This is my first experience with Carlos Santos, but so far I'm very happy. The shoes are absolutely gorgeous. Besides looking great, they seem comfortable so far (although I haven't worn them much yet). The packaging and the personal note from the store are also very nice touches. All in all, I'm a very happy customer. I'm sure this won't be my last pair of Carlos Santod or my last purchase from The Noble Shoe!
Almost a year ago I started building my good-quality shoe collection and it was time for a pair of monk straps, after intensive research I decided to go with this pair of Carlos Santos shoes and buying them from The Noble Shoe.
Since I was hesitating about which size to get, I reached out to Kostas on the Facebook page, I obtained a quick response and great advice since the shoes fit really nicely.
I received them an hour ago and I haven't had time to properly wear them but I'm really happy with the quality, the color, and how they feel (arch support from how the shoe hugs my feet).
So in the end, I agree with other comments: great shoes, great service, fast shipping.
Carlos Santos 6942 Double Monk-Straps in Wine Calf
Ordered these for myself but ended up gifting them to my son for Christmas. The sizing is a bit more generous in the forefoot than the oxford version on the same last. This shoe is gorgeous and the color gives you superb versatility. Very few brands give you this quality at this price point. And as always, shipping and service are top notch.
Oh my, the shoe looks amazing in the pictures and it did not disappoint in person. What you see in the pictures is what you get, no catfishing here. I like to polish my shoes first thing out of the box but with these it is not necessary at all.
That patina is simply stunning. Some shoes go overboard but these look very natural. I was afraid the color would be too red for my liking but it's a beautiful mahogany.
The shoe is very comfortable, it almost does not need any break in for me. Nice padding on the heel, and the perfect amount of room in the toe box. I've never experienced arch support in a leather shoe before! A big thanks to the Noble Shoe for the size recommendation in the chat. My true size is US 9.5D and UK 8.5E, and this shoe in UK 8 fits me perfectly.
I have a few pairs of shoes from well known brands in the US $200 range that I like very much, but these are clearly on another level. I love that it comes with a shoe horn and 2 separate bags, and even the box has a beautiful texture to it. I feel spoiled, I don't think I can go back to those other brands anymore.
And thank you for the impossibly fast shipping, I was not expecting to receive these before Christmas! I'm very impressed with the ordering experience, I will definitely buy from Noble Shoe again.
