What we say:


Aside from a few small upgrades, the TRUE Original 1.2 is very similar to its predecessor, the TRUE Original. This is a good thing, as we liked the Original. The main differences we noticed were the neoprene tongue, which adds extra waterproofing, and the insole, which seems to wick moisture away a bit better and is slightly more comfortable. The TRUE OG1.2 is a cool mix of casual and performance styles, combining what's good about both types of shoes into a trendy, all-around golf shoe. Aside from excellent waterproofing, what stands out the most is it's durability and year-round wearability. The leather upper keeps your feet dry in wet conditions, yet doesn't really overheat too much in hot conditions. The thin outsole provides that extra bit of feel during the swing that the more intuitive golfer will definitely appreciate. This flexible, lightweight outsole is great for walking on and off the course as well. We recommend the TRUE OG 1.2 for mid-level golfers who need something reliable that will get them through a round no matter the weather.
