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 Honey, 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.  Durable, stylish, and our Founder's all-time favorite.


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.
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.


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 We are happy to help!


The shoe I want is sold out... what should I do?
We are working hard to manage our inventory and make sure we can have your size available. We will try and bring back older styles as often as possible. Be sure to sign up for the Back-in-Stock notifications on the product page to be the first to know when a shoe is back in stock.


How long will it take to receive my order?
Once your order is placed, we will ship within 24 (unless it is a pre-order). Once shipped, the order will arrive in 4-7 days, depending on your location.

If you are pre-ordering, the expected shipping date will be in the product description.

Great boots!

These boots are amazing! Well constructed and top quality leather. Looks good with any jeans. Definitely becomes center of attraction with friends and strangers that appreciate style. I normally wear a size 9 in sneakers and size 8 in dress shoes and boots. These boots were a bit snug at first but the leather eventually softened up a bit after a few times of wearing. They are my favorite casual boots for cold weather as the color is versatile for most outfits. Taft’s good customer service just adds to the experience.

Great customer service

Unfortunately, Taft sent me the wrong size first, and I couldn't send the boots back because they were forwarded outside of US. Nevertheless, Taft made a full refund and even discount for a new pair! Quality of workmanship and materials is perfect. Can't wait to start wearing them!

After the fourth time we worked out a good deal

Let me start out by saying that I very much enjoy the boots in the winter months, however attaining the boots was a near epic and agonizing journey. I decided that I would buy the boots during the black Friday sale. I was so excited to get them after arriving home from my in-laws place after Thanksgiving, but they weren't shipped on time. The boots finally came in over a week late, with an apology email and $50 off the next pair of shoes. The first pair of boots that arrived were a size too small (despite seeking sizing help from a Taft associate); I sent the boots back for one size larger. The second boots arrived and were super comfortable, but they came with this weird raised pimple like imperfection right on the toe of the boot with a little scratch right next to it. When I contacted Customer Service they offered me $25 off the boots to keep them. I decided to send them back in for a new pair and had to pay for the shipping. The third pair came with terrible blotching on the leather. These boots looked terrible! So I sent them back and asked for another pair. At this point Taft gave me $75 off my next purchase. The fourth pair that I received was the exact same pair that I had received the second time with the pimple and scratch. I was getting upset by this point because I was trying to buy a $300 pair of boots that looked in passable condition, but Taft was having a hard time making that happen. At this point it was January 26 and I tried to buy the boots on Black Friday. Then Lana from Customer Service allowed me to combine the discounts from the late shipping and the $75 for the trouble with the first three pairs of shoes, and took $100 off the cost of the pimple shoes. In my mind this made me feel like I was being treated fairly. I like the boots, but I am not sure about the Quality Control measures at Taft. Customer service staff worked hard to make the problem right.

Where Do I Start

These boots are THE BEST! I love to wear them casually, and are plenty comfortable for long days on your feet. Stylish, comfortable, great color, and nice fit all packed into one. One of my boots the leather tongue was a little still at first but otherwise they are super quick to break in and are all around comfortable. Really enjoying this color as well. PLEASE BRING BACK THE BEIGE VIKING BOOTS SO I CAN BUY THEM *crying face*
