ECCO® GOLF Releases Special Edition S-THREE ‘Iceman’ Design with Henrik Stenson
When Henrik Stenson tees it up in Abu Dhabi this week, he will do so in ECCO’s special-edition ‘Iceman’ S-THREE shoe. Paying homage to Stenson’s nickname, ‘The Iceman’ features a cracked leather upper that mimics shards of shattered glass. The tongue of the shoe also includes a special-edition tag reading, “Henrik Stenson The Iceman.”
Look for a version of ‘The Iceman’ to be available for the rest of us this spring in black and white colorways. These will be part of the seven different colorways in ECCO’s updated S-Three collection. Designed in collaboration with Stenson himself, each of the S-THREE styles features zonal support provided by cutting-edge midsole technology.
“It’s great to join forces with ECCO GOLF to create ‘The Iceman’ shoe,” said Stenson. “The brand is renowned for its dedication to delivering quality, comfort, and style, and these shoes represent exactly that. With their cracked leather uppers and cool midsole coloring, ‘The Iceman’ designs are definitely going to turn a few heads out on the course.”
We always appreciate when a brand can use a design element to highlight a key feature without negatively impacting the aesthetic. Such is the case with the ECCO S-THREE shoes.
The midsole features three distinct color variations running from the heel to the toe. Even cooler is the icy blue and white coloring in the midsoles of ‘The Iceman.’ Each variation aligns with a different zone of the midsole. Zone 1 in the heel is engineered with a medium softness for cushioning and comfort. In the midfoot, Zone 2 features higher levels of rigidity to deliver lateral stability throughout the swing. The forefront of the midsole in Zone 3 offers the highest level of softness for comfort and flexibility while walking.
The S-THREE quickly became a GolfThreads favorite when it dropped in 2020 thanks to its incredible comfort. Without nerding out too much, the shoe gets its easy ride from ECCO’s
FLUIDFORM™ Direct Comfort Technology—a ‘state change’ process that uses specialized fluid materials to form around an anatomical last. This ensures a finely tuned balance of cushioning and rebound, while also creating a flexible and durable bond without the compromises of stitched or glued assemblies. A double layer of neoprene in the collar and heel adds padding for additional wearing comfort throughout the swing.
The S-THREE is 100% waterproof and breathable. The GORE-TEX technology prevents moisture from penetrating the shoe, while also allowing natural moisture to escape. ECCO also returned to its award-winning ECCO DYNAMIC TRACTION SYSTEM™ (E-DTS™) outsole design. More than 100 traction bars and 800 traction angles provide the grip needed in a variety of conditions.
We definitely have our eyes on ‘The Iceman’ this spring.
How do you like the look of the way the shoe lays with the pants? from a couple of pics it looks kinda awkward?
Hey Jim, I think the S-THREE looks best with shorts or joggers. It is still a bit weird not seeing Stenson wearing classic shoes.
