What we say:

 

The ECCO Golf Biom G3 Boa is exactly the same as the Golf Biom G3, except it utilizes the Boa fastening/closure sytem. It's only $10 more for this feature, and really allows for a more custom fit.  The Golf Biom G3 Boa is yet another really comfortable golf shoe from ECCO. Comfort is usually their top priority, and the Biom G3 Boa delivers on this. The supple yak leather combined with an awesome midsole makes walking the course quite a bit easier. The Gore-Tex membrane ensures a dry foot, even in really wet conditions. It's not the most breathable shoe in the world, but it is certainly wearable year-round. We also like the combo of Zarma Tour spikes and the permanent traction lugs, which keep you firmly planted in the ground even in rainy weather. Our only complaints are a slight lack of support and the high cost. This being said, the materials that make up the shoe are high quality and durable. We recommend the Golf Biom G3 Boa to mid handicap golfers who place importance on high quality and comfort.
