This is my second pair of Tafts. I honestly didn't think they could get better than my first pair (the Jack Boot in Eden), but when I opened the box, I was floored. The detail and craftsmanship is unreal. The flower pattern is just subtle enough to not overwhelm an outfit, yet they make the shoes totally pop and they become a conversation piece. They're actually hard to describe.
They fit like a glove though. Just tight enough to feel snug across the bridge of the foot, but not enough to be anything but super comfortable. I could wear them all day.
Here's the other thing. I actually ordered these and another pair of brown double Monk Straps (from another company) to try and compare. Both were handcrafted. Both made from the same materials. Both were super comfortable. However, the Tafts were superior in two ways. First, was the detailing and toe shape (obviously). They're just totally unique. Second, the soles. The other shoes were Goodyear Welt construction and had a full leather outsole as well, but they didn't have any sort of anti-slip. I tried them on and slid all over my house. they made me feel like they would wear out more quickly. The Luccas have that little touch of anti-slip grip that makes a ton of difference. They feel like they'll last forever too.
Anyway, stop reading this and just buy the damn shoes. You won't regret it.
