Skeptical. Surprised. and supremely satisfied

Shoe Junkie. I have more than I can wear, and thankfully a son who is the same size! So he turns me on to a shoe company that he was impressed with- Taft. That was 2 months ago- I got the Holt. Initially I was concerned. The finish was not perfect but good. Lana in customer service called me immediately and took time to solve those issues and gave me options. I also felt the leather was thin in the ankle. But- The construction is perfect. Strong at proper points and thin in areas for wear without irritating the wearer. These are now my go to shoes. Amazing in every way, fit and function. I refuse to not have a pair in my closet now. And since I’ve added Eden the sneaker to the rotation. It’s making impressions too. Get this shoe. You won’t regret it. It may be the best shoe all around I’ve owned.

My second pair from Taft.

Every time I purchase something from Taft, the entire process works flawlessly. From searching on their website, to purchase and to delivery time. This is my second pair from Taft, and I always receive compliments on both pairs.

How To Measure

For fail proof measure please take the time to measure your foot.
  1. Put a piece of paper on the ground next to a wall
  2. 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)
  3. With a ruler, measure the distance from the wall to the mark on the paper (indicating the longest part of your foot)
  4. 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
