Beautiful Shoes. Beautiful Prices.
Handmade in Southern Spain 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 vegatable-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 email@example.com. We are happy to help!

Great boot, just wasn’t keen on the color. Exchanged for midnight.
Not for me
Very nice boots, but the last Taft uses doesn't work for my feet. I normally wear a size 10 1/2 D and based on sizing recommendations, bought a 10. They are tight through the ball of the foot. I figured with the leather breaking in that would be fine. What doesn't work for me is how loose they are through the heel. I thought they might be fine, but the leather there also relaxed and now I have way too much movement. I am also a heavy guy, and not having a shank in the sole there is already a crease in the insole right in front of the heel as the leather sags over the edge. I love the way these look and get great compliments, but they aren't for me.
Hey G.H., Thanks for your feedback. I totally hear you on the last...unfortunately, everyone's feet are different and sometimes the last doesn't jive with some of the subtle fit differences that can vary across feet. In the ball of your foot, that should relax and get a bit better for you. The nice thing about suede is that it is probably the most giving and malleable type of leather there is, which should help. I did want to make sure to clarify your point about the shank...there IS a shank in these boots. It is a really great, forgiving wooden shank from Germany that I personally like a lot (more than a steel or metal shank). Would you mind sending pictures of the crease that is developing please? Curious to see what you mean by that. The insole is made with memory foam and then there is an extra little pad that is just in the heel...I think what you are referring to is the leather insole just dipping down off of that comfort pad in the heel. Either way, would love to see pictures. Please send them to me at kory at taftclothing.com and I will help you out. Thanks again for the honest, helpful feedback. -Kory
