The Best Streetwear Shops in Toronto
The best streetwear shops in Toronto will give you an excuse to wear more comfortable duds than ever before. With sweats and sneakers at the forefront of fashion (thanks, Drake, Yeezy, and co.), trend-forward alternatives to Roots can now be found in abundance across the city.
Here are the best streetwear shops in Toronto.
The Dundas West flagship for the OVO brand carries exclusively Drake-designed merch. You'll find it stocked with 6 God beanies, OVO branded sweats, plus a roster of ever-changing special edition merch. If you want to look like you just walked off the set of the Hotline Bling video, this is the place for you.
Nomad is an old and faithful source for on-trend menswear. The brand list at this West Queen West shop is hefty, with everything from Canadian labels like Reigning Champ (based in Vancouver) to goods from Japanese fashion house Comme des Garcons. The shop can outfit and accessorize you from head to toe, as the racks are lined with jeans, button ups, hats, backpacks, shaving supplies and more.
Want to support local streetwear? Head to The Legends League. The Queen West shop carries goods designed by artist Bryan Espiritu and are all Canadian-made. It's filled with snapbacks, graphic tees, and sweats bearing the LL logo. Many pieces are emblazoned with Toronto references, like the YYZ snapbacks and Nowhere Turunto shirts, if you want to rep your city.
Community 54 originally hails from New York but has transported its unique aesthetic to two Toronto shops - one in Parkdale and a sneaker focused outpost on Ossington. You'll find a ton of '80s and '90s-inspired goods that would look at home on the set of Fresh Prince, with a smattering of more modern apparel mixed in.
Get Fresh Company supplies the Queen West community with streetwear on the more luxurious side. The shop is carefully curated and is known to carry high-end brands like Kenzo, Saint Laurent and Giuseppe Zanotti. Instead of run-of-the-mill sneakers and snapbacks, you'll find goods like calfskin high-tops, masterfully distressed denim and tops made from organic bamboo fabric.
Livestock is first and foremost a shoe store, carrying rare, limited edition kicks at its Spadina and Roncesvalles locations. Even though the shop is footwear-focused, you'll find a healthy dose of streetwear inside. It stocks camo-printed Nike pants, HUF X NAGEL graphic tees, Adidas crewnecks and more.
Capsule Apparel is a Yorkville menswear mecca that sells some of the top streetwear brands. The Fourness, Stussy, and WHIZ LIMITED are well represented, with the shop touting their tees, jackets and accessories. If you're looking to complete your ensemble with a new pair of sneakers, its footwear-focused Yorkville location carries everything from Air Jordans to Adidas.
Contraband In Yorkville has something for everyone. It stocks both luxury and entry-level brands - so whether you want to invest in something high-end or are a little strapped for cash, it's got you covered. Brands like Black Scale, Reebok Classics, and wings + horns can be found on its shelves.
