ecco shoe care question


Recommended Posts

i bought my first pair of ecco shoes earlier this week when they were 50% off- the biom goretex spiked shoes with boa.

 

I haven't had any ecco's before but read some posts from many years ago that the leather starts looking bad real quick.

 

Any tips on treating them before I put them in play and after rounds.

 

Most of my shoes now i just wipe with a magic eraser

Get a good waterproofing product, and treat the outside of the shoe, remembering that GoreTex is an internal membrane to keep water from getting to your foot; it does NOT keep the outside of the shoe

I bought some stuff from Ecco, but it didn't really work. I brush them off after, and that's about it. They don't look as good as I wish, but they are comfortable.

I've never found a way to keep them looking even halfway decent.  Comfy shoes though.

I've had several pairs of Ecco's and I've treated them all with NikWax, or similar products. It will create a barrier and keep dirt and grime from actually touching the leather.  I spray them down at the start of the year and it seems to last an entire season.

FYI, I normally play 120+ rounds.

my white Biom Hybrids began to take on water stains shortly after first wearing, notwithstanding liberal applications of Nikwax.

they ended up leaking badly at the welts, making them unwearable on dewy mornings.

other brands in the rotation - FJ, Adidas do not present this issue.

Get a good waterproofing product, and treat the outside of the shoe, remembering that GoreTex is an internal membrane to keep water from getting to your foot; it does NOT keep the outside of the shoe dry!  Plus, a good product like NikWax or the like will keep the leather from getting as dirty or stained.

 

I wipe my Eccos down with a leather conditioner/cleaner before I put them on before a round to get rid of the dirt from a previous round.  And I think that also helps keep the shoes from gradually looking more and more grungy.

 

One other consideration, if possible, and it applies to ALL golf shoes.  If you play a lot in wet conditions, including morning dew, consider having at least two pairs of golf shoes and rotating them.  That gives them more time to dry completely, which is important.  It might seem like an unjustifiable cost; I know Eccos aren't cheap.  But two pairs are going to last longer than using one pair to death and then getting another pair, so your long-term cost will be lower.

 

To some extent, I think there is a trade-off between leather being extremely soft and comfortable vs. being stain proof.  You can treat a piece of leather so that it NEVER takes on a stain, but you lose some of the softness and flexibility in the process.  Good leather garments in general (not just shoes) are susceptible to staining, and you have to take care of them accordingly.  There is nothing on the market, IMO, that is comparable to Eccos for the comfort of the leather; you can take 'em out of the box and walk 18 holes and you feel like you're wearing your bedroom slippers.  But that comes with a trade-off, so you have to take a bit of extra care.

Just be diligent in wiping them down after every round or practice session. That is easier said than done.

I have the Biom 2nd generation shoes and they are the most comfortable golf shoes I have ever had.  I have flat feet so finding good shoes in general is imperative for me.  After wearing them for 3 years, I noticed the front plastic guard on the front started coming off 6 months ago and now has almost completely come off.  They aren't exactly durable.  I just use a wet towel and wipe them off after every round.  Looking forward to the Biom 3 GTX I have on the way.

For the past 20 years or more whenever I get a new pair of shoes I always give them a couple coats of Mink Oil prior to playing.  Take a brush designed for shoe polish and coat the shoe making sure to get the area where the upper meets the sole.  Let sit for an hour or two, wipe off thoroughly and repeat the process once more.  Then once or twice a year I will do this again depending on how much wear the shoes got.  But clean off shoes thoroughly first.  No sense protecting the grime.  I only wear good quality leather Footjoy shoes but this should work on Ecco's too if they're leather.  I always get my Mink Oil from Johnston & Murphy shoe stores - avoid any cheap substitutes.

I would think 3 years would be considered pretty durable.

True.  It's about time to replace them anyway.  Just got my new eccos.  They are too long from toe to heel unfortunately however the width is perfect.  Going to have to return them and get another smaller pair.  I'm def going to care for them better than my current pair.

The following article was recently posted by the team at Sqairz that talks about how to and how not to clean golf shoes of all types, not just theirs:

I use the Ecco brand Repel on my shoes (and it doesn't mess up breathability of the Gore Tex membrane). Also use their shoe cream on all my shoes. Expensive but worth it.

Waterproofing (a non sticky one) also helps keep the shoes clean -dirt often doesn't stick or just brushes off.

As soon as you use anything like an oil or nick wax it messes up the goretex as it doesnt allow the membrane to do its job.. same as golf waterproofs when they get fabric detergent and fabric conditioner on them.. ( to get waterproofs back wash them a few times with no detergent and then put them in the dryer on a “cupboard dry” setting and they are as good as new, you will be surprised how much detergent stays on your washing machine).. had no issue with a few pairs of mine and using the Ecco cleaning kit, give them a good wash off with a soft brush and clean water, pop them in a pillow case in the dryer for a bit, and then use the 3 different bottles to keep em clean and waterproof..
