Is a clean look and like the waterproof suede as a protection against the lighter color
These shoes are amazing. Bought these as a "finished first year of law school" gift and they did not disappoint. Had them for about a month now. The color is accurate to the picture and very stylish. A lot of Taft's shoes strike a balance between dressy and rugged. I would say - looks-wise - these are more dressy, but build-wise these are more rugged anc can definitely stand-up to the rain and the elements. They go equally well with a black jeans, a v-neck, and a bomber jacket as they do with blue chinos, a white oxford, and a blazer. The dressiness of these can be a bit tricky; the outfit has to be on point or these can look a tad too formal. T-shirt and jeans are fine, but they need to fit the boot. On fit - these are VERY slim, I would say slimmer than the Dragon or the Jack boots. Pay careful attention to the Taft sizing recommendations, especially those with wide feet (like me). On quality control - other reviews have pointed to a weal running up the center of the boot. It was there when the boots arrived, but it's faded with every use for me. I don't think it's super noticeable either, at least with this colorway. Thanks for a great experience, Taft! and for the great environmental practices and supporting models and communities of color in all your promotions. Great company from the ethics to the shoes.
One of the best boots I own! (Next to my other Tafts). Super comfortable and super stylish.
