What is Factory Access?

New Styles and Exclusives

During Factory Access, our factory doors are opened for you to discover our artisan’s latest styles, colors, and constructions. It’s our chance to showcase everything that we’ve been creating without limitation. Most of it will never be available again.

Community First Approach

Ace Marks was created for you, and we listen. During factory access we all have an open dialogue about what you like, don’t like, and what you would like to see from us now and in the future. We act fast, and we will make community suggested styles & colors available for sale during the campaign. Be heard, with Ace Marks.

Shop at Preferred Pricing

Factory Access pricing is a fraction of the retail price. Producing and shipping a large number of orders at once without having to purchase inventory significantly reduces our costs. We pass these savings on to you! Using this type of business model allows us to truly make a luxury dress shoe at a fraction of the retail price.

Included with Every Purchase
Free Extras

All orders will receive a free accessories package.

All orders will receive a free accessories package added to your order. Included in the package is a free pair of shoe laces, shoe shine brush, polishing cloth, travel shoe horn, and cotton shoe bag.

What We Stand For

Our mission is to empower through access to luxury. That’s why 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.

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.
No Mark-ups

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.
