Our Experience

Having already tested the TRUE Knit golf shoes from TRUE Linkswear, my expectations of the OG Premium shoes were high. The TRUE Knits have become my go-to shoes for testing and playing ever since they arrived. The only problem, the TRUE Knits are not waterproof. Enter the OG Premiums as the perfect option for early morning rounds or testing and play during or after rain. Heading into fall and winter, the OG Premium shoes could not be better and I’m looking forward to the versatility they provide.

The OG Premium shoes are beautiful full leather constructions but look nothing like the traditional golf oxford. They stand out in terms of comfort and fit more than any other waterproof golf shoe I have ever worn. As shoes become more reinforced with protective materials, they often become heavy. Heavy golf shoes are bad for everyone and can place unnecessary stress on you and your body during your practice and play. The team at TRUE continue to impress me with their ability to put together a complete golf shoes that delivers on all their promises of comfort, fit, feel, and off-course versatility.

Specs

The OG Premium golf shoes come in two color options, grey and brown. Each shoe is guaranteed for 2 year with 80,000 step dynamic waterproofing. The hallmark of the OG Premium is the combination of waterproof functionality with the lightweight comfort of a 12.7 oz weight. Natural width toe box allows golfers with wide feet enough room for comfort. Note: the OG Premium shoes do tend to run snug to sizing and are not offered in half sizes, we recommend sizing up if you believe yourself to be between sizes.
 

Conclusion

A singular pair of golf shoes is very unlikely to help improve your games of golf by themselves, however, having the wrong footwear will absolutely have a negative impact on your performance. Being comfortable on the course is essential for playing your best and continuing to enjoy the game of golf. TRUE Linkswear continue to expand their offering of products and the OG Premium is an outstanding option in the lightweight, waterproof space. Players that can only afford one pair of golf shoes get added versatility by going with a more comfortable but rain-resistant offering like the OG Premiums.
