Meet The Irwin Boot in Cognac. This is a style we have been developing for quite some time and have finally nailed the pattern. We first previewed this boot on social media, not sure what the response would be...and since then, we have been hit hard with inbox messages asking about this style. It's finally coming. This boot can be worn casually with jeans or dressed up with a suit...either way, you will get compliments.

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

Unique Style. Highest Quality Materials.
Handmade in Europe.
Sold direct to you, without retail markups.
Free US Shipping & Returns
We are proud of our craft. Each shoe is handmade using the highest quality materials, sourced directly from our factory in Europe.
SOFT CALFSKIN LINING
All of our shoes are fully-lined with soft calfskin leather, which means ultimate comfort. Most companies will only partially line their shoes, but we go the extra mile because it means a more comfortable shoe and less break-in time.
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high quality leathers makes our shoes durable and comfortable. We partner with the best mills and tanneries in the world to produce bold styles using the most unique leathers in the world.
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.
DAINITE RUBBER SOLE
Dainite makes the most renowned rubber sole for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. The best boots in the world are often made with a Dainite sole and we knew it was the right choice for this style.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.

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.

If you have any specific questions, you can email us at support@taftclothing.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.

BOLD!

This is my 9th pair of Tafts and probably the most unique! I knocked a star off for two reasons: 1 - my order didn't come with extra laces and a shoehorn like all my others, but I emailed Taft support and they sent them out right away and apologized for the oversight; 2 - the studs at the top make the lacing process a little more difficult - but this is a minor complaint outweighed by the texture and style of these awesome boots!

Try: "jack boot", leather, size 9, suede...
