Sometimes, I feel like a tourist in my own city. You would think that living, working and studying in Toronto means that I’m constantly checking out new restaurants or unique locations, but it’s not always easy to take some time away from my everyday routine to explore the city I live in! In this series, I’m going on new adventures and showcasing what the city of Toronto has to offer. Say hello to your local #TOurist!
Have you ever picked up a pair of white sneakers and thought, “Hey, what if I painted these?”
At Mackhouse Inc., you can take your shoe design skills to the next level! As Toronto’s most prominent custom sneaker design studio, the folks at Mackhouse are ready willing to take you and your shoes on a creative journey for a couple of hours. Your session includes shoe preparation, design, painting, texturizing, decorating, and sealing for your very own one-of-one sneaker set.

Had some fun with the Air Max 1 Schematic c/o our @niketoronto family 👟🙏🏼 How did Mack House customize ‘em? We added some colour with a painted sock liner + sharpie accents on the details. We tied it all together with black sharpie outlined on the laces to create that sketched look 🖊
The best part? Mackhouse is currently a pop-up shop located in stackt Market! stackt is an urban marketplace featuring trendy, unique storefronts anywhere from two days up to 18 months. Check out the video to see some of the companies currently being featured at stackt!
