Look at the Ecco Biom Zero

For some reason, the 2014 True lineup did not interest me. Hopefully, 2015 will change that...

I may try the Barefoot B.E.R.B.S or the Vivo Barefoot. Neither are great looking but then again neither are most of the new True's.

I am on my second pair of True shoes.  I had a pair of the Phx and fell in love with them...when I wore them out, I bought the Proto.  Couldn't be happier.  I tried on a few of the minimalist offerings from other companies, and I think they may have matched the "zero-drop" sole, but none had the same room in the toebox.

 

I don't think I'll ever own a different brand of golf shoes.

That's a great looking shoe.  I will definitely check those out.  Ouch on the price tag though.

This is my plan, I won't need new shoes this year but I will definitely need to pick something up for next season.

 

Complicated by the fact that Golf Town (all of my local ones anyway) have stopped carrying TRUE.  I won't buy without trying on first so may have to switch brands anyway.

My TRUE gents were mistaken for Footjoy Icon's today B-)

Does anyone have the vegas and the sensei?  I am thinking of pulling the trigger on some vegas shoes now that they are only 100.00 and want to make sure I get the right size.  I am really a fan on the sensei as they are super comfortable but in any kind of wet conditions, they do not hold up well and my feet are getting soaked.

 

It looks like the vegas are going to be more waterproof than the sensei so I can just wear the sensei as my normal shoe or something to take to the range and use the new shoe as normal golf wear

Have a pair of Sensei on the way. I see to be in the minority that I like the more narrow toe box.

Here's why I often practice barefoot, and it has nothing to do with natural vs. unnatural, it's about helping my swing

 

 

If it's good enough for Snead, it's good enough for me.  It helps my tempo a lot.   

 

Some people ask me about it, and for the first time someone asked me if I was worried about chemicals.  I thought he was joking at first.  Then I told him how as kids we used to clean the ball on the green, so never worried much about standing on grass.  Some people worry too much.

I have wide feet and my favorite casual shoes are lightweight running shoes (currently Brooks Ghost 11.5 2E) even though I don't jog or run. Walking has less stress on joints and back. In 2005 I purchased a pair of Men's Bite AC 2 golf shoes in a search for a light weight running style mesh golf shoe with spikes. Since the that time these golf shoes have been my favorite golf shoes and the ones I wear in summer when I play 80% of my golf.  When the white mesh was dirty I put them in the washing machine then let them air dry in the sun.  I guess these Bites have about 200 rounds of golf on them. New spikes at the beginning of the season and last year had to replace the shoe strings.  However, now the adhesive between the sole and uppers in coming unglued.  I going to miss these shoes. The most comfortable golf shoes I have ever owned.  

 

The Bites were mediums with......" More foot support, yet still extremely light and breathable. Biotrac outsole with Bite's exclusive FootFrame. Sectional outsole provides biomechanically sound forefoot flex. Wide toe box encourages foot health and natural alignment. FootFrame piece supports the arch and provides torsional rigidity. Extra multi-directional traction teeth grip in all conditions, strategically positioned for the golf swing. Fast Twist Bitespikes for green-friendly traction and quick replacement. Beveled heel for shock absorption and natural foot motion." according to Bite and after 9 years of use I agree.  In 2007 Crocs bought Bite Footwear and this shoe disappeared. The new Crocs golf shoes do not seem to be anything like the Bite's. 

 

Can anyone speak to the medium True's or Ecco's ability to have a wide enough toe box to handle wide feet and true to size length (please indicate your running shoe size and width.  Would also consider other shoe recommendations as well.  Important features;  ability of shoe to breath, in hot humid summers (primary reason for mesh uppers, weight, comfort and durability.  Your experience with spikeless durability such as rounds of wear before spikeless no longer grip well especially in dew covered grass or on spiked shoes can you feel the spikes through the stock insoles.  Are the insoles removeable?   Have you ever washed the shoe in the washing machine?

 

Thanks,

I now own a pair of True's (Sensei).  I haven't worn them golfing yet but so far I like them a lot just walking around.   I hit balls with them at the range when it was wet and didn't notice them slipping at all which is what I was worried about going to a spike less shoe.  So after reading this thread Im guessing they come out with new models fairly often? Im asking because I wouldn't mind getting a pair or True's that are waterproof.

At least once a year, yeah.

I don't think I'll ever own a different brand of golf shoes.

Just picked up my first pair of True's. Woot had a special on True Tours for $49 - figured I couldn't go wrong based on the hype I'd heard from everyone. I've never purchased shoes without trying them on so this was a total gamble (never found anyone in my area who carried them for me to try on).

They arrived yesterday and I put them on right away expecting to be disappointed by everyone's expectation setting "most comfortable shoe ever" promotions.

I was wrong.

They are so comfortable that I didn't want to take them off - in fact, I didn't take them off - wore them around the house the rest of the day just because. I had read on a thread here where someone compared the feeling of True's to "walking on a cloud of titties" - I now know how accurate a description that is. While, in full disclosure, I've never actually walked on titties, if I ever did, this is exactly what I expect it would feel like. The toebox is wide which is a bit visually distracting but I'll get used to it because these things are damn comfortable.

Haven't taken them to the course yet (that's later today hopefully) so can't speak for traction, etc. but I'm optimistic. I went all spikeless about a year ago and have had some problems with slippage in certain FootJoy's. My Ecco Biom's have been great - hoping the True's deliver on- course.
