Shopping: First Dr. Martens Store in Canada

Fall is upon us, and just like many others, I am embarking on a new footwear search. This year I vowed to buy something practical for Toronto winters, something sensible, with a stylish kick. And after visiting Canada’s first standalone Dr. Martens store at 391 Queen St. West, I think my search is over.

The shop’s walls are lined top to bottom with different styles and colors of the iconic grunge-fave shoe, and the whole feel is like being in a candy shop – just take your pick. There are girly shoes – with floral and paisley designs (my fave), the “originals”, the “Made in Britain” pairs, and some not-so-Doc looking Doc Martens. I was also told that most styles available worldwide will be sold at the Toronto store…all neatly lined up under one roof.

I also got to see the Spring 2011 lineup of Docs, which included the below pony hair leopard print styles, which I believe were made in collaboration with Opening Ceremony, some cute pastel ones…even gladiator wedge Docs! It’s pretty safe to say, that if you’re looking for a specific pair of Dr. Martens shoes, the Queen St. store will have them.

Most shoes retail between $100-$200, which is not a high price to pay for a comfy, well-made, classic boot. The company is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, so make sure to pop by and say “Happy Birthday!”.
