Kith has officially announced its entrance into the Canadian market with its new flagship store opening in Toronto.
The store opens on September 22nd and will carry Kith’s in-house and multi-brand ready-to-wear apparel, accessories, and footwear for men, women, and kids. Customers will also be able to enjoy an in-shop Kith Treats bar and a Sadelle’s restaurant. While Kith Treats and Sadelle’s each have their own respective international presence beyond the U.S., this opening marks their first steps into the Canadian food scene, in Toronto’s Yorkville neighborhood.
To celebrate this opening, KITH worked with New Balance to reinterpret the 1700 silhouette in two new colorways inspired by the city. Each colorway features a premium pigskin leather upper with a padded collar seen on the interior. The Kith classic logo is seen at the rear while each style retains its key elements such as side-panel N logos, branding at the tongue and a rubber outsole. The Roccoco Red colorway will be available this Friday, September 22 exclusively at the Kith Toronto flagship.
Members, please set your Drop Alerts ahead of the online launch of the collection happening on Monday, Sept 25th. This will be the best way to purchase the shoes for retail from Kith.com and CA.KITH.Com.

Kith appears to be making the Yorkville neighbourhood in Toronto the location for its 16th store. While no official announcement has been made, a LinkedIn job listing calls for Assistant General Manager applicants for the new retail store. Kith opened its first store in New York City in 2011 and has since expanded to the West Coast and overseas. The lifestyle and retail concept brand first expanded internationally in 2020 when it opened its Tokyo store.
