During the winter months, our style changes to warmer and cozier clothing. Our go-to style is mostly boots and sneakers and anything that feels loose and comfy. The problem with living in Montreal is that during our coldest season, the choice of shoes adaptable for walking outside is limited.

So how can we stay comfortable, stylish, and sexy during winter, you ask us? We really believe that you should visit the OFF THE HOOK store!

Besides having partnerships with plenty of exclusive brands, many define it as the Mecca for shoes and a trendy lifestyle.

We had the pleasure to be invited to the launch event of Montreal brand, Raised by Wolves, a budding partnership with OTH and Vans.


When we first walked in, we were immersed in that ”How to make it in America” vibe: pumping hip hop music, laid-back trendy people, and delicious treats from Léché Desserts (representing St-Henri so well!).

So what is so special about this partnership? Let’s give you the 411.


The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack has been built around two classic Vans silhouettes, the Sk8-Hi LX, and the Old Skool Zip LX, with various modern twists applied to each that transform both pairs into weather-ready sneakers that merge Vans’ strong relationship with OFF THE HOOK with Raised by Wolves’ modern streetwear aesthetic.


Both the Sk8-Hi LX and the Old Skool Zip LX feature leather and suede paneling, with the left foot constructed from a premium leather upper and suede toe box, while the right foot is constructed with premium suede for the upper and then with leather for the toe box. Both pairs have been outfitted with water-resistant Scotchguard technology, sealed zippers, and gusseted tongues, to ensure that Montreal’s rough weather doesn’t dampen your feet, your mood, or that beautiful smile of yours!

The Vans x OTH x RBW Pack has been outfitted with Vans MTE soles, to ensure maximum grip in slippery conditions. Additionally, the Sk8-Hi LX and Old Skool Zip LX feature reflective Jazz Stripes to make sure that both pairs are as equipped for the night as they are for the day. This makes it a perfect option to go to class and then go out for happy hour afterwards.

Finally, this new creation allows you to wear something uniquely crafted in our city with all the talent and care that Montrealers are known for. What are you waiting for? Go get yourself a pair!
