As my trip to Sand Valley approached, I began to start thinking about the finer details. I was finished stalking the courses, so I needed other things to obsess over.
What is the long term weather forecast? What golf shirts will I wear? Do I have enough Pro-V1x’s allotted?
I also began to think about a very important consideration for any golf trip, especially a trip to Sand Valley, which is walking only resort.
Do I have the right shoes for this?
I own a pair of FootJoy DryJoys Tour shoes. Don’t get me wrong, they are a great golf shoe. However, they are on the heavy side, and I wasn’t excited about walking 40+ miles over two days in them. So, I began to set my sights on a comfortable, designed for walking golf shoe that could handle all of the steps ahead of me.
Enter TRUE linkswear (“TRUE”), a company known for producing a superior, comfortable walking golf shoe. What stood out the most to me about TRUE is that they really stand behind their product. In fact, TRUE guarantees comfort. If you aren’t satisfied with your TRUE shoes, then you have the option of returning them within 30 days of your purchase.
I really liked the idea of buying walking golf shoes from a company who “gives a $#%! about my feet”, and was excited to #enjoythewalk ahead.
The timing of my search was perfect, as TRUE was preparing to release their TRUE Knit line of shoes. Marketed as an extremely lightweight and breathable shoe, they sounded perfect for all of the miles ahead of me in the July Midwestern heat.
Name: TRUE linkswear TRUE Knit
Price: $129
Website: TRUELinkswear.com
Other Details:
As soon as I opened the box, I thought to myself, wow, these are really, really lightweight. I put them on and they fit like a sock. In fact, the back of the shoe (around the ankles) has elastic that really adds to this “sock” feeling.

Despite fitting like a sock, the shoes are very well cushioned, and the inserts are thick and very comfortable. I was excited to put them to the test.
I wore my new TRUE Knits immediately during my next round to ensure that they were the right walking shoe for me. I was especially curious how they felt in terms of support during the swing, because I had always been accustomed to wearing heavy, spiked golf shoes.
I walked 18 holes in the TRUE Knits on opening day at the Rees Jones designed Corica South course in Alameda, CA.
Here’s the thing. You’ll often hear that you should feel like your feet are rooted beneath the ground during your golf swing. This helps with your balance and power. I personally like to feel this at setup during my pre-shot routine. That said, I was very anxious to see how this would feel in an extremely lightweight golf shoe.
Warming up on the range, I didn’t feel like the overall support provided by the shoe was where I needed it to be. Specifically, posting up on my left foot during my follow through felt odd. It felt almost as if I was playing golf in my bare feet. To be completely honest, I was a bit skeptical at first.
Four hours later, and I had just posted my career low round. The concern I had about support was obviously a non-issue in terms of performance. I guess I just needed to get used to the feeling of playing in lightweight golf shoes, as they were completely different from what I was used to wearing.
TRUE Knits feature a water and oil repellent upper, but they are not waterproof. This means the shoes will repel the morning dew, but you are out of luck if you encounter a downpour.
Unfortunately, we had rain in the forecast for day 1 at Sand Valley, so I had to wear my waterproof DryJoys. I just couldn’t risk it. I was pretty bummed.
On day 2, I was excited to throw on the knits for another 20 miles of walking over 36 holes. The walk was more comfortable than the day before in the DryJoys, and I played better in the knits, too. Funny, I was worried about the performance of the knits, but I’ve played nothing but good rounds in them.
Sand everywhere at Sand Valley!
Again, be sure to keep a waterproof pair around after you buy the knits. TRUE has a great waterproof shoe as well, which was reviewed by another contributor here.
As the name implies, Sand Valley is quite sandy. Not just sand trap sandy, but sand dunes and waste bunkers as well. I found myself in all of these a handful of times. Being 90% polyester, 10% spandex, and off-white in color, they got dirty.
Enter another great feature of the TRUE Knit. They are machine washable. Here are before and after pictures. After washing them, they were nearly in out-of-the-box condition.
Before washing (top) and after washing (bottom).
The TRUE Knits are an outstanding walking golf shoe, and outstanding overall shoe for that matter. They are stylish and very comfortable.
What they lose in lacking a waterproof design, they gain in the fact that you can wear these off the course as well. I wear my knits to work every now and again, and I’ve received several compliments on them. As I’ve mentioned throughout the article, performance is definitely there.
I really, really like the TRUE Knits. Everyone else seems to as well, as evidenced by the perfect 5 star rating in 53 reviews on their website. They’re already on backorder because demand is so high.
These are really great shoes, and I don’t hesitate in highly recommending them.

