Our Experience

The Gallivanter is the first and only traditional-style  golf shoe  I can see myself wearing long-term. The Gallivanter is lighter in weight than any other golf shoe I have tried within that style and is more comfortable when walking 18 than I imagined. 

I typically opt for sneaker style golf shoes like the G/Fore MG4Plus but the Gallivanter open the door for an additional style without having to sacrifice my comfort or performance. For golfers willing to pay the price to have the very best, the Gallivanters check every box.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can the Cleats on the G/Fore Gallivanter Golf Shoes Be Easily Replaced?

Yes, the cleats on the G/Fore Gallivanter golf shoes can be easily replaced. It’s crucial for long term durability. Keeping an eye on the cleats and replacing them when needed ensures the shoes maintain their grip and performance.

What Is the Recommended Method for Cleaning the Cleats After Each Round?

After every round, I recommend using a soft brush and warm, soapy water to clean the cleats on the G/Fore Gallivanter Golf Shoes. This will help maintain the grip and prevent any debris from affecting their performance.

How Does the Cleat Design Affect the Overall Stability and Traction of the Shoes?

The cleat design significantly impacts stability and traction control. The wider tip and narrow sole cause debris buildup, affecting grip. Despite this, the shoes are comfortable and stylish. However, the cleaning process after each round is time-consuming.

Are There Any Specific Features in the Cleat Design That Contribute to the Comfort of the Shoes?

The cleat design of the G/Fore Gallivanter Golf Shoes contributes to both comfort and performance. The integral hard plastic spikes provide incredible stability, and the insole insert keeps feet energized. However, durability is impacted by the cleats’ cleaning requirement.

Can the Cleat Design of the G/Fore Gallivanter Golf Shoes Be Modified or Customized for Different Playing Conditions?

I can customize the cleat design of my G/Fore Gallivanter golf shoes. There are cleat replacement options available, allowing for modification to suit different playing conditions. It’s a great feature for enhancing grip and performance on the course.u003cbru003e


In conclusion, the Gallivanter is a standout golf shoe with its ability to combine a classic look and superior comfort. G/Fore managed to create a great looking, full leather golf shoe without making it heavy. Most often, companies can provide traditional golf shoes with bulk or modern, athletic golf shoes that feel great. 

G/Fore combines these two things and allows golfers to get the best of both without sacrificing anything. Golfers that have never tried a G/Fore shoe should consider it next time they are looking to get something new for the course, golfers that have tried them already – they know.
