Take a Walk in These Shoes...





As many of you know by now, we love hunting for new, creative, cutting edge products, and companies who thrive on innovative thinking and bringing something new and improved to the golf industry.  Last year we took a look at a conceptual golf shoe from a company called KickSpike, which featured retractable cleats.  Although it has found a place in other industries, it may not have been practical for the golf community.

Recently we've come across another golf shoe company who are taking the golf world by storm.  They call themselves TRUE linkswear and they've designed a sleek, comfortable and stylish golf shoe.  I have to agree with PGA Tour player Ryan Moore when he refers to them as "the lightest, most comfortable golf shoe I've ever worn".   From the first time I put them on, I feel confident in calling them not only the most comfortable golf shoe, but probably the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Here's a little more about them...

TRUE linkswear Golf Shoes are designed to provide the golfer with a level of comfort that they have never felt before.
The technology that went into the TRUE tour Golf Shoe is as innovative as it is logical. Get closer to the ground with a really thin sole and you begin to feel the course in ways that you can only imagine.


For any golfer who has dreamed of walking fairways barefoot, this is your chance. 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.
