The beautiful ECCO Biom G2 Golf shoes for women are so nice to look at. They have to be one of the nicest pairs of women’s golf shoes to come out in quite some time (Also available for men). If this was a competition for being the most attractive, the G2 would win most days of the week. However, in this game looks aren’t everything and a pretty face can only get you so far. It has to go much deeper than that. And thankfully, with ECCO, they usually do.
Being a spiked golf shoe (Zarma II Slim Locomotive), and now upgraded with a slimmer midsole, the Biom G2 are very stable and low profile. More streamlined in design and lower to the ground, the G2 are more like a super supportive, expensive slipper rather than a full blow golf “trainer”. By all accounts, the comfort level of the G2 is exceptional. The YAK Leather that’s used for the upper is soft, weatherproof and flexible. The G2 are considerably lighter in weight than the last edition.
Waterproof or not? As good as these golf shoes are, and they are a superb golf shoe, there are a few complaints regarding their ability to truly keep the wet weather out. The few complaints regarding this issue come mostly from the mens pairs.
Given the fact that when some buyers who complained to Ecco that there Biom Hybrids and G2’s were not waterproof and were actually offered waterproof sprays, it would appear that they are not 100% waterproof.
Although complaints regarding this issue are not widespread, and most buyers are very pleased with their purchase, it does seem strange how Ecco didn’t offer a refund or return to the people experiencing these problems with their shoes, but instead a waterproof spray which the buyer has to pay for.
Could it be a quality control issue that Ecco are aware of, or is it just that the shoes don’t hold up well in really wet conditions. If it’s a quality control issue its been going on for years so that seems unlikely. And reading ECCO descriptions for their Biom range it states the shoes offer good “weather protection”.
It never actually states they are 100% waterproof. So that’s something to be aware of. But lets not forget, for a lot of people the Ecco Biom range are considered as some of the best golf shoes ever made.
As mentioned before on this website. Due to their high price, Ecco golf shoes are not really for beginners or people in the novelty stage that are just curious about giving golf “A go”. Save your money and get something a lot cheaper in price but still very capable like the Puma Cat Spikeless, or the pretty Puma Organic Fusion Golf shoes. Looking for a spikeless Ecco golf shoe that has excellent reviews? Take a look at the BIOM Hybrid 2.
