In collaboration with Montreal’s urban boutique Off The Hook, the first Vans partner store in Canada will open tomorrow at one of the busiest corners in the city. Not only will it offer the best selection of Vans in Canada with more than 1,500 shoes in 160 styles from the Vault, California, Classics, OTW, Girls and Surf collections, but it will also have the exclusive option to make custom shoes (previously only available to U.S. online customers) in-store that will be ready to pick up and wear in just a few weeks. See a few images of the store design in the gallery below.
To celebrate the launch, guests got word of the opening party via laser-etched invitation and a classic Vans Authentic printed in 3D by Consult Design, signaling the long line of thought put into the new boutique.
A two-story QR poster and appearances from Steve Van Doren (son of Vans founder Paul Van Doren) and the lord of Dogtown himself, Tony Alva, were just a few of the treats in-store for lucky guests.
The Vans by OTH Shop opens to the general public 5 May 2011, and If you can’t physically visit, CH has three prize packs (each consisting of one pair of Vans and an exclusive Vans and OTH t-shirt) that we’re offering to the first three people to email Off The Hook at info [at] offthehook [dot] com with the names of the two major streets where the new Montreal Vans store is located.
