Lydia Ko pays homage to heritage with custome ECCO BIOM® G5
Brand ambassador combined her South Korean and Kiwi heritage in design
Ko has designed her ECCO BIOM® G5 with cherry blossoms styled onto one side of the shoe, and black ferns on the other, paying homage to her country of birth, South Korea, and the country in which she grew up, New Zealand, respectively.
In addition, Ko’s signature is emblazoned on the inside of the shoe, along with her logo on the tongue. The shoe is a fitting tribute to one of the world’s greatest female golfers, who has close to 30 tour victories to her name, including two major championships.
“I’m extremely excited to join forces with ECCO GOLF to create my own unique take on the brand-new BIOM® G5 shoes,” commented Ko. “ECCO GOLF is renowned for raising the bar for golf shoe design, and it’s fantastic that I have had the chance to stamp my personality on this new style.
“The features we have added to the BIOM® G5 are very close to my heart, and it’s going to be really cool walking the golf course week-in-week-out with the black ferns and cherry blossoms on my feet. Hopefully, I’ll be wearing them to lift plenty more trophies in the future!”
Advanced, athletic performance is mixed with a premium, progressive and sporty design in the new ECCO BIOM® G5. The next generation of the BIOM® phenomenon is engineered with ZARMA-TOUR® spikes, which are combined with innovative hybrid grooves for superb traction and stability.
BIOM® NATURAL MOTION technology, with an updated last, allows the foot to move more naturally while supplying anatomical, low-to-the-ground support and stability and a snug fit.
Whatever the weather, GORE-TEX technology offers 100 per cent waterproof protection, whilst the BOA® lacing system is designed to provide the wearer with a premium, simple lacing option that offers a snug, easily adjustable fit.
ECCO 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.
Fashioned from embossed ECCO Performance Leather and a sporty mesh, the shoe has a contemporary, athletic design, including an eye-catching midsole and colour blocks on the side. A low toe profile gives it a sleeker silhouette, with the women’s shoe offering a more refined and feminine aesthetic.
