Pros: Extremely soft, comfortable fit with distinct, colorful styles.
Cons: Price ($35 each). No children’s sizes.
Bottom Line: They’re pricey, but you’ll be hard pressed to find a wider selection of colors and styles from another golf glove maker.
GFore was founded by fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli. If you’re a Target shopper, his name may sound familiar because in 2000 Giannulli brokered the first ever designer-exclusive distribution deal with Target Stores.
With Giannulli’s background in fashion and love for golf, he combined function and style in his GFore golf brand, which sells golf gloves, shoes, hats, socks and golf bags. The young brand has already secured major endorsers of its products, with Tom Watson, Jonas Blixt Robert Rock, Rickie Barnes and Tommy Armour III all wearing the company’s gloves.
GFore’s golf gloves are available in more than three dozen colors and styles, and cover a wide range of size needs: small to large for women, and small to XXL for men. Cadet sizes are also available.
The stock gloves are priced at $35 each and fully customizable GFore gloves costs $50 each.
GFore golf gloves are some of the softest, most buttery gloves I have ever worn. That’s thanks to their construction — they’re made from fine AA Cabretta leather — but somehow they’re still surprisingly durable.
I tried four gloves in two different sizes to get my perfect fit. I have long, slender fingers so it’s exceptionally difficult for me to find gloves that are long enough in the fingers, but tight enough to give me a snug fit. The medium is the closest I have come to finding something that fits great on my hand. It really has a natural feel, and its a glove that I don’t mind wearing for a long time.
Despite the bright colors, I haven’t had any staining issues with the gloves rubbing off on my clothes or the color-bleeding onto my hand.
Looks and Feel
The colored glove is not new to the market, but I have not seen the concept executed better than what GFore has produced.
Pictured are four women’s gloves in Blossom, Clover, Lemon and the two-toned Wisteria. GFore has a large array of colors to choose from in both men’s and women’s gloves, and you can even design an entirely custom glove on the company’s website. You have to truly appreciate that customized glove, however, as one will cost you a whopping $50.
The colors of the gloves in person are just as vibrant as how they appear in the pictures and on their website. Their closures are made with strong velcro, so once they’re on they’re not going anywhere.
The leather on the outside of the glove is one of the softest pieces of leather I have ever felt. The inside of the glove feels similar to other Cabretta leather gloves, although, I wish there was a way to take away the feel of the seems. They’re not a deal breaker, however, and seem to help the gloves keep their shape, even with extended use.
As long as you can stomach the price, GFore golf gloves are a great way to add some fun to your golf wardrobe without going overboard. Their quality construction will also please even the pickiest golfers.
