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.

    • When is the weather "too bad" to play?
      Its the same at Stoneleigh, recovered from aerification, and the rough just loved all the rain.  Member-Guest is next weekend, fairways will be important.
    • Jr Tournament play?
      For the junior tournaments where I worked as a rules official, the parents were not allowed near the players or their balls.  They had the status of being observers or fans, nothing more.  No coaching was allowed, and certainly they did not race ahead to the area where the balls lay after a stroke.  In fact the only carts allowed for family were for those who were disabled - all others walked.  Such potential interaction as you describe would not have been allowed.
    • The Dan Plan - 10,000 Hours to Become a Pro Golfer (Dan McLaughlin)
      Dan is the first to my knowledge to formally challenge the Talent Code, a non gifted individual who would commit to 10,000 hours of practice with the established goal of being a PGA Tour player.   Many members here that claim they want to be a pro golfer are younger kids who show some potential in the sport and are deluded or convinced into believing they have the raw talent required to become a professional.  I don't think we've had someone actually document their journey with the level of transparency Dan provided in the beginning of his "plan".   I started following him later in his plan and while I was initially rooting for him I eventually started to question his approach and commitment, as well as his transparency in his progress.  
    • Using the tee box markers?
      The player is not using equipment in an unusual manner since the  tee marker is not equipment - it is nothing more than an obstruction which is deemed to be fixed (i.e. immovable) when playing his first stroke from the teeing ground of the hole being played.  After that they are movable obstructions.   There is no prohibition about standing on an obstruction, immovable or movable, with one or both feet, when making a stroke as long as nothing is done that would constitute building a stance. As far as being a device, the all encompassing dictionary definition goes well beyond the meaning of the term as it is applied in the Rules of Golf.  A device is an obstruction, and it may be equipment if it meets that definition, but not all obstructions are equipment or devices. This is simply a case of trying to read into the rules something that isn't there.  If it isn't prohibited, then it is permitted.  I see nothing that would lead me to rule against putting one foot on or against a tee marker, provided that the tee marker doesn't move during the process.
    • Chipping from tight lies?
      I agree. Bounce is your friend. I had a pretty straight forward punch shot yesterday.  For short punch shots I like to use more of a pitch motion. An 8 iron has about 4 degrees of bounce. #NoGlide  In terms of difficult lies. I'd say a soggy fairway is the worst. I rather hit of concrete than soggy fairway. It's just tough to let the club glide when the ground has that much give to it.
