Nebuloni Golf Shoes Ordering Guide

Introduction

Unless you are ordering a pair of shoes from our offers page, each pair of Nebuloni shoes are individually handmade at the point of order. As a result, they will take 7-9 days to make and a further 3-5 for shipping, depending on your location.

In our individual custom range there are shoes for Gentlemen and shoes for Ladies, some of which are for both.

The shoes can be ordered for playing golf with Spikes or as dress shoes without spikes. See soles below.

Sizes

One of the most difficult things about ordering shoes on the web is determining the correct size. So we have developed a size conversion chart which may help. If you click on the image below a full size version will be downloaded.

Nebuloni Shoe Sizes

Since our shoes are designed specifically for golf, they come up a little larger than Italian shoes in general.

Widths

Our shoes come in several widths:

  • Narrow
  • Regular
  • Wide
  • Double Wide
  • Triple wide

Unless you take a wider fitting in your usual shoes, then Regular would be fine in our shoes too

Soles

Our shoes can be ordered with one of four different soles: Typically the first two, with spikes, are for playing golf. The plain leather sole is typically when ordering them as a dress shoe. The plain rubber sole can either be used for walking, or maybe for golf training.

  1. Leather Spike
  2. Rubber Spike
  3. Leather
  4. Rubber

Below are images of the soles with spikes. Click on either to download or view a larger version. The plain leather and rubber soles are exactly the same but without spikes.

Extra Spike

If you wish you can choose to have an extra spike in the sole (i.e. 8 in the sole section) in the style of Ben Hogan and one or two others. This option is not available while ordering, but if you would like it, please add a request to the special instructions.

Personalised sole

With either of the leather soles, you can choose to have your initials (maximum 3) stamped onto the arch of the sole. This option is not available while ordering, but if you would like it, please add a request to the special instructions.

 

Spikes

As standard we use ScorpionSTINGER™ soft spikes from Champ Spikes in all our shoes with SMALL-THREAD fasteners.

Should you need to change them, you can choose any spike with the same fastener but you will need a Wrench like one of these to remove and replace the spikes. If you don’t want to do this yourself, very often your local pro will have one, or similar, and will be happy to change them for you.

Leather Options

All of our models, except one – the Classic Ryder Cup, come with at least one leather choice, and some come with two. When ordering you will see Main Leather and possibly Relief Leather. The following table shows which models come with which leather options:

Model Gender Main Leather Relief Leather
Milano Male Toecap and heel Rest of shoe

Classic Male/Female Toecap, heel and laces Rest of shoe
Aristocratic Male/Female Toecap and heel Rest of shoe

Eduardo Male All the shoe N/A
Gail Female Rest of shoe Laces area

Leather Types

Type Description
Calf is a soft plain look leather. It can be used on any part of the shoe but is a good choice for areas of the shoe that bend.
Luxor is a sort of distressed look and medium soft. It can be used on any part of the shoe but works well on the toecap or heel as in this picture.
Patent is a shiny medium soft leather. It should not really be chosen for any part of the shoes that bends since it will crack. It is best suited to the toecap or laces area as in this picture.
Pebble is a grained medium hard leather. It is also best suited to the toecap or laces area as in this picture.
Perforated is a soft drilled leather with many holes. It is also best suited to the relief area of some shoes as in this picture.
Woven is interleaved strips of leather either in one or two colours. It is best suited to the laces area on some shoes such as Saddle or Gail.

Kilties

Some of our models come with a Kiltie (a flap over the laces), notably the Aristocratic and Classic. This Kiltie is only attached by the laces themselves and so can be easily removed if not required.
