Find Your Sole Mate at Shoes.com’s New Toronto Showroom

TRY BEFORE YOU BUY AT ONLINE RETAILER SHOES.COM’S LOCAL SHOWROOM

Shoes.com-Showroom-Store-Queen-West-Toronto

Recognizing that most people are hesitant to purchase footwear online because they’re uncertain about sizing, a popular Vancouver-based retailer, Shoes.com, has come up with an innovative solution: a showroom where would-be buyers can try on an assortment of shoes and have them shipped directly to their home or hotel (the company promises delivery within two hours in the city). The Canadian outfit’s first bricks-and-mortar shop on Queen West carries a range of brands—nearly 500 can be found on their website—ranging from dressy labels like Badgley Mischka, Valentino and Cole Haan to more casual styles such as Frye, Sebago and Ben Sherman. Shoes.com’s in-house line, Hardy Design Works, as well as the complementary sock line, Richer, Poorer, can also be found in-store. Shoppers are encouraged to visit the boutique often—every six weeks a new theme is unveiled, featuring different brands and looks.  —Linda Luong Luck
