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

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.
STACKED LEATHER SOLE
Stacked leather sole with rubber injections offer durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION

The TAFT Quality Promise

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.

FAQ

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.

Great boots, great service

Beautiful boots, super comfortable. Normally wear a size 10.5 in sneakers so I figured a 10 would work, but it was huge. The exchange was quick and painless. Great company, will buy again as soon as I can afford it.

Nice Boot

Very nice boot! They are well made with quality materials. Very comfortable right out of the box. I usually wear an 11.5, but I ordered 1/2 size down as the website suggested and the 11 fits perfect.

Gorgeous Boot

Once again, Taft comes through! My Taft collection is growing nicely and the Hiro Boot is a welcome addition! Great craftsmanship and I beautiful boot. I get complements all the time. The leathers seems to break in well; my foot is wide, but these boots seem to fit well out of the box.
