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

    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.

    Classic, comfortable and stylish

    These shoes are wonderfully comfortable out of the box, and bold in the red paisley fabric weave. Their design evokes the classic canvas flat-footed sneaker we all knew growing up (and probably owned at some point) but is given a bold reimagining in several ways: The red paisley pattern is not a print, but woven into the fabric. All of the gold accents in the pattern are stitched with metallic threads, allowing the gold to assert its presence along with the deep red, green, and blue hues of the paisley pattern. Taft’s quality construction in dress shoes is wonderfully translated to the design language of sneakers: as such, they have a weight to them that can seem surprising for a pair of sneakers, but the weight is not unpleasant and it doesn’t translate to feeling heavy underfoot. Break-in period was minimal for me; I was acclimated to the shoes within a couple of hours after wearing. In addition to the standard shoe pouches and paint-stirrer style horn, these sneakers come with an extra pair of waxed laces. The ones shipped on the shoe is a soft cream white, while the extra pair is a mellow tan. While I haven’t swapped laces yet, I suspect the tan laces would work well for pairing with khakis, or situations where you might choose a pair of brown/tan dress shoes over a black pair. The lavender-scented sole is an understated touch, signifying there’s something a little different about this sneaker compared to similarly-styled ones. Even after a few days of walking around and getting the soles dirty, the lavender scent comes through without ever getting close to being overpowering. If you have only purchased Taft’s dress shoes and boots, loved the quality but were unsure if their sneakers would be worth the purchase—as I admittedly had been—allow me to put those worries to rest. The Taft Sneaker has quickly become my preferred shoe for leisure, work, or when I’m out and about.
