    True Original

    Posted by John on Sep 11th 2018

    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

    Great shoes

    Posted by JJS on Sep 6th 2018

    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.

    True Original

    Posted by James Cornwell on Aug 31st 2018

    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.

    Original

    Posted by T. Harris on Aug 22nd 2018

    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!

    The most practical 'on course, off course' shoe in the market. Once you change shoes you will miss the comfort.

    Stick with FootJoys

    Posted by Rob Gerard on Aug 15th 2018

    In my 25 years of playing golf, I've owned probably 15 pairs of golf shoes. The majority being FootJoys with the odd pair of Nike's thrown in. When I heard about True Original's, I thought it would be a good idea to give them a try. I was so wrong! I have never been more disappointed or uncomfortable in a golf shoe, or just a shoe in general! In roughly 15 rounds of golf (the majority or them walking) my feet have never been in so much pain! The shoes offer essentially no support, they are hard to get on and off, and they hurt with every step once you get past the first few holes! I had a pair of FootJoy Classics that lasted me 8 years and were more comfortable towards the end of their life, when they were literally falling apart, than these shoes have ever been! Maybe my experience is an anomaly, but if you've been wearing a different brand of golf shoes for a while and you think those are comfortable, you should just stick with what you know and avoid the mistake that I made of trying something new that looked cool online.

    The Best

    Posted by AL on Aug 13th 2018

    This is the most comfortable golf shoe I have ever worn, I have a slightly wider foot so the wide toe box feels amazing. Was worried about shoe feeling loose because of that but the inner sock in the heel hugs your foot so well that my concerns were gone immediately. Enjoyed playing in these the first time so much that I've already bought a 2nd pair.
