What we say:

 

The ECCO BIOM Hybrid 3 is one of the pricier golf shoes on the market. It's very similar to its cousin, the BIOM Hybrid 3 GTX, save for a few minor differences. Both of them feature ECCO''s innovative traction design, which really does live up to all the hype. Along with awesome grip, this Tri-Fi-Grip outsole is also quite flexible which makes it great for walking. You'll also find solid waterproofing and pretty good all-around comfort with the BIOM Hybrid 3. We were a bit disappointed in the overall support of the shoe. For this price, we were hoping to feel a bit more secure during the swing. Nonetheless, if you're a low handicapper looking for a great fitting shoe with amazing spikeless traction, definitely consider the ECCO BIOM Hybrid 3. One of the advantages it has over its sister, the BIOM Hybrid 3 BOA, is that it is more versatile in terms of looks, and can be worn pretty much everywhere off the course.
