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 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 shoes are design to match standard US dress shoe sizes. However, to ensure the perfect fit, please make sure:
    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 down for Taft boots and shoes.
    When ordering TAFT sneakers, if you wear a half size, please size up. Our sneakers run a little small.
    In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.

    The TAFT Quality Promise

    Beautiful Shoes. Beautiful Prices.

    Handmade in Europe by experienced artisans, every pair is made with precision, patience and decades of experience. We are advocates of ethical fashion.

    In a world of poorly made shoes, TAFT products are built to last. Every pair is hand-cut and Blake-stitched using vegetable-tanned leathers from top European tanneries and mills. Your shoes will look beautiful right out of the box, and for years to come.

    By selling exclusively online, we save our customers an average of $200 a pair. You can compare the quality of our shoes to $500 shoes you’d find sitting on the shelves at big box stores. From the beginning, we’ve wanted nothing more than to offer high quality at a lower price.

    FAQ

    What is my Taft shoe size?
    Our shoes are made true to size. If you typically wear a size 9, you can order a size 9 in Taft shoes.

    We only offer whole sizes...if you typically wear a half-size, we strongly recommend that you size down. For example, if you wear a size 10.5, we recommend that you size down to a 10.

    Great Fit

    I get compliments every day i wear these boots. The fit was a little big so I suggest going half size down if you are having trouble deciding. The materials and feels of the shoe are top quality and are looking like they are going to last along time.

    Perfect Spring Boot

    These boots, like most of Taft’s boots are bold in a sophisticated way. I’ve only worn them out a handful of times, but each time I lace them up I get at least one compliment. I believe these are my 8th boot purchase from Taft and they keep getting better and better. The sole on these boots is excellent, they’re so comfortable.

    Quality shoes at a bargain price

    I selected these shoes because I wanted a unique addition to my collection, and they didn't disappoint! Also, special shoutout to Taft's customer service for correcting my shipping address quickly when Apple Wallet gave them an old one rather than my current residence. All in all, a good experience and I'll definitely shop here again.

    He LOVES them

    I bought the Jaro Boot for my boyfriend as one of his gifts. He absolutely LOVES them. I had remorse about the color I chose, I was really loving a few of the other "creative" designs but he really needed something that was versatile in both color and style. The shoe horn provided was absolutely great and he did need to use it. The fit is perfect and "true to size" and the quality is second to none. I will absolutely be buying more for him in different styles/patterns/colors.
