    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.

    Purchased online, after reading comments ordered a size larger, Im normally an 11 so ordered size 12, still really tight but shipping costs will cost more than the shoes. A little dissapointed as will have to give them as a present

    Love these shoes. They fit true to size (compared to Outsider which probaly requires 1/2 size increase). These shoes stay very dry, maybe best shoe I've ever had as far as staying dry. The sock liner keeps a snug fit around the ankle, which I love. It does make putting the shoe on a little more difficult but well worth it in my opinion (I just use a shoe horn sometimes). This is my second pair. My first pair probaly has 60 days on them and they are still in fantastic condition, no craks, no seam separations, treads are still solid and as dry as they were when brand new. A really well-built, bullet proof shoe.

    This was my first pair of True Linkswear shoes. I bought them due to the beginnings of a small toe bunion and wanted a shoe with a wide toe box. Success. I don't need to cushion the area any longer. What I am truly amazed at is the comfort and their ability to shed water. Our course is darn wet in the mornings when I play and my Originals keep my feet nice and dry. I liked them so much I decided to buy a second pair and chose the Men's Knit. I am really impressed with the shoes, the quick delivery and communication from the company. Well done.

    I’ve been wearing these for a few months now. Walk 3-4 rounds a week...here’s my take...quality - second to none. For those who gave up on earlier Trues ( me included ), these are extremely well made . The attention to detail is impeccable with waterproofing the best I’ve had! Sizing - I’ve always worn 9 or 9.5. ( 9.5 in earlier models). Originally ordered 9.5 but they seemed to “short”. Exchanged for 10 and these are perfect. Marie in customer care was a pleasure to work with and exchange was handled flawlessly. Looks- I’m a bit of a traditionalist and could never wear 1st generation Trues but these are so cool...I’m wearing theme on and off the course. Value - Worth every penny!
