These are very comfortable and look great. However, the tongue doesn't have a lace loop so it tends to slide all the way out of place. I am thinking of putting my own lace loop on the tongue but I'd like it better if they did.
Hello Matt - Thanks for pointing this out to us. As promised, we did make the lace loop adjustment on your pair and have added that as an improvement moving ahead. We appreciate the opportunity to address your concern! Makes us that much stronger moving ahead. TEAM COMUNITYmade
The shoes are nicely made and fit my foot shape perfectly. They are also exactly true to size which is a godsend. Only complaint is that the heel cup is poorly designed. It’s too short and too vertical to hold the heel in place with proper support, even when cinching down the laces. I haven’t had that issue with a shoe before. It seems like the shape was designed without taking into consideration the insole, which raises the heal considerably. Perhaps finding a flatter insole would solve the issue.
Garrett - Thanks for the feedback. We will reach out to you privately to offer you a different sock liner option that should help address the situation you are describing. We are constantly tweaking our fit based on customer feedback so this is helpful! TEAM COMUNITYmade
I mean I can't find a con with these. The outer mesh is elegantly designed, but the part you can't know is how the top feels on your foot. It's silky and almost has a cooling sensation about the material. I put a pair of bright colored laces to help the subtle yellow color to pop in the mesh and it looks great. The soles are firm but pliable, and the insole design is right in line with that pop of color that makes a statement of someone sees them. On that note is how LIGHT they are! The whole shoe is very light for how solid it looks. Overall you can just feel the care and attention to detail. You cannot get this in any box store, this is not a clearance shoe, this is premium and you can feel it.
