For its Autumn/Winter 2022 collection available Oct. 1, Ecco Golf introduced a next-generation Biom G5 shoe, including one custom-designed by LPGA legend Lydia Ko.
Fashioned from embossed Ecco performance leather and a sporty mesh, the shoe has a low toe profile for a sleeker silhouette. The Biom G5 is engineered with Zarma-Tour spikes, which are combined with innovative hybrid grooves for traction and stability. Gore-Tex offers 100 percent waterproof protection.
The Biom “natural motion” technology with an updated last allows the foot to move more naturally while supplying anatomical, low-to-the-ground support and stability as well as a snug fit that’s easily adjustable with a BOA lacing system. The FluidForm comfort technology provides a balance of cushioning and rebound.
“Following the huge success of Biom G3 and Biom H4, the next iteration of our cleated Biom series needed to be a true step up in both comfort and technology, and this is something we truly feel we’ve achieved with the Biom G5,” said Andrzej Bikowski, head of design for Ecco Golf.
Reflecting both her personality and dual-nationality roots, Lydia Ko’s Ecco Biom G5 has hibiscus flowers styled on one side of the shoe and silver ferns on the other, paying homage to her country of birth (South Korea) and the country in which she grew up (New Zealand), respectively.
Ko’s signature is emblazoned on the inside of the shoe, along with her logo on the tongue.
“The features we have added to the Biom G5 are very close to my heart, and it’s going to be really cool walking the golf course week-in-week-out with the silver ferns and hibiscus flowers on my feet,” said Ko, who has 24 worldwide professional wins including two majors. “Hopefully I’ll be wearing them to lift plenty more trophies in the future.”
The Ecco Biom G5 shoes retail for $270 in both men’s and women’s models.
