Ecco S-Lite

A casual knock with friends in the height of summer is often where the best memories are made. For this, you need a lightweight, casual pair of shoes that you can wear to the course and after the round while also not weighing you down unnecessarily.

One of the lightest golf shoes on the market right now is the Ecco S-Lite. This is thanks to a multi-injection production process that forms a base 66 per cent thinner than any other TPU outsole the company has previously created.

The flexible, low-profile design helps you to really feel those subtle bumps and mounds while also pushing the 100 studs with 800 traction angles deeper into the ground for the grip you need when going after a big drive.

If you’re looking for support and stability, the S-Lite isn’t for you, but it is an ideal summer shoe that can we worn just as comfortably off the course as it can on the fairways.

The subtle diamond pattern on the uppers adds to the visual appeal, as to the leather details around the heel and on top of the tongue. The six colours range from traditional grey to vibrant yellow and red so you can easily match them with your outfit.

They’re not waterproof, but frankly, these shoes aren’t designed for rainy days, plus Ecco has many other models in its range that will combat the elements, some with the bar-setting Gore-Tex membrane.

We like how the S-Lite is lightweight but also a far cry from the trainer style many other lightweight golf shoes on the market posses. They demonstrate how a lightweight shoe can still be classy and sophisticated while also offering performance golfers expect to help them hit the shots they’ll remember for a long time.
