TRUE’s Versatile Footwear Takes You from the Fairway to Date Night or the Office with Ease

Nobody likes being an overpacker. And, as golfers finding ourselves on three or four-day trips, we’re already responsible for keeping track of our giant travel bags full of clubs and accessories and having a wardrobe that fits the climate for those days.

That’s why having a shoe that can serve multiple functions on and off the course can be really crucial when you’re traveling. We asked TRUE linkswear National Sales Manager TJ Bordeaux his top-three shoes for taking on golf trips, knowing that getting from the airport to the course and out to dinner in the same shoe feels like a unique kind of win and definitely makes packing a lot easier. We caught up with TJ at the perfect time, too. He had just returned from the 25th Anniversary celebration at Bandon Dunes Golf Resort where he was putting custom logos on the shoes of the participants.

At Bandon Dunes, as you know, the weather can change in an instant, so having a stable shoe you can trust in a variety of turf conditions is a must. Bordeaux felt right at home on Bandon’s beloved fairways in his TRUE All Day Ripstop V2s.

“The Ripstop V2 is a shoe I almost never take off,” Bordeaux says. “The traction and performance is incredible on the golf course and the style, breathability and comfort of the shoe make it realistic for me to wear them out to a nice dinner or in any business meeting I might have. This has been the ultimate go-to shoe for me that totally lives up to the All Day name.”

Similarly, Bordeaux raves about the comfort of the TRUE All Day Knit II because it provides incomparable comfort and ease of taking on and off any time of day. “If you want a travel shoe the lightweight Knit II can’t be beat. Going through airport security is a breeze because of how easily it comes on and off and the sock fit deliver comfort that you have to try to believe. It’s one of those TRUE shoes that you might actually forget you have on. The comfort is that exceptional that it really just gives your foot a break while looking dressy enough for any occasion,” he adds.

Had Bordeaux, himself a plus-handicap tournament player, been playing in the event at Bandon, knowing the conditions could turn wet and soft, he would have opted for the full waterproof Lux Hybrid or the new easy-to-clean Lux G, to keep his feet dry and to optimize playing performance.

“You never know when the weather is going to turn, so it’s a must to have a waterproof shoe in your closet like the Lux Hybrid or Lux G. People always ask about the traction in TRUE’s spikeless shoes and I tell them I actually find more points of contact so it feels like my foot is securely gripping the ground and I can trust my stance as I swing throughout the day. It solidifies the traction. In my opinion, once you’re used to this kind of spikeless shoe, it’s hard to go back to any other feeling,” Bordeaux says.

So the next time you’re tempted to pack more than two pairs of shoes for a trip, consider making it easier on yourself – and your feet – and find the all-day comfort shoe from TRUE that best suits your style and your need to go from the course to the rest of your day and night with comfort, support and the look you want.
