A few weeks ago we wrote a review on what is still the most comfortable golf shoe I have ever worn, the TRUE Lyt by True Linkswear, you can see that review HERE. This week we bring you a review on True Linkswear Oxford style shoe, a shoe you can truly wear from the office to the course with out sacrificing comfort at either location.
About True Linkswear
True Linkswear was founded on a simple idea, comfort; and you can tell this is their focus in every shoe they produce. Founded in late 2009, their goal was to build a minimalistic golf shoe that mimicked the natural motions of the foot, increasing comfort on and off the course. They soon started teaming with PGA tour star and 3 time PGA winner Ryan Moore, to put their products to the highest test, the PGA tour. With Ryan’s feedback and their passion to build the most comfortable shoe on the market, True Linkswear has carved out a name for themselves, right along side the big dogs in the golf shoe industry. True Linkswear has a simple goal, design a golf shoe that will improve your game on the course, yet still be comfortable to wear off the course. Each of their models, showcase this in a different way and we will be doing another review of their Oxford line coming soon. True Linkswear examined how the foot moves during an athletic golf swing and produces light weight, comfortable shoes that help to maintain that athletic movement. All of True Linkswear’s shoes are spikeless, so you can go from a day at the park to the course with out having to change, all while your feet feel like they are walking on a cloud.
About the Oxford
I work for a very casual, yet white collar company, in which we are expected to dress nicely but do not need to wear a suit and tie to work everyday. Being the IT guy, and not dealing with clients on a regular basis, I am allowed to dress slightly more casual than others, and my basic work wardrobe is the exact same thing you would find me wearing (dress slacks, a polo and normally a pull over jacket) to the golf course on a saturday morning. Up until I tried the Oxford from True Linkswear, the only thing I ever had to change from work to the course was my shoes; once I tried the Oxford from True now I leave work jump in my car and when I get to the course I am ready to go, no changing and no wasted time, all while looking stylish and being comfortable. The stylish upper of the shoe is made of Suede and when tightened with the cord style shoe string, it form fits to your foot giving you exceptional comfort and stability. The flex rubber sole, almost makes you feel like you are standing barefoot on the course, and gives you optimal stability, the sole True uses is hands down better than any other companies sole on the market that I have tried. True made the Oxford water and stain proof with a coating that you can neither see or feel, however with constant use you can get grime and dirt on the shoe but it cleans off very easily. The offer multiple color designs to go with any color scheme you might wear to work, the bar or the golf course; all of the Oxford shoes stand out by the bold colors True uses in their soles, so while the shoe looks great at work, it doesn’t look like your average dress shoe. I really like what True is doing with their line of shoes and can’t wait to try a few more pair in the near future.
I have had both the Gray and Chocolate pairs for about a month now, and haven’t put my regular dress shoes on for work since receiving them, whether it is on the course, at work or around town I get compliment after compliment on these shoes and no one seems to know they are a golf shoe. They are stylish, comfortable, stable and light weight pretty much everything I look for in a golf shoe.
Being as we just did a full write up on True this is a shorter review, but wanted to make sure everyone saw how great these shoes were. The True Lyt’s are still the best golf shoe I have ever put on, but the Oxfords are a close second, and with the ability to go from the office to the course they might be the best golf shoe on the market.
