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 Rust. 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
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.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
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.
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.
RIDGEWAY RUBBER SOLE
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. 
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
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.

No other title is worthy... the Dragon Boot.

Feels like real dragon skin. Impervious to the elements. Impeccable craftsmanship. I want to kick a door in with these boots. If Superman had to wear a boot, and Krypton was out of Superman boots, he would wear a Dragon Boot as a back up. They do need some breaking in, but these boots are going to be my number one.

Dragon boot

They fit well and I like the new sole more than the first version but I liked the first version’s leather pattern a little more. Overall still a nice boot.

My new favorite pair, maybe!?

Just like my other two pair of Taft boots, these get compliments and turn heads anywhere they go. Great finish, solid feel, and looks to boot. Can’t wait for them to get a little age and start showing their natural patina!

Finally, The Perfect Boot!

Let me preface by saying, my boot needs were pretty impossible to fill. I wanted something stylish, not western, high quality, comfortable, all while remaining affordable. This boot fit all of those needs! The fit is perfect the style is remarkable, and so very comfortable. I wore them during a 19 hour drive just a day after receiving them and I was never uncomfortable for a moment! They are truly perfect! Granted I got a last chance boot so it was way cheaper than full price, but I am a teacher for a pretty low paying district and having that option was great. I will be buying another pair eventually!

Dragon boot in rust

Great boot. Worth the money especially if you want a quality boot for daily use. They come out they box a little squeaky but put some powder in there and your good to go. I’m def going to buy another pair in another color.
