About this project

 

 


From incredible comfort to exquisite durability, Carlos by Carlos Santana Shoes for Men are designed to turn heads, embrace your funky sense of style and give you the confidence to be the best “you” that you can be. 

Each stitch is constructed with the perfect mix of traditional “Carlos Santana flare”. Every piece of leather, shoelace, and sole embody what it means to live a life of style.

  

 

 

 

 

  

 

The outer sole material options consist of full leather, two-tone leather, leather with a rubber insert and Dainite Studded rubber. Why these material options? They provide the shoe with the quality and strength needed to last nearly 20 years with resoling. Our shoes are detailed down to the *sole.

 

From the inside out, Carlos by Carlos Santana Men’s Shoes are designed with you and your impeccable taste in mind.

  

 

 

There are three Carlos by Carlos Santana Men’s Shoe collections to choose from. The Goodyear Welted Luxury Collection, Goodyear Welted Essential Collection, and the Blake Construction Fashionable Collection.

Take a look at the different styles offered in all three collections. You'll choose shoe style, color and size after the campaign. All you need to do right now is choose which collection you want in the rewards section to the right.

We carefully searched high and low for leather that was tough enough to last through all of your adventures, but soft enough to feel comfortable for all-day wear. Finally, we came across the exact type we had been looking for. 

When you order Carlos by Carlos Santana Shoes for Men, you have the option to choose between full-grain leather and calfskin suede for the upper area of your shoe.

 

 

 

From work to play, Carlos by Carlos Santana Shoes for Men provide you with comfort all day, every day.

To ensure our shoes are comfortable enough for all-day wear, the leather-lined cushion insole absorbs moisture inside the sole to further allow breathability. The specially-designed heel cushion gives you arch support during long wear for maximum comfort.

 

Every single one of our shoes goes through a rigorous, five-stage quality check process before packaging to ensure everything, down to the last stitch, meets our high standards. We’re so confident that you will love your shoes, we’re giving you a one-year warranty for any manufacturing defects that may arise.

 

 

 

 

Having to constantly re-tie your shoes throughout the day is a nuisance, as is re-lacing after a nice polish. That’s why our lace-up shoes come with unique wax-dipped laces. These laces help your ties stay taught and make it much easier to re-insert your laces after polishing or cleaning your shoes.

All of our shoes, no matter the style, collection or color, are handcrafted by skilled artisans who care about providing incredible quality as much as we do. Take a look at this detail-oriented process that lets our artists use their hands and a minimal amount of machinery to ensure each stitch is up to standards.

Handcrafted best-in-construction and material allow us to redefine ‘Luxury’ into ‘Affordable Luxury’ with an efficient supply chain and low overhead. We directly source all our raw materials from the manufacturers to control cost, availability, and quality which eliminate extra layers and middlemen. 

We go directly from the Tannery or component manufacturer to our factory. From our factory to Market Place. Then we deliver to our customers.

All of our shoes are made at a family-owned facility in Spain and India. We specifically choose to work with them as they provide the best manufacturing practices and ethical working conditions.

Most dress shoes today use the glue method when creating shoes. This method might last for a few seasons, but eventually, the glue will start to disintegrate and the two areas that are supposed to be glued together split. Our hand-stitching process eliminates this problem.

Our main video explains the shoe construction, and also address cost benefit of pasted vs. stitched shoes

We know you shouldn’t have to pay an excessive amount of money for this type of craftsmanship, which is why our men’s shoes are more affordable than our competitors and are built to last. Take a look at our unique process from start to finish. 

 

We care about the packaging for Carlos by Carlos Santana Shoes for Men as much as the shoes themselves. We’ve spent hours constructing the perfect box that is as fashionable as it is functional while embodying everything about Carlos Santana. Each box will also come with a special thank you card.

In addition, each backer will receive free Metal Shoe horns, and an extra pair of laces and a pair of leather insoles with every Shoe!

Risks and challenges

Each pair of Carlos Santana’s signature line of men’s shoes are crafted with the perfect mixture of classic, hip and fashion-forward style. Carlos is known for his guitar solos and his casual, yet fashion-forward style, so we ensure every stitch, style and color are influenced by the legend himself. While there are always challenges that can arise when producing a new product, we are confident in our ability to deliver on time! If you have any questions, feel free to message us.
