All aboard the SNKRS XPRESS!

In celebration of the NBA All-Star weekend in Toronto, Nike has transformed a TTC streetcar into a shoe store/mini museum that is a sneakerhead's dream.

After boarding at SNKRS XPRESS Station (277 Queen St. W.), riders can shop a curated selection of footwear and check out historic styles from the DNA Vault as the streetcar cruises the area for 25 minutes.

"It's a celebration of Toronto's sneaker culture," Nike store athlete, Mark Nabeta, tells HuffPost Canada Style. "It's a great experience to just be able to get on and be part of a Toronto icon, which is the streetcar, and also take part in sneaker culture and enjoy All-Star weekend in your own special way."

Riders are given a "boarding pass" with an assigned seat, and can peruse several different styles, as well as get their kicks cleaned by Jason Markk reps at SNKRS XPRESS Station. Any purchases can be picked up when the ride ends.
