Winterized Knits!

TRUE_linkswear_TK3RIPSTOP_M_RS-33_Charco

In case I wasn't clear above, this is the winterized version of the Knit II, and I'm really looking forward to getting a pair of these. If you've seen any of my recent videos (just of me practicing, or ones like this tip on Instagram), you'll see that even though it's winter, I'm wearing my True Knits. (The originals - I "save" the Knit IIs with more tread for playing golf or at least teaching golf on grass, typically.)

BTW, according to TRUE, most people should fit into the same size. So if you're a 10.5 in the Knit, you'll probably fit into a 10.5 in the Ripstock. The few people who have gotten different sizes have actually gone down a size as they like the extra comfort. I plan to get the same size as my current shoes as I may wear slightly socks in the winter anyway.

Specs:

→ 100% Recycled, Durable Polyester Ripstop Upper
→ Highly Water & Wind Resistant Construction
→ Ergonomic, Minimalist Design for Enhanced Natural Comfort
→ Renewable and Temperature Regulating Wool Liner
→ Recycled EVA & Natural Gum Rubber Outsole
→ Tour Tested & Approved Outsole Cushion & Tread
→ Renewable Shoe/Shag Bag in Lieu of the Traditional Cardboard Box
→ Anti-Microbial and Breathable Insert & Liner for All-Season Comfort
→ Machine Washable

Colorways:

As you can see, traditional grey, black, white, navy, olive, and a "greige" or "stone" grey/beige.

I saw the email this morning. They look good. Did I miss how you tightened these? 

Never mind. That is just how True shows the shoe. Duh

Ha ha. That’s how I wear them too (unless I’m actually playing golf in them).

Do they run true to size?  Width? I normally wear a 10 wide shoe.  

See above. I can see what TRUE said about maybe going half a size smaller. They feel a little looser than the Knits.

If you have a pair of Knits and they're a solid fit, go same size. Otherwise, if they're a tiny bit looser, go down half a size.

The majors felt a bit tight due to the thicker insoles in 11.5. Once I put the original soles in perfect. The 1/2 size bigger I bought still feels too large. I never wear. The originals have the best fit for my foot. The knit II are my everyday shoe and fit great with my usual 11.5. My achilles had to adjust to the higher back on them. I hated the eco shoes. I hope these are solid. I liked the looks. Wasn’t originally sold on the non waterproof. My knits aren’t either. So be it.

How does the wool liner feel? Thick like the Major insoles or standard like Originals and TKii? You mentioned the shoe is wider than the TKii. 

It… honestly doesn't feel like much of anything, because you can't really tell through socks. It feels like… a shoe. A little bit more material than the Knits, but… barely.

Very comfortable. Stylish. I didn't walk through any dew or anything, but… I think the nylon fabric will be good for most damp conditions.

Mine are scheduled for delivery today. Your pics really made the shoe pop (especially the blue) The TK3’s should be a solid everyday shoe like my TK2. It is crazy that at 44 I do not own a pair of “typical” sneakers. My Knits do the same job and the TK3 will also. Awesome!

To be clear they're not the Knit III. They're similar to the Knit, but these are the Ripstop.

Shoes came. They run a 1/2 size large. Not sure I like the structure or lack of for this shoe. Will ask True to send a half size smaller to see which I prefer it at all. 

As I've said, they run about a quarter size large. I wear thicker socks in the winter, often (and no socks sometimes when running errands, etc. in the summer with the Knits).

There's more "structure" than the Knits given the wool interior.

It is funny you say that about not being TK3. I didn’t think they were but it is mentioned in True description. All good. Being a huge True fan like you @iacas I have multiple True soles. I added the soles from the Majors. That 1/4 inch difference is gone. So far they feel good with those soles.

I see that now. That's kinda dumb - they're not a knit shoe.

    • I recall after my session (last one of the day) you asking to hit a few drivers and the guy gave some lame (to me) excuse for not letting you do that.  Oh well.  And I've always found you to be completely truthful and forthcoming in fittings and in giving tips.
    • @Double Mocha Man didn’t say it but I was there helping the fitters. Not in the actual fitting of people but as the pro and “to make the sale.” I was helping a couple people. Some ladies were swinging way too hard and couldn’t make contact to give good readings on trackman. I saw @Double Mocha Manman hit the driver and sure he hit them well but definitely not 40yds better. The fitter also said several things on flight data that was clear he was milking it a bit. I didn’t know they said it was 40yds. I would’ve believed 5-10yds at most. Also we only use flight limited balls at this range so a couple data points were not accurate.  I’m always as honest as I can be. I’ll “make the sale” if I think it’s a good idea or if the person really wants it. I won’t lie about ball flight data or what a club can do. So that environment was hard for me.  It was also weird. I used their driver a couple times towards the end because I hadn’t hit it before. The moment I asked to test it on their trackman, both their monitors both died… maybe they wanted to just pack up and go but it still took them over an hour to leave. Makes me wonder what truly was going on. 
    • Day 209, May 28, 2022 Hit balls for 10 or 12 minutes waiting for a lesson to arrive. Shorter, wider, still just as far.
    • Good one.  Thanks.  But the problem is the guy kept pushing his drivers when (if he looked) he could see I was hitting my own driver just as far or farther.  When I went into the session I told him I was looking for more distance and at least the same accuracy.
    • It's entirely plausible that the fitter is unscrupulous, but it seems more likely to me that there was a misread on one of your baseline shots. The good news is, it sounds like you have a setup that works well for you. Maybe try yelling "boom!" When you hit your current driver to make up some of the yardage.
