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

    Product Details
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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 with rubber injections offers durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
    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.

    Amazing Style

    I love these shoes, they have such a unique look. They pair well with navy or dark grey chinos. You’ll get compliments left and right.

    These shoes are beautiful. It was a wow right out of the box. My husband never says wow to anything, but these shoes made an impression in him. I got a size 8 and it fits him perfectly. He is usually an 8.5 in order brands but i bought an 8 based on recommendations. And oh, the shoes are so well made. I expect them to last a very long time. Compliments everywhere we go..

    Good But Not As Good as the Woven Saints

    I ended up keeping these. The shoes look good but I’m not in love with them. I own all 3 colors of Taft’s woven Saints which I prefer over these because they simply feel better on my feet and have better overall aesthetics. It’s not the boot’s fault so I’ll still give them a 5/5 rating.

    Boot with Style and Class

    THE JUDE BOOT IS WOVEN is one of my all time favorite. The fit was perfect, everybody is asking me where I bought the boot and its definitely a well made boot. A must buy if you're already thinking about it. I am glad I put my name on the waitlist. It was worth it.

    Better than Rome Boot!!!

    My first experience with Taft was a few years ago while I was visiting my younger sister in New York City and we both caught a Rome Boot in Brown out of the corner of our eyes. Stunning, we both agreed. I need a pair I snickered, and two weeks later when I got back home they were waiting for me at my front door. Got to love my little sister. The leather was soft, the construction was honestly pretty damn impressive (I wear Ferragamo, Prada, John Varvatos, Cowboy boots, the usual ;). I can not tell you how many compliments I received on these boots, literally every time I put them on someone said something to me and not just one “type” of person either. The guys at the gas station liked them, my girlfriend liked them, my banker liked them, my buddies liked them, they just ARE a damn good looking pair of boots. (I could not write a review for Rome Brown boots under the Rome Boots section, as I bought them as a guest I guess, it wouldn’t let me!). Then it happened. The sole started leaking water, then about a week later the little pieces of rubber in the sole started falling apart. They were done. I figured it was an early boot from Taft given the fact they were a newer company and reasonably priced, so I bit the bullet and ordered another pair, through them on and kept the compliments coming. However! 3 months into this second pair they were useless again. To have the sole’s redone it takes a special “Blake Construction” machine which not all cobblers own and if they do I was getting $200.00 quotes for a pair of boots (not both pairs, $200.00 each!). Now, I’ve gone on to buy over a dozen more Taft shoes, not because I wasn’t upset with the customer service, I was, but because they just do so many damn things well. If they could get a little better on customer service, (Like work with the guy that just bought $550.00 worth of the same boot which is pretty much useless now and is still trying to give you another chance!), At least one of the two pairs of boots I had purchased should have been returned and fixed, or replaced. Period. Normal wear and tear in Alabama isn’t that bad and shouldn’t ruin a boot in 3 months. Particularly not two pairs back to back (see pics). Taft has gotten much better with their other boots/shoes though and I will reluctantly continue to order from them if I can’t find anything I like. I may go back to two pairs of Ferragamo’s rather than four pairs of Tafts. I now have 12 pairs of Taft shoes/boots not including my two ruined pairs of Rome Brown boots. If customer service reaches out and attempts to make this right in anyway possible I will probably go ahead and order The Hiro in Midnight, Monaco in Black and a plaid boot in honey, if someone would get back to me! If they fixed the sole on the Rome boot in Brown, I’d order my 3rd pair today, I just can’t waste anymore money though!
