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

Kudu Leather is one of our favorite articles and is unfortunately rarely used for sneakers due to its high cost. The Greater Kudu leather comes from Southern Africa and the skins are tanned in the UK, utilizing the natural oils and waxes to enhance the natural character of the hide rather than trying to hide the blemishes, scars, and marks that make this leather so special. Each pair will be different, with natural scars and irregularities. Kudu is one of the strongest and softest leathers, making kudu supreme for footwear because of its instant comfort and durability over time.

Product Details
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.
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.
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.
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 with rubber injections offers durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
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.

kudu sets it apart

The bottoms are thick, no doubt the comfort is supreme. I think it looks a bit chunkier than it could, slimmer sole might suit this shoe nicely. Very pleased with this purchase, they get compliments. Kudu sets it apart.

Simplicity at its best

Any Taft shoe or boot automatically becomes the favorite & you find yourself neglecting all other brands. You can’t go wrong with Taft.

Kicking It!

This is my second pair of sneaker from Taft and the shoes are excellent.The liner feel luxurious and the Kudu leather has a unique character and give each own detail of the shoes.I'd say my favorite aspect of these shoes is the design and the quality of the leather.Stylish and comfortable.I'd definitely recommend.

Awesome pair of shoes

I ordered these during the Black Friday sale, and even though they weren't my first choice (the white ones were out of my size), I'm actually really glad it worked out this way. The color of the shoes is perfect, and the quality is high, just like with other Taft footwear. I haven't owned anything made from kudu leather, but I think it works really well on these sneakers and gives it a unique look while not necessarily being a "statement" piece. By the way, Taft's customer service is awesome! Might be some of the best I've ever dealt with. If you're eyeballing these, buy with confidence.
