One of Edmonton’s best-known stops for true sneaker aficionados, Hype Fetish is stocked to the rafters with kicks and clothing from collectable streetwear brands, including Off-White, Supreme, Yeezy and Stone Island. The prices aren’t for the faint of heart – these purchases are investment pieces.
One of the original second-hand sneaker sellers, Shoe Shine Shack, is also the place to go when you need those expensive kicks, shoes and boots cleaned or repaired. Whether your need a quick wash of your sneakers or deep clean and water proofing, the folks at Shoe Shine Shack will have your shoes looking brand new in no time. They also carry a small collection of vintage collector sneakers for purchase, along with books dedicated to the mighty sneakers.
If you’re on the hunt for a new skateboard, check out Nowhere Fast Studio. This independent shop sells a small collection of skateboard and made-in-Canada, if not in Edmonton, apparel, such as hoodies and baseball caps.
