What we say:

 

The ECCO S-Lite is the lightest golf shoe ECCO has ever produced. Although it's made of Yak leather, it features their innovative diamond pattern that really does make it a lot lighter and more breathable than their other products made of the same leather. With these features, it comes as no surprise that the S-Lite was designed with hot summer months in mind. Take note that even though it's made of leather, the uppers aren't really waterproof, perhaps fending off dew but nothing more. We're quite impressed with the outsole, which is very grippy and also flexible, which makes the S-Lite great for walking the course. This leads us to our final point, which is that this golf shoe is very comfortable, thanks largely in part to its spongy midsole, breathable upper and flexible outsole. We recommend the ECCO S-Lite to mid to low handicappers looking for a stylish summer golf shoe that performs as good as it looks.
