G/FORE is a luxury lifestyle brand for golfers aiming to stand out on the course. The brand have designed some of the best golf shoes in the game for a few years now, and are always striving to bring fresh ideas to the table.

For 2024 they’ve announced an update to the already successful Gallivanter range with the G/LOCK. The Gallivanter has been a fan favorite for quite some time and with the introduction of G/LOCK we will be seeing Softspikes introduced for more stabilization. 

The G/LOCK Gallivanter is already amongst the best G/FORE golf shoes and is perfect for the traditionalist looking for increased traction and torque. As the name suggests, it offers optimal locked-in precision while nodding to golf’s illustrious heritage.

The G/LOCK combines the familiar style of the Gallivanter with the superior ground control of TourFlexPro Softspikes. The G/LOCK is designed for the player seeking serious on-course grip in all types of weather. According to Macneill Engineering, 82% of tour players wore softspikes and 94 of the last 100 championships were won by players with them in the past year.

Built to withstand the harshest of course conditions, the G/LOCK is the ideal partner in crime for any occasion. With center stingers and flexible expanding legs on the spikes, the shoe provides high-level stability for the golfer. This is certainly a golf shoe fully equipped to make a difference in your game.
