Subscribe to our emails for all the latest updates. We host shoemaking and other workshops throughout the year! Learn how to make shoes, wallets, candles or other hands-on crafts from scratch. We know there aren't very many options in learning the art of shoemaking, so we aim to preserve this centuries old craft through multiple levels of experience from one-day sandal making courses to six-day sneaker, heel, and boot making courses! Become the shoemaker / cobbler / cordwainer you've always dreamed to be! We work with Brooklyn Shoe Space, Bathke Bespoke, The Shoe Surgeon Shoe School, and more.
Additionally, stop in anytime to learn about our custom shoe program. Choose from any of COMUNITY's shoe silhouettes and select your upper colors and materials, liner color and material, accent thread color, sole type (EVA foam or cupsole), and more! The custom shoe program starts at $600. Add $50 for embroidery. Cost is less if you provide your own leather or other textiles.
On select Saturdays we have an in-house cobbler to assist with your shoe repair needs as well.
