When it comes to golf, it’s good to be a shoe snob. Whether you’re going to pay $50.00 or $200.00, you want a shoe that is comfortable and durable. It doesn’t hurt if those shoes are both stylish and waterproof. On the long list of wants, great traction is an added bonus. A new shoe company, TRUE linkswear, has entered a crowded market with claims of having everything a golfer wants in footwear. According to the company, “TRUE linkswear shoes are the closest that you can get to playing in your bare feet, while also getting the benefit of traction and waterproofing.” After playing in their shoes for just more than two months, I can attest that statement is accurate. By now you have seen nearly every shoe company bring to the market a golf shoe that claims to be a street shoe. Ideally this street shoe should be no different from other golf shoes. With or without spikes they should offer above average performance on the course with a stylish look and be casual enough to wear into a store or restaurant after a round of golf. Believe it or not, TRUE linkswear has perfected the shoe that can be high performance on the golf course with the comfort you would expect of a causal walking shoe. Initially you might not be interested in a spikeless shoe. What if this spikeless shoe offered the same amount of support and traction as a golf shoe with spikes, along with the comfort of a pair of sneakers? Well, TRUE linkswear did it and it’s worth making a trip to your local golf superstore to try a pair.
