What we say:

 

We were a bit surprised that the ECCO BIOM G 2 BOA GTX isn't identical to the BIOM G 2 GTX. We were expecting the only difference to be the BOA closure system. However, there are quite a few subtle differences in the shape of the upper that we really like. The Yak leather is the same and the design is similar, but not identical. Another minor difference is the inlsole. The traction system on the BIOM G 2 BOA GTX is the same as the BIOM G 2 GTX, which is pretty great. We're impressed, but not overly impressed with this golf shoe's performance. Given the fact that it is well over $200, we were expecting a bit more. Nonetheless, the BIOM G 2 BOA GTX is still pretty great, and recommended for mid to low handicappers craving style, durability and excellent grip.