No Laying Up is one of the OG golf podcasts / amateur channels.  For the past 10 years, the brand has blown up from a modest Twitter account with less than 70,000 follows, to a social media channel that has been provided access to some of golf’s titans, like Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Xander Schauffele and Max Homa:
A post shared by No Laying Up (@nolayingup)

And one of the constants during this rocketship trajectory has been a partnership with Callaway that dates back years and culminated with Callaway retailing a Limited Edition “No Laying Up” branded headcover last year. But that partnership, however, has come to an end, as No Laying Up announced in the early hours of 2023 that they would now be partnering with Titleist and FootJoy in 2023.
A post shared by No Laying Up (@nolayingup)

No Laying Up (NLU) brings with it nearly 400,000 Twitter followers, more than 185,000 Instagram followers, over 100,000 YouTube subscribers, and its own private forum. Titleist, meanwhile, has been building valuable partnership with various social media personalities, including our own Golficity Team and similar-growing duo of Mike and Eli from Chasing Scratch. Titleist also elected to partner with The Golfers Journal, a golfer publication that, likewise offers a very unique insight into some of golf’s best, hidden tales.
On that last point, it is worth mentioning that a relationship exists between NLU and The Golfers Journal, as Golfers Journal contributor joined the NLU team on one of their recent “Tourist Sauce” series to Ireland.
But here’s what I find most interesting about NLU and Callaway’s break-up:  who fills the void?  
Presumably, Callaway—who has built relationships with other social media personalities, including Brodie Smith and Golfholics, who, sadly, have since ceased their golf content—will look to fill the very large gap that NLU previously filled.  The content creator landscape, however, has also experienced some changes.
Good Good recently experienced the loss of Micah Morris and Grant Horvat, but also submitted a golf ball to the USGA for conforming approval.   So there’s a lot going on here.
The Good Good team isn’t signed to any equipment deals, although some of the individuals are:  Micah and Grant were signed with Cobra and Mizuno during their Good Good tenure and prior to their departure.  Matt Scharff and Luke Kwon—one of the most recent golfers to join Good Good—are signed to deals with Cobra and Callaway, respectively.  Garrett also has some form of a relationship with Mizuno, but it’s not officially designated on his social media profiles.
Rick Shiels also remains unsigned for equipment, after making a recent apparel change from Nike Golf to Lyle & Scott apparel and ECCO shoes. That said, Rick has made a commitment to playing the clubs that he believes play best for him. Speaking of which, Peter Finch, likewise, is unsigned for equipment but has made a similar pledge to Rick.
That said, if an equipment brand needs a face, there’s always some point at which both of those gentlemen may reconsider their brand agnosticism.
The other big players are, arguably, Erik Anders Lang and Barstool’s Fore Play.  But EAL ceased his relationship with TaylorMade a few years ago and, conversely, Fore Play seems very, very happy with their relationship, as demonstrated by the close ties with Tiger, wealth of videos of Team TaylorMade members—Rory, Tommy Fleetwood, etc.—and TaylorMade/Barstool collaborated products, including Fore Play labeled TP5 golf balls.
So to recap this round: NLU is no longer with Callaway. And just like equipment season is heating up with all the new releases, it’s safe to say that we can anticipate some big announcements coming from the social media/content creator space too.

TRUE Linkswear is a true success story.  After being in founded in 2009, the company experienced some struggles, but has truly reinvented itself since 2017, when it was taken over by CEO Jason Moore and his brother, PGA TOUR player Ryan Moore.
Over the past four years, TRUE has essentially doubled its business year-over-year each of the past four years while, as Jason Moore puts it, staying in its “walking only” lane. But it seems that TRUE is ready to step outside its “lane” and deliver other high-quality, stylish products to its patrons.

To further ensure you enjoy the walk, TRUE has developed two pairs of pants: the All Day 5-Pocket and All Day Chino Pants for men.
“All Day” is a technically designed collection of pants built for comfort, versatility and performance. The line complements TRUE’s ever-growing collection of walking-focused golf shoes, including the recently released FS-01 model. All Day waist sizes range from 28 to 38 inches with 32-inch inseams and a durable yet flexible fabric blend of 92% nylon and 8% spandex. Both the 5-Pocket and Chino Pants are available in six colors: black, charcoal grey, khaki, olive, coffee and lunar.

TRUE President Jason Moore said:
“Expanding TRUE beyond shoes and into apparel is part of our decade-long dream of creating golf’s ultimate lifestyle brand for those entrenched so deeply in the game they demand more from their gear on and off the course… All Day Pants are engineered with our Northwest perspective combining the durability and weather-ready engineering of climbing pants with a modern, upscale aesthetic. We’re blurring the line between high-performance and ultimate comfort.”
The All Day 5-Pocket and Chino Pants feature classic silhouettes updated with modern touches. The 5-Pocket Pant embodies a denim profile with slim tapering, while the Chino pays homage to a classic trouser silhouette with an athletic cut and feel. Functional material caters to an active lifestyle without looking overly technical. The durable nylon material is stretchable, comes in a matte finish, and is water and stain-resistant while remaining highly breathable for warmer days. These technically designed pants perfectly match all-day, all-season wear in any climate or condition.
Slim/tapered fit, 4-way stretch, abrasion resistant nylon, natural matte finish and feel, DWR water and stain resistant coating, highly breathable, concealed zipper cell phone/passport pocket, secure YKK back zipper pocket, elastic key loop, and high visibility reflective back cuff piping.
