It's been a long time since we've looked at a classically styled golf shoe here on CNG, and with its modern spikeless sole, we couldn't have asked for a better candidate in the category than the ECCO Tour Hybrid.
We've loved the cross functionality of the ECCO Golf Street since introduction. The Street's casual look and unsurpassed comfort have made it an all-time go-to CNG favorite that can be worn to and from the course.
Now comes the Tour Hybrid, which we think is the perfect compliment to the Street, one that provides a more sophisticated application, transitioning us from office space to tee box when required. The Tour Hybrid makes it easier for us to skin out of work (or perhaps a formal affair, because after all, wedding season is soon to be upon us like a demon) on a brilliant summer's day for an emergency nine or 18. We like that, a lot.
The Tour Hybrid also comes in a wingtip and a saddle design, but we like the versatile look of the black / titanium / subtle purple colorway. These will pair beautifully with our favorite tartan trousers, and are certainly stealthy enough to be 'suitable' for office wear.
We're confident in the shoe's ability to keep us dry thanks to ECCO's Hydromax technology (Gortex is available on GTX model), and we're looking forward to the out-of-the-box comfort experience for which ECCO is known. All that remains is the much anticipated spring opening of area courses so we can put these beauties in play. We'll report back on performance when we do!
