HEY TORONTO! THE FIRST SHOES.COM STOREFRONT IS OPEN

 

Our first EVER retail pop-up store is officially open in Toronto! That’s right, we’ve jumped from online to offline and right into your neck of the woods. 

Taking up residence at 356 Queen St. West, our first retail appearance will feature a curated selection of brands that includes our very own private labels Hardy Design Works, Pika and new kid on the block—Richer Poorer.


 

We're bringing our online digital experience to life with private label brands not previously available offline, and two-hour delivery of in-store purchases for the Toronto area. If things don’t work out between you and your shoes, you can easily return them in-store.



"Most people use clothing to express themselves, I prefer to let my shoes tell the story."
- Nikki Laing, buyer at SHOES.COM

 

Private label Hardy Design Works is set to create a stir with pieces like the leopard print 'Ware' shoe-boot.

We spoke to Nikki Laing, buyer at SHOES.COM and SHOEme.ca about the statement shoe of the season: "The Ware Shootie is one of my personal favourites from the Hardy Design Works FW15 collection. Most people use clothing to express themselves, I prefer to let my shoes tell the story."

Our in-store theme will change every six weeks, with the forest theme celebrating SHOES.COM literally landing in Toronto's neck of the woods. Watch out for the New Year when we will bring our favourite Canadian brands to life. While our first brick-and-mortar retail experience is in Toronto—we have plans to expand to the U.S. and of course, our hometown of Vancouver in 2016.




Many Torontonians may already be aware of the SHOES.COM coffee takeover on the streets of the city where our bright blue coffee truck has been driving around for the past two weeks offering passers-by a complimentary coffee, a $25 gift card, and a chance to win free shoes for a year—simply respond to The Great Debate – what do you call your city: TDOT or The6?

So far the nickname results are neck and neck. That's right, Drake may really have changed the city’s brand forever. To top it all off, our coffee is some of the best the West coast has to offer, coming all the way from Bows & Arrows Coffee Roasters in Victoria, B.C.

If you can’t make it to the pop-up shop in Toronto or simply want to see what’s on offer before you head down there, fear not—the collection in it's entirety can be viewed right here.

Find us at: 
356 Queen St. West,
Toronto,
ON M5V 2A2.
