Best shoe brands in Canada

ALDO platform summer sandals
A pair of Aldo shoes I found in my mom’s closet, I believe from the 90’s!


We all know and love our beloved Aldo, a Montreal-based footwear and accessory brand.

My mom has been shopping Aldo shoes for as long as I can remember, so naturally I’ve been shopping there for all these years as well!

They offer trendy styles at affordable prices, and their shoes are great quality.

Call It Spring - Nitsan Booties

Call It Spring

Call It Spring is actually a sister brand to Aldo, and they’re more geared towards the gen Z crowd.

They’ve also got trendy and affordable footwear and accessories, and they’re completely vegan!

They’re also working towards becoming sustainable, which I think is pretty cool.

Matt & Nat

Matt & Nat is another Montreal-based company that’s dedicated to producing vegan products.

They’re also working towards more sustainable practices, and have used all kinds of different recycled materials in their products over the years.

How to Wear All Black Without Looking Emo

They actually started out just making bags and accessories, but they now offer shoes as well!

You can find everything from sandals to boots, though they have a lot more women’s shoes than men’s.


Vessi is known for their 100% waterproof sneakers, which are also vegan.

They’re based out of the rainiest place in Canada…

You guessed it, Vancouver — also known as “Raincouver”.

Brave Soles

Brave Soles is a sustainable and ethical Canadian footwear and accessory brand, and they make shoes out of upcycled tires!

They have so many gorgeous pairs of sandals made with locally-sourced leather, all of which also include materials from the upcycled tires!

You can shop both women‘s and men’s footwear at Brave Soles.

They also have a whole collection made with pieces from upcycled aircraft materials!

Alice + Whittles

If you’re looking for even more chic and sustainable shoe brands in Canada, Alice + Whittles is an outdoor footwear brand based out of Toronto.

90% of their materials are fully sustainable and traceable, and their footwear is all free of virgin plastic.

They also source their rubber from sustainably managed forests!

Poppy Barley

Poppy Barley is an Alberta-based footwear and accessory brand, and they offer pieces for both women and men.

Their shoes are ethically-produced using responsible materials, and 90% of their packaging uses environmentally-friendly materials.
