What we say:
The ECCO BIOM H4 is our new favorite ECCO golf shoe! We've always been a fan of the BIOM Hybrid series, and this is by far the best one yet. In the past, we felt they lacked just a bit of support and overall performance. However, this time around, they hit the nail on the head. The BIOM Hybrid 4, in our humble opinion, is one of the most comfortable golf shoes out there. The FLUIDFORM system in the PU midsole feels awesome, and there's no doubt this golf shoe is perfect for walking the course, particularly on wet days, as the Gore-Tex upper ensures a totally dry foot. The traction system is largely the same as the BIOM Hybrid 3, consisting of three different zones, with each one serving a specific purpose. While the BIOM H4 is certainly not cheap, it is made of high quality leather and will definitely last a long time. In our eyes, the biggest improvement in this model is the support. While perhaps not enhancing the look of the shoe, the TPU inserts on the sides of the shoe really do add lateral stability. We recommend the ECCO BIOM Hybrid 4 for the low handicap golfer who demands the highest in performance and durability.
