SNKRS XPRESSHop aboard the SNKRS XPRESS that's rolling its way into Toronto for the NBA All-Star weekend.

To celebrate basketball and the new Jordan Brand Store at 306 Yonge St., Nike is transforming a TTC streetcar into a bona fide sneaker boutique for Nike+ members.

Nike says the SNKRS XPRESS station will be located at 277 Queen St. W. And, you can book your spot on this souped-up streetcar from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. between February 11 to 14.

According to Nike, this mobile shop will offer, "a curated selection of footwear including the Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit, Air Jordan XXX, Jordan Cement IV, Kobe 11 Royalty and several surprise drops." Toronto isn't the only city getting a SNKRS XPRESS; Nike is also bringing this pop-up to New York, Chicago and Los Angeles.

At the new Jordan Brand store (opening this week), members can access the Jordan Standard immersive experience as well as the 306 Underground VIP, which will include personal shopping and barber services.
