Introducing the Drake Chelsea Boot. A fresh spin on our best selling Dragon Boot. Rain or shine, our Drake has you covered. Built to withstand the toughest conditions, the Drake features a waxed commander suede leather and rubber sole for extra durability and water resistance.

Features a 'roughout suede', literally meaning the rough part of the leather is on the outside of the boot. Right out of the box, you'll see a beautiful wear. The marks and wear were designed purposefully to give these boots a more worn-in and rugged effect. The more you wear them, the more beautiful and unique they become.

Great

Is a clean look and like the waterproof suede as a protection against the lighter color

Beautiful, dressy, built to last, good grip

These shoes are amazing. Bought these as a "finished first year of law school" gift and they did not disappoint. Had them for about a month now. The color is accurate to the picture and very stylish. A lot of Taft's shoes strike a balance between dressy and rugged. I would say - looks-wise - these are more dressy, but build-wise these are more rugged anc can definitely stand-up to the rain and the elements. They go equally well with a black jeans, a v-neck, and a bomber jacket as they do with blue chinos, a white oxford, and a blazer. The dressiness of these can be a bit tricky; the outfit has to be on point or these can look a tad too formal. T-shirt and jeans are fine, but they need to fit the boot.On fit - these are VERY slim, I would say slimmer than the Dragon or the Jack boots. Pay careful attention to the Taft sizing recommendations, especially those with wide feet (like me).On quality control - other reviews have pointed to a weal running up the center of the boot. It was there when the boots arrived, but it's faded with every use for me. I don't think it's super noticeable either, at least with this colorway.Thanks for a great experience, Taft! and for the great environmental practices and supporting models and communities of color in all your promotions. Great company from the ethics to the shoes.

How To Measure

For fail proof measure please take the time to measure your foot.
  1. Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  2. 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)
  3. With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  4. 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
All Taft shoes are designed 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.
In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.
