They also have a great selection of streetwear apparel for adults and even for kids, which can be hard to find so this is a nice Canadian gem.

Started by friends who idolized Michael Jordan, Stay Fresh began in Vancouver with original Air Jordans and the newest limited edition Air Jordans. Of course they still carry the Jordans, but they now also sell a number of other high-end streetwear sneaker brands including Yeezy, Adidas, Air Max, and more. Stay Fresh is a leader in streetwear apparel in Canada and is actively involved in local community projects and in Sneakercon events around the world.
