How to measure your foot
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

Meet The Dragon 2.0 in London Fog. We took all the magic of the original Dragon and coupled it with some thoughtful and unique upgrades. We switched over to a sleek, strong nylon pull tab that your pants can easily slip over without getting caught. The 2.0s feature a Ridgeway sole to be even more flexible and comfortable from the first wear and even sturdier in wet conditions. We left the welt and heel stack natural to provide a bit of contrast. In true TAFT fashion, we added a heavy texture to the Stead Waxed Commander leather to make this boot stand out while keeping the boot fully waterproof and maintaining its crazy durability. 

  • Goodyear Welt Construction
  • Waxed Commander Suede from C.F. Stead 
  • Waxed Laces
  • Ridgeway Sole
  • Fully Leather-Lined
  • Handmade in Portugal

All boots ship with an extra pair of laces, travel bags, and a shoe horn. 

 

Product Details
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.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high quality leathers makes 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.
DAINITE RUBBER SOLE
Dainite makes the most renowned rubber sole for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. The best boots in the world are often made with a Dainite sole and we knew it was the right choice for this style.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.

Good Pair of Boots

These boots are good, really good. There's something about the leather, the stitching, the shape that really just looks good. And they are goodyear welt, so the construction is top notch. If you take care of them, you'll get 30 years out of them. And unlike cheap shoes and boots, you can get them resoled.

Dragon Boot in London Fog

Kory First, its hard to "road test" any pair of boots, because if the are marked up, it becomes a return issue. That being said, the Dragon Boot I tried on fit my foot well. I liked that the "scaly" texture of the boot for a more worn look. The boot is a bit heavier and the sole was a bit stiffer than another pair of boots I own from Thursday Boot. Each of these boots have things I like. The dragon Boot is waterproof, looks great with jeans and has a nice comfortable fit for my foot. However, I do think the boots should be made in half sizes. The only reason I returned the boots is the price. The other pair of boots I own and used for comparison are also a well made product, a bit lighter, a bit more flexible with the sole and a lower price point. I would have liked to add the Dragon Boot to my collection, but the price point made the most impact for me at this point in time. I would love to re-visit when a sale is on which may allow me to afford that purchase.

Boots are great I was lucky to get them before this style sold out. Casual or dress it’s hard to look away from them. Tons of compliments. Third pair now and I doubt I stop there. Keep making a great product and doing great things
