I bought my first pair of Linkswear last week and could not wait to play a round in them because i have heard how great they are. I must say first that I have been wearing Ecco spikeless for about a year or so. Boy was I disappointed my heel and achilles are killing me I dont know if its the way your feet are grounded or what but they hurt. I will be back to my Eccos and stay there.

It just means your plantar fasciitis is too tight.

When I first got my phx's one of my heel's really hurt for the first 4 or 5 rounds I played.  Then it stopped hurting.  I think it's just an adjustment period, similar to when I moved to Free's for running.  Wouldn't go back to traditional shoes in either respect.

Sometimes I just read something and can only shake my head.  I suppose this comes with the territory.  As True starts selling products to a wider market, people will buy them without understanding what they're getting.  Trues are a "barefoot" shoe... essentially the complete opposite of wearing orthotics in traditional shoes.  

A) If you wear orthotics, your feet aren't used to walking around without support (you've basically been wearing a cast on your feet) and so no s*** your feet hurt after jumping in cold turkey to barefoot shoes.  You're working all kinds of muscles and ligaments in your feet and ankles that aren't used to doing anything.  

B) Wearing orthotics in a pair of shoes like Trues is defeating the entire purpose of the shoe.  If that's what you're going to do, you'll probably be much happier with a pair of Eccos.

Are you wearing the streets or the biom hybrids?
