First Look: The Gallivanter golf shoe from G/FORE

As the old saying goes, if you're going to do something, you might as well do it right the first time -- as exemplified by The Gallivanter, the first golf shoe from G/FORE.

G/FORE made its name producing some of golf's most luxurious, and most colorful, gloves. As with its gloves, The Gallivanter comes to us from the design sensibilities of Mossimo Giannulli.

The Gallivanter from G/Fore.

"In an industry filled with sameness, G/FORE's DNA has always been to create newness," Giannulli says. "With The Gallivanter shoe, I believe we’ve struck a great balance of fashion and comfort. It's a relevant shoe silhouette in fashion today and one that plays equally well at your favourite pub, country club or fairway.”

Launching at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., G/FORE’s debut shoe is crafted from water-resistant suede with tonal and contrast waxed colour laces, and boasts a lightweight, durable microcellular EVA foam sole with shock absorption, and will be available in six colourways, including:

  • Clover/Azure
  • Snow/Blossom
  • Onyx/Snow
  • Midnight/Crimson
  • Sand/Lemon
  • Charcoal/Lavender

The Gallivanter ships to retailers summer 2013, and will be available via www.gfore.com. Retail pricing is set at $225 per pair.
