“I’m very excited to once again join forces with Ecco Golf to create another signature edition style,” van Rooyen said in a press release. “The previous version that we created together was super cool, and I received plenty of compliments out on tour. I didn’t think it would be possible to top those, but with this new model I think we’ve done exactly that.”

In addition to the pops of personality, the shoe boasts all the comfort and technology you’d expect from Ecco, as well as a few updates, including a sleeker, slimmer and reworked upper. The tongue has also been completely redesigned to produce a more ergonomic shape that fits more comfortably to the foot.
