G/FORE G.112 Review

There is a lot of cool gear in the golf equipment world that doesn’t always fit neatly into Most Wanted Tests or Buyer’s Guides. You still want to know how it performs. In our We Tried It series, we put gear to the test and let you know if it works as advertised.

What We Tried:

G/FORE G.112 golf shoes—the newest golf shoe from the luxury golf shoe brand which prides itself on their disruptive designs.

Who Tried It:

Connor. Director of Soft Goods Testing and resident sneakerhead. I believe golf is better with a pair of cool shoes and comfortable joggers. I’ve never worn a pair of G/FORE golf shoes so there’s no time like the present!

The Deets

  • New for 2023
  • Retail at $225
  • Available for both men and women (points for inclusivity)
  • Polyurethane leather construction
  • Massaging cushioned insole

G/FORE’s Disruptive Design

G/FORE G.112 golf shoe review.

It’s been years since G/FORE has come out with a new silhouette. And, man, did the G.112 make quite an entrance. Between advertisements featuring the G.112 next to nude models (seriously) and captivating spikeless design, the G.112 has had my attention from the jump.

I just had to try this one.

Based on my findings, I’m fairly confident the G/FORE G.112 will be the top performer in the brand’s golf shoe lineup.

Intrigued? You should be. Here’s my full review of the G/FORE G.112 golf shoes.

Spikeless Traction That’s Full of Spikes

G/FORE G.112

Let’s start off with a paradox! While the G.112 is considered a spikeless golf shoe in the traditional sense, its traction pattern is essentially a plethora of miniature spikes. No, not golf spikes, actual spikes … pointy, pokey things that feel like they could do some damage.

Besides looking absolutely ridiculous (I’ll let you decide if that’s said in a positive or negative light), the traction holds up very, very well. In both dry and wet conditions, the G/FORE G.112 provided excellent traction.

No joke, the spikeless spikes did their job.

Comfortable(ish)

G/Fore Golf shoe design

A good golf shoe has to be comfortable. Between the plush P.U. leather upper and the EVA foam midsole, the G.112 provides a comfortable walking experience. That said, there’s one thing about the G.112 that you’re either going to love or hate: the massaging insole.

This unique, wavy insole is extremely cushioned but also extremely unnatural when walking. The thing is, you’re either going to love how it feels or it’s going to annoy you to the point where you can’t wear them anymore. I fell somewhere in between. At first, the feeling was very weird, almost unnatural. But after some time, I can see why a golfer would like such an insole.

Luckily, if you pick up a pair of the G.112 golf shoes and can’t stand the insole, you can always swap it out for your favorite orthotics.

Love ‘Em or Hate ‘Em

The theme of the G/FORE G.112? Love ‘em or hate ‘em. In every design choice and performance aspect of the shoe, you’re either going to really like them or want to stay far away from them.

A shoe this polarizing in form and function is surely disruptive. I’ll consider that a win for G/FORE’s goal to be an intersection of “modern design, youthful energy and rich tradition”.

As for me and my thoughts, I’m on the former side. I think the design is unique (and sorta cool) and I loved the traction and comfort of the G/FORE G.112.

      They look nice, but I am also not a fan of the very unnecessary design elements like the spikes on the side and back and the stencil-looking print on the side. They are bold, and they look comfortable. I’ll give them that. Oh also everybody is telling me to not get shoes with white mids because they discolor so fast.

      Agree with those who yearn for wide golf shoes, as well as the majority of us(not you Connor, who gets his shoes and apparel free) who are sick of the inflated prices that so called Luxury Mfrs. expect us to pay. Golf will soon be the sole toy of rich foreigners, business people who have expense accts. , and no reasons to ever be allowed on any course(no regard for rules, no game, etc.), the Blue coats, and Private Country Clubs! It was a great ride that Arnie brought us to, but it looks like it is OVER!

      Anybody see the price of GASOLINE this week???? It went up by a DOLLAR in 10 DAYS!!!

      Nobody will be playing golf next month. Not the Covid people anyway. They can’t afford it any more. The courses might raise prices, which means the courses will empty again.

      (Having said that, I’m making 8% returns on my past month’s investment so I’m doing ok hehe)

      So why would anybody pay this price for plastic spineless tennis loafers at this price???? NO ONE!!!

      Look it , all manufactures don’t know feet . They are making Cast for your feet . You need a real foot specialist that knows
      feet , and not put people in casts and go out and play golf. I am with you , Rubber cleats on the sides , maybe for side hill support . LOL
      or maybe these are shoe cleaners, saving clubs to not have shoe scrubbers available. Big Saving . Yeah .

      Everyone is missing the boat on Golf Shoes , It’s not about all these foam, cushy this and high arch support . That is not what
      the body needs and surely the feet don’t need to be in a cast all day and then again all rounds of golf . The feet are the biggest
      ground force factor in the golf swing. The shoe industry doesn’t know what is best for golf and most everyone is sold on the
      untruths of the industry . You need to feel the feet , let the feet sensors need to work for you not against you. Your feet needs to
      keep it’s strength and keep building on feels. Golf would change with the correct foot wear. So far nobody is in the foot business
      building shoes for golf . Let’s get busy and do this right …

      Cheers

      Seriously, it’s time for all of us to no longer support the conceit that is: “Polyurethane leather”, and call it what it is…plastic.

      Or, most accurately, a thermoplastic polymer.

      Plastic shoes for $225. Pass.

      You are right. Most every shoes has too mush cushion. Shoes are casted for the feet , and that is the last thing
      you want in a golf shoe. Everyone playing golf in a cast .

      Rather than edgy – seems gimmicky and kind of silly with he spikes up the side. But the real killer – like Squairz, True and others – NO WIDE SIZES. It’s annoying actually. So – give me New Balance – comfortable and same “spikeless” technology.

      Thanks for posting this! The lack of wide sizes is truly disappointing!

      I own 6 pairs of G-Fores but I do NOT like this model and will not be buying it. It has a cheap look to it and I am not a fan of the sloppy appearance it portrays. Color you sampled is ugly too , I know they come in different colors but the brown is super ugly.

      Spikes up the side??? To what purpose other than a style statement? Wavy massaging insoles? Nope!

      I bought a pair in that color and just wore them for the first time and loved them. Got lots of compliments also. I should say that I’m an avid G-Fore fan and own lots of their shoes and apparel.
