Quality & Craftsmanship Drive Us
We create attainable, handcrafted, ultra-luxury dress shoes and sneakers that come packed with features and are designed for comfort. Each pair is Blake Stitched (Essentials & Originals) or Goodyear Welted (Signature) using only the finest Italian full grain calf-skin leathers for the uppers, calf skin lining, cushioned insoles, and so much more. We will always stand behind each pair we make. Discover all the features in each collection
Fit, Comfort, & Peace of Mind
All of our dress shoes across our collections are built on our proprietary Ace last which is sized according to U.S. Standard Brannock sizing. It reduces common pressure points around the ball and heel of your foot. Combined with our Blake and Goodyear Flex construction and carefully selected materials and comfort features, our shoes are comfortable out of the box--no break-in period! Since we always use the same last, once you know your Ace Marks size, you can buy any style with confidence now and in the future.
Direct to you.
Ace Marks’ direct to consumer business model allows us to offer luxury dress shoes at prices which were previously unattainable. Factory Access allows us to do even better.

Each pair of Signature requires two days of skillful craftsmanship by our most experienced artisans. They are Goodyear Flex construction, and uncommonly comfortable out of the box. We use the most prestigious cuts of select full-grain calf-skin leather finished with our mesmerizing Signature Patina. The interior is lined with full grain calf-skin leather, heel to toe memory foam cushion, and the cork midsole molds to your foot. The leather outsole is hand finished, sealed, and in-tone with the upper. Hand placed gold nails adorn and protect the toe.
Packed with luxury features unlike anything on the market today. Featuring a re-soleable blake flex construction wrapped in premium full grain calf-skin leather uppers & supple breathable calf-skin lining. The memory foam insole molds to your foot. The flexible leather outsole has a notched heel, a rubber insert for traction, and a closed stitch channel that prevents moisture from getting in and increases the life of the shoe. They are light, flexible and comfortable from the first wear.
Handcrafted basics every man needs and can now afford. Featuring a blake flex construction, calf skin leather upper, cushioned insole, and flexible rubber outsole. They are versatile classics easily incorporated into your daily life
