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

Meet the Viking Boot in Brown, our most anticipated release of the season.  This is our most heavy duty boot, featuring a Vibram combat sole, and Italian full-grain leather.  After countless requests for a cold-weather friendly boot, we've produced a boot that can stand up to winter.  Durable, stylish, and our Founder's all-time favorite.

    Product Details
    FULL-GRAIN LEATHERS
    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.
    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.
    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.
    STACKED LEATHER SOLE
    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.
    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.
    Sizing Guide
    All Taft shoes are design to match standard US dress shoe sizes. However, to ensure the perfect fit, please make sure:
    All our shoes are standard D width. If you have wide feet, please select next size up.
    If you wear in-between sizes, please size down for Taft boots and shoes.
    Do not order your sneaker size. Please size down 0.5 - 1 US number.
    In general, our shoes run slightly big. We suggest you size down if you are between sizes.

    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 vegetable-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.

    FAQ

    What is my Taft shoe size?
    Our shoes are made true to size. If you typically wear a size 9, you can order a size 9 in Taft shoes.

    We only offer whole sizes...if you typically wear a half-size, we strongly recommend that you size down. For example, if you wear a size 10.5, we recommend that you size down to a 10.

    If you have any specific questions, you can email us at support@taftclothing.com. We are happy to help!

     

    The shoe I want is sold out... what should I do?
    We are working hard to manage our inventory and make sure we can have your size available. We will try and bring back older styles as often as possible. Be sure to sign up for the Back-in-Stock notifications on the product page to be the first to know when a shoe is back in stock.

    First Pair

    I’ve waited a few wears before writing this to give more than an excited, new shoe day review. These Viking Brown boots are gorgeous and comfortable. It took a day for the tongue to soften a bit, but now I could wear them every day. The classic hiker style with finish that makes them office worthy is awesome. Now, I’m hoping more of the Vikings come with this calfskin lining! It’s time to choose which of the Taft boots and shoes will be next :)

    Terrific Boot

    The Dragon Boot led me here, and I am very glad to have come. These are great boots. Sturdy and with terrific grip for inclement weather. The other reviews are right. You do need to go a size up from your usual size. Once you have them fitting right though, you won't let them go.

    Great Viking boots!

    Really love the look of these boots. Ordering was easy and shipment was quick. Boots look to be super well constructed and fit was as expected. They are really sharp looking boots and I've received compliments. They are a little stiff, but feel good and they should break in nicely with wear.

    Legit Boots, Taft is the real deal

    I have never received so many compliments on a clothing item, seriously. Beautifully crafted, rugged yet refined style. I love these.

    Excellent Shoe

    The fit was spot on. Everyone at work has complimented the shoes. They are comfortable right out of the box.

    Try: "jack boot", leather, size 9, suede...
