Description

Introducing the Drake Chelsea Boot. A fresh spin on our best-selling Dragon Boot. Rain or shine, our Drake has you covered. The Drake features a waxed commander suede leather and rubber sole for extra durability. *Please note, due to the roughout suede fabric, there will be variance in color*

Features a 'roughout suede', literally meaning the rough part of the leather is on the outside of the boot. Right out of the box, you'll see beautiful wear. The marks and wear were designed purposefully to give these boots a more worn-in and rugged effect. The more you wear them, the more beautiful and unique they become.

Really disappointed overall

So I actually got these as a Christmas gift in 2020. This would have been my third or fourth pair of Tafts at the time. I have about 8 pairs now.

When I opened them, I was almost immediately disappointed. I wanted a distressed look, but this was felt like a Quality control missed boot. The suede between the two boots was like looking at two different pair of boots. But nonetheless, I wore them around the house to get a feel for them. After further looking at them, I just could not stop thinking about the way they looked. Like other comments stated, I first could not get over the giant stripe down the center. Idk what this is but it doesn't look good. And it doesn't go away. On the bottom, the rubber had bubbled. On the top elastic seam, the sewn seam started coming unraveled. This is all before I even wore them outside. I contacted customer service, and was honest. I wore them around the house to break them in, and was not able to return them at that point. I decided ok, let's see what they can do at least. They were very nice and offered a voucher for a future purchase.

I decided to wait on this review, because I wanted to wear them out and see how they held up. Overall, the suede became so much worse on the one boot. These state they are water resistant, but that isn't the case. I would not recommend wearing these out in heavy snow or rain, as the suede especially on the one boot begin to noticeable damage. I actually decided to spray them after about three months…

Incredibly Comfortable and Eye-Catching

I got a pair of brown Drake boots for Christmas. I've been wearing them all the time for the last six months--they took a while to break in, but once I did they became the most comfortable pair of shoes I own. I get compliments from strangers all the time! This is my third pair of shoes from Taft, and they definitely won't be the last!
