What makes a pair of Stan Smith sneakers better? Having them customized by Montreal’s very own Antoine Tava, of course!

There’s nothing better than supporting local talent and looking good at the same time. But sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect shoe locally. That’s why InStock and Station 16 Gallery teamed up with one of Montreal’s best pop artists, Antoine Tava, to bring you a classic shoe with a local twist. The Stan Smith Series showcases TAVA’s newest work of customized classic Stan Smiths.

Antoine Tava is known for his eccentric, cartoon inspired style and especially for those crazy drips. His unique approach has made him a central piece of Montreal’s vibrant art scene, making every product he touches uniquely Montreal and always distinct.

Street wear retailer Instock and Montreal’s best known street art gallery Station 16 will kick off the event on Thursday May 14th, which will run through Saturday May 16th. The details are as follows: 

Thursday, Opening: 6pm – 10pm

Friday: 12 – 7pm

Saturday: 12pm – 3pm
