What we say:

 

We thought the G/FORE MG4 Plus would basically be the same shoe as the MG4.1, just more waterproof, but we were wrong! Ok, so admittedly some of the technology, such as the cushioning, is the same, but there are plenty of differences (for the better). We love how the MG4+ can be worn year-round, not really overheating on hot days, while providing plenty of waterproofing on wet days. In our opinion, the traction system has been improved since the MG4.1, and grips better during the swing while still remaining flexible and comfortable for walking off the course. While the support isn't great, it definitely does the job, especially with the added heel cup. The most important thing to remember about the MG4+ is that it was designed with versatility in mind, meaning you can go straight from the street to the course without having to change shoes, all the while looking really trendy!
