The Perfect Balmoral Boot For Any Occasion!

If you have been searching for the perfect every day boot whether it is for the office, a formal meeting or the day out, look no further!

The Carlos Santos 1040 Handgrade Balmoral Boot in Dark Brown Suede/Calf is the newest and most exciting addition to The Noble Shoe Collection.

It has all the same features you loved in other shoes by Carlos Santos but taken to the next level. The core remains Goodyear Welted in Portugal with the beautiful hand-painted Closed Channel Leather Sole.

The uppers are made from the finest Bi-Material combination of Dark Brown Suede (Shaft) and Calfskin (Bottom). The Dark Brown Suede is the same beautiful leather used on the classic Field Boots of The Noble Shoe, however the bottom part is made in a Darker Brown Color.

This time however we have the exclusive New 445 Last that you loved on the Reverse Stitched Oxfords!

The Boots also have some very light and discreet Broguing around the Shaft and a Punched Cap-Toe. Under a nice navy suit these will look like formal oxfords, while looking incredible under denim and more casual trousers when revealing the suede part.

Lovely Boots

My first time ordering from Noble Shoe. Had an excellent consultation with Kostas who recommended the size for me. I’ve had a hard time finding my size with different manufacturers but Kostas knows his stuff. I just had to tell him what size shoes I wear with other brands and he knew what would work for me.

I wear an 11E (wide) in the US and the 10UK on this boot fit like a glove. The boots arrived just a few days after ordering, two days ahead of schedule. You get two -kinda rough- shoe bags, a plastic branded shoe horn from CS and very nice personalized hand written note from the boss of the operation Kostas. The star of the shoe are the boots. They’re great condition with minimal imperfections in less obvious places. Those are made by humans and I totally get that. This is the first time I buy a dress shoe/boot and it comes polished with a mirror shine on the cap!! The soles are a thing of beauty. I almost don’t want to walk on them.

Very very positive experience and will be a returning customer. Looking at those patina options on the other page :-)

Best fit ever for a standard boot on Scandinavian feet’s

Very nice finish for this price and very comfortable. Can compete with C&J (of the shelf) but luckily a little wider :)

Great Boots, Great Service.

These are very good boots, I love Carlos Santos shoes, prior to shopping at Noble shoes I only had one pair of Carlos Santos boots which I treasured. Kostas customer service is unbelievable I have never seen anything like it that within two months I have already bought two pairs and ready to buy my third pair. Kostas thank you so much. Your videos are great and I have gained a lot of knowledge from them.👍

Thank you so much Taisan!

I appreciate your support and I am extremely happy you like them!

These are quality boots, and the service from Noble Shoe is second to none!

Both the materials and craftsmanship of the boots are excellent. The stitching is clean and well done. The toe caps are straight, even and aligned. The boots are symmetrical as you would expect. The outsoles are very nice; I almost felt bad walking on them.

The calf leather on the upper is nice and supple. It looks as good in person as on the website. The coloration is even and the creases that have started to form are very subtle and consistent on each shoe. I expect these to wear in nicely. The suede is soft and a deep, rich brown that is very pleasing to look at and touch. The calf and suede compliment one another nicely in both look and feel.

These boots feel comfortable right out of the box. They are form fitting and hug the foot and ankle close. It makes for a sleek and elegant presentation on foot and an enjoyable wearing experience.

Kostas' customer service is excellent. He is extremely responsive on email and his knowledge of his shoes is top notch. He will work with you to guide you to the correct size and make the online purchasing experience hassle free.

These boots are well worth the price, and you can rest assured Kostas will go above and beyond to ensure you have a good experience with your purchase.

Definitely worth the price

Wonderful quality for the price, exceptional service thanks to Kostas.
