Can Your Shoes Be Resoled?

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.

Beautiful comfortable and probably becoming an addiction

Chukka - Excellent fit

Mr. Kostas reached out for the fit. One of the earlier shoes that I purchased (double monkstrap) was half a size loose so he recommended to go down full size to 7 Uk (my regular US size is 9D) and it fitted perfectly. No break-in needed. 100% recommeded Noble Shoe and appreciate Mr.Kostas customer service

Great Chukka Boots

The Carlos Santos Chukka Boots exceeded my expectations. The quality is even better than shown in the photographs. The 401 last is slightly elongated which allows the boots to be paired with more formal clothing. I have wide feet and the boots fit well out of the box. The fit of the boots on my wider feet was a pleasant surprise because I own Carlos Santos derby shoes in the 397 last and a small amount of break in was needed for those derby shoes. Highly recommended!!

Noble Shoe Experience

I’ve been looking for a quality Chukka boot since having a quality Thornton Bay chukka in high school. I had been to all of the common large retail names i.e., Macys, Dillard, Lords and Taylor, etc. but, none to my liking. A military brother of mine whom i visited earlier this year that is very particular in his fashion, told me about The Noble Shoe. Plus, he had a pair of the boots that I have ordered and I knew right then that those are it! I have no issue paying for quality as I value the things that I purchase. And to top it all off, I emailed the site to make sure I got the proper sizing to avoid returns, and lo and behold once they arrived so did I. The fit is spot on. Now, with my wardrobe I know that I have the footwear that makes me feel like ME. Thank You Noble Shoe.

Fantastics Pair of Boots

These are a fantastic pair of Chukka’s! Not only are they a great looking pair of shoes, they’re extremely well made and by far the most comfortable pair of boots in my closet. Well worth price and the customer service is some of the best I’ve experienced. Highly recommend picking up a pair!
