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 Russell in Eden. We have been working on a loafer for a couple of years and never felt like we nailed it. Now we do! We took our traditional TAFT design aesthetic and applied it to a classic tassel loafer. Comfortable, bold, well-made, and will definitely be a go-to shoe in your closet. This shoe is narrow. If you typically wear a half size in dress shoes, size up.

  • Cotton jacquard weave upper
  • Standard D width
  • Handcrafted in Spain
  • Blake Construction (resoleable)
Product Details
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 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.
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.
STACKED LEATHER SOLE
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.
BLAKE-STITCHED
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.
Sizing Guide
All TAFT boots and shoes are designed to match standard US dress shoe sizes. In general this particular style runs small, we suggest using our “Find my size” feature.
All our shoes are standard D width.
If you are unsure of your size, check out our size guide below or chat / email us.

Most Beautiful Loafers on the Planet.

I’m not a loader fan. Wasn’t a loafer fan. But now I am proud to say I am; and proud to show these babies off whenever I can. They shimmer in the sunlight and they pick up on shadows and project the eye catching pattern throughout the room and command the attention of anyone nearby. Deceivingly comfortable also, no compromise whatsoever.
