Frequently Asked Questions

What Leathers Do You Use?

The Noble Shoe works with the best tanneries in the world and only uses Full Grain Leather. All our exotics are ethically sourced and come with the appropriate CITES Certification.

Some of the tanneries we work with are:

  • D'annonay

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.

Most of our shoes use the following constructions:

  • Goodyear Welted
  • Premium Blake Stitched
  • Handwelted
  • 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.

Great boots!

The Kudu skin looks really nice and fit my feet well. Highly recommended!

Demetris Efstathiou
Light and comfortable

Very pleased with the service from Kostas. Shoes look nice, and the leather is of high quality. Very light (for boots) and comfortable. Did not want to take them off.

Nice boots!!

These boots are nice and unique! The leather looks and feels great! The color along with the "distressed" parts of the leather allow these boots to be dressed down or casual.

I can see these boots being an "every day" boot. I will say that it will take a few wears to get used to the commando sole. But overall another fine purchase from Noble. I hope they make a boot like this in black soon.

AJ Amores

These boots are amazing. Kudu leather looks perfect in this dark brown with the random darker marks giving a l nice texture to it. Perfectly comfortable from the first wear even. The soles have great grip and feel great! These boots maintain a level of sophistication in look from the last shape, and in feel with the construction of the heel giving a harder heel feel than a boot, and closer that of a dress show with a thick rubber topper. Just perfect boots, seriously.

Also Kostas was fantastic as always. I order a half size larger than my other shoes and he immediately emailed me to make sure I didn't make a mistake in my order, which is great, though I ordered larger on purpose to accommodate my winter and hiking socks mostly. I am beyond satisfied. Thank you.

All around shoes

Best for everything for me up to semi formal attire. Thank you!
