If my trip were a book, this would be chapter 1! Livestock is a store that I could have easily never seen had I not been walking down Abbott Street. Who would have thought I’d end up here out of all the streets? What first caught my eye was technically my ear. I could hear some music floating out of their open door as I walked by. It was none other than Common! I knew that whoever was working there, and chose that song, had to be a cool guy. I was totally right. Behind the counter was Stan, seriously without this guy my whole first day would have been aimless wandering. I really want to take a moment to thank Stan and Livestock for pretty much welcoming me into Vancouver.
I noticed that they stocked the Hundreds and HUF some local SF brands! Oh and their shoe display was super awesome! They really embraced that concrete/industrial look. The shoe stands were almost like rebar poking out. Very cool!
Up close of their shoe display. The frosted glass below gave off a soft light and made it look very futuristic.
Stan and his partner hooked it up big with some Livestock stickers and pins that I will be sure to share! Thank you so much!
Stan was super helpful and explained where a lot of similar shops were to me and he really pointed me in the right direction. If you’re out there reading this your advice seriously made a huge difference in my travels. You never know who you might meet and a simple “How’s it going?” can go a long way. Livestock is a boutique store I would recommend for any sneakerhead or streetwear enthusiast to check out in Downtown Vancouver!
Here is a link to their website! Enjoy!
