Meet the Jack in Grey/Oxblood. This boot has quickly become our signature product. The upper eyelets are reinforced to add structure and durability. The calfskin inner-lining helps support and add structure to the 100% wool upper. The decorative pull tab keeps the silhouette minimal and sleek, while still giving it a rugged feel. The sole unit is a full rubber lug combat sole for added grip, durability, and comfort. This is a versatile boot, ranging from formal attire to casual wear. We spared no expense on this boot and the comfort and quality will show from the moment you put them on.

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.
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.
RUBBER COMMANDO SOLE
If you are going for comfort, you should consider our Commando Sole. Very lightweight, water-resistant and no break-in time. This will quickly become your most comfortable pair of Tafts and will be great for the wet weather.
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.
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.
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.
What is my Taft shoe size? Our shoes are made true to size. If you typically wear a size 42, you can order a size 42 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 43.5, we recommend that you size down to a 43.
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.
