Eclectic Kick Shops

Livestock Sneaker Boutique Focuses on Limited Editions

— August 3, 2009 — Fashion
Deadstock: A term for shoes that have never been worn and are still in the original box with their original laces.

Livestock is the opposite of this, suggesting to wear the shoes you love, skate them, party them, and get them dirty.

“Kicks are for wearing,” is their slogan.

Pop culture seems to share in this shoe fetish; footwear seems to be everything nowadays, especially elite, collectible, limited edition sneakers which are being issued across the world. Re-Issues of “old school” models are particularly hot right now. Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Converse,and Vans.

Sneaker collectors spend thousands of dollars hunting down limited edition shoes by any means possible, but usually via the web. But to walk into a shop that is dedicated to the love of shoes is refreshing and worth the hike. You can find out almost everything you need to know from the knowledgeable staff.

Livestock is one of the only sneaker boutiques I have ever stepped foot in, and anyone who loves shoes in any flavor will love the simplicity and quality of thought put into this shop. It’s great for the sneaker collector looking for rare finds or the average stylish Joe looking for a dope pair of sneakers.

In 2004, Vancouver was ready for a shop like this, and within a few months, it was opened. It’s a pretty new shop that opened in the heart of Gastown, located on 239 Abbott Street.

Livestock has hosted several art shows displaying local and international skate, street, and culture art. Thanks, Livestock, for opening up such a dope shop in Canada supporting local art and assisting in local style!

Livestock has opened several locations across the country and is now named Canada’s number #1 Sneaker Boutique. In fall 2009, watch for Livestock’s Annual Block Party to hit the streets of Gastown!
