The True Eco Knit look like they have the sole of the TL-01, not the original Knit shoe. I am wondering if I need to move up half a size.

Possibly, yeah. I'll try mine on today with socks and will let you know.

Okay so I put on some thicker socks and gave them a try.

They're a bit more snug than a 10.5 in the Originals, for example, but not nearly as snug as the TL-01. That's mostly because, I think, the TL-01 has the leather upper, while the Eco Knit has the knit upper that stretches and conforms better. My foot feels secure but not squeezed. It slid in easily (unlike in the leather insides of the TL-01, which will grab your sock a little). I plan to wear the 10.5 today.

So if the Original is a "perfect fit" and the proper length, you may go up half a size here. For me, the Originals are just the teeniest bit roomy (the way I like them). In other words, we're splitting half sizes here:

  • Roomiest - 10.5 Original, Knit
  • Medium - 10.5 Eco Knit
  • Tightest - 10.5 TL-01

And since to me the 11 TL-01 feels even smaller than the 10.5 Original, I'd say the Eco Knit is closer to the Original sizing than the TL-01 sizing. Most of this, of course, is about the width. A shoe that's got an inch of space off your big toe just isn't a good fit for you, if you have to go that large just to get the width that works for you.

From TRUE when I asked if what I wrote up above was accurate in their opinion: "Yep! Definitely more roomy than the TL-01 and very similar fit wise to the OG; just a bit more freedom due to the upper."

  • 1 year later...

When the Eco Knits went on sale last week (buy one pair, get one pair free), I decided to jump on it (one pair in gray, one in black) as well as add on a pair of the OG Premium (white). Well, they finally arrived and I am super impressed with both models.

Like many on the site, I've been a True fan since they came out. I've had a 2 pairs of the original, a pair of the Stealths, a couple of pairs of the Phoenix, the Classics, a pair of Protos and a couple of the Sensei. All of those were GREAT. Then came the down years; I had a pair of the True Motion, didn't like 'em. I received a pair of the Elements to review, and while they were decent, they had spikes and I never really wore them that much. In fact, over the last few years, if I was playing golf it was in a set of Ecco Bioms.

I've known from others on the site that over the past few years True had righted the ship with the release of the OG and, at the time, the Outsider. Both shoes looked great, but I wasn't playing as much and there was no reason to jump on them. Now I'm playing more again and since the Ecco's are getting a bit old, it was time for some new shoes.

First off, the Eco Knits just look great. They are super light and fit really well. I can see these becoming my go-to shoes, not just for golf, but for nearly anything. They also look to be super breathable, which considering the 110°+ temperatures out here will be really nice. The True OG Premium, are just that, premium. The leather on these is soft and supple and the feel is great. They are a bit heavier than I was anticipating, but still should be really nice. The OG Premiums will be especially nice for early morning rounds when there might be just a bit more moisture on the ground. I love that both models are zero-drop and extremely flexible (which my Ecco's aren't). The OGs have just a bit more room in the toe, but I don't feel like my feet are squeezed by Eco Knits either. Both models were initially a little tough to get on, but as they break in, that should become less and less of an issue.

Anyways, now that these are here, I think I can finally retire my True Sensei. I've been using them since the end of 2012 and have kept them around simply because they were still a great option (they are much more breathable than my Ecco's for summer rounds).

If anybody is on the fence about picking up a pair fo the new True shoes, I'd say, go for it.

    • Day 1: Took a few days off to refocus. Stack arrived today, but my left arm is too sore from Covid booster and flu shot to really make hard swings so I’ll wait until next week. This evening I  hit balls simply making athletic swings. Did about 20 balls with a 7-iron. 
    • Day 211.  The plan was to do a full Fit for Golf routine tonight, but I was a bit too sore for it, so it ended up as a FFG mobility routine. 
    • Day 74 (10/6/22): Tonight was a very short practice, but it was productive, relatively speaking. Just short 3-9 swings, rehearsing impact position first, and then concentrating on feeling that position during the actual swing. And while not golf specific, I have resumed some core, leg, and back strength exercises I was doing regularly about 3 years ago but stopped when the pandemic hit.
