The Dylan Boot in Black
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.
COUNTER: Full-Grain Leather (Italy)
OUTSOLE: Leather sole with rubber inserts
Standard D Width
Blake Construction (resoleable)
We design with boldness in mind to ensure that all our products are as unique and stylish as you. You will not find shoes like this anywhere else.
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high-quality leathers make our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with some of the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold and unique styles.
Every product is hand made by a generational shoemaker in Spain or Portugal. Every piece of leather is painted and stained by hand to give a beautiful finish that is unique to each shoe. The entire process of making a TAFT item is guided by human touch, allowing us to use only the best sections of the leather.
Not what I expected. Thought the shoe would have a more glossy appearance. The shoe quality is there just doesn’t have the shine
I wear a size 10.5 and I ordered 10 bc I read they come big. They did fit but they are narrower than my feet so they are not comfortable. If you have wide feet maybe order a bigger size.
The construction of the boot is incredibly high quality—from the leather itself, to the rigidity of the buckle, to the sole. My fit was incredibly comfortable and l could wear it out for an evening upon receiving the boot, without stretching the leather through pre-wearing or using a shoe machine. I highly recommend this boot.
I needed a black shoe for my work uniform so I got the Dylan Boot in black. I have to say that they are absolutely beautifully made. I’m on my feet for 10 hours a day and so far they have held up great and are quite comfortable! If I needed more assurance that Taft is dedicated to a quality product, the packaging, the complimentary shoe horn and travel bag make their commitment very clear. I’ll be getting the Dylan boot in all colors soon.
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.
