Last & Sizing
If you choose the Shearling Lining:
Choose your Regular Carlos Santos Sizing and fits True To Size for most brands such as Carmina (Rain), TLB Mallorca Artista, Allen Edmonds 65, Meermin Hiro and Most Crockett & Jones lasts.
Sizing is in UK Numbers, which means that you should Size Down 1 Full Size from your regular US Sizing. For example, if you are a US 10 you should choose a UK 9. You can see the Sizing Chart Here.
If you DON'T choose the Shearling Lining:
Size down half from your usual UK Size in Brands like Carmina (Rain), TLB Mallorca Artista, Meermin Hiro and Most Crockett & Jones lasts.
If you are in the USA, simply go down 1.5 size from your regular Allen Edmonds US Sizing.

I love the boots. Also bought a pair for my son at the same time for a Xmas gift. He feels the same way. As always first class product and first class service. My 4th pair of boots from Kostas. Thank you.
I bought these boots without the shearling lining about one year ago. They are comfortable, stylish, and do well in wet conditions. Kostas was spot-on with his sizing advice (Brannock 8.0 D and Allen Edmonds 8.0 D, bought a UK 6.5). Customer service throughout the whole process was excellent.
There was only one disappointing aspect, namely, the tongue on one of the boots was stitched in such a way that it shifts to one side. Apparently a cobbler can easily fix this, but in my opinion, a $350 pair of boots shouldn’t arrive in a customer’s possession with this kind of flaw. It doesn’t prevent me from wearing or enjoying them, but it is disappointing nonetheless.
Overall, I would 100% buy from the Noble Shoe again but would hesitate to buy a Carlos Santos product again.
Excellent boots! Great service! Kostas responded to questions very quickly and was helpful with sizing and general advice. I have always browsed his website and this is my first purchase and I know I will buy again. Very interested to see what other unique GMTO Kostas comes up with.
The lightweight and soft commando sole and orange brown welt colour make these stand out. The boots are very comfortable on my feet (yours may be different) apart from one issue. On one of the boots there is a ridge in the merino wool that has managed to rub a hole in the bottom of a thick pair of socks and has given me a small blister near the heel. At first I thought it was just a nail that hadn't been flattened properly but it is not that. Regardless, I'm sure I'll flatten it out with a few more wears.
Other than that the boots are a great fit and have a distinctive look that is different from anything else I own. The Kudu leather is soft and very comfortable and the commando sole is made from a soft gum rather than the harder rubber compounds used in other soles, which provides plenty of cushioning.
In addition the service was first class and these were delivered in the UK less than 24 hrs after shipping from Stockholm.
These are fabulous boots. Kudu is my favourite leather and these show it off very well indeed. The Carlos Santos boots are very beautifully made and an incredibly reasonable price for such a good product. I am very, very happy with these! Kostas was extremely helpful and the shoes arrived, from Sweden, to the UK in two days. Fabulous boots and fabulous service. I look forward to buying more boots/shoes from The Noble Shoe. One more very happy customer.
