That's one of the best looking shoes I've seen them produce. Not waterproof, though. Probably OK if you can wear them like water shoes with no socks.

Am I silly in thinking, huh, corduroy shoes. 😀They look great, just the first thing that popped into my head.

These look awesome. I’m glad they don’t have the high tongue of the other recent True’s (Original and Outsider).

I may pick these up to replace my mesh Puma’s as my “summer/range” shoe once they start to wear, although I don’t like the 4mm - 6mm of extra heel drop.

4mm is not a lot. That's still pretty minimal.

How wide are these compared to the older models? They look more like any other shoe than I've seen before. I'm still using a pair of the earlier versions, a Masters edition I believe, and really like that they got a wide sole, but it's maybe a bit too wide. I mostly wear Nike in shoes since they fit my feet well and got a wider sole than most others. Adidas is pretty narrow in comparison.

 

Are the shoes anything special compared to most other shoes on the market? I don't need new shoes at the moment, but my current TRUEs got an annoying detail in that the top of the shoe, below the laces, fold and make an edge that sticks down into the top of my feet when I walk.

Probably slightly wider than most shoes.

I got an email:

Okay, now onto the good news: Today we received word that our shoes have cleared US Customs. The next step is getting them from the Port to our warehouse, which we anticipate finishing by tomorrow. This means the first orders of TRUE knit should be leaving our warehouse as soon as this Friday.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
