It'd be enough that my Your Turn and Mateo shoes from Comunity are my most comfortable shoes. That alone is reason to invest, maintain, repair and keep wearing these shoes. But add to that the worthy business model, community centered mindset and overall thoughtfulness of this business and the people who created and operate it (and the people and businesses in its network). Add to that how stylish the shoes are. Add to that how I'm not dealing with a nameless and faceless shoe company that wouldn't have a way to care or respond to my soles ripping (and repairing them for free). The people at Comunity are kind, real, and care and contribute to our Arts District neighborhood...add that as well. I know many of us will react to the higher price point and may hesitate, but it's worth the product and what we are supporting when we choose these shoes. Plus, the price is not too high and is actually just fair and priced right -- it reflects the true cost of a pair of well made, good looking shoe that is a product of a sustainable business which gives back to the community. Invest in this shoe and in this business...I expect to buy fewer shoes but to keep wearing the ones I have longer and happier.
Thanks Andy! Your unwavering support of us has been such a gift. We love being a part of the neighborhood and it people like you that get us excited to come to the space everyday. Your heart is so generous - we are better for having met you and look forward to seeing you again IRL soon!
I received a pair of the Men's Traction sneaks for Christmas last year but did not put them on until spring as I did not want to ruin them with the East Coast ice and snow. Well I put them on to wear inside and what a dream. The marshmallow cushioned soles and soft suede uppers make these super nice comfort wise. As for the looks, they look fantastic with Jeans or slacks (I wear the Men's Your Turns with shorts). My 2nd pair of Comunity Handmades were the premium Your Turn. These turned out to be my goto summer shore shoes, great on the beach and Boardwalk. Both pairs can be dressy casual and always get the looks and are unique. All this and they just get better with time.
Thanks for the kind words Kevin. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with us.
