The top 5 new shoe stores in Toronto

Toronto's top new shoe stores have a little something for everybody. Strewn across the city, these spots differ in stock and story - each one catering to a particular niche. So, whether you're looking for a platform, fancy stiletto, double monks-straps or designer duds, they've got you (and your feet) covered.

Here are my picks for the top new shoe stores in Toronto.

Smoke + Ash
West Queen West boutique Smoke + Ash (previously known as Sauvage) is a fashion minimalist's dream come true. Though it's mostly stocked with truly unique (yet wearable) women's clothing, the shoe wall is teeming with ultra-sleek footwear to go with any outfit -- like Jeffrey Campbell mules and Senso slides.

Kiton, one of the world's most expensive menswear brands, opened in Yorkville just a couple of months ago to offer Torontonians $20,000+ suits and the shoes to go with them. Their house brand footwear covers anything from swanky sneakers to luxury loafers, but a soon-to-open Santoni Shoes within the space is guaranteed to take it to a whole 'nother level.

Park & Province
After a year of peddling menswear and apothecary to the stylish and well-groomed, Park & Province finally opened a brick-and-mortar right by Trinity Bellwoods. Their clothing is curated to a T with quality brands you may or may not have heard of, and their shoe selection covers anything from classic New Balance sneakers to Thorocraft oxfords.

Studio D
For women's footwear with flair, Studio D at Yonge & Eglinton carries (mostly) Italian brands like Missoni and MSGM for the uptown girl with more edge than your average. The many bedazzled stilettos may be first to catch your eye, but their selection of printed sandals and pumped up kicks from $195 - $875 are definitely worth a second look.

Q&S plopped itself right in the heart of Queen West, offering a slew of hard-to-find European footwear at reasonable price points. Find both men's and women's shoes for every occasion, including comfortable, everyday flats by Caprice, workwear shoes by IMAC and flashy pumps by Hรถgl.
