a more narrow, almond-shaped toe box. I’d check which shape your most comfortable pair of shoes currently have and let that help narrow down the decision. If you have especially narrow feet or a high arch, you may prefer the lace-up Soft 7s because you can adjust the tightness with the laces. They’re all fantastic choices though!”
ECCO BIOM H4
Whether you’re spending the day sightseeing, going on a walking tour, or meandering through museums, you’ll want to make sure your feet are happy! This is why so many readers love Ecco – they’re super supportive and great for walking long distances. And because they’re so sturdy, they’re amazing for walking over cobblestone streets!
Flat-footed TFGs say the footbeds couldn’t be more comfortable, while many readers with high arches report feeling supported in them, too! Their high-quality materials are sturdy yet soft on your feet, and whether you’re lacing up sneakers, slipping into loafers, or strapping yourself into sandals, your feet will feel snug, secure, and ready to take on the day’s adventures!
One reader says, “I love mine and have them in several colors. I have walked all over Europe in them, day after day, and find them very supportive and comfortable. I’ve had bouts of plantar fasciitis in the past, but never while wearing this shoe. I find them the perfect shoe for travel.”
Another reader shares her personalized way of wearing Ecco, “I love mine! Bought one size larger than I need, added an extra Ecco insole (which I can remove if my feet swell) and I’ve worn them for entire days and evenings of mega walking all over Europe and the Middle East.”
They’re High Quality
Ecco shoes are high quality and hold up extremely well over time. Many readers say they’ve had theirs for years, and they still feel good, support their feet, AND look really nice!
Tons of Ecco reviews in the TFG community can attest to this! One reader says of her Yucatan sandals, “I wear my Eccos 300+ days of the year. I climb steep terrain and cobblestones, go in the sea with them, and throw them in the washing machine. And I’ve been wearing them many years!”
They’re super durable and don’t show signs of wear very easily. In their Ecco shoe reviews, readers rave about the craftsmanship, down to the laces, adjustable straps, zippers, and other little details that make these popular shoes so awesome!
Pros and Cons
Ecco shoes are known for their stylish and contemporary look, with clean lines and beautiful leather. They have solid construction and tons of style, all at a great price point.
Many Ecco wearers in the TFG community say that there was no break-in period with their shoes and that they were instantly comfortable! (Overall; however, it’s always recommended that you break in ALL shoes before )
Some readers shared different experiences with the fit of Ecco shoes. For example, one reader says, “I’ve worn Ecco sandals for-ev-er but Ecco shoes and sneakers are too narrow for me.” A lot of readers have reported that other styles, such as the Soft 7 slip on and most of their sandal options, have roomier toe boxes and are great for wide feet.
(TFG reader pro tip: The men’s version of the popular Soft 7 sneaker looks exactly the same, but has a slightly wider fit!)
If your feet require ample arch support and a good amount of cushion in the footbed, these may not be the best choice for you. Though, if you’re heading to Europe, one reader says, “A sturdy shoe rather than a cushy one was better for me on cobblestones.”
Overall, readers with feet of all shapes and sizes have said their feet feel supported and comfortable in Eccos! And there are so many gorgeous styles to choose from to amp up your travel looks!
