I love these boots!!!
Warning for Size 15's: Amazing Looking Boots but Runs Small
Pros: - Boots look, feel and smell 10 times better in person than any review or photo says they do (yes, even the 5 stars) - Attention to detail with the packaging is an experience all on its own - Arrived on time - Came with accessories Cons: - Doesn't fit, even if you ignore the Size Down warning I've been more than excited to buy these shoes since I first saw them online. Instagram frequently recommends shoe companies, but I always ignore them because most shoe stores generally don't carry my size (Size 15.) Taft has been the first of the few none-sports related/stylish companies that do, so I rushed to look at the options. To make a long story short, I read the reviews beforehand, and ordered size 15 instead of going a size down. But, from the moment I saw the size of the box, I knew something was wrong. I held hope, but these shoes squeezed my feet in and crushed my toes. I even compared them to my other shoes to see if the Vikings had a chance, but these boots were shorter than any other boot/dress shoe/sneaker (sizes 13-15) that I had. So I had to send them back. The return/exchange process is simple, quick and great, and I got everything I paid back by the end of the week. But, obviously, if you're a size 15, you'll be wasting your time because this is as high as they go.
Beautiful boot but not comfortable
This is a very nice looking and well-made boot. I got so many compliments on them when I wore them. But they are so uncomfortable. There’s no cushion or give and fit tight even after returning for a bigger size as these run small. Plus, the inside bottom It is very hard and and not cushioned at all. Feels like your walking on concrete barefoot. This type of leather is unique and good looking but extremely tight and restricting. My gait changed while walking in them as to,accomodate for the discomfort. Hopefully as they break in they will get more comfortable but I already know I am going to have to get some cushioned insoles to get a sense of comfort as cushion for the bottom of your feet with this boot is non-existent. Again. They are some great looking boots, but if they’re not comfortable to wear, all the great looks really doesn’t mean a thing
The shoes fit me very nicely, the look is really slick. The leather is still stiff and is gonna need a break in, but I feel great walking around in these
Luxurious and Durable
These are like a unicorn. These Vibram soles are incredible, I read up on the history of these soles and they are incredibly durable and waterproof. Seeing them in person, they really are a formidable sole. The Goodyear welt creates a very clean look and a nice pop with the double threads along the outside of the sole. The rubberized texture is awesome with a great texture. They were comfy enough from wearing them around work for an hour that I took them outside without hesitation. Everyone at my work is familiar with TAFT shoes now, these are the 3rd boots, to go with 3 dress shoes and 2 sneakers...and three shoe trees! Bring them back!!! I need four more! Honestly these boots are the most incredible ones yet, holy dang ol' talkin' bout some beauties man.
