I originally ordered this boot in UK8.5 and found it was slightly too roomy even with thick socks and additional insoles. I contacted Kostas and let him know. Luckily there was a size 8 in stock and he was more than willing to offer an exchange if I covered shipping on one of the boots. The boots, now in the correct size, are amazing and just slightly snug. The leather is super unique with its markings and subtle texture. I was looking for a boot that has a dressy shape but in more casual make-up and this is exactly that. For sizing purposes I do have low volume feet so i'm still using a thin insole. These boots are also the same length heel-to-toe as RM Williams comfort craftsman size 8.5.
Overall I'm very happy with the boots, The Noble Shoe, and especially with Kostas
Just received my CS soft brown kudu jumper boots and they are beautiful.
I love how they mix the rugged and durable with an elegant last and impeccable craftsmanship. These definitely look a step up from my Alden's, OSB's, and Thursday's. Can't wait to break them in.
What makes this boot special is the kudu leather. It is full of scaring from the animals life making it a really interesting leather out of the box. Perhaps not the most suited boot for your meeting room but ut shines in a more casual environment. The second thing I noticed was how soft the leather was. It conformed quickly to my feet making it perhaps the most comfy goodyear welted shoe out of the box that I have experienced. The third thing about this leather is the thickness, it is substantially thicker than any other boot leather I have owned. The thickness in combination with the softness really makes this feel really nice to wear.
I bought the shoe in my regular size and I would say that it is less snug than other lasts but fit really well with a bit of thicker sock. Before my purchase I e-mailed a bit back and forth regarding size and color with Costas who was more than helpful. I can really recommend this boot and shopping at the noble shoe
