I'm not a fan of the Casual line from Ecco. They're so much cheaper looking and feeling than the standard golf shoes.

Just my opinion, tho. Ecco makes a great golf shoe, period.

Love my Eccos. Threw out my Foot Joys at the beginning of the year. Have two pairs of Eccos, the Casual Cool Ribbon and the Casual Cool Hydromax. Might try a pair of the Adidas Tour shoes or the Pumas down the line, but will have at least one pair of Eccos regardless.

Mine are like slippers - although lambasted on here for being ugly (the shoes, not me) I think they are pretty nice (cognac hydromax's, could be known as City Classic in the USA) looking but to be honest the comfort is the main issue.

I'm looking for a pair of Classic Saddle GTXs in white or white/cognac too and may have just found the puppies. US prices are much cheaper than the UK, even with delivery - it's just a question of dodging the import duty which is down to luck.

I saw a guy at the club with the Ribbon ones, they look better in the flesh than they do in pics. Not sure they are my thing but they looked ok.

That was MG, although "young" is stretching it a bit, I guess everything is relative.

Won't Orange ones attract the bears WBL?

So plain white or the white/cognac saddle? decsions, decisions.

I own a pair of Casual Cools after a different brand of shoes rubbed a blister the size of a .50 cent piece on my left heel. Good shoes but it seems the cushioning is a bit thin and it took a while to get used to the flat foot feel. Plus I have a tendenacy to roll my ankles unexpectedly due to the bottoms being more rounded on the transition from the sidewall to the tread. I will probably have another year with the shoes now but I can't say for sure I will go with Ecco's on the next pair. Walking comfort is #1 for me (waterproof #2) and they haven't been the most comfortable pair of golf shoes I have ever owned.

The Casual lineup is weak from Ecco. Don't judge them by that line alone. I suggest trying the more traditional line before weighing in.

You couldn't give me a pair of the Casual shoes for free. Just as you said, no ankle support, weak materials and no cushion.

The more I wear my Nike TW Tours, the more they become the most comfortable golf shoes I've ever owned.

I passed on the casual cool. Ive read a few things that say the spikes fall out of that line of shoes pretty easily.

I'm going to look at other lines of the Ecco's.
