Carlos Santos CS14 Handgrade V-Front Derby In Bordo Shadow Patina
A Unique, Special Limited Edition Derby
Watching the Parisian Gentleman Hugo Jacomet I stumbled upon a unique shoe in his collection. A very special Derby that he owned and loved for years. I am glad to be able to present to you the Carlos Santos CS14 Handgrade V-Front 2 Eyelet Derby in Bordo Shadow Patina!
The CS14 is not your average Derby. It is a 2 Eyelet Derby with a V-Front Plain Toe which is very unique and not available from any other Brand. It is also part of the Handgrade Range, Carlos Santos' most Premium Line of Shoes.
The 401 Chiseled Almond Last was the perfect choice for this style, accentuating the details with its elongated elegant shape. Of course these shoes are Goodyear Welted in Portugal for The Noble Shoe.
Finished in the Handpainted Gorgeous Bordo Shadow Patina it is the perfect statement as Burgundy is a very versatile color as you all know. In fact, this is a Patina only offered at The Noble Shoe!
A Sole Like No Other
Look around the RTW Industry and try to find a better sole than the Handgrade Range of Carlos Santos under $450.
The Sole is an absolute work of art. Very rarely will you come across such high quality finish for this kind of price range. An tight, beveled waist with a slight Fiddleback that is Hand-carved during production and a Hidden Closed Channel Leather Sole.

This is my first pair of Carlos Santos. I came across this unique design through one of the multiple videos in YouTube and immediately caught my attention. The construction quality is also exceptional. The sole is beautifully finished, so much that it is a shame to wear the shoes and mess it up. The shoes are beautiful just on their own, but they reach another level once you put them on. Very comfortable too.
Great customer service from Kostas himself. I've watched some of his videos in YT and he always seemed like a genuine and very nice man to me. Once I began to communicate with him, I could confirm I wasn't wrong. They say people won't buy from you if they don't like you, not matter what you sell (and viceversa). I think I can already consider myself a loyal customer of The Noble Shoe.
I purchased both this pair and the black hatchgrain chukka GMTO together. As always, it was a very pleasant experience purchasing from Kostas at The Noble Shoe. He even contacted me after I placed the order suggesting a go a half size up on the GMTO. It was a good thing he did as well, for I don't think the size I originally had ordered would have fit (or at least not near as well).
The CS14 Handgrade V-Front Derby fits well and in accordance with my other pairs on the 401 last. I love the 2-eyelet design as much as I expected I would. Very clean look, very comfortable even standing on my feet for most of the day at work. Very happy with my purchase and extremely happy with the service I continue to receive due to the efforts of Kostas at The Noble Shoe.
Excellent product and outstanding service from Kostas.
Kostas work with me to surprise my husband with a spectacular pair of shoes for his birthday. It was a great experience. He kept my secret, and delivered on time. Thank you so much, Kostas. You are the best!
More so than the five-star shoes, I would like to praise Kostas for his six-star level of service. We initially struggled a bit with fitment (I've only worn work boots and sneakers until recently) but once we got dialed in I placed two more orders in 30 days. I've been known to test people's patience but Kostas has been a true professional throughout the entire process and I look forward to working with him for many years to come. Kostas, brother keep those GMTOs coming!
