What we say:

 

The ECCO BIOM Hybrid 3 GTX boasts new, innovative technology. It's refreshing to see ECCO mix it up a bit, not necessarily in terms of style, but certainly in terms of technology. The outsole is the talking point of the BIOM Hybrid 3 GTX. It basically consists of 3 different areas, or zones, with each zone having a different traction pattern. This allows the sole to grip in the right areas, but also flex more in others, which creates awesome grip and comfort. We would recommend this shoe because of this technology. Particularly if you find yourself walking the course quite regularly. The support isn't the best, but no worse than average. All in all, we're impressed with what ECCO has done with the BIOM Hybrid 3 GTX.
