    Incredible Shoe, Amazing Service

    About 3 years ago I bought a pair of Originals and they were excellent, I have a wide foot and there is no better golf shoe both traction and fit. Well a few months ago I thought I’d try the Major, it was a really quality shoe but the toe box was not as big as the Original. I hoped it would stretch a bit but it never did so I contacted customer service, their policy is 30 days and it had been about two months but they quickly allowed me to exchange the Major for a bigger size or the Original. I went with what I knew and got the Originals in white. Have had them about a month now and I’m not sure I will ever purchase another shoe. Great look, super comfortable and quality craftsmanship. Can not recommend True Linkswear enough, especially if you have a wider foot than most. But if you want to try the Major or another style, be sure to contact customer service and they can recommend the correct size. Thank you Zack for all your help.

    Another winner

    First pair of originals and I have to say I am very happy with my OG’s. Having playing multiple rounds in soggy conditions they perform excellent and clean up very easily. I love the wide toe box and the comfortable fit. My only gripe is the insole. I prefer the knit insole so I’ve switched them out when I wear the originals. Small but minor complaint. I will say the first pair I received had a huge burnt mark on the shoe but customer service was quick and sent a new pair as soon as they could. For the money they are well worth the price. FWIW I ordered the same size that I wear in my knits and no complaints. Another winning shoe. I love the fact the branding is subtle and people always ask what kind of shoes I have on. Not a major OEM billboard type of guy.

    Excellent

    I took mine out for a long walked 18 today. They were exactly what they promised. A super comfortable, flat heel, wide toe box, water proof golf shoe. I walked roughly 6 miles and no blisters. Could’ve got right back into my car and drove home. The course was pretty wet After 3 days of heavy rain, didn’t get wet at all and never lost traction.

    Great Shoes

    These are my 2nd favorite shoes ever.....only the True Majors are better! And I give them that ranking based on the Majors being a bit more versatile for around town wear. These have the widest toe box of the Trues (which I appreciate), and as I mentioned in my Majors review, for me swapping the thinner insole in the Originals with the thicker insole in the Majors makes both shoes a perfect fit. Now that I have 3 pair of both the Originals and Majors....I'm wishing True had a Rewards program:)

    The Fit

    I got the shoes in pretty quickly and had to try them on immediately. I have high arches and wide toe box and the shoes felt great right out of the box. I do wish they had 12.5 as my left foot seems a little bit larger so the 12's are a slightly tight fit. Overall great shoe and looking forward to my next order!

    Original

    These shoes are some of the lightest and most comfortable golf shoes I've ever worn. The wide toe box is awesome as It doesnt crowd my toes like most other shoes

    Best shoes I have ever golfed in

    The True Original is the best pair of shoes I have ever golfer in. I have wide feet and these shoes fit incredibly well and are comfortable from the clubhouse to the 18th green. The minimalist feel in the sole has also helped me feel more balance and grounded in my swing. Would recommend to anyone.

    Most Comfortable Shoes That I Own

    Couldn't be more happy with these shoes. Since receiving them, I have put 8 rounds under foot. Even on the coldest and wettest days, my feet stayed warm and dry. Walking a round of with these is truly enjoyable.
