(TACOMA, Wash.) — Continuing to craft and develop more naturally comfortable, extremely durable and environmentally friendly footwear, TRUE linkswear announces the launch of the new Original 1.2 golf shoe. Staying TRUE to the heritage and style of the Original model, the OG1.2 offers the same fit, feel, and minimalist functionality – with all new sustainable materials engineered to enhance durability while adding fresh aesthetic detailing.
TRUE began by adding all new upper materials to their durable rubber tread outsole and proprietary 2-year waterproof construction. The all new “Bulletproof” Alternative Leather was engineered for peak durability (highly scratch resistant) and waterproofing. The sock fit collar and tongue are composed of high-grade neoprene, which is not only soft to the touch, but also ideal for temperature regulation and water resistance. Add in new reflective rope laces, high breathability cushioned insole, and design updates and you have all new, remastered TRUE Original 1.2.
Years into their initiative to find more responsible, sustainable practices, TRUE continues to find innovative ways to incorporate environmentally friendly materials while boosting performance. “The OG1.2 takes our most iconic shoe to all new levels, both in terms of long-term durability and sustainability,” Jason Moore, TRUE President | Partner states, “Our new alternative leather has a fraction of the environmental impact of traditional leathers and holds up better to the wear and tear they’re exposed to on course. Couple that with our re-usable, high quality shoe bag in lieu of the traditional (and wasteful) shoe box and it’s just another way TRUE is continuing to make our best effort to create lasting change in our space.” TRUE is hoping the OG1.2’s literal outside-the-box thinking will help push forward industry wide consensus and collaboration towards more sustainable building practices.
The Original 1.2 is available in three colors; Pure White, Chambers Grey, and White/Black Saddle – all of which are available for purchase at www.truelinkswear.com. MSRP $160 USD.
