True Linkswear introduces the True Elements Hybrid for 2016. It is called the hybrid because it has features that make the shoe breathable and waterproof. This is the challenge all shoe companies face – how to make a shoe that has these features and is also comfortable. We think that True Linkswear has done just that. We have been big fans and supporters of the company since day one with its comfortable design featuring a large toe box and minimal heel. We also liked the fact that they require no break-in time … right out of the box and onto the course. The new True Elements Hybrid doesn’t disappoint and continues the True Linkswear comfort legacy. The comfort was expected but the real deal is the introduction of a shoe that is “weather-ready” … ideal for heat, cold, rain, and wind (i.e., the elements). True Linkswear accomplishes this by developing a shoe liner with a material featuring Outlast technology. Outlast technology is a material that was originally designed for NASA to protect astronauts from temperature fluctuations in space. The material absorbs, stores and releases heat for optimal thermal comfort. This is different than moisture wicking material which manages moisture by reacting to your sweat and pulling it away from the skin. Instead, Outlast technology will proactively manage heat while controlling the production of moisture before it begins. Simply put, the True Elements Hybrid cools when it’s hot and heats when its cold and has undergone waterproof testing that is four times the industry standard. The True Elements Hybrid also feature a double layered mesh upper, airflow cushioning, and insert to ensure comfort in the warmest of conditions. First time out with the True Elements Hybrid we walked 18 and experienced zero issues. This is the most flexible True Linkswear shoe they’ve ever made. The comfort is so good you feel like jogging around the course and then the thought crosses your mind about wearing them to work. Absolutely second to none. The sole of the shoe has a little larger nubs on them as compared to the True Motions providing greater stability and cushion. Throughout the swing, from driver to wedge, our feet stayed firmly planted to the ground. The shoe offers plenty of room width wise but not boxy – the ideal fit. We have also found their customer service to be second to none. Last year we had a couple of issues with two of their 2015 models and contacted the company. The same day we emailed them we received a response and within a week, a replacement pair of shoes arrived at our office. This is the right way to treat customers and it doesn’t go unnoticed. The True Elements Hybrid is the new #PersonalFavorite around this office. The True Elements Hybrid is currently priced at $99.99 and available in color combinations of black/black, grey/lime, and white/grey. Learn more at True Linkswear.
