Nice boot, narrow fit
I have the Rome shoe in a size 9 and it fits perfectly. I'm a size 10.5 in Nike and Vans, but prefer dress shoes to fit a bit snug. Only took a few wears for it to break in the Rome shoes. Just ordered these boots (also in a size 9 anticipating Taft sizes to match across their styles) and when I tried them on inside I could tell they were a more narrow fit than the Rome. They're borderline snug and uncomfortable, so I decided to wear them around the house for a day before thinking they'd start to break in. Had a family event this weekend I'd purchased them for so I chose to wear them outside and now after several days I'm afraid I might have needed a larger size in this boot. They're so fresh and I really hope it breaks in more or else they were an expensive mistake.
These are crazy good. Bottom line. The perfect mix of comfort and rugged style.
Loving my Dragon 2.0s
I could not be happier with these boots. After a couple of weeks with the new Dragon 2.0s,these may be the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, and they look even better in person than in pics. They have a really strong feel to them and the soles have great grip from the start. I wasn't sure about the changes they made to the sole color, but they look fantastic in person. And the embossed texture is nice in person as well. I've always been a sneakers and flip flops kind of guy, but Taft has made me a convert to nicer shoes. As far as fit, I'm a 10 to 10.5 in sneakers and a 9 in the Taft Jack Boots (which are snug, but not tight), but I got a 10 in the Dragons based on a recommendation from Taft customer service and they fit perfectly (I'm wearing "Darn Tough" cushion boot socks, which are moderate thickness). There was a slight heel slip for the first couple of days, but it totally went away after they broke in a little, which is how the right fit is supposed to be, from what I've been reading online.
Love at First Sight
The moment I opened the box I fell in love with these boots. They look even better in person -- and the quality is evident almost immediately. 2 for 2 with Taft boots!
So I’ve been wearing the Dragon Boot for about 3 months and it has lived up to all expectations. I’ve worn these in snow, sleet, rain, freezing weather and they have been great. Follow their guidance on fit. It was spot on for me. So far so good and I hope they can last for years to come.
