With the padwan, an innovative barefoot platform is now available to golfers of all ages

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Already recognized as the industry leader in golf’s minimalist footwear movement, TRUE linkswear has released the first children’s golf shoe on a barefoot platform. The TRUE padwan blends the balance and performance found in its adult line with the versatility and comfort junior golfers need.

Inspired by the TRUE sensei, the TRUE padwan was designed for golf but ready for anything. It provides a super comfortable TRUE kids barefoot platform and breathable mesh upper that would allow juniors to wear it on the course, to school or for everyday play. Built on the sensei outsole, first used in the sensei shoe, features a profile and spike configuration that provide enhanced traction and stability, while maintaining the thinnest sole in golf.

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,” while 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 feature 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
