If you like a wide toe box go Original. If you like it narrower (still a bit wider than most golf shoes) go Major.

I do like the wide toe box, and also the 0mm drop.

The “OG” version of the Original is actually kinda cool.

I bought the Originals in black. Looking forward to trying them. 

My Eccos are size 44, this was the size they recommended for someone who normally wears an 11.

My beloved Nike TW 13s are size 11 but I noticed it shows 45 in Euro size. So with that in mind, I chose to order the True Originals in size 45.

It has been a while since I wore True’s. Can you help me out. My Footjoy freestyle 2.0 are about done. The waterproofing is starting to let in water on the course. I wear a 10.5 in the Footjoys. I want to say I wore 11.5 in the True Sensei(still most comfortable shoe ever) I am looking at the Originals or the Major. Loved the wide toe box in the past. That being said which one and what size? I walk 90% of my rounds. Totally odd question but these are meant to wear socks with correct?

I have been reading reviews of both shoes. Sadly the Major does not seem to be in stock in many sizes( the grey one)I am leaning more towards the Originals anyway. I found my green pair of Senseis and tried them on. The 11.5 without a sock on seems about right. @iacas you seem to be a real aficionado on the Trues. Any feedback?

Waterproof is a must as it has rained on Long Island 19 out of 23 days. Coming off 2 plus years of spiked shoes are the Trues a good fit for me? 

Sorry for the repost but Monday is the day to order new shoes for the weekend. I am laboring a bit in my choice or size and if I should buy them. I have finally come to grips with the $150-$199 price point. 

I guess i am asking you all to help put me over the top in my choice. 

Thanks. Again sorry for the repost.

I actually ended up buying the Originals. Thank you @iacas for the help deciding on the shoe and size. I went with an 11.5 as per my conversation with customer service. Nice guy who answered. Hopefully they will arrive by Friday for weekend golf.

My Originals were delivered. My question is and odd one. How do I know they fit right? I do not have wide feet at all. I has to pull the laces rather tight. Because of the large toe area I am questioning if I ordered the right size. I wear 10.5 in foot joy 11.5 in Puma and 12 in Nike. Sneakers are 12. Due to the minimal support style of this shoe has me wondering. Any thoughts on this?

Maybe a half an inch. Hard to tell the top of the shoe is hard 

They probably fit then, or might be a bit over-sized.

It's a tough question to answer on the Internet, and also for an adult… Walk around your house with them and see if they rub around. My feet aren't particularly wide either, but they appreciate the room (especially in the toe box).

I knew it was an odd question to ask. No rubbing which is good. I guess my last question is, will they feel looser than or should i say should they feel looser than say a Footjoy?

Yeah, they're designed to let your feet work the way they evolved to work.

First round done with the Originals.  Very comfortable and has surprisingly good traction. Kind of cool going from house to car to tee box without changing shoes. Time will tell with durability. Already have a bit of a shred on the top of the shoe from using my cart break. Hopefully it doesn’t get worse. Overall good fit and balance when swinging.

Loving the Originals, plenty of room for the toes to move freely and absolutely zero heel slip. Also couldn't be happier with the comfort. My Eccos are gonna collect dust. These are the best golf shoes I have worn.

Got my Majors. I really like the color scheme on the grey and I like the look better than the Originals. They're really comfortable, like an old pair of moccasins.

The only issue I have walking around the house is my right foot is slightly wider than my left. The left shoe is a perfect fit but the right is slightly snug. I didn't have this problem with the Originals due to the wider toe box. I'm hoping it will break in and soften after a while. Either that or I'm going to send them back for the Originals.

I really like the Majors, though. Decisions, decisions.

    • Does it occur to you that your friend is not the arbiter of what is or isn't appropriate?  He is one man with an opinion. And you seem to think that that trumps anyone else's. You may as well say that I as an Australian, represent everyone in my country and have the final say over anything to do with my country.  Funny how this is similar to you you thinking that Florida is doing great on Covid - but then you'd know, so we'll defer to you, in spite of the numbers and facts. You are passive aggressive and a troll. Actually, I don't think you are a troll. I fear you believe your own simplistic arguments. For your information, the Chief Wahoo image is part of an exhibit at the Jim Crow Museum of Racist Memorabilia.  
    • You really don’t get it. Not do you realize how dumb statements like that are, apparently, because nobody would make such statements intentionally if they did.
    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
