Made to Order: “The Mayor" Men's
This urban utility sneaker is 1 of 500 hand made collaboratively by Pingree Detroit and COMUNITYmade in our factories in Detroit and Los Angeles, with locally sourced, sustainable materials, including surplus(upcycled)car seat and steering wheel leather from the Detroit auto industry.
EVERY STEP MATTERS: Each pair has character and purpose. Just like the people who make it. Right here, in the United States. Designed and meticulously crafted with care to last a lifetime. Able to be resoled by our team in Detroit when the outsole wears out. Tough enough for year-round adventure, comfortable enough to wear every day.
PLEASE NOTE: Your pair will be made-to-order and is handmade and shipped in the order in which it’s received. Every pair will be made and shipped before March 31st 2023.
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 the USA
- 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
HOW THEY’RE MADE: When the orders come in, Pingree Detroit is going to cut each of the 500 pairs in Detroit, do a portion of the assembly, and then bring them on a train from Detroit to L.A., where we’re going to co-manufacture them with COMUNITYmade. Our teams will be learning from each other and It’s going to be an exciting east-meets-west American manufacturing collaboration.
