Now G/FORE's set to bring its signature style to players' feet.
Launching at the 2013 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., G/FORE's debut shoe has been dubbed The Gallivanter by designer-founder - and avid golfer - Mossimo Giannulli. Available in six colourways, The Gallivanter 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.
Sure to make a stylish statement on any course, The Gallivanter shoe comes in Clover/Azure, Snow/Blossom, Onyx/Snow, Midnight/Crimson, Sand/Lemon and Charcoal/Lavender colurways. They're the ideal complement to G/FORE's collection of more than 20 colourful, finely tailored golf gloves.

"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."
