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 Dragon 2.0 in Forest. We took all the magic of the original Dragon and coupled it with some thoughtful and unique upgrades. We switched over to a sleek, strong nylon pull tab that your pants can easily slip over without getting caught. The 2.0s feature a Ridgeway sole to be even more flexible and comfortable from the first wear and even sturdier in wet conditions. We left the welt and heel stack natural to provide a bit of contrast. In true TAFT fashion, we added a heavy texture to the Stead Waxed Commander leather to make this boot stand out while keeping the boot fully waterproof and maintaining its crazy durability. 

  • Goodyear Welt Construction
  • Waxed Commander Suede from C.F. Stead 
  • Waxed Laces
  • Ridgeway Sole
  • Fully Leather-Lined
  • Handmade in Portugal

All boots ship with an extra pair of laces, travel bags, and a shoe horn. 

Product Details
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.
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.
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.
The Ridgeway sole is one of the most renowned rubber soles for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. It is a heavy-duty sole that is the perfect complement to your waterproof Dragons. 
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.

Dragon 2.0 in Forest, Sharp! Beautiful handmade boot. I wear 11 EEE and Taft 12 D fit me fine.

I bought the Dragon 2.0 in Forest. My foot is wide (AE: 11 EEE); additionally my left foot is a little bigger than the right. I took a chance buying the D width Dragon 2.0, and used the online store recommendation to buy size 12. The boots fit snugly across the tarsals but because of the waxy commander (suede?) leather was never uncomfortable and within a couple days fit perfectly. They have a very nice profile and don't make my feet look big. My wife thinks they look really sharp, and they'll be fine in any setting that doesn't require a suit. They are very well made: no flaws in the CF Stead leather, stitching, Goodyear welt: it is a handmade boot. I like the sole. Dark green color is subtle and different from anything else, and very attractive. I got a great price on these, as Dragon 3.0 is on the way in the fall. I look forward to Taft offering widths in the future. Taft styling is ahead of every other company, and I am very impressed with my boots' quality. These will be easy to keep clean, and I will maintain their waterproof with beeswax/dubbin. Came with extra laces, a shoe bag, and a 9" plastic shoe horn. Shipping was quick. Thank you!

I didn't know I needed a green boot until I got these!

I mostly wear black, but when I wear colors they tend to be navy and olive. These look amazing with black chinos and dark denim jeans. They are super comfortable. I had very little break in time and the outsoles are "hefty". I live in MN. These could survive sidewalks if one needed to in a pinch. You'd be cold though! Don't get these and expect them to be a winter boot for places colder than 30°.

Absolutely covetous!

These boots are not for me, sadly. They are an anniversary gift for my husband who has been in love with Taft boots for as long as I’ve known him, as well as a dragon lover AND his favorite color is green! An almost holy trinity of shoe features! All of our male friends that I have sneaky shown them to love them as well and spend many minutes just breathing in the beautiful leathery new shoe smell. The sizes do run a bit big so my husband has bought a size down in the past so that is what I did as well ( our anniversary is in July so fingers crossed that was the right move). The shipping was so fast that one would think they had been flown here on the back of the mythical beast they are named for. Surely King Arthur himself never owned boots of such quality. I will definitely purchase from Taft again and again (as finances allow as they are on the more expensive side of shoes, but well worth it as the quality is top notch) . The only downside is there is not a Dragon Boot for ladies. Surely Queen Guinevere would have liked to slay dragons in such style and comfort. Well done Taft, well done!
