Sneaker Pimps- Le Studio Juste Pour Rire

Sneaker Pimps hit up Le Studio Juste Pour Rire on Saturday Feb 9th. As with every other Sneaker Pimps event put on by Nike; it was expected to have a good time with a great display of kicks. Indeed it was. On decks spinning some tunes was Hatchmatik and A-Rock from Peer Pressure and there was to be a live performance by Black Sheep.

Yet trouble at the border, kept him from appearing. Live artist installations were done be by Futura, Stash & 123Klan. There was also a Nike Dunk anniversary and Nike SB on display on hand. Above and beyond Nike's installments there were all brands on display. All shoes are unique in there own form. Most have been altered, making the displays more art of fashion. I've posted a slide show, with only a few of the hundreds of shoes on display...


For any sneaker freak, it was oh so nice. Is there a freak in you?

Hi Anne, ! well, Montreal is a tough place to get sneakers that are unique, limited, or in the collection worthy category. Believe it or not. Yet it is slowly growing, as the culture does exist here.
Here's 3 places that I frequent, & have a good selection of diverse unique kicks.

GOODFOOT - 3830 St.Laurent Blvd.
La GODASSE -3686 St.Laurent Blvd.
(my fav)
OFF THE HOOK -1021 Ste-Catherine Ouest.

there are many small apparel places that carry some designer rendition's of shoes, (Marc Jacobs, Stella Mccarthy, Alexander Mcqueen)with takes on global brands such as Nike, Vans, Adidas, and PUMA. Yet it's more to compliment the apparel; rather then focus on the shoes.
hope this helps!

Those are straight amazing! I am a huge fan of Nike Dunks. They are so simple and I hope to get some of those for my kid. Maybe I can spring them on her as a belated christmas present. Keep up the good work. Excellent post!
