Our TAFT Christmas Miracle

Christmas tree built from TAFT shoes

Thanks to the amazing response we have had to our shoe release and the Reddit article that was published about us, we have had a killer fourth quarter this year. We are still very new and small (yep, still just a one-man show) but we have had some amazing things happen. Because of this, we wanted to give back in whatever way we could. As a young father of two children, I understand the worry and concern of caring for children...especially at this time of year. We set aside some profits and decided to help a few families out with Christmas. 

A quick summary of the four families we were able to help with Christmas:

  • A single mother of two beautiful little girls
  • A young couple with a newborn baby in Chicago
  • A family in Texas that just lost their workshop in a fire
  • A single mother that works three jobs to care for her little babies

We overnighted four checks to each of these families on December 22nd to arrive in time to purchase some last minute gifts for their children. I have followed up with them to see what we were able to do with the money. Here is what that money was able to buy:

  1. Seven sets of Christmas pajamas
  2. Two LeapFrog educational tablets to help with spelling, vocabulary, and math
  3. One RC truck (that can handle the Texas terrain)
  4. Two Barbie dolls
  5. A number of articles of clothing for both girls and boys
  6. A much-needed accessory for a bassoon
  7. A baby swing for the newborn
  8. Stockings full of candy

We are so grateful for all of you that have made this possible. We love giving back and this year we were able to help brighten others' days because of your support. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you very much. 

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a Happy New Year!

How To Measure

For fail proof measure please take the time to measure your foot.
  1. Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  2. Standing firmly on the piece of paper with your heel slightly touching the wall, mark the paper where your foot is the longest (most likely at the tip of your big toe)
  3. With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  4. Take that measurement and match it with a measurement in the “Inches” column in the size chart.
    • Wear socks when measuring your feet
    • Measure your feet at the end of the day, as your feet tend to expand throughout the day
    • Measure both of your feet, as one may be bigger than the other
