New Arrivals

Get out! Out of the city that is, and off to some sunny beach destination where the only place you’ll fill sub-zero temperatures is in your beer cooler. With spring break, march madness, reading week upon you there couldn’t be a better time to get away from this never-ending winter. Whip out your duffle, throw in some polos, swim trunks, sunblock and one of these mesh, water resistant, shoes by swims and you’ll be set. Swims are casual enough for a game of volleyball on the beach, yet formal enough for a nice night out on the town. Their unique construction is guaranteed to give you comfort while keeping your feet dry, and odour free.

Check out these great new styles for your next tropical vacation.

Let’s put some spring in your step and shake off those winter blues with our latest, vibrant, collection of new arrivals from New Balance. Known for their exceptional quality, and fashion prowess these retro sneakers are a definite must-have for Spring. These aren’t just any “regular” New Balance kicks, in an effort to distinguish ourselves from other North American stores and New Balance USA we went straight to the European and Japanese markets to pull some exclusive styles just for you. Outside of those two markets, Canada is the only other place where you can get your feet into these 420 Classics. Hurry before we run out!

As the weather heats up you’ll most likely be outside every chance you get, from hanging out at patios, going for bike rides or simply exploring the city on foot. No matter your summer activity you’re going to have to invest in some great summer shoes. Ones that will maintain your style identity while keeping you cool and comfortable. Just for this very occasion we’ve put together some great options for you to consider, some you might be familiar with and new ones worth knowing.

Maians Sisto Combi Shoes: $$120

Detailed craftsmanship meets urban street style: this is the Maians formula, and it’s what characterizes each deftly assembled pair of our unabashedly good-looking shoes. Created by one of Barcelona’s most consummate designers, Alfonso De La Fuente Rey, each pair of Maians is handmade locally using regional material and vulcanized rubber: a painstaking process that results in a unique brand of footwear that is dashing, durable, and incomparably comfortable.

Luigi Sardo Classic: $60
Luigi Sardo Classic-Mid Gray Jersey: $70

Luigi Sardo is the latest addition to the Gotstyle family. Markus Lacaria (Founder) started Luigi Sardo in 2008 while living in Southport, Australia. Inspired by the beach culture and popularity of canvas shoes, Lacaria designed shoes that embodied the Australian lifestyle he adored. After years of preparation and hard work, Lacaria’s project came to fruition in mid-2011 with the release of the debut Luigi Sardo footwear collection, which showcased the Sardo Classic model. For SS13 we’re carrying the classic white canvas tennis shoe & the gray jersey Sardo Classic.

Take a moment and ask yourself, what do your shoes say about you? As we all know,  shoes are an extension of ones style and much like anything else we adorn it speaks volumes about our character before we’ve even had the opportunity to uttered a word. So, are you the hipster, the maverick, or the Bay St tycoon? No matter how you identify yourself, you’re a multifaceted individual and your style should reflect that.

Just like you wouldn’t necessarily wear a 3-piece suit to the grocery store, why would you wear the same pair of shoes to every occasion? Mixing and matching is a great way to breath new life into your daily style, not to mention having options automatically increases the lifespans of the shoes you own. It’s time for some spring cleaning and while you consider replacing or adding to your collection, we recommend you check out these great new arrivals from John Varvatos, Ted Baker, Matteo Massimo, Wolverine, Luca Vero, and Tiger of Sweden.
