Studio D Shoes is a family-run luxury women and mens shoe and accessories boutique in midtown Toronto. We opened in 2015 to create a shoe sanctuary that brings the most exclusive Italian, French, Spanish and Brazilian designer shoes and accessories to the city. We showcase a mélange of styles from vampy stilettos to laid-back athleisure kicks. We pride ourselves on creating an intimate customer service environment by engaging with each client on a personal level.
We’ve built the business over the past five years with a family-first motto. Derrick, the D in Studio D, tastefully curates collections from European designers, blending the desires of his clients with his own savoir-faire. Then his wife Judith and sartorially-minded children, Kelsey and Stephan, give their expert feedback. During Derrick’s trips to Milan and New York he meets personally with designers and vendors getting to know the inner workings of the brands he brings back to Toronto.
We opened Studio D Shoes because we wanted to offer women and men more footwear choices that weren’t on the North American radar. What we have on the market here is incredibly limited compared to what is offered around the world and Studio D stands as a beacon.
We often hear from our clients that we give them what they’re missing at box stores/department stores with a much more personalized approach to fashion and buying.
