All Marc Nolan shoes are made from calfskin leather, full grain leather, sheepskin suede, or a combination of each. We choose the highest quality materials so our shoes are made to last.

We use higher leathers, internal components, longer lasting rubber soles to construct our shoes. The soles on our shoes are cemented to the upper with glue. We choose this method of construction to provide our customers with accessible prices without sacrificing quality or style. For more about construction and materials used, these details are available on each product page underneath the product description.

All Marc Nolan shoes are designed in Chicago, made from leather sourced from different parts of the world. We work with small factories in Guangzhou, China – some of the same ones that produce your favorite designer labels. We visit them multiple times a year and build personal relationships with the owners. With these direct relationships and running a lean operation, we are able to keep our costs down and deliver premium quality shoes without paying for typical luxury markups.

Every pair of Marc Nolan shoes comes with a shoehorn to help preserve the back counter, and dust bags to prevent damage in storage or when traveling. We recommend inserting wooden shoetrees after each wear to preserve overall shoe structure and condition. Shoes should also be routinely polished to ensure leather remains supple and well moisturized.
