Barefoot on the green

For those among you thinking along the lines of a young Robert Redford and Jane Fonda in the 60’s classic ‘Barefoot in the Park’, think again.

The title instead refers to Fred Couples’ recent golf victory and record making achievement as he became the first golfer to win a major championship wearing a hybrid shoe – and all without socks!

Ecco Golf StreetAs an Ecco Staff Player and global sporting icon, Couples wore the Golf Street Premier model at the Champions Tour’s Constellation Energy Senior Players Championship.

Not only did his performance secure Couples’ spot in the PGA Tour’s 2012 Players Championship, it also placed him alongside Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd as the only players to win both the Players Championship and a Senior Players Championship.

All this golfing prowess makes Fred Couples one cool customer, but it doesn’t explain why he went barefoot in his golf shoes?

The answer probably has to do with the fact that Ecco Golf Street shoes are the most comfortable golf shoes you can wear.

Quoted on golf.com, Ecco’s Jesper Thuen said, “No one has ever designed a shoe like this and Fred’s win validates its performance at the game’s highest levels. Ecco Golf Street is unique in that it grips in all conditions and can be worn throughout the day. The response from Tour players, celebrities and discerning consumers has just been phenomenal.”

Get sand in your shoes

Hot on the heels of signing Gerina Piller earlier this season, Ecco Shoes is now celebrating the addition of LPGA Tour Rookie Belen Mozo to its elite line up of staff players.

A perfect match – ECCO Golf signs Gerina Piller

ECCO signs Gerina Piller

ECCO signs Gerina Piller

It’s not just ECCO’s much talked about 2011 golf collection that has captured the attention of serious golfers this season. Now, an already impressive line up of ECCO golf staff players has grown with addition of LPGA Tour rookie Gerina Piller.

Taking up golf in her late teens, Piller is considered a later-comer to the sport but is now known for her explosive style and her length off the tee. After an outstanding performance in three consecutive seasons, Piller will tee up with some of the world’s best players in 2011 wearing Golf Street shoes and BIOM Golf shoes.

The Golf Street is a bright, funky and fun shoe ideal for a morning on the fairway or an afternoon in the shops. Available in three modern colours, the subtle patterning of this shoe makes it a stylish choice.

Most golfers won’t have missed the rave about the BIOM Golf shoe newly launched in 2011. A convention-breaking performance shoe, it is simply a must-have for serious golfers this season.

With the season almost underway and wearing ECCO on the fairways, newlywed Piller (who married PGA pro golfer Martin Piller in January) already has two perfect matches on her score card this year, on and off the green.
