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.

New Collection Designed by Our Customers.
Every year we take your input and get to work on new styles, new colors, and more options. This collection is a little different. On a Friday in May, our weekly Zoom Happy Hour turned into an impromptu design session with many of our most dedicated customers. We were physically separated across the map, but united by technology and a mutual interest in creating the unique shoes and boots presented here. Thank you for our boldest collection yet!
Our new collection of men’s handcrafted Italian dress shoes was designed by our customers and features classic dress styles as well as more casual and unique takes on elegant classics. All on a Blake Flex construction and wrapped in premium soft full grain calf-skin leather, hand dyed & burnished. Sizes 5 US to 15 US in “D” & “E” (wide) widths.

In 2018, for months, we worked with our artisans to develop a patina that is understated, yet bold and elegant. The Tramonto Patina was born.
The extra dark burnishing around the entire lower quarter of the shoe gives way to a progressively lighter upper. The result is a dramatic effect reminiscent of the sky's transition from light, to dark. Each Tramonto Patina outsole is dyed to match the upper.
A small and limited run of Tramonto Patinas were made available in 2018, and most have not been available again….until now. If you missed out 2 years ago, don’t miss this short window of opportunity or you will likely have to wait a few years before you get another chance to acquire a Tramonto Patina.
Designed by our customers, our latest handcrafted Italian boot collection features many firsts, including our first Jodhpur & Balmoral boots wrapped in unique material and color combinations.

Designed for Comfort
We believe that a shoe has to look good and feel good. Our dress shoes spent 3 years in development to make sure that we got it right. We started by designing our Ace last for comfort while still maintaining a sleek look. Our focus on flexibility in our constructions is why we call them Blake Flex and Goodyear Flex. Our materials are thoughtfully selected to create a comfortable all-day shoe without a break-in period. From our flexible leather outsoles to the shock absorbing insoles in our sneakers and memory foam cushions in our dress shoes, you’re going to feel the difference.
