I recently purchased two pairs of Taft sneakers (Jack Sneaker in Eden & Sneaker in Blue Stripes, the latter being my favorite) and I love them! I wear them all the time and receive compliments on them. I absolutely LOVE the Blue Stripes design! It's bright, textured, and matches perfectly with a variety of outfits, and this pair in particular feels really well made. I should mention, though, that the leather coloring on both pairs has noticeably stained the white laces. I'll have to purchase a couple new set of laces which is no big deal, just a little annoying.
All in all, Taft sneakers are a solid, quality, boutique product with unique designs that you can't find anywhere else. I'm sure I'll be wearing them for years to come!
