ECCO GOLF has unveiled the next generation in its BIOM collection with the launch of the ECCO BIOM G5, a cleated shoe which promises ‘athletic performance in a premium, progressive and sporty design’.
The new model, which takes inspiration from the BIOM G3 and the BIOM H4, is equipped with world-renowned GORE-TEX construction that offers 100% waterproofing, while still allowing the foot to breathe. Moreover, the shoe has been engineered to incorporate ZARMA-TOUR spikes, which are combined with innovative hybrid grooves to offer year-round traction and stability.
The updated BIOM NATURAL MOTION last, originally developed by ECCO by scanning more than 2,500 feet, offers additional support and superior control while enabling the foot to move naturally whilst walking the course.
Crafted from ECCO Performance Leather and a sporty mesh, the BIOM G5 comes with a choice of a laced or BOA Fit System on the side of the shoe. A low toe profile gives it a sleeker silhouette, with the women’s shoe offering a more refined and feminine aesthetic.
Additionally, for the AW22 collection, ECCO ambassador Lydia Ko has designed a custom version of the BIOM G5. Ko’s design features hibiscus flowers styled onto one side of the shoe, and silver ferns on the other, paying homage to her country of birth, South Korea, and the country in which she grew up, New Zealand, respectively.
FLUIDFORM Direct Comfort Technology ensures a finely-tuned balance of cushioning and rebound, while creating an integral, flexible and durable bond without the compromises common with stitched and/or glued assemblies.
Andrzej Bikowski, Head of Design for ECCO GOLF, said: “The BIOM G5 has been yet another fantastic achievement in design and innovation for us. Following the huge success of BIOM G3, and BIOM H4, the next iteration of our cleated BIOM series needed to be a true step-up in both comfort and technology, and this is something we truly feel we’ve achieved with the BIOM G5.”

Men’s: Steel/Black BOA, White/Black BOA, White/Regatta BOA, Black/Steel Laced, White/Blue Depths Laced. RRP: £210 laced, £220 BOA
