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
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.
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.

Awesome boots are worth the money

I wear 11 sneakers and a 10 fit perfect. Probably still have a little room to put in my orthotics as I have flat feet. Didn't take long to break in either. So glad I bought these boots

Best boots

I’ve been wanting some dragons for a while and these definitely live up to the hype. Pretty sure I’ll be picking up another color soon.

Wrong sizing

Kory, I appreciate the quality, workmanship, and looks of my new Dragon boots. The only problem is that they are too small. From reading your own website and the comments of other boot owners, a size 11 was the appropriate size for me. It turns out that the size 11 is too small but the size 12 would have been too big. I, unfortunately, have a foot that is in-between. The lack of half sizes is the biggest weakness of your company. I was warned of this so I guess I can't complain. But I'm stuck with boots that are too small for me to wear comfortably for any length of time. It's really too bad because I really like them...

Better than my high expectations

I bought the Dragon Boot after hearing all is the accolades and praise. I thought... maybe hyperbole. Nope!!! The boot was way, way significantly better than I expected. They were a gorgeous rust color. Superior unreal quality and they fit beautifully. They are comfortable to wear and just amazing to dress up or down with him. I can’t praise it enough. I bought the size 11 which is size and they fit beautifully. Such great vision service. I will buy more. Thanks Alfonso I am going to save my pennies and buy a drogo. Boot in green.

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