Where to buy sneakers in Montreal? Here is a list of the best in the city.
1. City Styles
There are actually two City Styles on Ste.-Catherine - so I'm not sure which one this is exactly, but they pretty much carry the same stock (10Deep, Crooks, etc.). It's much more urban-focused than OTH so if you're a young buck or planning to film a rap video, this is the place to shop. Huge selection of kicks and some pretty cheap finds on one-off last-size-left heat (i.e. saw a pair of Savage Beast AF1s kicking around). Finally, the biggest selection of fitteds I saw in my time in Montreal. And all of this in sizes too. Staff was pretty helpful as well - we were looking for a Baby G and after not finding what we were after, one of the guys told us about other watch shops on Ste.-Catherine that would have more Baby Gs. He was right because my friend did end up buying a perfect G-Shock. All in all, good staff and huge selection of gear from head to toe. Pretty impressed - if I was a few years younger or was just starting my 'collection', I would have dropped a few paycheques here. 1186 Rue Sainte-Catherine W Montreal, QC H3B 1K1
2. Off the Hook
Off The Hook has always been at the forefront of bringing new and upcoming labels to the city of Montréal, a task the team takes on with their own distinctive pride and excitement. The store offers a pretty wide selection of streetwear, ranging from your usual suspects to harder to find brands. Their website and blog does a pretty good job listing the type of stock they sell, so be sure to check it out before prowling the store. The staff is super friendly and the store is jam-packed with goodies.

MEK was founded in 2009 and carries of range of international kicks including: Hummel, Red Wing, Timberland, Palladium and Saucony Originals as well as Keds PRO-Keds, Sperry Topsider, Converse, Adidas, Onitsuka Tiger and TOMS. If you're a die-hard Nike or streetwear fan, then this is not your store. If you dig Converse then this is your palace. You get the idea.

4. Boutique Industrie
If you're looking for Supra, Vans, Nike, cool limited editions kicks, and obscure sneaker models, then this is your store. Here you'll find off-the-wall sneaker selections that go against the grain. If you like Jordans and Adidas, you'll find rare finds here. Be sure to check out their web site for an idea of what they have to offer. These guys specialize is STYLE over brand name. If something has style, they're sure to carry it.

5. The Fake Store
The Fake Store gives the impression that you're walking in to a bodega, but then you come across a bunch of streetwear and a super limited selection of kicks. Next door they have a sister store loaded with more streetwear. Carrying lots of brands from NY and L.A, plus their very own FAKE brand, this store is loaded with street-savvy for the street culture connoisseur.
