The rare vintage and second-hand sneakers in Toronto don’t always get the spotlight compared to the limited-edition drops and all-new models you can find at some of the city’s best sneaker stores. But true sneakerheads know they’re some of the hardest shoes to find.
Here are stores to find rare vintage and used sneakers in Toronto.
Go way beyond black and white with vintage trainers from this Danforth East store. They stock 1980s and 1990s styles that you’ll want to keep an eye out for so no one buys them before you do.
While in Kensington Market, stop by this spot to find used, lightly worn, like-new, and new sneakers from brands like Yeezy, Nike, Air Jordan, and Adidas.
You’ll find a nice selection of used Jordans at this store near Yonge and College, and you might also find used Nikes, Adidas, and Yeezys. They also sell a lot of streetwear and collectibles.
Adidas, Nike, Yeezy and Jordan are stocked on the shelves of this store with a location on Queen West. Complete your fit with choices from a selection of streetwear from the same brands, plus others like Puma, Reebok and Champion.
Several locations in this store operate on consignment, but mostly accept new sneakers, so you can pick up all the rare Nikes, Jordans, and Adidas you need. If something from any of these brands is on your list, they probably have it.
