Milk Toronto

Milk Toronto is not a store dealing in dairy, though the number of milk crates inside might suggest otherwise. 

A clean boutique with a playful vibe, this milk-themed streetwear and sneaker purveyor is where shoe connoisseurs shop for pieces more distinct than the latest footwear trends.

You're less likely to find the latest drop at Milk as you are to snag some sweet one-of-a-kind samples that he's been sitting on for years.
