Ecco has introduced it men’s Ultra Performance golf shoe that features its patent-pending Direct-Injected stability system, one-piece construction and an outsole design for support, comfort, flexibility and traction throughout the swing.
Ultra Performance is designed to work in tandem with natural features of the human foot. Its stability system is centred around an anatomical last that works with a lightweight, wrap-around support structure that is fused into the midsole and upper.
“Our Direct-Injection technology creates a flexible, holistic support system that cradles the foot from below and continues up and around the shoe to optimize stability and increase power,” said Stefan Guest, the lead designer for Ecco’s golf division.
Ultra Performance features an internal anatomical nylon/steel stabilizer and an external Visible Carbon Fibre Reinforced TPU Stabilizer. These elements are designed to work in conjunction to cradle the arch and outside of the foot for support and prevent excessive torsion flex during the swing.
Midfoot stabilization is enhanced by a 20 per cent lighter, direct-injected polyurethane that is used to create a one-piece, wrap-around Swing Stability System to cradle the foot, provide support and stabilize the heel.
Independent flex between the toes is created through distinct inner and outer flex zones to provide better feel and stability and allow the sole to maintain better ground contact during the swing.
A lightweight, triple-density outsole is designed to provide walking comfort through the use of stability islands that feature soft TPU in the flex areas and hard TPU in areas where grip and traction are required.
