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.
