Can Your Shoes Be Resoled?

The Construction of the shoe is one of it's most important aspects.

At The Noble Shoe we use a variety of constructions that depend on the design and intention of the shoes.

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.

  • Goodyear Welted
  • Premium Blake Stitched

  • Chained Norwegian 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.

Anthony Benjamin
Wonderful Derby!

These shoes are absolutely stunning and the Norwegian Welt is tastefully done. They have already garnered a few compliments. Kostas is great at what he does and very attentive to the needs of the customer. This is my 2nd pair of shoes purchased from The Noble Shoe.

Charles Bénière
First pair of Scafora

Just received these split toe derbies. They ticked all my boxes as I wanted a norwegian welt from Scafora. This construction is perfect with these split toe derbies. Size recommendation for the door last was good (9.5 and I wear 10 or 10.5 usually). First buy at thenobleshoe as well but not last as advice and delivery time and packaging were perfect.

Alexander Galarza

This is by far the best shoes I have in my collection the attention to detail is insane. The customer service and the personalized help from Kostas makes the experience even better.
Thank you 🙏🏼

Beautiful craftsmanship

Amazing attention to detail and quality in this shoe. Sizing recommendation was spot-on. I’d love to see more options from Paulo Scafora in your shop.

John Foster
Scafora - split toe derby

Perhaps I can't afford a Bugatti, but the Paolo Scafora norwegian split toe makes me feel like I can wear some Italian engineered perfection on my feet.

The richness of the leather is exceptional. The fit and finish reminds me of a parmigiani or pp nautilus.

For just over a thousand dollars, you can begin enjoying the nicest pair of shoes available on Earth.
