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 Viking Boot in Brown, our most anticipated release of the season.  This is our most heavy duty boot, featuring a Vibram combat sole, and Italian full-grain leather.  After countless requests for a cold-weather friendly boot, we've produced a boot that can stand up to winter.  Durable, stylish, and our Founder's all-time favorite.

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.

Far too small, sizing seems off

After having a negative experience with my Dragon boots having too narrow a toebox, I hoped that the Viking would be sized better for me. I've never worn larger than a size 14 of any shoe in my life, but since I wanted to be sure I wouldn't be cramped in these I ordered both a 14 and a 15 (the largest size Taft makes). That's despite Taft's advice saying to order a size down. When they arrived, the first thing I did was try on the 15s. Despite them being a size up from my normal shoe size, they felt too snug from the moment I put them on. Not just in the toebox, which was still too small for me, but the entire shoe. After following the bad and ultimately unsuccessful advice on my Dragons to try to wear them in and stretch them to fit, I decided to return the Vikings rather than being stuck with more expensive shoes that just don't fit. The boots are gorgeous and the craftsmanship seems really solid. What a shame that Taft refuses to make any boots that fit me. I don't have wide feet, but I don't have super narrow toes which is all Taft seems to cater to. In either case though, it seems like the sizing on the Viking is way off from any other shoe or boot I've ever tried on.

Great Shoe

I've had this shoe for a year now and it barely looks worn. I live in the North-East U.S. and wear it year round. With the use of wax, a shoe brush, and shoe trees, they're just as comfortable and sharp as they ever were. Would (and probably will eventually) buy again.

Viking in Brown.

Love the shoes. Had to exchange to a bigger size to wear with thicker wool socks but the fit, the style, and the quality are all top notch.

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