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

Meet The Dragon 2.0 in Forest. We took all the magic of the original Dragon and coupled it with some thoughtful and unique upgrades. We switched over to a sleek, strong nylon pull tab that your pants can easily slip over without getting caught. The 2.0s feature a Ridgeway sole to be even more flexible and comfortable from the first wear and even sturdier in wet conditions. We left the welt and heel stack natural to provide a bit of contrast. In true TAFT fashion, we added a heavy texture to the Stead Waxed Commander leather to make this boot stand out while keeping the boot fully waterproof and maintaining its crazy durability. 

  • Goodyear Welt Construction
  • Waxed Commander Suede from C.F. Stead 
  • Waxed Laces
  • Ridgeway Sole
  • Fully Leather-Lined
  • Handmade in Portugal

All boots ship with an extra pair of laces, travel bags, and a shoe horn. 

Product Details
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.
DAINITE RUBBER SOLE
Dainite makes the most renowned rubber sole for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. The best boots in the world are often made with a Dainite sole and we knew it was the right choice for this style.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.
Sizing Guide
All Taft shoes are design 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.
Do not order your sneaker size. Please size down 0.5 - 1 US number.
In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.

The TAFT Quality Promise

Beautiful Shoes. Beautiful Prices.

Handmade in Europe 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 vegetable-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.

Some welcomed improvements

The original Dragon boot was one of my favorites, though not perfect it certainly had style, support, and stood out amongst a sea of Red Wings. The 2.0 fixed some of the issues and added yet another level of unique design with the leather texture. Let’s face it, if you’re buying green boots, you’re not afraid of standing out a bit. The sole is also a nice upgrade and offers much more traction on slippery surfaces. The pull tab now fits around your finger (the old one was a bit small) which makes putting them on easy. All in all if you’re looking for something cool and different these are a solid choice.

Great as always!

This is the second pair of Taft boots I own and they’re great as always! They fit perfectly and are just the right amount of warmth for the Chicago fall/spring/winter(not too long outside).

Amazing

These boots are incredible. When they arrived, there were a few scuff marks on the left shoe, which did annoy me at first. But as I wore them, more appeared. Normal wear and tear, really. They are a nice dark green that can appear black at times in dim lighting. They're very comfortable and well made. The sole is quite thick which gives some extra height, and they are a fairly heavy--but nothing uncomfortable. I will definitely buy another pair of Taft boots soon.

Try: "jack boot", leather, size 9, suede...
