What we say:

 

The ECCO Street Retro HM carries on the brand's reputation of cool hybrid designs that look equally good on and off the golf course. For sure the highlight of this golf shoe is its versatility, which allows you to go around all day in 1 pair of shoes, before, during and after your round. Aside from looking really cool, the Street Retro HM offers pretty good comfort and traction. As with the rest of the shoe, the traction system is great for on and off the course use. Somewhat surprisingly, it grips really well for traction that was meant to be used on all types of surfaces, not only grass. We do have a few minor issues with the Street Retro HM. The sizing seems to be a bit inconsistent, with most running one to even two sizes bigger than normal. While this golf shoe features golf specific support, we still find it lacks a bit for high clubhead speeds. We recommend the Street Retro HM for mid handicappers who focus on style and versatility above all else.
