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

  • Standard D width
  • Fully Leather Lined
  • Blake Construction
  • Handmade by artisans in Spain
    Product Details
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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 with rubber injections offers durability, comfort, and traction. Leather soles are universally recognized as the most luxurious and premium type of sole.
    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. In general this particular style runs small, we suggest using our “Find my size” feature.
    All our shoes are standard D width.

    Great show that can be casual or dressed up

    The shoes look great and I’m really looking forward to pairing it up with more of a fall look! They are very comfortable.

    Best pair of dress shoes I've purchased in years!

    The shoes are great! It took a little bit to break them in, but that is expected! Once I wore them around the house, for a few days they were good to go. Wore them as part of my COVID elopment ceremony and it really took my red suit to the next level! Even had matching suspenders to the shoes!

    Camo loafer

    Really want to 5-Star these

    These fit me a little loose, which is odd, cause in the other +5 pairs of Tafts I have I'm a solid 41. Coupled with the fact that the description on the page says they run narrow, I was really surprised when they were wider and looser than I expected. I wish I didn't wear them outside and instead did an immediate exchange because these shoes are absolute fire: Comfort, quality, aesthetics, compliments. I ended up getting some inserts for the heel which only helps slightly. Such fantastic shoes with iffy fit, which was was my mistake, so I can't help but not love these as much as I know I could.
