The Italian craftsmen at Ace Marks are the same men and women who work for some of the most renowned luxury brands in the world. Their craftsmanship is deeply rooted in tradition and they have been thriving for four generations. Together, we created an attainable, handcrafted, ultra-luxury dress shoe that comes packed with features and is designed for comfort.
Our factory's traditional construction is combined with our innovative design and bold attitude. Ace Marks shoes are built for the modern gentleman. Help us make our SECOND production!
Whether you’re heading a startup or running a Fortune 500 company, Ace Marks shoes make a bold, powerful statement.
Ace Marks is the first and only luxury brand that will buy back its shoes. Kickstarter supporters will be able to send back their old Ace Marks for a $60 credit towards a new full priced pair purchased from our website. We partnered with Career Gear, a leading national organization helping men in need, to donate your old shoes and help men get back on their feet and re-enter the work force. Last year, we donated over $15,000 in luxury dress shoes to Career Gear!
The Luke is a versatile dress shoe that can be worn for your Monday morning meeting, a casual night out and anything in-between. Decorative perforation and broguing details preserve tradition, and novel design curves bring this classic into today. These wingtips strike the perfect balance between traditional and modern.
The Kendrik can carry you through your daily office grind or accentuate your look at the local speakeasy. Whether you choose an understated color block or beautiful monocolor look, these full brogue cap toes scream confidence with every step.
The Aron's contrasting materials and vibrant leather tones make a statement no matter how you pair them. Dressed up or dress down, it won't matter what you wear because all eyes will be on the monks.
The Greg is your best friend. Whether you're grabbing some drinks at a Hamptons soiree or getting better acquainted with your top producers, there's almost no look Greg can't enhance. The leather color combinations are just eccentric enough to be interesting, but not overpowering, and the suedes can make a pair of chinos look fancy.
The Amit goes great with khakis, jeans, and with the right attitude, even a casual suit. Rendered in richly oiled leathers and furnished with a traditional tassel, the Amit fuses a classic preppy style with modern colors and materials.
On the Lorenzo, the beautiful hand antiquing and burnishing of the calf skin leathers truly stand out. The Lorenzo can smoothly transition from a day shoe paired with a suit to a powerful accent shoe worn with jeans.
The Kevin is a Kickstarter Exclusive! They will not be available again! Pair them with khakis, jeans, and a crazy pair of socks and get a bit wild with your look!

Each pair of Ace Marks dress shoes is made with full grain calf skin leather and is crafted, dyed, and burnished by hand. The manual process gives each pair its unique characteristics. Each pair goes through a rigorous inspection to ensure that every shoe is of the highest quality.
Our manufacturing process is done completely in-house. Each shoe takes great precision and skill to ensure the outcome is impeccable.
No middlemen. No crazy markup. Just magnificent shoes at a magnificent price that we will buy back when you're ready for a new pair.
Our disruptive business model goes beyond cutting out the middle man to give our supporters direct to consumer pricing.
We created the Leave Your Marks program to activate the Ace Marks family and incentivize giving back. By sending back your worn Ace Marks Italian Luxury Statement shoes every time you buy a new full priced Italian luxury Statement shoe from www.acemarks.com, you, our Kickstarter supporters, not only get a $60 credit and a great reason to keep your shoe game fresh, you also participate in changing someone's life.
To make sure that our shoe donations are put to good use, we partnered with Career Gear to donate them to help men in need enter the workforce, stay employed and become role models and mentors to their families and communities.
Ace Marks is the first and only luxury shoe company to do this!
Since our first campaign we have donated over $15,000 in luxury shoes to CareerGear and we're excited to see how many more men we can help get back on their feet!
When it comes to luxury, no matter how good your shoe looks, comfort is just as important. Ace Marks shoes are bold, flexible, and light.
We spent 3 years in development to make sure that we get it right, and we spared no expense. Each pair is superbly handcrafted, hand burnished, and packed with features.
That's why Ace Marks shoes:
- Are made from hand-selected full-grain calf skin leather.
- Use a lightweight Blake Flex construction and leather outsole that allows for easy, effortless movement.
- Reduce common pressure points around the heel and mid-foot with our carefully constructed Ace last (a.k.a. forma).
- Relieve stress as you walk with a cushioned leather insole, which molds to your foot over time for added comfort.
- Are lined with supple calfskin leather to keep your feet dry and cool.
Ace Marks was designed for the modern gentleman looking to step up his style and add a bit of swagger. The Ace Marks man is not afraid to be bold in his success.
Quality. We spent a lot of time finding the best artisans in Italy that have the materials, the facilities, the pedigree and, most importantly, the experience to create a world-class luxury shoe. We spared no expense to make sure that you will get only the best.
Affordability. By implementing a disruptive business model that delivers your shoes straight from the artisan's hands to your doorsteps, we eliminate the need for retailers, wholesalers, and other middlemen. The workmanship and luxury you will experience with our shoes is incomparable, at a price that is unparalleled. Less than $200 for a $600-$1,000+ shoe. We did it for YOU.
Communication. Your commitment to us is the start of a long, beautiful relationship. We are committed to you. We will keep our relationship strong by delivering amazing products and communicate with you every step of the way. You will get regular updates as we fund, produce, and ship out your one-of-a-kind shoes. If you have an itch to talk to us, just get in touch any time!
Consistency. Every Ace Marks shoe is hand crafted and hand dyed, meaning that no two pairs are identical. However, each pair goes through a thorough inspection process to assure the quality you expect from a world-class luxury brand.
Experience & Reliability. Ace Marks was founded by a team with a lifetime of experience in the luxury footwear industry. We don't make commitments that we can't honor. We have the infrastructure to assure a smooth process from taking your order thru delivery. We want to be your go-to brand for all things men's luxury, and we will earn your confidence.
We are building more than a shoe, we are building a family. The Ace Marks Family!
