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.

You may have noticed we haven’t been putting any content up recently. I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to the all of the brands who have provided us products for us to review, but here’s why we’ve been away; my family and I have been going through a very up and down year which has included multiple housing obstacles and a miscarriage and then a successful pregnancy which at this point we will be expecting our second daughter into this world within the next couple of weeks. It has not been an easy decision to put this project of mine on hold but I needed to do what was in the best interest of my family and for that I hope you all truly understand.
Now that things are back to a very positive state in my life I am going to give this page and you what I told you I was going to do. Give you honest reviews for the everyday “Hacker” to promote brand awareness and be the best resource I can be for you, the hacker’s nation!
You can expect to start seeing the reviews coming through as well as a couple of other different segments which are going to be designed for you to maximize your game this season!
Thank you all for your support on this ride so far and I can assure you this is only the beginning of something either great or mediocre (I'll let you be the judge).
