How to 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
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high-quality leathers make our sneakers 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.
FINISHED 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.
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.
TAFT CUSTOM SOLE
We are talking about the highest quality, most durable rubber sole we could produce. This sole will last and will feel good for a long time.
SIDE-STITCHED
Our shoes feature Strobel-stitched construction for flexibility, comfort, and durability. You will notice a big difference from normal, cemented shoes to a stitched pair of TAFT footwear. These shoes will last longer, will feel more comfortable, and won't fall apart.
Sizing Guide
Our TAFT sneakers were designed to be consistent with our boot and dress shoes sizing.
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 up for TAFT sneakers.
In general, most people will wear the same size in our new sneakers as they did in our previous styles. If your TAFTs are really tight on you, we suggest sizing up in our sneakers.

Great shoes

Shoes look great - have received several compliments. Definitely a seasonal shoe, but they can look great with just about anything. Once you break them in, they're super comfortable.

Happy these came back!

I was bummed when Stripes went out of stock -- even started looking on the resale sites! -- so of course I pounced when to my surprise it came back. They look fantastic, easy to dress up or down. The colors are a lot more versatile than one might think, and i can make them work with a lot of my wardrobe.

Comfortable, Gorgeous...just not my style

These shoes were pretty far outside the usual sneaker style shoes I wear, but I was drawn to the stripe pattern and bought a pair. They were *super* comfortable and the striping was predictably gorgeous. However, they felt a bit too large for me. And I don't mean large as in I didn't get the right size, the fit was perfect. It just seemed like they were taller and wider than I prefer sneakers to be. Now that I've tried these type of sneakers, I've been seeing people wearing similar styled ones all over the place, so if you're one of those people mocking me, I'm sure you'd love these shoes. Fortunately, the return process was a complete breeze - without doubt one of the best I've ever used. The form online for starting a return is simple and intuitive. I printed a prepaid return label they generated, packed everything in the original box, and dropped it off at Fedex. Less than 20 minutes later, I got an email with the full refund as a store credit discount code. ...a code I *might* have just used on the new Paris shoes I've been eyeing ever since they were announced.

Try: "jack boot", leather, size 9, suede...
