Love at First Sight: Meet the Jack Boot in Calico by Taft!
Meet the Jack Boot in Calico
By: Oneil Gardner
If you don't know about the Taft Jack Boot in Calico then you need to become familiar. This particular Jack Boot is one of the most sought after pairs of Taft Boots. If you missed the preorder period, that is it folks, these will not be stocked again. I had the opportunity to catch up with Kory Stevens, who is one-half of the founder duo at Taft. Being curious in nature, I wanted to know how the Calico Boot came to be. Well here's what Kory had to say!
"I went to the factory late last year and I happened to be there for a really big textile fair. It was there that I found this wool with amazing texture and detail. Never seen wool like this before so I knew I had to get it."
"I got the textile sample and ended up designing the Calico Boot for myself. I loved it, but I knew it would be super polarizing and not sure how anyone would react to it. I just designed it for myself an planned on keeping it just for me."
"I posted a photo of it on Instagram really casually and everyone freaked out over it. I got tons of emails and texts about it, so I ended up putting it online for preorder."
Well, there you have it. That is how the Jack Boot in Calico came to be! Check out the images below of my pair of Calicos. Stay tuned to see how I style these beauties ;) Drop some comments below to let me know what you think about the boots.
