Like many of the hackers across the world I’m always on the hunt for a pair of golf shoes that could possibly help maximize my potential, no matter how “Hackerish” I’m playing that round.
Last season I wanted stray from the big brand path and
find a pair of shoes with a focus on pure golf…I stumbled upon True Linkswear this past January and was hooked immediately. I ordered a pair of the brand’s “Originals,” to see if their iconic feel, and unorthodox style can hold up to the brand’s mantra; “Enjoy the Walk.”
Upon arrival I was instantly blown away. The packaging has subtle logos and included a postcard, which was personalized by the team member who packaged my shoes. I was even more
impressed when I took the shoes out of the box, from the leather to the laces, you could tell True used
only the highest quality materials.
After I got done drooling over my pair I decided to wear them out to the course for a stroll. True’s Originals are known as a “Zero Drop shoe” which means there is no difference in height from toe to heel, which is unlike 99.9% of other golf shoes available right now. I’ve never worn a “Zero Drop” shoe before so as I made my way to the range I imagine I looked like I was a puppy wearing snowshoes for the first time. After my awkward learning stage they started to feel more natural and within days I was able to walk an entire round with comfort and ease…In fact at points during the round I sometimes forgot they were on my feet! At one point during my maiden round I decided to test the shoe’s water resistance, so I dumped half of my water bottle on them, and I was excited to see that there was no
difference in performance or comfort. I loved wearing the True’s so much I decided to keep them on after my round, much to my wife’s dismay! I was in shoe heaven and didn’t want it to end!
If you are looking for a shoe that will keep you comfortable, well connected with the course while playing, and able to hold up to regular daily wear, I highly recommend investing in a pair of True Originals, and enjoying the walk.
