Bold Styles, Unique Designs

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.

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 some of the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold and unique styles.

Handmade by Artisans

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.

Highly recommended

These are really nice quality shoes. The mix of leather and suede is done really well. Fit was true to size, no defects at all delivery was exactly as asked. This is my 2nd pair of Taft shoes and I will definitely be ordering again.

Chocolate Gladiators

I love my new chocolate gladiator men’s dress shoes. The shoes are well crafted and they fit perfectly. The costumer service was excellent and the shoes arrived on time. Lastly, the design is the exact amount of flash while still remaining classy. Thank you Taft!

Unfortunately haven’t worn them yet

They were too big so had to send them back and they have been out of stock ever since so I haven’t had a chance to get my size yet.

Gladiator...more like...Glad I Bought Them

From the moment these shoes were removed from the box, I knew the pictures online were a good representation of them, however the pictures did not do the Gladiator shoe enough justice in person.  I could not be more impressed with the quality and styling of these shoes.  From the Goodyear welt, the subtle fiddle waist, and the combination of textiles, they are simply perfect shoes!  I have worn them now on three occasions, and if it weren’t for carpet floors I would have worn them all night long and possibly even to bed.  Thank you for continuing to push the limits of traditional dress shoes!

Find My Size

How To Measure

For fail proof measure please take the time to measure your foot.
  1. Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  2. 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)
  3. With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  4. 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
All Taft shoes are designed 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.
In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.
