In a vibrant metropolis like Toronto, the struggle is real nowadays. Between trying to make your dream life a reality, staying fit, and hanging with friends, the work-life balance can be challenging. But as a productive and driven go-getter, you rely on yourself to not only get it done, but to accomplish it in STYLE.
That’s why you need a fresh pair of kicks that’s as big of a game-changer as you are. PUMA’s new Avid evoKNIT Mosaic is your ideal accessory in leading the crowd and showing everyone on Instagram how to stand out.
With your active, nonstop lifestyle, you can’t afford to waste time messing around. Here are nine Instagram spots in Toronto that are actually worth taking the time to check out in your clean new kicks.
June Callwood Park
Yes, that is an entire park made up of a maze swathed in hot pink. Yes, you will look amazing taking any photo you take here.
Toronto's June Callwood Park, or "Pink Park", is probably the prettiest - and most unexpected - place you'll ever stumble upon. Situated between condos and other buildings, this park is a bright spot in an otherwise concrete jungle. (Okay, there's still a lot of concrete here. But it's pink concrete, so it's cool).
With hip restaurants, buzzing cafes, vintage shops, and fun bars lining its historic cobbled streets, the Distillery District is a prime Toronto location to stroll around (wearing your hot new PUMA kicks) and wind down after a long, stressful week of working towards building your future.
Sometimes you’ve gotta let off a little steam. At Polson Pier, you won't just find quite possibly the most gorgeous view of Toronto's skyline, but also all the sports and entertainment you need to indulge in some well-deserved fun with your crew.
Race your friends at go-karting, challenge them on a Soccerworld field, or network at the upscale Cabana Pool Bar before summer ends. Top it off with a moment spent gazing out at the picturesque Polson Pier skyline view, remembering just how breathtaking TO truly is!
Sure, Kensington Market is technically an entire neigbourhood. But there's no way you've missed this area on your Instagram, and for good reason. Indie shops, boutiques, bars, and restaurants make up the neighbourhood - AKA, tons and tons (and tons) of photo ops.
You're going to want to wear your OOTD and put on your most trendy pair of shoes for this stylish neighbourhood. Also, make sure to buy your Insta bae a drink or something when the day is done. Trust, you guys will be taking hundreds (thousands, maybe?) of photos.
Chasing after your goals and being on the go 24/7 is exhausting, and sometimes you’ve just gotta reconnect with nature and remember what life is all about: enjoying the simple pleasures and reveling in its innate beauty.
That’s where Crothers Woods comes in; especially with autumn quickly approaching, when you can witness all the colourful fall foliage. And to conquer this majestic forest's magnificent, rustic trails? You guessed it! You’re definitely gonna need a good pair of running shoes.
Nathan Phillips Square
Okay, yes, you've probably seen about 100 photos of this popular, glowing spot fly across your IG feed recently. Does its popularity make it any less awesome, though? The answer to that question is NOPE!
Nathan Phillips Square is full of beautiful things to see and fun things to pose with. And also, Toronto is awesome, so you should feel absolutely no shame about wanting to pose with the huge "Toronto" sign. You should also feel no shame in making your Insta bae take about 50 photos of you and said sign until you find the most flattering one.
Toronto Public Library
Okay, you should probably be checking out the library to expand your mind, build your own empire, and stay on top. But while you're doing that, don't let the photo op pass you by - the Toronto Public Library is a gorgeous and unique spot that'll absolutely help you step up your Instagram (and knowledge!) game.
Just remember to be silent and respectful. Not everyone has goals of conquering IG while they conquer intelligence, after all. And while you're there, remember to use the library as a free, unparalleled instrument to learn, reach your full potential, and create new opportunities for yourself!
Plant lovers, where ya at? Allan Gardens is home to one of the most beautiful greenhouses/conservatories in the city.
Make sure your phone is fully charged for this spot - although you might have seen it on your Insta feed a few times, there's no end to the number of unique photos you can take here!
Does Toronto's Graffiti Alley show up on your Insta feed way more times than you can count? Yes, probably. Does that make this spot any less fire? Absolutely not!
Graffiti Alley is a beautiful, colourful showcase of the raw talent that lies in this awesome city. While you're admiring the street art, don your favourite outfit, strike your best pose, and take what can only be described as the most fire #OOTD photo you'll probably ever take, TBH.
Just like this beautiful city, your life is anything but basic. Toronto's got some pretty spectacular places for you to show off your best OOTD, but let's be real here: you're the one who completes the lewk!
Featuring a fully mosaic knitted upper and embroideries with IGNITE Foam for max comfort, the Avid evoKNIT Mosaic is definitely your best bet for adding the finishing touch to your #OOTD photos. You can pick up a pair at select Sport Chek locations in Canada... and prepare for the compliments to roll in.
