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 Dylan Boot in Black. This is our first Jodhpur Boot and something we have been working on for a long time. We took a sleek silhouette and designed the Jodhpur strap to buckle further down on the upper as to be a bit more visible and prominent. The upper is made of high-quality, Italian leather tanned and milled in Tuscany. The sole unit is double-stacked leather with rubber inserts for added grip, durability, and comfort. This is an aggressive boot that has become very popular with the rise of minimalist fashion. We use our Bristol last on the Dylan Boot for the very slim, sleek, and minimal shape. 

  • UPPER: Full-Grain Leather (Italy)
  • COUNTER: Full-Grain Leather (Italy)
  • OUTSOLE: Leather sole with rubber inserts
  • Standard D Width
  • Blake Construction (resoleable)

 

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 boots and shoes are designed to match standard US dress shoe sizes.
All our shoes are standard D width. If you have wide feet, size up.
If you wear in-between sizes, please size down for Taft boots and shoes.
Buying Sneakers? Size up if you typically wear a half size.

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.

Great looking boot.

After eyeing various Jodhpurs for a while, I made the decision to go with the Dylan. I love the design, with the buckle being situated a little lower so as to show more underneath jeans/pants. Have never been a big fan of pebble grain but it really works on these and looks really nice, not cheap like pebble grain can sometimes appear. Fit is great, absolutely LOVE the last. I’m only rating 4 stars as one boot had a minor cosmetic flaw when I received it, and the sole edge dressing was a bit sloppy.. Time will tell how these hold up, but first impressions have been good. I’ve only worn them a few times but plan on having some rubber half soles installed since I do a lot of walking on harsh surfaces like concrete. Already considering purchasing a second pair, for whatever that’s worth.

Posh...with a catch.

Like usual, I love everything about Taft boots; however, wear with care, as these boots are not suitable for concrete floors, or even walking across a crosswalk, let alone a sidewalk. As a barber, we have concrete floors at work, and I wore these once: from the floors, to simply walking to and from my car, the soles of these boots wore down far too easily, for me to give them five stars. I wore them once but the soles look like I’ve worn them everyday for a month.
