You know I have lived in TO for a couple years now and still have no idea where to get things. Also I know I could order things like this online but when it comes to shoes I prefer to try them on because I have weird mutant feet, also few places have womens size 5.

Basically I'm looking for a store that would carry White Thigh high boots, I would prefer to have a chunky heel then a pointed heel if possible cause I know I will fall on my ass. Also if I'm able to get really choosy (which I probably can't) Prefer them to be in a white Matte (or leatherish) rather then a shiny PVC.

A friend suggested some stripper stores.. but I don't even know where those are, so I come here.. I hope someone will be able to help me ! Anything in Toronto or Toronto area.

Thank yoU!

There's one store that carries 'dancing shoes' on Yonge street north of College, on the east side; I believe it's called 'Kleen-Air' (I have no idea why it's called that). Shouldn't be too hard to find, it has all sorts of crazy stripper shoes in the window. I don't know if they'll have what you're looking for, but that's the only one I know of.

There are a few big stripper shops on Yonge between the Eaton Centre and Bloor. I think Seduction is one of the biggest, and I think it's closer to the Bloor end. Might be worth just going for a stroll one afternoon?

The only "thigh high" white ones that Seduction carries are white PVC vinyl and have a spike heel, and the entire thing is on a 5" platform... I was just in there a couple of days ago... I had time to kill :thumbsup:

RIDICULOUS impractical... The ones my sister used only had a 2 inch platform and a 3" heel. But we got those off eBay

*chuckle* ouch!!

But I'm glad someone could provide more recent info than me...I haven't done the stripper-shop-walk in a couple of years.

Still, there are several places along Yonge there, you never know where you might find what you need. :)

Whoa Spiked heel those aare damn high!
Yeah I would break my ankle.
Its too bad that thigh highs have a bad rep of being stripper boots :P
Maybe I can just get black faux leathery ones and paint them white... seems all the white ones are shiny..

Thanks everyone so far for all the help :)

Damn woman! You and I have to opposite problem, I take a Womens 10 wide, (That's 12cm across!), not to mention having overdeveloped calf muscles that are 49cm around. -_-" I rarely find nice shoes that fit or are inexpensive. (read: "I shop with the drag queens").

If I come across somewhere that has interesting stuff in your size I'll definately let you know, since I know how frustraiting it can be. -_-"
Cheers!

I was on Yonge Street today and found an store that carries all kind of skanktastic boots, platform shoes, thigh-high boots, goth boots, etc. Boots with chunky heels, stiletto heels, some with laces in front....

The address is 594 Yonge St- it's on the west side of the street, just north of Wellesley (right across the street from Seduction).

Most of their stock is on sale (up to 70% off)!

Archangeli...do you know the name of the store or how long their sale is on for? I need some boots for a costume I'm making (evila - space channel 5), and the only boots I've found locally that would work are over $120. The sale sounds really good, so I'd like to see how soon I should be getting a bus ticket to Toronto. ^^

I have no clue how long their sale is going for. There's a big banner-flag outside that says that the store is having a closing sale. When I asked the sales girl for a business card she said that they ran out o_0"

I don't know is everything is on sale but their selection of "funky boots" is better than most places I've seen. There's also a store 3 doors down that sells *cough* "leather and pvc apparel" that migh also have some footwear. (I didn't go in to check). But the store I went to today is right across the street from Seduction, which is *the* skanktastic store on Yonge St ;)

:D I'm trying to avoid going into any skanktastic stores anytime soon, so I'll probably try to make it down to the less-skanky one sometime next week if I can afford to. I'll just have to hope that they're still open by then. ^^

If you're in the area, Dixie Outlet Mall (mississauga, but close to the QEW) has 2 shoe stores that carry thigh highs of all styles/colours O_O

Ali BaBa and...
I forget this one starts with a C, but they are 2 shops apart.

Okay, shoe-wise on yonge street, your best bet is to go between bloor and dundas on yonge street and stop in... in the spring it's good weather and it's a good way to see them all.

I can't recall the name of the one(s) at yonge and wellesly... they're on the west side of the street and there's one just north and one just south of it. As the one just north (I think it was called foot Xpressions) you can always negotiate prices - I managed to deal over 30% sticker price on a pair of Swears.

Just south of yonge and bloor there's another place that has the thigh-high boots you're looking for.

Another set of places is just north of yonge and dundas, though their stuff is more Docs and Undergrounds than the white boots. Still worth a look.

Seriously, start at bloor, walk down to dundas and explore... they're pricey places, but they're a costuming mecca for stuff you're willing to shell out for

(and Queen street west from university to bathurst is a secondary source of good stuff).

Well, on Wednesday I went to the store (the one with the closing sale) across the street from the skanky one (Seduction), and I found that their SALE price for the boots I want was $18 more expensive than the regular price of the exact same boots at Dynamic shoes in kitchener. o_O;

I guess I'll be paying $120 after all.

Yeah, all those sales are bogus... generally speaking you can negotiate prices though...

Yeah, $138 was the negotiated price. That was the lowest she would go. I think the sale price started at $159 or something (and that was apparently 25% off), but I can't remember what was on the tag. >_>

Wow... can't say I'm too surprised though... unless you really can't get it anywhere else, most of those places are overpriced for already-overpriced shoes.
