Full-Grain Oiled Leather
Oiled leather is basically just leather that has been given an intensely nourishing treatment. After the treatment, the leather can contain as much as 15% of its weight in oil. This treatment makes oiled leather one of the strongest types of leather around. That’s why it can be seen used for some heavy-duty boots including motorcycle boots.
Oiled leather can be easily recognized because it is shiny, the color is more evenly distributed and it can be oily to the touch (although not greasy and will not leave any residue on your finger). Note however that thick or shiny leather is not automatically oiled leather.
It is the easiest type of leather to maintain as it does not require as much upkeep. One care treatment per month should suffice (if worn regularly).
Oiled leathers will scuff and look distressed, but with age, that is part of how the leather builds it’s character (or Patina).
To smooth things back up, simply keep a horsehair brush handy with a neutral creme that will help rebuild the leather’s oils.
Known by many names, the McKay aka Blake Stitch method is a stitch down construction where the sole stitching appears on the foot side of the insole and on the outsole bottom. This method wraps the upper leather underneath the foot for more comfort and flexibility. The seam may sometimes be hidden in a groove on the sole’s bottom to minimize
any abrasion from the stitching.

Eco Shipping Initiatives
We Ship with Planet
More than just carbon neutral shipping
How it works?
At Kicks For Gents, we actively offset carbon emissions caused by shipping our products with the help of Planet.
Planet helps us to calculate the cost to neutralize our emissions and donates the Shopify Sustainability Fund.
The Shopify Sustainability Fund
Through this initiative, our contributions are currently funding entrepreneurs whose businesses support our planet by developing technologies that actively remove carbon from the atmosphere!
Reduce, remove, reverse
There’s no easy fix for climate change, and no solution that will singlehandedly solve the problem. We have to try every possible option, from those that leverage natural processes to new technologies that lock carbon away forever.
We need existing solutions that can make a difference now, and emerging technologies that could have a huge impact in the future.
Shopify’s Sustainability Fund pays the early-adopter premium for carbon removal, funding pilot projects and generating demand to kickstart the market and drive down future prices.

What are carbon offsets?
A carbon offset reduces the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere so that increased greenhouse gases elsewhere have a net impact of 0. For example, suppose a truck releases 150 g of CO2 in one mile, and actions to preserve a forest remove 150 g of CO2 from the atmosphere. If you purchase one carbon offset that supports forest preservation for each mile that a truck travels, then the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere remain the same. CO2 accounts for 95% of the climate impact from burning fossil fuels for transportation.

Shoe Size Guide
Fit and sizing is one of those things where we all have a personal preference, some like their shoes tight while others don’t like their feet to be choked.
After years of speaking with customers, we have found some useful sizing guidelines which we hope will help nearly everyone find the perfect fit.
When shopping on our website, you will always find a sizing recommendation in the description.
TRUE TO SIZE
Order your size as measured on The Brannock Device (see below).
This means most will find a perfect fit with their size as measured on The Brannock Device. When new, our True-to-Size footwear should fit slightly snug, but will break-in after a few wears.
HALF SIZE DOWN
Order ½ size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device.
Footwear that will fit best when sized ½ size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device. Half-Down footwear should fit snugly when new, but will stretch and conform to your foot with wear.
FULL SIZE DOWNOrder 1 full size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device.
It’s critical that some slip-on loafers fit extremely snug when new, since there are no laces to further secure them once the leather stretches—and it will stretch considerably. This is why we strongly recommend you order 1 full size smaller than your size as measured on The Brannock Device. This is especially true for those who wear loafers with thin or no socks.
The Brannock Device®
Designed in 1927, The Brannock Device is a standardized way of measuring your shoe size and once you know your Brannock Size, ordering shoes online will be much easier than trying to compare brands for sizing. We strongly recommend getting sized on The Brannock Device when determining your true size. Nearly every reputable shoe shop, and many cobblers, will have The Brannock Device on-hand if you’d like to get measured. Some customers have inquired about buying The Brannock Device online, but it really is best to be measured by someone familiar with its proper operation.
The type of last used determines the aesthetic and ultimately the fit of a particular style.
We use a variety of lasts for different styles of shoes, including those we developed specifically for our collection and a few time-honored American classics.

Hi, i'm Zaman!
I started Kicks For Gents back in 2017 to fix a problem I was having.
You see, after years of wearing sneakers, I found myself in an office wearing hard leather shoes, loafers, and boots. If you haven't tried it already, putting insoles into leather shoes just doesn't work. They won't fit. The real estate inside of a leather shoe is more valuable than in Manhattan or Los Angeles. Unfortunately, orthopedic shoes that allow for larger insoles can be very expensive, disposable, and look a little funny.
In the pursuit to find a pair of comfortable leather shoes, I was not willing to give up style for comfort. The more I searched, the more money I spent on what were either shoes that were comfortable but frumpy or gorgeous but hard. Traditional store-bought insoles were too big for almost all of the shoes and they just don't fit in leather shoes.
Kicks For Gents® shoes are made on special lasts designed to be able to accommodate quality insoles without looking like traditional orthopedic shoes. We accomplish this by leveraging the insights and experience of an amazing team of Pedorthists, Orthotists, and Prosthetists, including Bio-Medical and Manufacturing Engineers in developing our insoles. The result is a collection of insoles that are as comfortable as their thicker store-bought counterparts, but much thinner, longer-lasting, and outperforms traditional foams or cork.
As both a brand and boutique, we make products, but we also sell products from other brands. You can trust that we only support products and brands that align with our values.
As such, our product offering must adhere to at least one of the following criteria: sustainability, repairability, eco-friendly, functional, novel, fair trade, start-up founder, minority owned, or made in the USA.
Our Insoles & Shoe Comfort Technology
After years of research and development I leveraged the insights and experience of an amazing team of Pedorthists, Orthotists, and Prosthetists, including Bio-Medical and Manufacturing Engineers.
While our insoles take many forms, the result are insoles that are as comfortable as thicker insoles, but much thinner, they last longer than traditional foam or cork, and they come with a host of other benefits, including antimicrobial properties.
A COMMITMENT TO ETHICAL CRAFTSMANSHIP
Every pair of Kicks For Gents has been designed to be long lasting while using high quality materials and modern comfort technology. Built to last, our kicks are repairable to avoid the landfill!
Why Limited Inventory?
Manufacturing shoes in small batches reduces the waste, energy and fuel consumed when overproducing shoes that might just sit on a shelf, go to a discount outlet or, worse, be destroyed.
Limited inventory allows us to keep overhead minimal. We ship from a small office and can adapt more quickly to bring you what you want.
Quality over quantity, it's that simple. Small batch manufacturing allows us to adapt more quickly to customer demand. Whether it be adapting to changes in shoe innovation, design, or materials, we are constantly testing the waters.
Leather is just like skin. Without moisturizer, it can dry up and even crack. Since our shoes are handcrafted at the time a customer places an order, this ensures that the leather isn't sitting around getting dry in a warehouse or on a shelf.
Comfortable Shoes Make People Happy!
Our lineup includes modern and classic styles made from quality materials.
