What we say:

 

The G/FORE MG4.1 was very difficult to rate. On one hand, we love it. It's specifically for summer, and doesn't claim otherwise. This means it's extremely breathable, lightweight and comfortable. It is by far the most comfortable G/FORE golf shoe out there. Not only is it breathable and lightweight, but its outsole is flexible and feels great for walking. However, because the outsole is multi-purpose, it doesn't really grip as well as other more grip-specific traction. As with most extremely breathable golf shoes, the MG4.1 isn't waterproof. The rubber around the bottom of the upper is enough to fend of a some morning dew, but nothing more. The MG4.1 also doesn't offer much support during the swing. However, this lack of support is perhaps what also makes even that much more comfortable with its stretchy, mesh upper. If you're looking for a unique-looking, super comfortable versatile golf shoe that will keep you feet nice and cool, perhaps look no further than the G/FORE MG4.1. One last thing to keep in mind is that it runs about a 1/2 size small.
