Curating a honed collection of shoes for any and all occasions can take time. From finding the right broguing on a boot to choosing a loafer bit with just the right shine—the decision comes down to every last detail. Oftentimes overlooked when putting together an outfit, the shoe gives us an opportunity to take an ordinary look and make it our own.
The meticulous and intentional minds at TAFT are creating pieces that take an individualistic, and bold approach to footwear. Founded in 2013, TAFT has developed an array of loafers, boots, shoes, sneakers, slippers and more with high quality, high fashion, and high comfort top of mind. TAFT sources only the finest leather and materials from Europe where each piece is hand-cut, hand-painted, and hand-stitched by artisans in Spain and Portugal. TAFT has been able to take a product most of us are used to buying mass-produced and restore the authenticity and unique feeling that comes with owning a pair of well-crafted shoes. TAFT transports you into a cobbler’s storefront on a small street in Spain when your first pair is delivered to your door, exceeding all expectations.
We’ve ranked our top six favorite picks from TAFT for the season and found something in each pair that we were impressed with. For a closer look at their full collection, visit www.taftclothing.com .
Product 1: The Jack Sneaker in Honey
The Jack Sneaker in Honey is the shoe to wear if you want people asking, “Where did you get those?” These comfortable classics have a unique composition of fabric and leather that make them versatile enough for day or night.
Product 2: The Jack Shoe in Tux
This is the shoe for any black tie event. The boldness of these shoes is hidden in their simplicity and we were blown away by the elevated look these bring without sacrificing comfort.
Product 3: The Hampton Sneaker in Aberdeen
The Hampton Sneaker in Aberdeen has become a new staple of ours. They have just the right amount of character that makes a casual look stand out.
Product 4: The Jack Shoe in Eden Noir
The Jack Shoe in Eden Noir is the perfect pair of shoes to step out and make a statement in. This is the perfect pair of shoes to elevate a traditional black and white suit, and a look you can’t get anywhere else.
Product 5: The Dylan Boot in Woven
The Dylan Boot in Woven is a unique design that we do not see very often. The jodhpur style which consists of a shorter heel and rounded toe is a fresh take on your traditional Chelsea boot. To take it a step further, the Dylan Boot is garnished with an ankle strap and buckle which, when paired with the hand-burnished leather, makes a durable and stylish shoe that will last a lifetime.
Product 6: The Saint Boot in Espresso
The Saint Boot in Espresso is one of our favorite picks from TAFT this season. Everytime you look at this boot you’ll find something new to love about it. From the detailed broguing that borders the wingtip, to the rich brown leather, this bold take on a classic can’t be found anywhere else.
