TRUE linkswear unveils limited edition run of TRUE gent wingtip

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- With dogwoods blooming across the South and the golf world gearing up for the game's most prestigious major championship, TRUE linkswear has unveiled a limited edition run of its new TRUE gent wingtip, as well as some complementary apparel pieces.

"There are several iconic stops on the PGA TOUR each year, and with spring upon us and a revamped line of shoes at our disposal, this was a great opportunity to do something really fun and really creative," said Jeremy Moore, president of the company. "Given the tradition and history of the season's first major, we knew the TRUE gent was the perfect shoe from our collection to really celebrate it."

By combining the heritage of classic golf style with a core built for walking, the TRUE gent is an ode to the traditional fashions that shaped golf. Its wingtip upper is fashioned out of ultra premium leather, and its completely waterproof upper wraps your foot in 360-degree protection. Built on the TRUE Flex-Feel-Gent outsole, the faux heel in the back gives the look of a traditional shoe while still maintaining a zero-drop nature.

TRUE also is releasing a limited edition hat and t-shirt for sale. The hat is a white TRUE snapback with an all new LE logo, while the t-shirt is an Augusta-Green premium tri-blend that features a unique, vintage art concept perfectly suited for April.

All of the new LE series is available for sale at www.truelinkswear.com.

About TRUE linkswear
TRUE linkswear, a Scottsdale-based footwear and apparel company, created the first golf shoe built on a barefoot platform, allowing the golfer to truly "Feel the Course" and enabling them to walk 36 holes right out of the box in total comfort. TRUE was inspired by the emerging minimalist trend in running, where many shoes have shifted away from highly-engineered structures, such as arch supports and heavily-cushioned heels, to a shoe that better utilizes the anatomical features of the foot. TRUE brings this nature-engineered approach to golf by creating a shoe built on a barefoot platform featuring a wide-toe box so toes can function naturally through the swing, which encourages proper weight transfer, balance and natural stability. Only TRUE offers the thinnest sole in golf (2.5mm), while still providing the durability to stand up to the most avid player. TRUE products are now available at many national retailers, including Golfsmith, PGA TOUR Superstores, Golf Galaxy and GolfTown in Canada. For more information, visit www.truelinkswear.com.
