When it comes to shoes, every man deserves the best. Unfortunately the luxury industry makes the best inaccessible. But what if you could buy a luxurious sneaker without paying a King's ransom?

At NobleSole we believe luxury should be accessible to everyone and not just the exclusive domain of the few. By leveraging the power of technology and removing the middleman from the supply chain, NobleSole is able to make a sneaker fit for a King but priced for you and I.

We're asking the Kickstarter community joins us on our quest to change the way the luxury footwear industry operates. By joining us, we will be able to fund our latest collection of luxurious sneakers and develop exciting new styles.

We focused on creating a collection of classic sneakers that blend seamlessly with any outfit. By offering high and low top options we have all aspects of your lifestyle covered. 

 Clean and Classic: NobleSole makes a classic sneaker that blends seamlessly with any style. Our shoes are made to last a long time, so we don’t follow fads. Instead we focus on crafting versatile, timeless sneakers that can be worn with any outfit - from aged denim to a pressed suit.  Our goal is to make clean, classic sneakers that will become your everyday go-to shoe.

Timeless Quality: Our durable sneakers are handcrafted in Portugal, using only the best materials. Refusing to compromise on quality, we use Italian calf leathers for the upper AND the lining. Moreover, we pride ourselves in using the same workshops as some of the world’s best luxury brands and can guarantee that our products will long outlast most of the shoes in your closet. In fact, because we use the same leathers found in fine dress shoes, our sneakers will age gracefully.

Comfort and Versatility: It's no secret that dress shoes are stiff and uncomfortable. Even some expensive luxury sneakers are surprisingly rigid and lacking in comfort. For this reason, we have taken care to ensure that each NobleSole sneaker is wonderfully comfortable - making it the ideal shoe for navigating our modern urban environment.

Disruptive Distribution: We’re challenging the luxury industry by cutting out the middleman and the “perceived value” many luxury brands build into their pricing strategies.  This allows us to deliver the best product possible to you at a price that won't empty your royal coffers. 

We've thought long and hard about our rewards and have simplified them by offering all shoes at the same price for the duration of this campaign. 

Please look over the rewards and the pledge descriptions for more details. If you have any questions please post them in the comments section and we will do our best to answer them for you.

             

Brand History: NobleSole was born in Toronto, Canada, and inspired by designer Patrick Cornish’s love of luxury sneakers. The problem with luxury, however, is that it is priced out of reach for most people. Rather than make cheap shoes for the masses, Cornish decided to leverage the power of the Internet to deliver luxurious classic sneakers at an accessible price point. 

As a footwear professional, Cornish had existing relationships with a number of highly skilled workshops in Portugal – including those used by some of the world’s elite luxury brands. After years of research, prototyping, and hard work, the line was developed and the NobleSole brand was born. After initially experimenting with retail distribution, Patrick realized that e-commerce was the only way to keep costs low for the end consumer. 

In stealth mode since last fall, our exciting line of luxurious sneakers has been consistently sold out so we need the help of the KickStarter community to build up our inventory and spread the word. We’re offering backers special pricing on our luxurious sneakers - plus additional discounts for early support.

Join our noble quest and let's made luxury shoes accessible to all!

Thank you.

Sizing:

Our shoes are made using European sizes. Please review the chart below to select your size. 

If you're unsure of your size, place your foot on a piece of paper and mark the tip of your longest toe and the end of your heel. Measure the distance between the two points and match the measurement up to the chart below (if you're between sizes, round up to the larger size).

Risks and challenges

We are happy to say that the risks are fairly low. We have successfully prototyped each shoe and have successfully received shipments from each of our manufacturing partners.

Some of the shoes offered are already in production and should be ready to ship as soon as the surveys are completed. However, for the most part, factory orders are shipped within 2 months of an order being placed. Depending where we fall into the production schedule, the shoes may may take longer to be completed. For this reason, we have quoted a 3 month delivery period. Hopefully it will be sooner but there is a chance it could take longer. If there are any delays we will certainly keep our backers in the loop.

Throughout the Kickstarter process, we’re committed to keeping all our backers informed about the status of the project through regular email updates. Here’s our intended timeline – we’ll be in touch should anything change.

July 2015:
- campaign ends
- size, style and colour survey sent out

August 2015:
- surveys compiled
- factory sent production details

September/October 2015:
- production completed and shoes shipped to North America
- delivery received, sorted and shoes are shipped to our backers!
