A Taft Review: The Jack Boot In Oxblood

I am thoroughly impressed by these boots from the look to the quality to the price for this unique style!  Taft runs a “second’s” sale each year and there was no way I was going to miss it.  I got my pair before they all sold out 12 minutes after the sales began.  After 9 long minutes of deliberation, I decided to go with the dark rich oxblood colored leather Jack Boot.

Huarache Ultra Run Review

New York is a walking, biking public transport type city but I stuck to the pedestrian form during my explorations and for that I needed comfortable yet stylish.  I purchased a pair of Huaraches Ultra Run’s a couple months ago and decided to pack them because of the excellent reviews I read about their comfort.   And let’s be clear these are an all-around dope looking sneaker.  I had never worn these shoes and was a bit worried about all the walking I’d be doing that day because of the typical 3-4 wears it takes to break-in sneakers until they are comfortable.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that these shoes did not require any breaking in and they felt like I’d been wearing them for the past year.  Overall I give these sneakers a 5 out of 5 for style and comfort, I love them and will definitely buy more.
