    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

    We are proud of our craft. Each shoe is handmade using the highest quality materials, sourced directly from our factory in Europe.
    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.
    FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
    We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high quality leathers makes 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.
    STACKED LEATHER SOLE
    Stacked leather sole with rubber injections offer 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.

      Handmade in Southern Spain by experienced artisans, every pair is made with precision, patience and decades of experience. We are advocates of ethical fashion.

      Love them!

      Exceeded expectations and they are incredibly comfortable. I was concerned with the durability of the suede... After treating the boots and buying a suede brush, I've worn the boots heavily for a few months and there have been no issues!

      Comfortable boots, amazing quality!

      Day 1: These boots are kinda comfy. Day 2: Ok, I can see why Kory made such a big deal about comfort. Day 3: OMG THESE ARE SO SOFT!. These boots were comfortable from the first time that I put them on, but as soon as they were worn in a bit more, they transformed into a whooole new level of comfort! The suede is the perfect shade and shape to wear casually or with a more elevated outfit. They've become my go-to boot in the evening, anytime I go out, but also a strong contender in the daytime with more business casual outfits. The suede is slightly darker than the studio photos on the product page (in a good way) so they serve perfectly as a darker neutral alternative without going straight to brown or black. This level of versatility is exactly what I needed. The fit on these is absolutely perfect. I wear a 42 in Kennedy and a 42 in the Outback was just right. It's also worth mentioning that, unlike the Jude, because of the rounded Outback toe, the fitment is much more true to size, with less room to shift and slide. This is important as Chelsea boots don't have laces or the ability to adjust the fit. Additionally, the opening above your ankle is slightly more narrow than the Jude which I love and think looks better with skinnier pants. The Outback is a must have in every man's wardrobe and I would strongly recommend them!

      Classy boot!

      The boot is above par for the price point! This is my second pair of Taft boots and I will be buying another I have my eye on. I'm getting compliments and they are really comfortable.

      Wish they were wider

      Bought a pair of outback boots from Taft . Good communications(email) with tracking info,etc. Tried them on and they were too narrow for me. I wish they'd fit; nice looking boot. Returned them,only waiting for account credit. Would definitely order again if they tool up for a wider foot.

      Outback boot

      Guys. I don't normally do reviews, but, I felt it was important you know this. I love men's fashion, shoes especially. However, most nice shoes hurt to wear, I deal with it anyway. I have knee and hip problems as a result of my vocation and running injuries. I'm an HVAC contractor that spends most of his time in dirty jeans and work boots and a sweatshirt. I put these shoes on with some dress socks and immediately looked at my wife and said "oh my gosh!" These shoes are the most comfortable dress shoe/boot I own. I'm not sure my running shoes are even this comfortable. So thanks, and well done. Oh, I'm size 12, I ordered size 12, fit is perfect. It'd be cool to see these in a semi square toe. I will definitely be ordering shoes from you again...I've got a couple on my wishlist. Take care.
