The Thursday Buy: These Rugged Leather Boots from TAFT Are the Best Men’s Boots for Spring

Taft men's boots

A pair of rugged and durable, yet lightweight, boots to carry you through spring from Taft.

Now that we’ve hit March, perhaps you’re under the impression that your rugged leather boots can be stowed away. To that, I say, well, not so fast. The best men’s boots on the market can be worn in at least three seasons, spring very much included, and that’s why we’re here to talk about the TAFT Dragon Boots 3.0, some of the coolest boots for men that I’ve seen (and wear-tested!) in some time. Now, these aren’t the TAFT Dragon Boots we talked about earlier this season on the blog in the Sunday Sale — these are an upgraded (and pricier) version. Not familiar with TAFT? It’s your lucky day, because they’ve got just about everything you need in a footwear brand, with a focus on dress boots at agreeable prices (given the fact that you can wear these boots pretty much anywhere, that is). Oh, and the fact that this particular pair is waterproof and ready for spring rain? That’s all the better.

TAFT men’s boots are designed in the States and crafted with care in Spain and Portugal. Both countries are a footwear hotbed these days, and that attention to detail pays off, at least in my experience with the TAFT Dragon Boots. They’re made from rugged suede leather that doesn’t scuff or break down too easily at all — and if your boots do get a bit scuffed up, isn’t that all the better? Keep in mind that TAFT also makes handsome wingtip dress boots & other silhouettes that wear more easily with, say, a tailored suit, but the TAFT Dragon Boots 3.0 are the perfect blend of rugged and refined.

TAFT men's boots review

Details really make the difference when it comes to rugged TAFT men’s boots, ehh?

As I always say, it’s the little things that separate the best boots for men from, well, cheaper pairs, and as you might expect, TAFT has a lot going for ’em. When it comes to the TAFT Dragon Boots 3.0, they’re made from waxed Commander Suede that, once again, is waterproof and ideal for seasonal storms. The Dragon sole, featuring a fairly slim profile and yet crucial studded treads for added grip, is also ideal when it comes to all-day comfort (trust me, I’ve worn mine for hours all around Brooklyn).

Plus, the TAFT Dragon Boots 3.0, especially in a cool and classic Rust shade of tough leather, are perfect for pairing with your favorite spring style essentials. Those style essentials should include, say, light wash denim and a rugged short-sleeve henley (for starters). But you can also wear them with a khaki cotton suit and a denim dress shirt for a nice mix of dressy, high-low spring style, and that’s what makes them some of the best spring boots for men right now. Step into them and see for yourself.
