How to measure your foot
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

Meet the Kennedy. Our favorite thing about this shoe is the versatility. Wear it with slacks, wear it with jeans, wear it to work or a dinner party. The Kennedy will quickly become your new go-to. This is a captoe lace-up with Blake construction. It has a reinforced stacked leather sole with rubber inserts for extra durability. The wool flannel is made in Italy and then shipped to our factory in Spain. When we initially previewed the shoe it became a fast favorite and we couldn't be happier to finally have it available. 

  • Wool Flannel from Italy
  • Standard D width
  • Handcrafted in Spain
  • Blake Construction (resoleable)
Product Details
FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
We only use vegetable-tanned, chromium-free, full-grain leathers. These high-quality leathers make 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.
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.
STACKED LEATHER SOLE
Stacked leather sole with rubber injections offers durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
BLAKE-STITCHED
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.
Sizing Guide
All TAFT boots and shoes are designed to match standard US dress shoe sizes.
All our shoes are standard D width. If you have wide feet, size up.
If you wear in-between sizes, please size down for Taft boots and shoes.
Buying Sneakers? Size up if you typically wear a half size.
The TAFT Quality Promise

Beautiful Shoes. Bold Styles.

Handmade in Europe by experienced artisans, every pair is made with precision, patience and decades of experience. 

In a world of poorly made shoes, TAFT products are built to last. Every pair is hand-cut and Blake-stitched using vegetable-tanned leathers from top European tanneries and mills. Your shoes will look beautiful right out of the box, and for years to come.

Comfortable & versatile

My second pair of Taft shoes...they are a bit tighter than the Saint boots, but still very comfortable. These shoes literally go with everything (except shorts) - I've already received tons of compliments. Highly recommend.

Everyday elegant

This is my...8th (?) pair of Taft shoes. My second Kennedy. I also have the green. The gray isn’t as much of a standout as the green, or a head turner like the Jack shoes, but it is style that I can wear everyday—understated and yet most likely still the nicest pair of shoes in at any casual occasion. This is a shoe I can wear often without being pretentious. I love it.

Elegant and distinctive shoes

Like all of Taft’s shoes this pair of Kennedy in Green I love to wear not just because they are elegant but also because they are distinctive. They are very eye-catching and get complemented on every time I wear them. Good job designers by these shoes.

Get em while they last

My 4TH pair of Taft. I tried searching for a green pair of dress shoes to avoid paying the Taft price point, but to no avail. Every pair of men’s green dress shoes I could find were low quality, and/or looked like something Peter Pan would wear. I pulled the trigger on these at Last Chance. Sooo glad I did! Wore them the first time to meet with some friends in Newport, and they could not get over how amazing these shoes are!
