What they say:

 

We wondered - what would happen if we took our iconic TRUE Original and splurged on every material used to build it? And the TRUE linkswear OG Premium was born. Improved leather, waterproofing and cushion ensure that you will enjoy the walk in TRUE style.

 

Technology:

 

*Premium supple vintage full grain leather upper - Water and oil repellent. More breathable and waterproof than the original

 

*Microsuede insert top - Soft, suede material around the ankle tops and tongue, which provides more comfort

 

*Natural width toe box - Give feet and toes the room they need to naturally generate more power

 

*Cross-Life tread - Differently shaped and placed traction lugs/nubs. Provide maximum versatility

 

*Thin, flexible sole - Allows for enhanced feel and conforms to your movement

 

*Forever Cushion PU inserts - Provides extra cushioning and doesn't lose "bounce" over time

 

*Defender repellent system - A coating on the shoe that wicks away oil, water and stains.

What we say:

 

As TRUE has already said, the TRUE linkswear OG Premium is essentially the same shoe as the TRUE linkswear Original, save for a few differences. The OG Premium boasts higher quality leather, which feels softer and more supple. This actually makes quite a big difference in the overall feel of the shoe, which is why we gave it higher comfort ratings than the Original. The OG Premium also features slightly better cushioning, which also contributes to more comfort. Aside from an upgrade in quality and comfort, the performance technology of the two shoes are the same. The traction system/tread provides good feel for the ground, but doesn't grip outstandingly. However, it's sufficient for most and definitely up to the task. We recommend the TRUE linkswear OG Premium for those looking for something a bit different, but still demand high comfort.
