I love these shoes! They fit perfectly true to size and look every bit as good as the photos. I’ve had two pair of Jack Boot for the last year. These sneakers start out a little stiffer than the boots, but break in wonderfully after a few days of wear. The upper molds to the foot as the boots do, and from then on they are the same great comfort. What sets these sneakers apart from cheaper brands is that after break in, I can still feel the strength and quality of construction, assuring me these shoes will last longer than any sneakers I’ve had before and have Taft’s true craftsmanship throughout.
