the art piece

Titled "Pacific North Weave", the illustration cleverly weaves recognizable Vancouver landmarks together creating an inception-like landscape. As Carson puts it, "From afar it almost looks like a fabric, but up close you can see all the individual landmarks."

Not only is this this a co-collaboration with Vancouver-based car share company, Evo, but the art resides in two places, each with original renditions. The featured piece is a mural located only steps from our store and the in-store original "replica" is located, you guessed it, in our store at 151 Cambie St.

the charity

Carson has a special affinity for bunnies. To him, they don't get enough love, so fittingly he has chosen Vancouver Rabbit Rescue and Advocacy for his charity. 6.04% of each shoe sale will go towards that charity. If you look close at the "Pacific North Weave" you'll notice a fair share of rabbits in the piece.
