About the Shoe: good weight, vibrant colored suede, a lovely looking sole. The best feeling loafer that I had in my hands ever. And I had a full day of compared loafers. Most feel so flimsy, this one sturdy. Yet when I walked on them, even runned with them after deciding to keep them, they felt super flexible. I will dance on them tonight I am certain it will be a pleasant experience.
On the sizing. I seem to usually have 8.5 but it was too large wkth socks on. The 8 was still relaxed but fitted me in a way I was comfortable enough to not return them. Without socks it really is like the 8.5. Which is not for me anyway, so 8 was good!
On another note I would like to express my overall experience too. The Noble Shoe says that it is an experience. I didn't know how that could be possible. But I get it now. I made my first order (Carlos Santos 9176 Elliot Penny Loafers), recieved excellent advice on how to handle the shoes in case I needed to return them, had a one on one call about what to expect with said loafers, and some more. Overall superb customer care and what stood out for me was their expertise and honesty. I am HAPPY to save up for my next purchase here, because I just know for sure I will add another shoe to my collection that I am going to be proud and happy to own.
I felt totally comfortable in my dealings with The Noble Shoe, which is super important to me. I don't feel like they want to sell me something. No, Kostas has simply helped me guide my desire to own quality shoes in the right direction. Felt no attempt to excite me for sales, but only the attempt to help me meet the right pair of shoes for me. Any question I had I felt free to ask, and oh boy, I did. And that is why to me, The Noble Shoe isn't just a company, but a kind of friend and fellow enthusiast about good looking, good quality men shoes. That is my experience. And it is how I like it best.
Writing this makes me want to buy another pair immediately, just to show I actually mean this. But patience is a good thing haha.
Thank you Kostas, you made a difference to me.
PS: First time wearing them I got compliments already. Never gotten that on shoes before. Coincidence? Think not!
