Cop the best feet heat up north.

Canada is renown for its beautiful terrain and happy people. What some may not know is that it also has a booming sneaker scene.

Due to the meteoric rise of music artists like Drake, The Weeknd and Justin Bieber the world has begun to pay attention to the country’s unique demographic. A wave of retailers have refocused their efforts on getting products into the country supplying the Canadian streetwear scenes.

Ladies in cities like Montreal, Vancouver and Toronto will now be able to grab the shoes they need from stores, old and new, dedicated to keeping their customers satisfied. We’ve rounded up six of the country’s best sneaker shops for locals and shoe tourists alike.

Community 54

Community 54 has led the way in Toronto opening up a store dedicated to women. The store holds women’s lifestyle apparel alongside its curated shoe picks. The shop has a welcoming atmosphere with employees who are trained to get ladies the gear they need for the harsh Canadian seasons.

Address: 216 Ossington Avenue, Toronto, ON M6J 2Z9, Canada

Exclucity Montreal

Exclucity is a stronghold in the Canadian streetwear scene. Its Montreal shop has a spacious, streamlined design that can hold a crowd on drop days. Women can look here first to find any exclusives from Nike, adidas and Puma.

Livestock Chinatown

Vancouver’s Gastown is home to good Pan-Asian eats and Livestock’s largest Canadian store. You’ll be hard pressed to not find new drops and debuts from any of the major sneaker brands. To match its size, the stock is also large, increasing the chance of shopping success.
