    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

    Unique Style. Highest Quality Materials.
    Handmade in Europe.

    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.
    BLAKE-STITCHED
    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.

      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.

      A late Christmas gift

      Because the shoes were not available untipl recently, we were unable to present this last Chritmas. Our friend who was given the shoes is so enthralled with them, he put them on Facebook. What more needs to be said.

      Great boot! Picked the wrong size

      Great boot but they run a size smaller. Customer service was great in exchanging them. Having a hard time buying a different brand.

      Beautiful Boots

      Shoes fit a little snug but that is to be expected with the fur lining, but not too tight that they were uncomfortable. The leather has a lot of depth to it, looks amazing. But almost all the compliments I get are about how cool the laces are. The only problem was one of the back pull tabs tore when putting them on after about a dozen wears. Still look fine though. I would absolutely buy from Taft again because of price to looks to quality ratio.

      Definitely Worth the Wait

      Just received mine in "Brown"!! And I am extremely pleased. Of course I read the reviews and after constantly visiting the site just to look at the boots. I'm soo glad I decided to add my email to the notification list. And as soon as I was notified that my size was in stock I immediately ordered! So glad I happened to check my emil when I did; because as soon as I went to the site there was (1) one! Pair left in my size 45 (us12) I ordered UP after reading al the reviews of course! I tried the boot on w a medium weight sock as I do plan on wearing them in the Cold weather, But Not in the rain!. They are simply too sharp IMO to wear in Bad weather. I'm completely excited to share my review. ****UPDATE****** I'm writing this review on January 27th I've had my boots a few weeks now as I've received them on Jan 7th. As others have stated the boots with the lining fit snug because of the great lining. I don't know if this is a common condition however one of my feet is larger than the other and that boot had to be broken in a little bit more. Which after a couple of weeks they fit perfectly and are comfortable and the Vibram sole looks to last for a very long time..
