Ecco Street Premier

9 posts in this topic

I really like these shoes and they feel comfortable as hell.  I wouldn't lose too much sleep over dropping $140 on a pair of golf shoes when I'm replacing the soft spikes once or twice per year.  But with this shoe, you can't.  Once the hard rubber is gone, it's gone.

Anyone have experience playing these shoes?  Any idea how many rounds you really get out of them?

I just bought a pair of them this weekend and with the weather in the midwest looks like I won't be able to try them out for several more weeks.  I do have a pair of Foot Joy spikeless shoes that are at least 10 years old and I still were them from time to time.  They show wear but not so much as to not still wear them, I'm hoping for the same kind of longevity from the ECCO.

From my research on these shoes and various others, these are by far the most comfortable pair of shoes Ive ever worn.  In response to the first post, I spoke to a store clerk and learned something interesting.  apparently, you can call ecco's customer service and have the bottom rubber replaced. For how much I dont really recall.  Supposedly, you send the shoes to Ecco and they replace the bottom rubber.  I hope this help a little.

I didn't like that they don't come in a wide size. There in wierd sizing, and i have a wider foot, so i would have to go up a size and lace them tight, but they still slip on my feet.

A few days back, I talked to a friend of mine who is a pro.  Ironically, he has a couple pair of these and said they last very, VERY well.  So I pulled the trigger and bought some.  They may look a little goofy, but feel pretty damn good.

As for the "wide foot" issue, I've got flat feet and look for wide-soled or high arch shoes in size 11.  In this case, I bought what Ecco equates to 11-11.5 US and they seem fine.

I thought they were a little tight at first, but after one round, they seemed to stretch out just right.  Now they feel perfect.  I'm planning on buying a second pair just because the first has worked out so well!

Having played a couple rounds with them now, I can say they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever played in.

This type of shoe is really catching on. I saw where Ashworth is coming out with a whole line of shoes to compete with the Street Premier this summer. Some other company is coming out with a line also, but I can’t remember who it was.

    • Pace Problem
      Do I think our GM and Pro would adopt what I am suggesting as a course policy? No.  
    • New shoes
      I am looking for a new pair pair of golf shoes.  Since I am a cheapskate trying to stay under $100. Any ideas I like to walk and need them to be waterproof. 
    • Pace Problem
      You (or your mangers) still don't seem to understand that catching another group and playing through them is slower for both groups (and for any groups following them) than if they are all simply required by policy to keep the pace.  The rules are just swell, but playing through should only be something that happens in cases with extenuating circumstances, not a regular habit.  The Rules of Golf were never intended to be used as an excuse for a chronic inability to keep pace with the course. When the course allows certain groups make a habit of playing so slowly that other groups overtake them and have to play through, then you have failed in establishing and maintaining an effective pace of play policy.  That policy is mired in a time warp from the era when courses were never full.  Those days no longer exist and different steps must be taken if a course is really serious about their pace of play.  It's apparent that your course is more concerned about the minority than they are about the majority.  I hope that doesn't eventually bite them in the behind.
    • Pace Problem
      Again, that's been our tactic for seven years, and has not generally worked.  There is not a suggestion made in this thread that we don't do or haven't tried tom speed slow groups up.  Some do, but mostly slow groups stay slow. As a rule of thumb, marshaling 18 holes takes about an hour.  If you attempt to "teach" the first time around, and then discover that you're a bad teacher or the slow group is a bad student when you come back around, by the time you "enforce", you have lost half a round of golf and you have forced faster groups to play the slower group's pace. When I see a group going to 9 at 2 1/2 hours, I tend to say, 'Oh, shit." to myself, because I know we've lost the Pace and it's next to impossible to get it back until that group has left the course.  Sadly, because of staffing cutbacks, that's often the case.  When I say something to the GM or Pro like, "If you want a good pace, you have to be out there from the beginning," it is not received well. If, OTOH, our policy is Pace has Priority on the Course, let faster groups play through, and that is what they hear when they pay, and from the Starter, and that's what the sign in the carts' signholder says, they have no leg to stand on the first time the marshal comes by and sees groups piled up behind a slow group. Yeah, I know, it's different than what everyone's used to. But if you always do what you've always done, you always get what you've always got.

      I am indeed, All down the west coast here in ayrshire there are some fantastic courses and I always feel blessed to have played most of them. I recently played round the kintyre course at Turnberry for the first time it was a real gem. Sadly the 70mph winds did nothing to help scoring leading to a morale sapping 120 score but a great track none the less. I spent my youth years playing in troon on the public owned courses. A student of the links!
