This is it. Don't dilly-dally. This is your time to show the world your own unique sense of design. The launch of Fall Fashions is typically an exciting time for designers from around the world to present their new lineup. What are you doing right now? Could you conceptualize your own handmade shoes with the help of the skilled craftspeople at COMUNITYmade. Well? What are you waiting for? Let your design spirit soar!
It's Easier Than You Think
A long time ago, if you wanted to be a shoe designer, you'd spend many years as an apprentice doing extremely fulfilling jobs like sweeping the cobbler's nails off the floor, sorting scraps of leather, and cleaning up sticky shoe glue from just about everywhere.
If you were diligent enough and lucky enough, someday in the far-off future, you might learn how to make leather shoes. Eventually, you just might have permission to pick your own color or pattern. The folks at ComunityMade have changed all that.
All you need to do to get started designing your own pair of shoes is to make an appointment. For everything else, a team of artisans will guide you through the entire design and production process.
Mere Shoe Decoration Vs. Custom Shoe Design
There's a world of difference between decorating an existing shoe with some basic online tools on a website and creating a fully custom shoe design with your very own specifications. But hey, if a few decorations are all you want, then you might as well pick up some markers and some nail polish and get at it.
Here are some of the reasons why true trendsetters choose custom-made:
COMPLETELY ONE OF A KIND
Social media is filled with people bragging about the "custom" shoes they designed online. The trouble is way too many of these “designs” are slight variations on the identical theme.
A little splash of color here and there on the same basic shoe is only "quasi-custom." The shoes you design with COMUNITYmade will be truly unique. They aren't just a pair of off-the-shelf kicks with a little dab of color here and there.
Have you ever had your foot measured by a footwear expert? And no, we're not just talking about one of these from The Brannock Device Co.
Your feet deserve better than that. Remember, your feet are just as unique as your hands, so give them their due. If you had your hands stuffed into factory-made torture devices, you'd be pretty picky about how they fit.
You wouldn't believe how much science and research goes into the tread design
for different shoes. The goal is proper grip, and this depends on exactly what surfaces and what forces will be involved.
It might sound silly, but when you consider how many falls occur because of shoes slipping, you'll understand why it's so important. And by the way, purpose-built doesn't mean boring. These moon boots from NASA
spawned a whole shoe trend for boots back in the day.
IDEAL FOR ANY OCCASION – EVEN WEDDING PROCESSIONALS
Yup, that's what the walk down the aisle is called, a "Wedding Processional
" . Why not look your best for that special day? Or, maybe you'll be called up on stage to receive an award, and you can bet just about everyone will wish they were in your shoes. It might be a graduation ceremony with everyone wearing those identical gowns, but your shoes can cry out your individuality. You can have a perfect match for your special occasion.
THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS
High heels or high-top custom sneakers? Radical new shoe styles or traditional bespoke shoes? No matter what you dream of, you can turn it into a reality with a pair of custom-handmade shoes of your very own design. And did we mention how much fun you'll have? From the shoe fitting to the shoe findings
, you'll have a great time exploring how creative you can be.
HANDCRAFTED LASTS LONGER
When you start with the best hand-picked materials, durability is built-in. The extra attention to even the smallest details at every stage of construction guarantees you get the high quality possible. The time-tested performance of natural leathers and the finest in high-tech composites are carefully combined to give you the support and toughness you want.
GIVING BACK TO THE COMMUNITY
Not only will you feel like part of the family when you work together with our team of craftspeople, but every pair of custom shoes you buy will mean a portion of the proceeds goes to help support a charity of your choice.
