The epitome of maximized minimalism, BIOM Zero is the lightest (less than 10 ounces), most flexible and low-profile ECCO golf shoe ever created. The Danish-based shoe company says it's as close as you can get to playing barefoot.
Designed using scans of feet from 2,500 athletes, it promotes a natural foot position while providing full length foot support to ensure unrivalled comfort.
This minimalist inspired men’s golf shoe is made with a premium Caldera leather upper which is stain resistant, durable and exceptionally easy to clean and features the water-repellent Hydromax treatment. The second skin leather lining wicks away moisture while remaining remarkably soft and creating a rich, supple interior.
Built atop the patented Street outsole featuring the ECCO dynamic traction system (E-dts), its unique, Direct-Injected construction showcases unrivalled flexibility via a one-piece shoe built without glue or stitching while the zero heel drop brings players closer to the ground than any other ECCO golf shoe.
Unveiled at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, the BIOM Zero golf shoe is a limited-edition style available in two colors - black or white - and comes with a suggested retail price of $190 (US).
