The Taft Story

We make beautiful shoes and only sell them directly to you. With Taft, you get the highest quality possible without paying a premium.

The Source

Southern Spain

We searched for the best shoe factories in the world and found them in Spain. Our factory has a long history of producing some of the best footwear in Europe. With access to the highest quality raw materials and best artisans in the world, there is no better place to make shoes.

The Makers

Our craftsmen were born into shoe-making families and have been doing this their whole lives. This is their art and they love what they do. Our factory team is family.

The Quality

We select only the best leathers, textiles, and raw materials available in Europe. We never cut corners on quality.


The Details

All of our shoes are handmade in Spain using the best materials we can find.


Transparent Cost

There are no middlemen between you and Taft. That means no unnecessary price hikes, no retailers demanding a higher price tag, and no distributors needing their cut. We sell our shoes directly to you, which means you get beautiful shoes at beautiful prices.


The Founders

We were married in 2011 and have two beautiful children together. We stay up too late, spend our free time talking shoes, and think our kids are the coolest people on the planet. We founded Taft in 2013 out of our tiny 2-bedroom apartment. Taft was born out of a mutual love for well-designed and well-made products. We're meticulous in our work, intentional in our designs, and obsessive over what makes the cut. As Taft continues to grow, our vision for the brand remains the same - we believe in making beautiful shoes at beautiful prices and offering the best service and value possible. Thanks for following along, we're so glad you're here.
