Want Handcraft Premium Shoes Made Locally in DTLA? Check Out ComunityMade

A growing portion of the population is now being more conscious about the way they consume things. Great quality will not cut it anymore for a lot of shoppers, how the products are produced and the causes the brand supports now also factor in lots of people’s decision-making processes. This is particularly true for the fashion industry where the manufacturing process is wrought with issues of abuse and waste.

As a result, companies like Comunity Shoe are now available. Unlike other footwear manufacturers, Community Shoe has sustainability and community support at the core of its operations. They’re more of a social enterprise than your run-of-the-mill shoemaker, giving you a more conscientious choice when it comes to picking your next pair of kicks.


Sustainable and socially-conscious shoe brands are not necessarily rare nowadays but Comunity Shoe still managed to carve its own space in the market. By specializing in athletic shoes, they provide alternatives to big brand names that most of us turn to for our trainers.

The fact that the shoes by Comunity are locally made by artisans who are well-versed in the ways of shoemaking sets the brand apart from the competition. Each piece is made by hand so you can be sure of the quality and the heart put into every pair. They don’t make empty promises in making a change in the industry as they walk the talk by working with local craftspeople to produce some of the finest athletic shoes in the market today.

Community Shoe is also about commitment. For every pair they sell, they give $10 to their partner organizations. In turn, they get to help community projects of all kinds in the LA area. They work with nonprofits like the People Concern, Youth Mentoring Connection, and Street Poets.


The most exciting part is that you can create your dream pair of kicks with the help of Comunity Shoe. Aside from offering a wide range of amazing shoes, they also accept custom orders. So if you have something quite different in mind that you want to be made by an expert shoemaker, these folks can help you out.
