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

Meet the Kennedy. Our favorite thing about this shoe is the versatility. Wear it with slacks, wear it with jeans, wear it to work or a dinner party. The Kennedy will quickly become your new go-to. This is a captoe lace-up with Blake construction. It has a reinforced stacked leather sole with rubber inserts for extra durability. The wool flannel is made in Italy and then shipped to our factory in Spain. When we initially previewed the shoe it became a fast favorite and we couldn't be happier to finally have it available. 

  • Wool Flannel from Italy
  • 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 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.
Do not order your sneaker size. Please size down 0.5 - 1 US number.
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.

Comfortable & versatile

My second pair of Taft shoes...they are a bit tighter than the Saint boots, but still very comfortable. These shoes literally go with everything (except shorts) - I've already received tons of compliments. Highly recommend.

Amazing

Great fit and style. I wore to a wedding with a blue suit and they had the right amount of POP. I received several compliments on them. Highly recommend!

Unique, Beautiful, Comfortable

These were my 5th pair of Tafts and what more can I say? They are as beautiful as they are comfortable. Such a unique pair. My usual shoe size is 11-11.5 and most Tafts fit me well in US size 11 (including these). I get compliments on them all the time as with all my other Taft pairs. Customer service (if ever need to reach out) is always impeccable. You cannot go wrong with Taft.

Beautiful shoe, good build quality. Runs too narrow for me

This is the 2nd pair of Taft shoes I've tried as I love the unique style. Both have been far too narrow for my foot and uncomfortable to the point where the shoes had to be returned or given away. I don't typically wear wide shoes, but boarder on the edge of slightly wide. Not sure if the trouble with the width is due to having to size down since Taft runs a bit long, but this wasn't the shoe for me. I'll definitely revisit the shoes if/when Taft starts offering different widths.

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