We explore the G/Fore MG4.1 golf shoes - a brand new knitted hybrid style which will provide supreme comfort both on and off the course this season.
G/FORE MG4.1 Golf Shoes | New Style 2020
Whenever G/FORE launch something new, we should all sit up and take notice. Simply put, they are one of the most fashion forward golf brands in the game - always creating and innovating but staying true to the ultimate goal of providing comfortable, high performance golf apparel & footwear.
As such, the hype and anticipation for the new G/FORE MG4.1 golf shoe has been quite extraordinary. Ever since they were first revealed at the PGA Show back in February 2019, everyone with any interest on the world of golf footwear has been following the news of this release with a keen eye - for which there are a number of contributing factors.
Firstly, just take a look and admire them. These golf shoes are incredibly athletic, modern and progressive - like nothing you've seen in golf before. You could quite easily envisage them being displayed on retail shelves alongside the most trendy sneakers from top level designer sportswear brands; while the five different colour palettes each offer a little something for everyone's tastes.

The G/FORE MG4.1 have also been championed by several of their brand ambassadors since their reveal. Kelly Kraft is one such PGA Tour star who opted to wear them during a practice round just recently, while it wouldn't be unfathomable to imagine the likes of Bubba Watson or Danny Willett putting the MG4.1 into play sometime soon - especially given the recent resurgence of the spikeless golf shoe on tour.
It's also the first ever truly "spikeless" golf shoe to arrive from G/FORE, lending itself to being worn both on and off the golf course with the utmost comfort and performance. Previous G/FORE golf shoes without conventional cleats only make use of a hardened TPU outsole which isn't suited for hard surfaces; the G/FORE MG4.1 shoes now feature a 100% rubberised outsole for soft wearing comfort on all terrains.

Finally, there is a LOT of design and craftsmanship which has gone into the making of the G/FORE MG4.1 golf shoes. It's a long process which has taken several years of hard work to find the perfect balance - fronted by the brand's founder, Mossimo Giannulli, himself.
G/FORE MG4.1 Golf Shoes | Comfort
The G/FORE MG4.1 is packed with many unique features which are designed to provide the ultimate in comfort, performance, style and versatility.
The one piece, premium mesh upper effectively "hugs" the foot for a sock-like feel with some incredible levels of breathability - simply perfect for Summer golf. The soft knitted ankle bootie also features four way added stretch for even more comfort where you need it most - while the pull tab at the rear ensures the MG4.1 is still easy enough to put on and pull off again.
One of the most intriguing design elements comes in the shape of the "auxetic lattice midsole" which has been inspired by Spanish architecture. The fundamental cushioning component named "FOREFOAM" has been engineered in such a way that further enhances its responsiveness, improving overall comfort levels and that bounce-like feel when you walk on any surface.
Comfort levels are boosted once more thanks to the pioneering sockliner insole, arguably one of the best in the game. All G/FORE golf shoes make use of this triple density footbed which is both removable and washable, while offering a unique underfoot feeling which is "the ultimate massage for your soles". The MG4.1 shoes might even provide a little massage for the soul, too - they're just that good.
G/FORE MG4.1 Golf Shoes | Performance
When it comes to the functioning performance aspects which we all demand from our golf footwear, the G/FORE MG4.1 is up there with the best spikeless golf shoes in the game.
Lateral support - a necessity with any knit golf shoe - comes in the form of seamless internal & external overlays. These also integrate with the lacing system to provide a secure, locked down fit and feel - another important factor when it comes to spikeless golf footwear.
The aforementioned rubber outsole is sure to provide sufficient grip on the golf course thanks to the newly developed "Saw Tooth" traction pattern. Being made with a durable rubber material also allows the sole to flex a little more, meaning you don't feel like you're really wearing golf shoes when you're walking about the town.
And that's perhaps the most beautiful thing about the G/FORE MG4.1 - they just don't look or feel like golf shoes. The initial design concepts were clearly inspired by athletic street wear sneakers - but the team behind G/FORE have thrown in an abundance of golf-specific engineering to give us all the best of both worlds.
Ultra lightweight with undeniable comfort and bags of style appeal; the G/FORE MG4.1 may well become your favourite ever pair of golf shoes. Heck, they might even be your favourite ever pair of shoes, period.
