Can Your Shoes Be Resoled?

  • Goodyear Welted
  • Premium Blake Stitched

If you have specific questions about a shoe, don't hesitate to email us.

How Do I Find My Sizing?

Finding your sizing in a new brand can be tricky, however we are experts in this field due to our extensive knowledge of most brands.

To find your size, you would need to use (or provide us with) your average dress shoe size.

The next step would be to look at the description and sizing advice of the shoes you are looking at. Many of our shoes have generous sizing and require half a size down.

Each shoe has an individual sizing advice tab in its description, or you can even refer to our in-depth guide. We strongly recommend that you email us or use the live chat function for advice.

Measurements, Brannock Devices and Sneakers do not help. Sneakers are wildly inconsistent, while measurements and tracings are required for Bespoke and Made To Measure items.

What Is Your Return Policy?

The Noble Shoe has a very flexible 14 Days Return Period for items in stock.

Very often, we travel or something happens with our lives and we forget. As long as it is within reason, we will not refuse a return due to the time.

To return a pair of shoes, they need to be in excellent condition without signs of wear and creasing and with all the original accessories and packaging. We strive to provide high end quality items and care for the experience that the next person will have.

For verification, we will ask you for 1-2 pictures to showcase the condition of the uppers and the sole and then we can proceed with your return.

For returns or exchanges, we charge a one time fee equal to the shipping label cost which is usually around $40 USD.

Custom Made Items (Single MTO, Patina Service, Group Made To Order) from Carlos Santos, Enzo Bonafe, Paolo Scafora, Crockett & Jones and items on clearance are final sale and cannot be returned or refunded.

All shoes are quality controlled before shipping, but if something happens or you notice a defect, we consider it our duty to help you and resolve the issues.

For a detailed guide on our return policy please refer here.

Are You Really A Shoemaker?

The Noble Shoe is not about sales, but passion.

When I started this brand, I loved shoes and my dream was to become a Bespoke Shoemaker.

I studied Bespoke Shoemaking at one of the best schools in the world: Stefano Bemer Bespoke in Florence (Italy).

A fully handmade shoe can take anywhere between 60-100 hours to produce, with the true definition of handmade and tradition.

Understanding what goes into a shoe and why is a key element to reply to all your technical questions.

There are very few remaining online stores that have the competence and knowledge that The Noble Shoe has.

Classic Derby in Coimbra Patina

I want to thank Kostas for his help in sizing for my shoes. I have purchase two shoes so far. The Field Boot in Dark Brown Suede/Brown Calf and the Classic Derby in Coimbra Patina.
I was so happy the fit perfectly. Also, I am patiently awaiting the next two pairs of shoes I ordered. Keep up the good work Kostas!!!
Over all, I am super satisfied with the responsiveness and the shoe quality. Can wait to see what else The Noble Shoe can come up with!

Thank you so much Adrian once more. I am really glad I can help you with the proper sizing and look forward to shipping the rest of your shoes!

Fits like a glove with beautiful colors!

Just received my 9381 derbys from Kostas over at the Noble Shoe.

Super happy with them! Thanks Kostas for the sizing and maintenance tips, it fits like a glove and I got some neutral polish for it. Roomy last too so it’s very comfortable.
The colours are beautiful and have the depth I was after - it’s not a flat brown at all. Cherry on top was that I received this less than a week after ordering!

I have high hopes for this pair!

Excellent shoes - great service

This was my first pair of nice goodyear-welted dress shoes, and my first pair of Carlos Santos. I took a bit of gamble because this is a roomier last and I'm normally a between a 9.5 and a 9D on a Brannock device, but I ordered a size 8 UK. The sizing was very close, but I have some room in the instep. I bought some thin insoles to use with this shoe and the fit is pretty much spot-on for me.

The shoes arrived quickly especially for international shipping to the USA - I had them within 7 days of placing my order. They were well-packaged, which I appreciated because it was raining the day they were delivered. I emailed Kostas to ask about fit and he was very responsive.

Overall I am in love with these shoes and very pleased with the purchase, service, and communication from Kostas. They are an excellent value and I'm looking forward to wearing these for many years to come. Best of luck to you Kostas - thank you again for the service and I will continue to shop with you in the future!

Thank you so much Josh, it has been my pleasure to communicate with you and help you with your questions! All my love and Christmas wishes to the US!

Extremely happy

Very happy with my new pair of Carlos Santos!
Build quality of this shoe is as expected, as this isn't my first pair of CS shoes. The fit is perfect, as I chose to scale half a size down as recommended. Really appreciate I also got a message from Kostas, checking with me if I saw that recommendation. Where this specific shoe really stands out is that the patina on this shoe is really fantastic I think. It definitely has the most beautiful and elegant look of all the shoes in my (very modest) collection.
It's just really nice to shop at a place like this, where you get a personal service, from someone who is obviously very passionate and knowledgeable about what he does.

It was my pleasure Niels! I sure hope you enjoy them for years to come!
