    True Original is just an overall solid shoe

    Posted by Matthew Kreider on Oct 8th 2019

    I bought these a few years ago, and I totally believe in True Linkswear as a company. I have been wearing their stuff since I was a professional out in Arizona. At any rate, I tried the True Original, which i thought was way different than a lot of their previous models I had worn in the past. I wasn't so sure about them at first, but I went for it anyways. All I can say is that I love that they are waterproof, and I love their versatitlity. I am a golf coach, and I can wear these shoes on campus, in the car, and on the course no problem. Whether I'm coaching or playing, the comfort of True Linkswear is unmatched. You will pay a little more upfront, but it will be well worth it.

    Unsurpassed Performance

    Posted by Paul N. on Oct 7th 2019

    Recently returned from a buddies golf trip. Played four rounds in cold, rain-soaked conditions. My feet stayed absolutely dry and the shoe performed extremely well. Not only that, my playing partners commented on how great the shoe looked and asked where they could get a pair. You will not be disappointed. I will note that I did need to break in the toe box just a bit, but that's probably expected for leather.

    Very Comfortable Shoes

    Posted by Stephen Ramjist on Oct 3rd 2019

    These shoes have allowed me to continue walking when playing golf. I love the sock liner, which is a change from my previous True Linkswear shoes. Prompt shipment and no fuss transaction purchasing directly from True. Only suggestion is to use USPS / Canada Post for shipment to Canada...will help customers avoid extortionate brokerage fees by UPS for no added value.

    Comfortable

    Posted by Brian on Sep 30th 2019

    Amazing fit! Large and comfy toe box! Only one round with them so far. But grip and feel were great. Wore them to course , through round, and into the night.

    True Originals are as good as any I've owned

    Posted by Dave G on Sep 26th 2019

    As long as True keeps making zero drop, wide toe box shoes, they'll have a customer in me.ive owned just about every model they've every offered, and like any other brand, they've had a few hiccups. This shoe returns to the reason I switched in the first place. For the reasons above and the ridiculous, out of the box, comfort. Now they just need the OG in all black (hint hint)

    Great but need tougher protection

    Posted by Will H on Sep 25th 2019

    Really love these shoes. Way more comfortable than any golf shoe I've ever tried. I have very wide feet and these work. I went down a half size from normal, narrow shoes. Great grip, feel, and fit. Only gripe is the weatherproofing or first layer of leather on the toes on both shoes has worn off so that there is noticeable patches of discoloration on both. I've only had them since July and played maybe 15 rounds of golf in them and worn them around town 5-10 times. Feel like they should be more durable for the price point and claims of Truelinks. Still, the best golf shoes I own.
