How to measure your foot
  • Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  • 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)
  • With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  • 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

Product Details
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high-quality leathers make our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold styles using the most unique leathers in the world.
PAINTED BY HAND
Our leathers are painted, stained, and burnished by hand. Creating a unique shoe means not being limited on what we can design…finishing the shoes by hand gives us total freedom in our products and makes every single pair a unique piece of art.
HAND-CUT AND STITCHED
All of our patterns are cut by hand. We do not use molds or lasers to cut the leather. This takes much more time but it allows for only the best sections of a hide to be used.
SOFT CALFSKIN LINING
All of our shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.
STACKED LEATHER SOLE
Stacked leather sole with rubber injections offers durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
BLAKE-STITCHED
Our shoes feature Blake-stitched construction for longevity and comfort. It also allows for increased flexibility and a sleek silhouette. You will notice a big difference from normal, cemented shoes to a stitched pair of TAFT footwear. Get ready for comfort right out of the box.
Sizing Guide
All Taft shoes are design to match standard US dress shoe sizes. However, to ensure the perfect fit, please make sure:
All our shoes are standard D width. If you have wide feet, please select next size up.
If you wear in-between sizes, please size down for Taft boots and shoes.
Do not order your sneaker size. Please size down 0.5 - 1 US number.
In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.

The TAFT Quality Promise

Beautiful Shoes. Beautiful Prices.

Handmade in Europe by experienced artisans, every pair is made with precision, patience and decades of experience. We are advocates of ethical fashion.

In a world of poorly made shoes, TAFT products are built to last. Every pair is hand-cut and Blake-stitched using vegetable-tanned leathers from top European tanneries and mills. Your shoes will look beautiful right out of the box, and for years to come.

By selling exclusively online, we save our customers an average of $200 a pair. You can compare the quality of our shoes to $500 shoes you’d find sitting on the shelves at big box stores. From the beginning, we’ve wanted nothing more than to offer high quality at a lower price.

A shoe like no other!

LOVE LOVE LOVE my Oxblood Rome Boots! So many head turns and compliments. They are big on me but that's because they're Men's shoes am I'm a Women. Customer service is super responsive and easy to work with! Definitely would buy again, but will wait until smaller sizes are available for the women that love TAFT shoes.

beautiful shoe, slightly loose fit, but very comfortable.

I normally wear an 11.5 (45.5) in most footwear, though it ranges from 10 in some cases, to a 13 (puma drift cat 5's have some very concerning sizing). These I got in an 11 due to people reporting that they ran large, and I have tender feet in the lateral direction, so pinching across the width of my foot is exceptionally painful. That being said, I'd be tempted to get a 10 the next time I order boots. but I'd also be ready to have to exchange back to 11s. They haven't broken in yet, but I find zero discomfort after wearing them a full day. My wife recommended these to me, and I'm very glad I listened to her. I already have plans for other taft shoes and boots, I love these boots, and I can't wait to get a good layer of polish on them to bring out the depth.

Looks fantastic; comfort could be worse

These boots look even better in person; the quality is fantastic. They're not as comfortable as the skater shoes I often wear, but also not as bad as they could be.

Incredible Look and Feel

Wow, these boots are well worth it. Already ordered my 2nd pair.

Try: "jack boot", leather, size 9, suede...
