Stylish comfort!

I get so many compliments on my new Comunity Made men’s Mateo shoes! They’re easy to slip on and off and they are so unique people ask me about them wherever I go! Treat your feet to some nice kicks, and support a good cause too! A+++



Yeah Kreed! Glad the Mateos are working out for you and we are sure the compliments are well deserved from a styling perspective of course.

The Redesign (official album title)

Repost from the email I sent directly to the ComunityMade crew... I'm going to put this as calmly as I can: I F***ING LOVE THE REDESIGN!!!!!! Seriously, it's so comfortable and so good looking. I already loved you guys, but damn. This is really fantastic. Thank you so much!!!



Great to see you in the shop this week. Appreciate your honest and well crafted review :) Looking forward to seeing you again soon.

What's Not to Love?

The day I got my shoes in the mail, I slipped them on and went for a stroll. These shoes were comfortable the entire stroll and they look great. Of course, the best things about these shoes is knowing that they are handcrafted in the US and some of the proceeds go to a local charity that means a lot to me. Highly recommend and will be a return customer.



What a nice review! Thank you Tim and we hope you enjoy your shoes for a long time to come. TEAM COMUNITYmade


Style Upgrade

I don't typically go sockless or loafers but I love these sporty/funky Matteo's. It's all about the high-quality leather. Good leather doesn't smell bad when you go sockless like canvas (Vans/Converse). A true upgrade to my summer style (and we helped the DTLA community).



It does feel great to go sans socks doesn't it! Appreciate the support and for helping us build a stronger community together with you.

Killer Shoes!

Gold standard quality, fit & style with the bonus of giving back to those who are underserved in Los Angeles - Well Played Comunity!



Ah Todd - you are the best! Thanks for the support as always.

Find Your Perfect Size

We want to help make sure that your new shoes have the best fit possible.  

We have created a separate fit for men and women to provide the ultimate foot hugging comfort.  Our sockliner and upper materials will naturally mold to your foot and stretch out after a short period of time, so do allow for this when trying our shoes on initially.


 In general, our shoes are running closer to an everyday shoe fit vs. an athletic shoe fit and can be worn with or without socks - but the socks have to be eye catching for best results.


Any variances from this chart will be noted on each individual product page.
