Ecco Peach

Anything that Freddie Couples endorses is fine by us.

Posted Apr 14, 2010 by The Wish List


Virtually every company in the business of making footwear for golf has tried its hand at designing a casual shoe. Trouble is, instead of looking like something Tony Hawk might wear (ask your children, or grandchildren), they invariably resemble the sort of items you see in the sales bin at Brantano.

Trust Ecco to come up with the solution - the Golf Street shoe, as worn by suburban warrior Freddie Couples. Admittedly, Freddie's grinding days are long gone (you know who to ask...) and Ecco does like to approach its design with a characteristically sensible Scandinavian leaning. In short, they work - great quality leather, excellent stability and good to look at without trying too hard.

That's particularly reassuring if you're obsessive enough to remember the high-profile launch by J.Lindeberg (the best-looking concrete shoe ever made) and can't quite get over the idea of wearing Pumas (the Jimmy Choos of the eastern-European economic migrant community).

Sorry, we digress. Truth is, we used to love Ecco, then we thought they'd lost the plot and are delighted to have been proved wrong. Demand for the Golf Street shoe (priced around the £90 mark) is currently outstripping supply, so get there before the skaters.
