    Awesome

    Posted by John Goddard on Nov 10th 2019

    Providing a review is a first for me. But I had to chime in. I’ve only played 4 rounds (and practiced a bunch) in these shoes, but they really are comfortable with great traction and good looks. My feet and socks have stayed dry. The reason I looked into these shoes is because I recently played about 6 rounds in 3 days and had blisters on my heel and toes with my old shoes. I even changed between rounds. I knew this wasn’t right, and so I went for the True Original. No blisters as the shoes fit great!! ( I wear 14 generally and that is the size I got.). I’m now looking into the True knit for summer !

    BEST shoes for wide feet

    Posted by Dom on Oct 31st 2019

    I absolutely love these shoes. Just purchased my 6th pair of OGs. Use the Nine Iron Grey ones a bunch, so I am on my third pair of those and have several other colors. They do need to bring back the green ones! I have used these out of the box, walking 18 a day in Scotland for more than a week. They were comfy and didn't let any water in. They feel like slippers on the grass. I've even used them to get around the city and hike. I will say rocky terrain isn't the best, but they will work in a pinch. Definitely the best shoes in the business in my opinion.

    True Originals

    Posted by Bradley on Oct 29th 2019

    If I could have given a 4.5 star review I would have. These shoes have about 4 rounds so far and I love them. I’ve been fighting the urge to spend good money on shoes but knew that when the time came I would try out the True Links wear shoes. I play around 75-100 rounds a year and knew that I needed something that would hold up and be comfortable. These are winners. After the second round they started to soften up and felt great. My only complaint is the insole. I was hoping that if I paid $160 for golf shoes that they would have a proper insole but these are quite underwhelming. With a better insole (and I’ll buy a custom fit pair soon) these are a 5 star golf shoe. No question. They’re sharp looking, comfortable, and grip nicely. When the time comes to retire these I’ll be back to buy another pair. I knew that buying from a smaller company meant paying a bit more but it was worth it. Thanks for making some great shoes! Also, I have pretty wide feet and these fit better than most shoes that I’ve tried.

    What's up with the leather?

    Posted by Phil S. on Oct 15th 2019

    I love the fit and performance of these shoes, but the leather has a thin outer leather that scuffs very easily and seems to peel where the shoe creases - and this is after about 3 rounds. I haven't noticed any impact on performance, but they look pretty bad, which is disappointing for a $150 shoe.

    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.
