TRUE Linkswear Revitalized in 2017 (**Two New Models!**)

Just a little tickle for y'all… I know we have a LOT of TRUE Linkswear fans here. I am one of the biggest, if not the biggest here. TRUE's original shoes, reviewed here offered quality materials in a unique looking shoe that had a lot of the features I love in shoes:

  • lightweight
  • flexible
  • zero drop
  • minimal support
  • low to the ground
  • conforming/twistable
  • great feeling
  • comfortable
  • waterproof
  • great materials and leather

Well, it's no secret that TRUE has spent a few years in the rough. Outside influences and a few missteps led to the introduction of some forgettable models, and the faith of the TRUE fans has been tested.

For the past year or so, Ryan Moore, his brothers, and other trusted TRUE reps and "fans of the walk" have been scouring the world for the best materials, the best factories, and advanced construction techniques. They've re-examined what they wanted out of a shoe, and are truly returning to shoes that you can wear on the golf course, to the office, or out for a night on the town.

Look for more details soon, but finally (and I realize how odd that sounds after only a few years off the tried and true path that made so many instant, hard-core fans) TRUE is returning to its roots. Returning to a world where you can #EnjoyTheWalk.

More coming soon… stay tuned.

Great news. I for one have fallen out of favor with them after a few really bad models, but through it all I still love (and wear) some of their original shoes. I am very hopeful of a revival.

You will be happy, I believe. And sooner than you might think.

When these first premiered, I thought it was a terrible idea.  Then a friend of mine gave me a pair of Footjoys in the style and I gave them a try.  They're now my favorite golf shoe.  

I have a pair of spike shoes that are due for replacement in the not-too-distant future.  We now have a frontrunner for my next pair of golf shoes.

I'm really excited for this.

I'd moved away from True after their quality-control issues started to surface, and I ended up finding a shoe (Puma Faas) that was ALMOST as good...but still feels like a bit of a compromise. And now they're discontinued, anyway.

If True really gets back to their roots and makes high-quality shoes again, I can't wait to jump back on board.

Wore my TRUE Tours this last weekend, and was reminded how muck I really like these "duck" foot shoes. Extreme comfort. Hope the later models stay the course. -Marv

I hope the new model shoes are better.. I was a BIG fan of the originals.  I went through 2 pair (I'm a walker) in 2 years. The first pair that I wore out I took pictures of and sent them to True so they could see what roughly 1,000 miles of walking did to them. I play 18 holes 5 days a week.

Anyway, I bought another pair and ended up with HUGE blisters on my heels. Even wearing large Band Aids didn't help.

Not knowing what to get I bought a pair of New Balance and pair of Puma's. I like both of these but, the Puma's are my favorite out of the two.  They are both ragged now so, I'll be needing a new pair soon.

I would really like to get back into the Trues.. I like them but, I don't want to toss money away if they are going to give me blisters.

Just about any shoe will give you blisters if they don't fit you properly. I've never had a pair of TRUEs give me blisters.

You're going to enjoy what you see later this week, I think.

That's true..(pun intended) But, these were the same size as the previous 2 pair. The only difference is this pair was the Lyt. The material in the heel area is a fabric of some type instead of being smooth in the heel like the leather type. I believe the fabric material may be "bunching up"  causing friction on the heel.

I walk 18 everyday so, the feet don't get any "golf cart riding" rest.

I really like the True's and I'll probably order a pair or two over the winter.

Different models fit differently. I wear an 11 in the Elements pro and a 10.5 in the originals. I wore an 11.5 in Classix, IIRC.

I LOVE the style and appearance of the "Original" model. All 3 colors look fantastic. I dont even need shoes right now but I might have to get a pair just because :dance:

I feel like I could throw a pair of jeans on and wear those out to dinner or even to work. Those will definitely be going on my Christmas list.

Just saw the True Link on FB, and thought I'd check it out here since TST has always been a fan - think I've still got 3 pairs of Trues in the closet - a couple meant for winter wear that haven't been worn - thought they'd be good for my trip to Bandon, but I haven't made that trip  ... yet.

I'd like both of those models in black, please. The black hides some of the plain look of the Original and I do like the change of texture in that shoe. The Outsider may be my preference. Was looking for something other than my trusty Eccos - will look further. Good luck all!

I like the look of the Originals and I don't generally like True's aesthetic. Will wait and see how the waterproofing holds up, which is the #1 factor for me when it comes to golf shoes.

Though honestly I'm not in the market for shoes atm. I need to stop looking at things I want to buy :whistle:
