About East Coast Kicks

Welcome to East Coast Kicks, where sneaker culture thrives, and dreams take flight. Our journey began with a passion for sneakers that ignited a desire to build a haven for fellow enthusiasts – a place where every step tells a story.

A Passion Ignited:

From day one, sneakers have been more than just footwear to us; they represent a vibrant culture and a means of self-expression. Even during work hours, our founder’s dedication to the sneaker world was undeniable, risking it all to buy and sell kicks on their phone. Eventually, fate led them back home, where the seeds of East Coast Kicks were sown.

A Dream Realized:

Established in June 2017, East Coast Kicks officially opened its doors in January 2018. Fuelled by a relentless passion for sneaker culture, we set out to create an unparalleled sneaker destination on the East Coast.

Unrivalled Selection:

At East Coast Kicks, we specialize in curating the most coveted kicks from the biggest brands. Our selection boasts a wide range of iconic styles, including Jordan’s, Nike’s, Adidas, and Yeezy’s. As sneaker enthusiasts ourselves, we take pride in offering a distinctive collection, often featuring limited edition releases that have flown off the shelves of retail stores.

A Personal Touch:

We believe that every sneaker journey is unique, and that’s why we offer personalized assistance to each of our valued customers. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just diving into the world of sneakers, our knowledgeable and friendly staff is dedicated to helping you find the perfect pair that matches your style and taste. You can explore our collection both in-store and online, and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram to catch our highlighted items.

Giving Back to the Community:

East Coast Kicks is more than just a sneaker store; we’re a beacon of support and generosity within the community. We’ve organized several sneaker drives, donating hundreds of pairs of shoes to those in need. Our Back to School and Boxing Day Sales have become annual traditions, offering our customers unbeatable deals while giving back to the community. We’re proud sponsors of talented athletes, frequently conduct giveaways, and contribute to the Make a Wish Foundation, spreading hope and joy to those in need. We also take pride in helping Co-op students achieve their credits and open doors to new opportunities.

Recognitions and Accolades:

Our commitment to excellence has not gone unnoticed. East Coast Kicks was honored as the Gold Winner for Best Shoe Store by The Coast in 2019, 2021, and 2022, a testament to the trust and loyalty of our customers. Additionally, we were listed among The 25 Best Sneaker Resale Stores and Sites in Canada, solidifying our position as a premier destination for sneaker enthusiasts.
