    147 | Pink It and Shrink It ft. Lisa Laces

    The quaranteam returns as restrictions tighten in Toronto and we do our best to adhere to public health guidelines, but that doesn't stop the good times, and we brought a guest along for the ride. This week we welcome Lisa Laces, who joins us from Halifax, Nova Scotia, as we discuss another crazy piece of memorabilia hitting the auction block, Christmas trees, and barbering in sandals. Then, because it's Lisa's first time with us, she plays our favourite guest games, 21 Guestions and How Much Izzat, before we get to know more about her during her Solography. After that we learn a little bit about what it's like being a sneakerhead in Atlantic Canada, as well as her feelings about how sneaker brands treat their female clientele.

    146 | Nike Airs And Barber Chairs ft. Anthony De Leon

    Back to your regularly scheduled programming and another Saturday edition of True to Size. This week we get into it with friend of the shoe and barber extraordinaire, Anthony, aka Tito Tons, as we discuss the offspring of two sneaker boutiques, moving to Mars, and Kobe retros. Then, because it's Anthony's first visit, he gets to play both of your favourite games, 21 Guestions, and How Much Izzat. Then, we learn what got him into sneakers, what got him into barbering, and who the unlucky souls were that had to be his guinea pigs when he first started cutting hair.

    144 | Patience is a Virtue ft. Parlor 23

    We're back, and for the third week in a row, we are joined by the owner of a Canadian sneaker boutique; as Bob Ross would say, "that's a happy little accident." Our homie, Jaron, from Parlor 23 in Toronto, joins us for an episode where we discuss old man tendencies, laces, and *sigh* Warren Lotas, again. Then, Jaron runs through the one-two punch of 21 Guestions and How Much Izzat, before we learn about his Solography. After that, we get the story about how he started his shop, the history of the Parlor merch, and what's with all those baby shoes?

    We're back and we brought a friend with us this week; our homie Nathan, the owner and founder of east coast sneaker boutique, Courtside Sneakers. With Nate's help, we run through our weekly segments while simultaneously letting our guest air our his sneaker retail-related grievances. This week's episode also marks the return of "How Much Izzat", as we test Nate's resale knowledge before learning about his life in sneakers. Finally he gives us a rundown on what it's like running a sneaker boutique, what sorts of challenges he faces, and what it's really like having a Nike retail account.

    142 | For Womxn, By Womxn ft. Makeway

    We're back together once again, and it couldn't have come at a better time because this week we are joined by two of our favourite ladies, Abby Albino and Shelby Weaver; the masterminds behind Toronto's newest sneaker boutique, Makeway. We fly through our weekly segments before an interesting round of 21 Guestions, followed by a brief history of how these two got into sneakers in the first place. Then, we learn about the inspiration behind Makeway, where the name originated from, and what they hope to see come of their newest endeavour. These two superstars are leaders in the community, and we are so excited to see them win; and we hope you have as much fun listening as we did recording.

James B Will2 ,

These dudes are just so genuine!

When I discovered this pod, I didn’t know what to expect but...you can tell after a few listens that these dude’s have a genuine connection that maintains when not recording.

If you want to hear natural conversation and delivery about sneakers, this is your pod!

The best part is, they buy what they like, they don’t buy everything just to be “cool”.

There pod is the best way to start my weekend every week!
