Jordan Store 306 Yonge

With so many events going on during the all star weekend in Toronto, it's no surprise that Jordan brand decided to open a pop up Jordan store, which stayed open 24hrs/day for the entire weekend. People started lining up days before to try and grab the latest in JB sneakers and apparel, leaving me no choice but to slap on my 99's early on a Sunday morning, heading out in the frigid weather. A personal shopper greeted you at the door and helped you out with anything you needed, great experience for the city as well as anyone that had a chance to stop by and visit, It's great to hear that the store will open its doors permanently later on this year. 

Sneakers, NBA All Star Weekend, North POV

With 25+ sneaker enthusiast years under my belt there could be lots of things to discuss, but let's be honest, I don't want to get into it all that mumbo jumbo at the moment. Whether your'e a vintage og or new to the scene we're here for the same passion, it is finally nice to see the cdn sneaker culture get love from the rest of the world. Drake's putting up massive billboards in 6ix! it also happens to be right over the new Jumpman23 store opening in the heart of downtown core, the city is buzzing with intense excitement over this all star weekend, hardwood floor in the ACC is ready! feels like yesterday but it's been 20 years since the birth of the Raptors, it's nice to see the team/city get the respect we deserve, those who get to experience some of this weekends festivities will be quite surprised at how prepared we really got for this. Also shout out to the long time family over at solecollector.com for this lil write up they did on myself and a few other cdn cats, talking about sneakers from a north pov.
