A chance to pick up a bagel-inspired shoe is on the brunch menu for sneaker lovers in Ottawa.
NRML on Rideau Street and Stomping Ground on Bank Street are hosting pre-sales for Nike’s new “Montreal Bagel” shoe this weekend.
The shoe pays homage to the city of Montreal and its iconic bagel.
“You know the saying: the sweeter the bagel, the sweeter the dunk,” reads the description on Nike’s website.
“Bringing fresh-baked style to the streets, this design finesse has you ringing in the colors of carb lovers, plus a dash of Montreal blue for added recognition to the city from the beautiful province.”
Nike says the shoes are “adorned” with sesame seed graphics and finished with a gum-colored sole.
“It’s satisfyingly easy to style, because everything looks better on top of a bagel.”
NRML was originally going to release the shoe on Sunday morning, but moved the release up to Saturday morning. There were still pairs of “Montreal Bagel” shoes available at NRML as of Saturday night.
Stomping Ground at 728 Bank Street will begin selling the “Montreal Bagel” shoes at 10:30 am Sunday, with a limit of one per customer.
The shoe sells for $160 in Canada.
Dozens of people lined up outside the Off the Hook store in Montreal on Friday to buy the shoes during an early release.
