A Modern Classic

I’ve been wearing COMUNITY sneakers since they were first made available, and in that time The Traction has become one of my favorite, go to sneakers. If I was judging by looks alone the Traction would still be one of my favorite sneakers due to its understated, land beautiful silhouette. Thankfully it’s much more than a pretty face. The Traction is incredibly comfortable right out of the box, and they only get better as you wear them in. Ive had one pair for about 18 months and not only do they still look fantastic, they’ve held up exceptionally well. I’m sure its due to the quality materials & craftsmanship. A great shoe supporting great causes. Whats not to love?

Another great pair!

These are my fourth pair of shoes from Comunity and these men Traction are as great as the rest. Very comfortable and stylish! A high quality product that, made in America, from a company that gives back to its community means I’ll buy from them for a long time (and continue promoting to my colleagues and family).



Thanks Tim - we are lucky to have supporters like you!

Great shoes

Love the brand, love the story, and love the shoes. Very comfortable and the comfort has held up well over time - I have had my shoes for over a year and despite wearing them to work most days, they still provide good support and comfort. Style works for me as well. Ran quite true to size for me at a sz 12.



Dave - Thanks for being a champion of COMUNITYmade. We love that you took the time to share your thoughts with us. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

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.
