Frequently Asked Questions

What Leathers Do You Use?

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.

Beautiful, Beautiful Shoe

It's always a gamble ordering shoes online, and if you've ever had unpleasant experiences, you're wise to be careful. Shoes are such personal items in terms of fit and style, for example, and pics don't always accurately show what you're getting. Let me just say these shoes are even more beautiful in person. Stunning. I've looked at shoes at higher price points that don't have as much eye appeal. The leather is quality, the build and stitching tight, and the color a rich brown with hints of red. The last is sleekly proportioned, a bit wider in the toe box than similar Oxfords I have but with a fluid taper and an exquisite waist. The almond toe is modern and looks traditional without being stodgy. My only issue is heel slippage even though the rest fits comfortably, but I notice this is not uncommon with European-made shoes in general for me. There are remedies, and these shoes are not broken in yet, so I expect the fit to get better in time. I'm also in the camp that believes that because feet swell, you have to think about fit all day and not just when you first put them on. The shoes arrived hassle free in a few days, and I like them so much, I'm thinking about ordering some Carlos Santos monks, too.
