Ecco Golf Shoes Review

Ecco Classic Hydromax golf shoes are classic leather golf shoes with a city look. The shoes feature a water-repellent Hydromax leather, which Ecco developed. The shoes offer great stability that is derived from a direct-injected PU midsole, but they also are lightweight. The textile and microfiber lining offers waterproofing. They are anatomically shaped with 3 mm insole units, allowing them to fit like a glove. The shoes have a technically enhanced appearance that offers added stability and grip. These shoes come standard with stable soft spikes.


The Ecco Classic Hydromax are the most comfortable and stable golf shoes that I have worn in my 20 years of playing golf. They give me the most stability in my swing. They are also very handsome shoes; I get positive comments on them regularly.


These shoes are priced on the Ecco website at $190 for black and $160 for a coffee color. You can certainly find less expensive golf shoes on the market, though I think the price is worth it. The Ecco Classic Hydromax is available in only those two color options. I liked the coffee model, so that could be seen as a negative by some.

Bottom Line

When these shoes wear out, I would buy Ecco again. In fact, I will look at Ecco street shoes the next time I need a pair.
