The team at Comunitymade built a pair of slightly custom Westrider 2.0's for me (Optic White) and I've been wearing them for about a month now. They almost immediately broke in, so I decided to put them through the gauntlet: a three day trade-show with a half day of travel on each end. Honestly, I was a little leery, because I typically wear a pair of high-end running shoes for these kind of professional 'marathons' (I have very high arches, and the wrong amount of support causes back pain). Well, not only did the Westy's look amazing and garner a thousand compliments - but they also kept me COMFORTABLE through three 10+ hour days on my feet. Trade shows are the holy grail for footwear, and mine passed with flying colors! Couldn't recommend more highly, and will wear them even more now that I know how comfy they are!!! PRO tip, though: during the break in period they may squeak at the heel when you walk. Just add a touch of petroleum jelly to the back of the insole and VOILA - Silence!
Andy - Hah - trade shows truly put shoes and feet to the test. Hours of walking on hard floors and endless conversations are not for the faint of heart! Thanks for the great review and we will dig into that "squeak" issue you mentioned! TEAM COMUNITYmade
These are perfect. I hope you don’t change anything about them…. unless of course you can make them even more domestic. I’ll probably buy a new pair every year. :) Thank You.
We are working hard EVERY day to make our shoes even more domestic. Knowing that we are able to provide local jobs in the community is so important and we are constantly pushing every supplier we know to at least move some of their supply closer to the customers. Your support and desire means a lot to us! Best - TEAM COMUNITYmade
These sneakers are absolutely what I was hoping for. Sturdy sole that should provide long lasting wear and support. Leather upper fit like a glove my size perfectly. Nice touch with the leather laces which pulls everything together. Bonus with part of sales to support charities!
You are going to love your Westsider's for years to come and we know that the charities appreciate your support too! TEAM COMUNITYmade
Fantastic shoes. They fit unbelievably well and have a distinct look. Being hand made in DTLA is unique and a great story. I'm planning to get another pair soon!
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We are very proud of making our shoes in DTLA and appreciate you calling that out. Look forward to hearing from you again soon. TEAM COMUNITYMADE
I bought my first pair of westsider 2.0s in May in white for summer and like them so much i just ordered a second pair in black for fall/winter. the materials are awesome, the fit is great, super comfortable and i get compliments on them every day. looking forward to adding to the collection.
Glad to hear you are a compliment magnet and that your second pair is bringing as much joy as the first! TEAM COMUNITYmade
