About those TRUE shoes...

Recommended Posts

Those that have them seem to like them- I'm thinking about giving them a try. Do the sizes run "true" (no pun intended), a bit small or a bit big? Have a gift card and can get a pair for a small add-on amount.

I have both the 2011 and 2012 TRUE Tours and I found they run a half size smaller.  I take an 11 boot (and shoe) but a 10.5 TRUE Tour.  Not sure about the other models.  You'll find they are bigger in the toe box than you're used to, but that of course is the point.

From my experience maybe 1/2 a size big... I normally wear 10.5 and that's what I wore in the 2011 versions of the shoes, in the newer versions I wear a 10. I probably could get away with a 10.5 but they'd be just a bit loose. If you are buying them in the store then no worries as you can try them on... if you order them online directly from TRUE they will exchange them if they don't fit properly as I am sure nearly any online retailer would.

With the True Tours - I went a half size smaller and am very pleased.  I have skinny feet - so that larger toe box made me think they would run large on my feet.  I was right, and the 8.5 fits nice compared to the regular 9 that I wear in other golf shoes (Nike, Adidas, Footjoy, Ecco).

I'm looking at ordering the Sensei, but may order those in a 9 because they look more traditional in size/shape.

Wouldn't that contradict what you are saying?  I think the True Tours run a half size larger than advertised.

You're right that was a little confusing.  I mixed comparing numbered size vs fit without really differentiating. Doesn't change the ultimate point though that you'll most likely want to buy a half size smaller than you normally wear.

Did you find the Sensei ran 'true' to size?  Or do those run larger too - like the Tours?

I found the Sensei are the same as Tours and Stealth.  You can do what I did and go to a Golf Town, try on a pair, then order direct from True Linkswear.

I wear Asics running shoes in 11.5 but the True Links in 11.  But I think it has to do more with the wider toe box with the True shoes.  I need a bit more length in the running shoe to account for the pointy toe box.

Really, that is interesting.  Because the Sensei doesn't look like it has that large toe box.

I will second this comment. I bought a pair of the PHX and because of my skinny foot those are about 1.5 smaller than the traditional shoes I get, I had to return them. TRUE was really great about it.  If I were to order a new pair of the tours (I have one at size 11) I might try 10.5 and return them if they were too small.

I hate all of this talk about 1/2 sizes.  Once you get past 12, it's usually impossible to find half sizes, and sasquatch over here (not the good golfing kind, the monkey kind)  wears 13's. :(

P.S.  Look at that snazzy new signature you got!

The Sensei toe box is not quite a wide, but it is flatter at the end than most shoes.  I use it for my shoes at the gym.  I think True could have used a better insert than they did.  But they are still very comfortable.

Yeah, that is what I was leaning toward using them for.  More for the gym until the courses dry out... I'm leaning toward the white version for Spring golf.

Finally, FINALLY, got around to ordering myself a pair of Trues!  Got me some black Protos ...

Granted, it has only been three rounds, but these things are unbelievably comfortable!  My current shoes, which aren't bad at all, are the Ecco streets.  But the Eccos still have that "golf shoe" feel to them where no matter how comfortable they are, you want to take them off when you are done playing.  After the range today, I took off the Trues and put my slip-on Ecco work shoes (which I've always considered extremely comfortable) back on my feet and it was a disappointing step down.  Not sure I can pull off the red stripe in the office, but the feeling of those shoes is making it really tempting.

Also, now I finally "get" the whole deal with the minimal heel drop that everybody's been talking about.  As soon as I put my regular shoe back on and put my foot back on the ground, I thought to myself "what is under my shoe?" and picked up my foot to see ... nothing.  LOL, I never realized until now that my regular shoes had such prominent heels.

I will be getting myself a pair of protos in white before too long as well.  These shoes are great!!!

Nice! What took you so long! I replace my original True Tour shoes with, a pair of brown and red Protos for the mornings and a pair of Sensei shoes for dry afternons. Love them both but the Sensei shoes are amazing.  It is crazy how light they are.  You almost forget you have shoes on.

There was nothing technically "wrong" with my old shoes, per se, so I didn't really have an excuse to buy new ones.  Then with that tournament a couple of weeks ago I won $175 in gift certificates to Golf galaxy, and they just so happened to have the protos.  I'd like to get a white pair also but, unfortunately, the only white protos they have are the ones with green accents.  I'd prefer to stick with the grey and red accents because they don't quite stand out as much.

I still have $75 credit at GG and just peeked to see what else they have.  Only brown PHX in my size.  They have the grey/white/red Sensei but no skis (size 13). ;)

These are the most expensive golf shoes I've bought yet, so I'd like to make them last.  What do you guys do to keep them clean?

    • Because when an athlete describes what went wrong in a post round interview, it's always 100% accurate. 1. I do play w/ schmucks (myself included).
      2. One of us chokes pretty consistently (one of the schmuckier schmucks we have), and for 10 years he does fine in our $2 nassaus and but only loses $$ in all our "big" games. Even when he's been playing well that year (index down), we play net, so he still loses, and even he admits he just gets the nerves. I'm glad he can be comforted knowing that mental games is a tiny portion of his overall performance.  Gump says "life is like a box of chocolates". I'm allergic to chocolate so this is just wrong, literally, figuratively and in every way. (That was a whole lot of sarcasm.  My mom would kill me if she saw me posting like this.  I do mean it in the most fun way possible)
    • Dustin Johnson has different physical abilities than Jordan Spieth does, none more evident than the playoff at the Northern Trust. That week, Dustin Johnson, the person with the better physical ability, won, and the reason why he won was because he was physically superior to Spieth with his drive on the playoff hole. No, top pros dont have similar physical abilities.  There is over a 40 yard difference between the shortest driving average (271) and the longest driving average (317) on the PGA tour this year. Pros dont have similar physical abilities.
    • Welcome. I know it seems like summer now, and for a bit more, but it's officially fall, lol. Unfortunately, the munis are gonna be a huge letdown compared to the courses you've mentioned , but if you need any info, just holler. 
    • Welcome! Depending on whether or not you drive and where you live in the city, there are plenty of passable courses in the boroughs. Dyker Beach and Marine Park in Brooklyn ok. Short and fun. Clearview in Queens is alright. Staten Island has a bunch of decent courses, but if you dont drive its hard to get out there. Theres always Bethpage Park in Long Island, but it can be a haul from the city too if you dont drive. 
    • Yeah, like what dzclarkcpa was saying, alot depends on the grass and the setup of the course. So many different variables come into play and it really just takes experience to learn how to play out of the rough. If you know a grass range that has some thicker grass on it, practice some there and see what it does to your ball flight and distances.  But generally, the more of the back of the ball you can see, the better you'll be able to control it. That doesn't always mean you'd able to hit your normal full swing shot, but it could mean you can play it differently with reasonable control.
