We design with boldness in mind to ensure that all our products are as unique and stylish as you. You will not find shoes like this anywhere else.
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high-quality leathers make our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with some of the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold and unique styles.
Every product is hand made by a generational shoemaker in Spain or Portugal. Every piece of leather is painted and stained by hand to give a beautiful finish that is unique to each shoe. The entire process of making a TAFT item is guided by human touch, allowing us to use only the best sections of the leather.
These were my first pair of nicer dress shoes. I live in the PNW where it rains often. So the idea that these are waterproof stood out. I havnt rant my pair through any significant water or rain but i was a bit disappointed when I saw the leather absorb water the few times I accidentally dropped droplets of water onto them after washing my hands. Thankfully, it dried and didnt leave a water stain. I suppose I was expecting water to wick away from the leather, much like it would if they were sprayed with a water and stain repellant. I chose these because of their versatility for work and would have perhaps gone with a shoe I preferred the look of more, had I known how the leather performed. Overall, they’re a comfy set of dress shoes. Nothing overall wrong with them. However, I just question the waterproof capabilities of the leather versus doing regular maintenance on your leather shoes that should provide some level of waterproofing as well.
