    Best golf shoe ever!

    Posted by Larry Barker on Nov 12th 2018

    I have owned 5 pairs of True Links golf shoes over the years. They are all great. Every time I get a new pair, it is better than the last. Most recently, I loved the Knit. It was fantastic. I decided to get a pair of the True Originals knowing we were headed for the slightly wetter and cooler time of the year. These are my favorite to date. I love the low to the ground profile and the more forgiving toe box. It ties into everything I have been reading lately about our feet and the need for minimalism and forgiveness in our footwear. Don't get me wrong, these are extremely stable! Felt comfortable and broke in from the first time I played in them! I'm a bit of a golf shoe collector, but keep coming back to True for every new iteration they roll out! Keep em' coming!

    Honest Review

    Posted by Jeffery Shea on Oct 26th 2018

    After 2 weeks of testing the True Original golf shoe (6 rounds and 5 range sessions) here are my thoughts. Looks- The shoe looks great and I received many compliments on the look and the style. Durability- While I have only had them a few weeks, the durability seems to be very good. This is a very well made show. Stability- For a spikeless golf shoe I found the stability and grip to the turf to be quite impressive. I am a 0 handicap with a high swing speed and I found the shoe to be stable enough to hold up to the speed and I was really able to "go after" the ball without slipping. Fit- The shoe fits true to size. I have pretty narrow feet and the shoe fit well in the heel and midsole. I will say the toe box is very wide, almost too wide for me, but that said my feet did not slip around in the toe box, although the toe box had extra room. Comfort- Propably the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn. They were like pillows on my feet. A great walking shoe for those purists that like a stroll. Overall- This is a great shoe and I would recommend to anyone! Overall solid shoe and very comfortable. 9.5/10. Would receive a solid 9.9 is the toe box wasn't quite so wide. Buy these shoes and you won't regret it! "look good, play good" has always been my motto. These shoes accomplish that along with being insanely comfortable as well. Great job True Linkswear.

    Best golf shoes ever

    Posted by Chris on Oct 20th 2018

    First off, a little background. I'm 64 years old and have been exclusively wearing footwear with zero heal drop for 2 years. The True Originals are very confortable, very stable, and very stylish. You really feel in touch with the ground when you swing. There aren't many companies that make a zero drop golf shoe and these are far superior to the pair I had from another manufacturer. I like them so much I now own two pairs!

    True Original

    Posted by John S. Dobbs on Oct 19th 2018

    Got caught in a downpour two days ago @ the club and these shoes are definitely waterproof. These shoes are almost like walking barefoot around the course. The wide toe box is perfect for my feet as I have steel plates in both large toes. These shoes feel like you're wearing your best old pair of socks. Highly recommended!

    Comfy

    Posted by Ping Chou on Oct 15th 2018

    These are my 4th pair of Trues. The Outsiders are too narrow for my feet and after walking 18 my feet hurt a lot. I don't have that problem with the Originals. The only thing I could criticize is that they are a little difficult to get my feet into the shoe initially. The sock liner could be a little stretchier to make getting in a little easier.
