    True Original

    Posted by Paul S. on Jun 24th 2019

    Played 3 rounds with the true originals and very impressed. Super comfortable, totally waterproof, and very stable-yet connected feel. Some of the best shoes I've ever used. One big negative however, the front/top leather portion scuffs EXTREMELY easily and also wrinkles quite a bit. I've only had 3 rounds in with these and they already look very well used in this area.

    True Originals- second pair

    Posted by Mike Shive on Jun 24th 2019

    These shoes are as advertised. Toe area is cut to fit the average foot. Comfort was amazing from the first step. Took them on a weekend trip after one round and loved them. Cart path only and soaked fairways everywhere all weekend......feet stayed dry as can be!

    72 holes in one day, (basically) out of the box.

    Posted by Teddy Bowman on Jun 19th 2019

    Was on a trip to Indy, forgot my shoes so I borrowed a buddies Trues for 18. So impressed I sent my father a pair for his birthday (lot's of foot issues). He loves them. A few weeks later I was preparing for this Sand Valley Solstice golf outing by walking in my traditional wingtips and realized I would not be able to play more than 18 walking in my current setup. Went back to True and purchased these Originals for a whole day of walking golf. Played two rounds with them before the trip, no issues. Then flew to WI.... I walked/played 72 holes in these shoes that were basically brand new. Changed socks twice, no blisters, no hot spots, nothing. A little toe soreness from the 25 miles we walked and that was it. I can confidentily say there is no other golf shoe that could've possibly performed that well under those conditions and/or circumstances. Kudos True ;)

    Zero-Drop!

    Posted by pete thompson on Jun 18th 2019

    Wow. I love these shoes. I have been looking for a wide toe box, zero drop golf shoe for a while now and I just happened to stumble on the true links site. I have only played 2 rounds so far in this shoe, but I already love them. The only, kind of, downside is they do happen to look a little large from the top down. This is a side effect of the wide toe box and it isn't a big deal...just something I have noticed. I would definitely buy another pair, or two.

    My toes are happy!

    Posted by Mat on Jun 17th 2019

    Wore these for the first round yesterday, good rainy day round. My toes are usually crammed in the toe box and a uncomfortable after 18 holes, i cant tell you how nice it is to have shoes that fit properly. Walked through the weeds hunting for a few days and stayed completely dry. Thanks guys!

    Nice well built shoe, very comfortable and great fit for my feet. The front upper part of one of the shoe had a material blemish. Maybe visit your QC

    True Original

    Posted by Brett on Jun 11th 2019

    First pair of True Originals, safe to say it won’t be the last. So comfortable. I wear them without socks, not sure if they are designed that way but, hey whatever works. No issues with grip. And can we talk about style? Got em in White and they look brand new after 5 rounds. Can’t wait to get em in black. True Links, job well done.
