Description

Meet the Viking Boot in Stone, our most anticipated release of the season. This boot features a Vibram combat sole and a specially-developed leather with Charles F. Stead in England. Durable, stylish, and our Founder's all-time favorite.

This leather has been specially developed in collaboration with Charles F. Stead tannery in Leeds, England. Due to the multiple milling and tanning processes associated with the production, irregularities in the leather are to be expected and are a part of the character of this boot. If you are looking for a perfect, regular leather boot, please take note of this before purchasing. The Viking Boot runs small, we recommend sizing up.

Love them!

They're comfortable right out of the box, no breaking in necessary. It's true, they do run slightly smaller, but maybe only a half size? I typically wear a size 6, and they normally run ever-so-slightly too big, so these actually fit perfectly!

Also they look great too, and I've gotten tons of compliments on them already!

Beautifully styled Mountaineering Boot.

Love the style, well made Goodyear construction. Premium materials.

The only gripe I have is that the boot is sold as a US 13 but it fits like a US12 instead. I've got barely enough length but the girth over the ball and forefoot is too tight.

Great looking boots

These boots look great, and customer service with TAFT has been very good as well. I had an issue with the pull tab on the heel of one of my boots, and was able to easily cross ship a new pair.

Very pretty, easy to style, stupid comfy...one very small blemish

This is my second pair of boots from TAFT, and they fit beautifully. Day one, right out of the box, spectacularly comfortable. The pebbled finish is a little kitschy, but you buy the thing because it stands out or else you get a different boot. I'm probably going to replace the laces with something that doesn't contrast as much because there's already a lot going on from a texture perspective on this boot, but totally what I was looking for.

That one small thing? The pull loop by the achilles on the left boot broke free of its glue and stitches the first time I put the boot on. Be gentle with those, I guess. I'm going to just repair that with shoe glue and use the shoehorn that came in the box from now on.

Overall: super comfortable, gorgeous boot, with exactly one loose stitch.
