Made to Order: “The Mayor" Women's Sneakers

Onyx Black - Black Cupsole

This urban utility sneaker is 1 of 250 handmade in 2024 collaboratively by Pingree Detroit and COMUNITYmade in our factories in Detroit and  Los Angeles, with locally sourced, sustainable materials, including surplus(upcycled) leather from the Detroit auto industry.

PLEASE NOTE: Your pair will be made-to-order and is handmade and shipped in the order in which it’s received. We have sold out of our spring production run and are currently taking orders for our 1st summer production run that will be made and shipped before July 31st 2024.

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. 

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
  • Standard C Width and True to Size

HOW THEY’RE MADE: When the Fall production run orders come in, Pingree Detroit is cutting each of the 500 pairs in Detroit, doing a portion of the assembly, and then we’re co-manufacturing them with COMUNITYmade in Los Angeles. Our teams are learning from each other and increasing capacity, as a part of this exciting east-meets-west American manufacturing collaboration.

Debated purchasing these shoes and so happy that I decided to buy them. Comfy, well made and just FUN!

First Class!

I am delighted with The Mayor - admittedly I was nervous when ordering them, not sure how they style would really look or if they would be comfortable. I loved the advance emails and communications on when my shoes were started and who was working on them. The personal touch is fantastic. I ordered the black and white pair and they just arrived today...worth the wait! Thrilled with the look and custom feel of the shoes. They are comfortable with minimalistic style knowing that to pull off the clean lines and great design takes intense, detail oriented work. The red accents put the look on another level. 100% hit with The Mayor - thank you Nate and the Pingree crew!


Must have custom-made sneakers with positive impact through the great folks at Pingree.

More than just a pair of shoes

These are surprisingly comfortable and I already received compliments on my first time wearing them. I appreciate the sturdy soles yet the shoes are still really comfortable. I love the whole ethos of this company and I loved getting to know the makers/owners and appreciate their generosity of spirit and community.

Extreme comfort

My wife and I had “the mayor” shoes custom made to match my car and they turned out better than expected. They not only look good are very comfortable. I would highly recommend them.
