Ladies, sneakers aren’t just for the dudes anymore! Here we round up the best places to get sneakers for women in Toronto.
(In no particular order)
323 Queen St W
Groovy has a unique selection of shoes, including a vegan line. They also carry the
adidas star wars, Dr.Seuss and Marimekko converse collections. Any limited edition
collection can be found here, especially if you’re a converse ﬁend.
1010 Queen St W
Gravity Pope has a wide selection of kicks to appease any preference. They sell
adidas, Alexander McQueen puma, comme des garcons PLAY, and any colour
converse you can imagine. They also have shoe closet staples like puma and vans for
the more sentimental sneaker buyer. If you want to browse and try on a variety of styles,
I’d suggest coming here to get your ﬁx.
Not be confused with solely workout gear, these brands have some really edgy sneaks
for everyday wear. Jordans for the ladies have reached popular demand with celebs
like Riri and Chanel Iman rocking them to match their signiﬁcant others’. If you’re less
into the baller trend, adidas by Stella McCartney, the adidas original high tops, or
the Nike air force 1 lows premiums or the Nike dunk sky high’s are worthy additions
for the sneaker obsessed.
1200 Bay St
For those following the heel wedge trend, Capezio is a must. They carry both sporty and
casual styles, reminiscent of the Isabel Marant originals with way better prices.
This store has pretty much anything street wear related. Although it appears to strictly
be for men, when buying a pair of runners, androgyny rules. Livestock carries retro
Saucony’s, Reebok’s and for high top aﬁcionados, The Hundreds. Deﬁnitely a place
for the girls to get their sneaker ﬁx on.
