This is my third pair. Worth the money. These shoes last and last. Look great. Still have my first pair that i use for MTB and camping. Very odor resistant. Love that they are made here in So Cal.
These shoes are fresh af. So many compliments! PLUS every step is a middle finger to the global-capitalism death machine. Buy a pair. Buy two!

I go the Molino in black....I think it's like the tuxedo of sneakers, works great with casual clothes but also pairs nicely with slacks. Super comfortable and sturdy-feeling. I live on the rainy Oregon coast and the Vibram soles seem to have great grip on wet concrete. Best of all the crew at Comunity Made has been a pleasure to work with and I feel great about supporting their business and charity partners. Highly recommended!
Great choice on the Molinos and love the tuxedo reference as we DO feel they are a fancy sneaker option. Thanks for representing on the Oregon Coast and we appreciate the support. Best - TEAM COMUNITYmade
Amazing! I got the new Men's Molinos in white for my 28 yr old brother who is always on his A+ game when it comes to style, up and coming brands, incredible craftsmanship, etc. He loved them and is already wearing them every day as his new staple. Sean and his team are fabulous to work with and the quality of the shoes is top notch, as well as the amazing design and colors.
Giana - Glad to hear your brother liked his Xmas present - he is lucky to have you as a sister! He is one of the first to sport the new Molino so his street cred has leveled up Kind words like these are the inspiration we use every day when coming up with new styles. Best - TEAM COMUNITYmade
