As a lifelong teacher, having taught golf full time for over 35 years, one of the sticking points in many of my lessons was the footwear my students were wearing. They were wearing jogging or walking shoes that were either too high in the heel or too low in the toes, which caused them to lose their balance and react adversely to that imbalance, causing them to have issues with direction and contact. Since we were on mats, I would instruct them to remove their shoes, and their golf shots immediately improved.
In 2018, at the PGA Merchandise show, I was introduced to TRUE linkswear, and their President, Jason Moore (brother of PGA Professional Ryan Moore). TRUE’s model lineup featured shoes with a zero drop design (0mm heel lift), an innovative leather uppers that holds the foot firmly in position, and a spikeless design that grabs the ground like Spiderman. It was a match made in heaven. Finally, I’d found a golf shoe that was worthy of my recommendation to all of my golf students.
The perfect description as to how the TRUE shoes feel when hitting golf shots is "barefoot with spikes, and nothing feels more natural". Ever since I started recommending these shoes to my students all over the world, we now have thousands of happy students experiencing true wisdom from the ground up.
