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

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.
STACKED LEATHER SOLE
Stacked leather sole with rubber injections offer durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
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.

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.

Very satisfied

This is the second pair of Taft shoes I’ve purchased (Sinatra in cognac is the other) and I really like them. The first wearing I started to get a blister, but that has stopped since storing them with nice shoe trees. I love the packaging as it’s as well made as the shoes; shoe bags, shoe horn, and the box itself are all impressive. I get that giddy morning-of-Christmas feeling (not had in 20 years) when I see this box in the hall.

Another great pair of shoes from Taft.

This is probably my 10th pair of Taft shoes and they never seem to disappoint. These are great to dress down as well as wear with a tuxedo. Incredible quality at a reasonable price.

The Lucca

Enjoying my new Luccas! Nice, stylish and comfortable. They do run a bit big so I had to return and get the next size down but the return was easy and seemless. Very Happyy!

Amazing!

It's hard to find a black dress shoe that stands out but Taft nailed it! The details are even better in person. I own these in brown as well and can't say enough about them!!

Taft is a level up

I ordered the Lucca in black for a wedding that I'm going to in a few weeks and could not be happier. First, the packaging is top-notch and really makes you feel like you're opening something that the people behind the company really care deeply about. Then you get to the shoes, which look awesome (the weave pattern really sets it apart from your typical black dress shoe) and are instantly comfortable. I haven't worn them for an extended period of time yet (saving them for that wedding), but I will definitely be buying more from Taft!

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