Managed to catch a bit of the 2010 Masters and Freddie's shoes caught my eyes Embarassed

Asked my good friend, Mr Google and this is what he said,

http://sports.gather.com/viewArticle.action?articleId=281474978161741

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLvT8bNSiA4

extract:
"......Want to lead the field like Fred Couples at the 2010 Masters tournament? Consider picking up a pair of the stylish new Fred Couples golf shoes he debuted Thursday at the Masters, the Ecco Golf street premiere shoes.

ECCO is a manufacturer of high-end golf shoes. Some have said the Fred Couples shoes he doneed, which are black and orange, looked like something you might see a pro skateboarder in. Couples has dealt with back problems throughout his career, and the new shoes may be just the added support and comfort he needs to excel on the golf course....."

Must we wear golf shoes to the course? Is it the regulation? Or can we wear any shoes we are comfortable in?

in other parts of the world, golf shoes not mandatory. Just look at the US PGA tour, Ryan Moore is playing on PGA tour wearing some skateboard shoes...

In this part of the world, it is a must have item. else the course will deny you entry to play.

THey are still golf shoes. Ryan more looks like skateboard shoes but they have golf studs below. One of the brand is kikor golf.

To be able to wear those shoes and play like Fred, its not going to be easy unless you have a sound swing like him. Good golf shoes with more stability will help in getting a few more meters of those shots. Try hitting at the range with track shoes and golf shoes, you will see the difference.

According to Associated Press, this is what Fred Couples said, 'I wear nothing but tennis shoes,' he said. 'I just don't wear any socks with tennis shoes, and these shoes have been good so far.'
(See today's Straits Times Sports, "Golden Day for Oldies").
So, are those tennis or golf shoes, or both?

As far as I know, Crocs sells golf crocs too with cleated soles. However, I dont think the golf courses in SG allows wearing "slippers" to the course.

However, with fred couples example, the golf course may change the rulling and woohoo. easier for me to play golf and no need to plan for so many pairs of shoes. Just my work pants and a polo tee and I am off to play after work.....wakaka.

Visited another demo day today and the Ecco Rep was there with his van.

Those worn by Freddie will be available again in US 1st week of Aug after being constantly sold out the previous 2 batches.

The newer model sitting on top will be avail 1st Oct.





There will be new colours and a new style to choose from. Price will be avail on their website.

Yup. They do grow on you after a while.

Another non-Ecco-but-Ping insider info:

The S56 irons will be launched in Sept. PING USA has decided to launch the Anser Forged irons with the S56 officially too instead of leaving it as an Asia-only option.

While they look good, I'm not wholly convinced of the lateral support, and how they will perform in bunkers (esp when you're playing off a funky lie up against the face of the bunker). But definitely looks good if you're wearing more 'casual' looking golfwear

Ryan Moore was also wearing the same ECCO golf shoes that Freddie wears. They are called Street Premieres. They are sold out in most golf stores in the US. TGW has selected available. I ordered it when it was launched and only got it about 7 weeks later.

Finally I found it at an Ecco outlet in Jersey. Bought two pairs.

Now I have a pair in black/ chilli red (sole and trims). Size 42 or US 8 to 8.5. Interested can PM me.

The ladies' version is now available. I saw it purple and orange (can't remember if it was orange) at Vivo. For us men, it's still a waiting game.

Got mine last week. Was a 5 week wait for me.

Good to wear for the range. Nice and comfy. Reminds me of my Campers.

USD$139.99 and they are just sold out at the moment. I ordered them from an online golf store and they promised to deliver the moment it was in stock.

Ecco release them in small batches. People grab them by the truckloads and re-sell them on ebay for about double the price.

U would be very lucky if you find one in the stores here. I thought I did when I was in Vegas 2 mth ago but only the size 41 and 42s were left.

Wait a couple of months and I think it will be readily available closer to you.

Or, you can try your luck in BKK/Thailand since they are made there.
