About those TRUE shoes...

34 posts in this topic

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.

They take returns/exchanges without an issue, too.

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?

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer on the ground deforms the ground and it rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared. John
    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
