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

Product Details
SOFT FAUX FUR LINING
A unique feature to the Viking Boot, this style is lined with comfortable faux fur that will break in and mold to your foot. This boot will keep your feet warm and cozy.
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.
VIBRAM COMMANDO SOLE
Vibram makes the most renowned rubber sole for Goodyear construction. It is durable, comfortable, and adds an extra layer of water-resistance to your boots. The best boots in the world are often made with a Vibram sole and we knew it was the right choice for this style.
GOODYEAR WELT CONSTRUCTION
This shoe is made using the classic Goodyear Welt Construction. This method allows for easy resoling, longevity, and added water-resistance. Goodyear welt construction is the most labor intensive type of shoe construction and the result is a beautiful shoe that will last you a long time.
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.
When ordering TAFT sneakers, if you wear a half size, please size up. Our sneakers run a little small.
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 Europe 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.

Look so amazing

These boots are unique and have a very STRONG look. Like nothing I’ve ever worn. Only trouble is the stiffness - maybe it’s just much stiffer when new.

Nice shoes but maybe wrong size for me

I’ve been enjoying my new shoes and have received compliments on them. I only wish I had exchanged for a half size smaller before I work them outside. The vamp has a lot of room and I can see it creaeing already.
