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.

    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.

    If you have any specific questions, you can email us at support@taftclothing.com. We are happy to help!

    Sneaker in Pony

    These might be my favorite pair of Taft shoes which is really say something. The pattern and texture are so wild, but are really offset by the simple silhouette which makes them surprisingly versatile. These are sure to get you noticed. Asking myself right now if I need a spare pair

    Extremely unique, mostly comfortable

    The sneakers are like none I've had before. While the spotted pattern is visually interesting, the fur-like texture is what stands out the most. Looks and feel are positives. Got a compliment on the first day I wore them. The comfort is mostly there except the insoles feel too narrow. I have standard D width feet but low arches so that may be a factor. But even so, the right insole was less comfortable than the left and took longer to break in. I think because they weren't cut perfectly symmetrical. The fit is a bit loose even with thick socks. I wear 10.5 usually and the sneaker sizing suggested going up instead of down like with the boots and shoes. I think I'll go down instead in the future. My shipment did not come with a shoe horn but a customer service rep was excellent about sending me the missing shoe horn for no extra charge.
