Can Your Shoes Be Resoled?

Regardless of the construction, all of our shoes are recraftable and resoleable. We can also offer recrafting at the original factory to ensure the best hands work on your pair.

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.

Perfect Purchase

I’ve purchased a pair of CS140s Chelsea and now probably it is one of my fav shoe in my collection. I was a bit sceptical about black being the only option, but in the end when seeing them IRL I understood Kostas’ idea around those shoes.
Fits perfectly on my feet, Kostas was also kind to reconfirm the sizing with me.
Could only recommend!

Chelsea Fetish

Let me start by saying that I have more shoes than my female world at home. As an old school type of consumer, it always takes some time before I decide and so it happens with Noble. Shoudl I or not? But the obvious beauty of this boots kept me hunting and once i decided, my size wasn't available. Depression kicked in. A new opportunity arised and I didnt think twice. Great choice, amazing small details, choosen quality by Konstantin. There are still many of us who need this kind of experience in these strange times and world we are living in. Nothing more to comment only that since they arrived I can not decide if I should keep them & only looking at the beauty or not take them off - even while sleeping. Stay as you are !


Beautiful and amazing!

Amazing Fit and Presence

I came across Kostas and the Noble Shoe about a year ago and have ordered I think 9 or 10 shoes to date. All are Carlos Santos with the exception of 1 Crockett and Jones. Every shoe I received has been fantastic. They fit my feet perfectly. Equally important, the shoes are quality and command attention.

This review is for the CS Chelsea Boot. I have a few Chelsea boots from other brands (not Noble Shoe) and the CS shoe is by far superior both in fit, comfort,
and style. I could say more about this shoe and Kostas, but the fact that I am a repeat customer for several shoes hopefully conveys my overall total satisfaction.

By the way, as I write this, I eagerly await a GMTO of the reverse stitch single monk in black from CS and a Chelsea in a burgundy or brown patina.

And another hope, when I first bought shoes, the Vibram heel and city sole and the metal tip were options I added to all shoes. I understand that costs and production coordination were difficult and therefore made the cost prohibitive. But I hope they come back.

Keep up the great work Kostas.
