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!
The shoe I want is sold out... what should I do?
We are working hard to manage our inventory and make sure we can have your size available. We will try and bring back older styles as often as possible. Be sure to sign up for the Back-in-Stock notifications on the product page to be the first to know when a shoe is back in stock.
How long will it take to receive my order?
Once your order is placed, we will ship within 24 (unless it is a pre-order). Once shipped, the order will arrive in 2-5 days, depending on your location.
If you are pre-ordering, the expected shipping date will be in the product description.
Free Returns are offered within the contiguous United States on all shoe purchases, unless otherwise noted on certain products (namely seconds). Return requests must be made within 14 days of the date you receive your shoes. Requests after this point will be denied.
Returns on pre-orders (custom production) are accepted, but will be returned for store credit only. No refunds will be offered.
Shipping for Exchanges or Returns is free of charge within the contiguous United States for one return or exchange per order. If a second exchange or return is requested, the cost of the second shipping will be covered by the customer.

HIGHEST QUALITY MATERIALS
Purchased the Gladiator boot about a week ago. Initial reaction is pleased. Lovely boot and the quality seems solid. Looking forward to breaking them in.
comfortable, well designed
We opt for a regular shoe ... but they were beautiful ... thus is my third pair I’ve bought for a friend ... he loves them all ... I’ll be buying more... they are awesome... thanks
The Gladiator in Cognac
This is an awesome boot. Very stylish, comfortable, and high quality!!
Your boots will not look like the pictures.
Just received my pair and while the same style, they do not look like the shoes in the pictures and definitely not like the video above. The lighting in the pictures gives the impression that the shoes are way darker and way more contextualized than they really are. Taft really needs to change these pictures, and especially the video, to be more representative of what you will really get. If you are buying, make sure to look at the actual photos of other purchasers in the reviews. Those are more accurate, but even those are highly variable. I would say that the photo of the boots by Carlos R. are the closest to the boots I received. 1. My shoes are no way near as shiny - they are the same dull grainy texture across the entire boot. 2. The stain of the boots in the pictures is way nicer, with the darkness around the stitching, and an almost two-tone look as your eyes move from the laces to the tip of the boot. The boots in the video are beautiful. My boots are very mono- colored, resembling the top grainy portion of the boot all around. I was told that the boots in the pictures and video were stained differently and polished. 3. On one shoe the grain on the tip is noticeably different (more pebbled) than the other. While I get that these are "hand-made" I would like both to look the same. 4. Like the previous reviewer, the tips are narrower and not as flat than what is shown in the pictures/video. Look, I love Taft designs and will still order from them.. But they are still working through quality and variation issues, which is a shame. The customer service is fantastic, but it becomes aggravating to have to return shoes due to quality issues, especially when you bought them purposely to wear to a specific event.
