Since Sam James opened the doors to his first location on Harbord St. in 2009, his coffee shops have become known as some of the best places to find good coffee and good company in Toronto. Not only is the coffee always perfect, his shops are always extremely well-designed, warm, and friendly.
Having recently opened his newest location on Toronto Street, Sam James is elevating the city’s coffee game. Pretty much everyone who works at Sydney’s have been loyal customers for years as we love supporting local businesses (not to mention great coffee).
The Hand Sewn Low is a luxury handmade version of the classic court sneaker. This FEIT interpretation features FEIT’s advanced Goodyear construction, all natural materials and unlined raw edges.
Each pair includes both square leather and cotton laces.
The Hand Sewn Low is built by hand from start to finish by one master craftsman using an advanced Goodyear construction technique that produces a superior shoe
The seamless one piece upper of the shoe is made from a single piece of vegetable tanned leather, hand stitched at the heel. The Gusseted tongue reinforces the waterproof construction. Leather is left on the last for 10 days where light steam and humidity are used to tighten the leather, ensuring shape and fit. Buffalo leather is used for the footbed.
The leather is dyed with natural pigments so that the hide retains its natural state and ages richly over time. The superior construction technique and use of natural materials ensure that the shoe breathes and does not retain sweat or odour.
An extra cork and buffalo leather insole is included with each pair to assist with in-between sizing.
Whenever we find ourselves on Dundas West in search of a cocktail or a bite to eat, Mr. Flamingo is always one of our top choices.
Jointly owned and operated by Mikey Apples (who also owns Bambi’s) and Fan Zhang, Mr. Flamingo offers a good selection of cocktails, wine and an assortment of bar foods elevated by Fan’s French cooking skills and some very opulent ingredients.
After dinner, stick around for disco, house and obscure dance beats from one of their resident DJs.
We highly recommend the mulled wine and lobster-baked oysters.
