That escalated quickly...
I think I now have eight or nine pairs of Taft shoes and boots. I've gotten used to the compliments that come the first time I wear a new pair out in the world. All their shoes are so gorgeous, you come to expect the recognition of the fact. However, I have never gotten so many compliments, so enthusiastically and so quickly, many from complete strangers, as I have the first few times I have worn these sneakers out. People love these shoes. It makes them happy to see me wearing these shoes. If I could wear sneakers all day every day, I'd probably wear these all the time, because they are just as comfortable as they are gorgeous. Bravo Taft, you nailed it again. On the more practical side, I have always ordered Taft's size 42/9 depending on the sizing scale, I ordered these in a 9, and they fit perfectly.
literally beautiful shoes
got these a few days ago. do NOT listen to the taft sizing guidelines for these sneakers, they fit true to size. i'm an 8 in taft's dragon and jack boots, but a 9 in these (8 was way too small). however, after the exchange these are literally perfect. extremely eye catching without being gaudy, tons of compliments.
Better in Person
These are amazing! Super minimal silhouette with a great eye-catching design. Extremely comfortable with zero break-in time needed. I received them 2 days ago and have worn them nonstop ever since with constant compliments at every turn. While Taft normally runs slightly big, these fit true-to-size. I normally wear a 9.5/42.5 in boots and dress shoes and 10/43 in Nike or Adidas, so I go down to a 9/42 in Taft boots but stay at 10/43 in these.
