J.Lindeberg and ECCO Collaborate on BIOM C4 GORE-TEX Golf Shoe
J.Lindeberg are a Swedish apparel brand with the ambitious ‘goal to become the most successful sport fashion brand in the world’. It’s certainly a high bar to reach, but perhaps their new ECCO BIOM C4 collaboration might get them a little closer.
Golf shoes are increasingly becoming the new hype, and ECCO have decades of history behind them, which has helped establish their name on the green. Their BIOM series offers some of the most ergonomic designs while eschewing the ‘Sunday Best’ dagginess of more traditional models found from other brands. With J.Linderberg’s input, the BIOM C4 is one of the sleekest golf shoes to play nine holes in. This is achieved through a curved zipped white leather shroud, obscuring the tech upper underneath. Because ECCO also tan their own leather, they’ve included premium, waterproofed hides that are perfect for dewy grass. To back up the weather resistance further, there’s a GORE-TEX SURROUND liner to ensure 360-degree waterproofness and breathability. Beneath this is a breathable mesh upper held together by a speed lace system, sitting atop ECCO’s direct injected cushioned soles and rubber tread, so these can be worn off the lawn too. The collar is subtly marked on the mudguards with dual branding.
The J.Lindeberg x ECCO BIOM C4 is available now in limited quantities from J.Lindeberg.
