What we say:

 

The G/FORE Gallivanter is a classy, stylish shoe that targets the high-end market. It performs quite well in terms of traction, and is relatively lightweight and good for walking. We like how easy it is to clean, both on the outside and inside of the shoe. Consider this shoe if you want to impress fellow country club members and to wear it off the course as well. However, it is quite hard to get over the hefty price tag, and don’t we don't think it's a great value.
