WAIT- LIST (CLICK HERE): “The Mayor" Sneaker, Brown


This urban utility sneaker is hand made to order in Detroit with locally sourced, sustainable materials, including surplus(upcycled) leather from the Detroit auto industry. 

PLEASE NOTE: Pingree Mayors are made to order and currently we are making 10 pairs per month. Thanks to this amazing community of support we have hired more footwear apprentices and have SOLD OUT of all production runs for 2022. We are beyond grateful and honored by the support we are receiving. PLEASE ADD YOUR NAME HERE TO OUR FOOTWEAR WAITLSIT to be the 1st to know as soon as more pairs become available.  

Each pair has character and purpose. Just like the people who make it. Right here, in the Motor City.

Designed and meticulously crafted with care to last a lifetime. Able to be resoled by our team here in Detroit when the outsole wears out. Tough enough for year-round adventure, comfortable enough to wear every day. 

The leather used on your Mayors will have a texture and shade that may vary slightly from the leather pictured since your pair is crafted with small batch leather reclaimed from the production of new cars.


  • Designed and sustainably handmade in Detroit 
  • Sidewall stitched so we can resole your sneakers
  • Crafted with Nappa leather reclaimed from the Detroit auto industry
  • Uniquely numbered- your Pingree Mayor is yours and yours alone

    Worth the Wait

    Great quality, great style, and I felt the communication was very good throughout the process. Will be looking to purchase additional merchandise for sure.

    The BEST shoes

    I randomly ran across Pingree Detroit from a Ford Linked In post, where they described what happens to their unused leather. Brilliant idea to upcycled, and even better when I found out about hiring vets in downtown Detroit. Sold.
    The shoes look every bit as good as in pics. Fit and finish are from a Lexus or MB. Comfy, but stiff at first. Absolutely no regrets, will be checking out their other products soon.
