The TRUE shoe appears to have even less traction and concerns me regarding how it will hold up during my swing.
You should try a pair. Buy a pair you like to walk around in, maybe the Stealths. Worst case they'll be great shoes for practicing in, putting in, etc.
Fred Couples wears shoes with less traction. I know, he could play in skates because his tempo is so smooth, but still - I've not had any problems with the TRUE shoes, and the traction has only gotten better. If you're really violent or whatnot I could foresee problems on hardpan (same with all shoes post-metal-spikes) or wet ground, but that's true of all modern shoes really.
