With Donald Trump carving an eerie path to the presidency, you’re going to be hearing the term “jackboot” thrown around a lot in the next few months. But there’s no reason that fascist thugs should own a footwear term, which is presumably why the people at Taft have come out with their Jack Boot in Brown, no relationship to those black knee-lengths favored by war criminals everywhere.
The Jack Boot in Brown is handmade from (bear with me here) Italian leather in Spain, with an inner lining of calfskin and a pull tab in the back that’s purportedly just for show. And unlike its cousin without the space in between “jack” and “boot,” it’s versatile in a wide variety of situations, not just marching through Poland.
If you don’t mind spending a little bit of money on quality footwear, you can order your own Jack Boot in Brown for $235 from the Taft online store right here.
