The Find: sneakers for showing off your Canadian pride
With the Canadian tuxedo now earning serious style cred, it was only a matter of time before some appropriately patriotic shoes came along to finish the look. Earlier this month, Hudson’s Bay teamed up with Converse to create the ultimate Canadian mash-up: Jack Purcell sneakers (designed by the Ontario-born badminton player) made out of the Bay’s iconic point blankets. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes, the shoes have a signature Jack Purcell smile on the toe and thick wool uppers that will keep your feet toasty this fall. Also on offer: a leather-trimmed high-top, for an extra kick of rugged street appeal. $120–$140.
Available at Hudson’s Bay, 176 Yonge St. or 44 Bloor St. W., thebay.com
