THE 5 basics of barefoot | natural motion shoes

There are some basic industry standard requirements of every minimal | barefoot| natural motion shoe. Biomechanic experts have studied for years the effects that shoes can have on your body, and TRUE has been listening. That’s why every pair of TRUEs is built with natural motion in mind. If you’ve been golf shoe shopping recently, you may have noticed that barefoot golf shoes are becoming more main-stream. But what exactly is a barefoot shoe? We’ll help explain that. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and lately the industry has been flattering us. There are a lot of golf shoes out there making audacious claims to being ‘barefoot’ or ‘minimal.’ At TRUE, we’re thankful the ‘big guys’ are validating the same technologies and practices that have been at our core since day one.  The only problem is, they still don‘t quite get it. Here are the 5 elements required of every ‘barefoot shoe’ and how we stack up against our competition:

why walking golf is a true lifestyle

TRUE was founded by innovators looking for one thing- a golf shoe designed for walking. It seemed logical for such a shoe to exist, right? Especially considering the game is centuries old and rooted in a tradition of walking a golf course but much to our dismay no such shoe yet existed.

At TRUE, we believe golfers should be able to walk the course and enjoy the many benefits of that walking lifestyle. Beyond the tranquil and enjoyable experience that a four-hour walk on the links provides, the average golfer burns double the calories when walking versus riding. Whether you walk or ride you’ll notice a huge difference in the natural motion you experience as you connect with the course in a whole new way. TRUEs will eradicate most golfers of their ‘post round blisters’ fear. In your TRUEs you will feel confident in your ability to walk a full 18. Countless TRUE friends have written us thanking TRUE for creating a shoe that helps them walk the links pain free and enjoy the game they love even more.

An unspoken requirement of TRUE employees is to get out and enjoy 18 holes of walking golf a week -tough we know. This tedious requirement allows us ample time to test and approve our products integrity and walk-ability and this is how we’ve been able to perfect the ultimate walking golf shoe. Try a pair of TRUEs, and more importantly, get out and enjoy the walk. Your body will thank you.
