The Jack Boot in Black

Regular price $ 250.00

Meet the Jack Boot in Black. This boot has quickly become a Taft signature. The upper eyelets are reinforced with interior metal for added durability. The calfskin inner-lining adds support and structure to the 100% wool upper. The sleek, decorative pull tab helps keep the silhouette minimal and clean. The sole unit is an extralight rubber lug sole for added grip and comfort. The Jack boot is incredibly versatile, it pairs as well with formal attire as it does with casual wear. It is easily re-solable which means it will be a classic staple in your wardrobe for years to come. We spared no expense in the making of this boot and the superior comfort and quality is apparent from the moment you slip them on.

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.
RUBBER COMMANDO SOLE
If you are going for comfort, you should consider our Commando Sole. Very lightweight, water-resistant and no break-in time. This will quickly become your most comfortable pair of Tafts and will be great for the wet weather.
BLAKE-STITCHED CONSTRUCTION
Our shoes feature Blake-Stitched construction for longevity and comfort. It also allows for increased flexibility and a sleek silhouette. You will notice a big difference from normal, cemented shoes to a stitched pair of Taft footwear. Get ready for comfort right out of the box.

Great boot!

Amazing boot. Still figuring out my correct size. Im in between sizes often. But the construction and look of the shoe are unparalelled! Love it. Can’t wait to figure out which size fits best so I can rock these out of the house!

Great shoes!!

The fit was perfect. I followed the size recommendations on the website and they were accurate. I love my Taft Jack boot. The order was fast and unpacking was worth every dollar. I am definitely buying more.

Extremely happy

I never spent this much on a pair of shoes but after reading all the great reviews I decided to take the plunge. The shoes are beautiful, extremely well made and very comfortable right out of the box! I look forward to buying another pair very soon.

They Fit Me Perfectly

The most useful thing I can share with customers is about the shoes' size. I was not sure what size should I get because my sizes in America are uneven. Most of the times I am 7,5 but sometimes 8 and even 8,5! However, TAFT's online service was really helpful and nice, this person recommended me to try 7 and they fitted me perfectly. So I suggest as the website does, if you are between numbers try the lower one. The shoes are incredible, very very very comfortable and well made! It worths what you pay!

Mega Comfortable

I love these shoes. They fit true to size thankfully and have no issues. The shipping was faster than I thought it would be. This was my first pair from Taft but certainly not my last. Many people love the shoes.
