What we say:

 

The G/FORE G/DRIVE is, in our opinion, the best performance golf shoe that this brand offers. There are a number of specialized features that make this a high-end performance golf shoe, beginning with the Macneil Fast Twitch closure system. Yes, it's very similar to other BOA closure systems, but this one consists of two dials, essentially creating an even more custom fit. Throw in the external heel cap, which locks the heel area during the swing, and you have top of the line support in all the right places. The other standout feature of the G/DRIVE is its comfort. The TPU upper feels great, as does the fitbed and midsole. These combine to provide lots of rebound that saves energy when walking the course. This shoe is also quite breathable and waterproof, which means it can be comfortably worn all year. At well over $200, the G/DRIVE certainly isn't cheap, but you definitely get high-end performance and comfort.
