True Linkswear Golf Shoes

As more and more people transition to minimal footwear, the demand for activity specific “barefoot” shoes has increased (e.g. casual, running, hiking, waterproof, etc.). As some of the established hiking and running brands are beginning to meet these demands, new shoe companies are popping up eager to provide new ways to live “barefoot.” One such company is TRUE Linkswear, which is the first company to design golf specific minimal footwear. According to their website, TRUE Linkswear is “dedicated to changing the way millions of people enjoy golf by creating products that work naturally with their bodies.” Based on their belief that traditional golf shoes “nail you to the ground” and are “severely over-engineered,” they created the TRUE line of golf shoes with “no unnecessary features, no added weight, no false claims or empty promises. Just the closest thing to a barefoot golfing experience as possible.”

The True Linkswear marketing materials feature taglines like "Any closer and you'd be barefoot" and "Feel the Course." The True Linkswear sole is built on a "TPU Barefoot Platform" and is waterproof.
The TRUE shoes are endorsed by golf pro Ryan Moore, who invested in the company and played a role in developing the shoes. The company’s first shoe (the Tour) arrived in a limited release in November 2010, with their second model (the Stealth) released earlier this year.

Overview The TRUE tour is a zero drop golf shoe with a very thin 2.5 mm sole and good ground feel even with 4 mm lugs and stability bars. The foam insert, some toe spring, and a stiff leather toe cap detract a little from a ?barefoot? experience, but… more »
