Great shoes and service

I love these shoes - have gray and just bought white. Also own two other pair of different styles. I was seeking US-made shoes and found these. Shows are very comfortable and stylish - I have received lots of compliments. The service from CM has also been great. Glad I found them.



Thanks for the kind words Jeff! We appreciate that you actively sought out USA Made shoes - you are helping to create a movement. Expect more compliments in the future on your style choices as well as your conscious fashion choices. TEAM COMUNITYmade


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?

New customer - excellent

I’ve been looking for American made shoes for a while. I am so glad I found community made. I received my first pair of shoes last week and could not be happier. The shoes fit really well and I have been really impressed with the customer experience. They help me find the right size via email and were right on the money. They also recommended a suede protector and brush, which I purchased from my local small shoe guy. He confirmed it was a great idea. I have another pair of shoes due to arrive next week and I’m really looking forward to it. The shoes and the overall experience are well worth the price of the shoes. And, I really like to support companies that do things in America.



Hi Jeff - We truly appreciate your support. It means a lot to us and please let us know if we can help in any way! TEAM COMUNITYmade

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!

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.
