fluevog "Entertainment District | As my last post for @streetvogs here on the main feed, I visit the Queen Street Fluevog location to do some street work. My first post was done from an outsider’s perspective looking into the Fluevog family and now after these 3 weeks I was compelled to take a photo from the opposite perspective as a symbolic gesture. *here come the waterworks folks* lol

But really, it’s been fun to work with such a great team of people locally and through the interwebs. Literally forcing me to go out there and shoot from different perspectives, I did just that to ensure that you guys got the best snapshot of Toronto that I could represent.

Before staring, I had an idea of the magnitude of what this brand represents and now seeing how many people stop in their tracks to marvel at these wonderful creations, I now understand how these unique soles fit into the lives of the unique souls that own them.

So that’s the end of the ride folks. I must remind you prior to exiting this vehicle that you ensure all your personal belongings are taken and that you watch your step at the bottom of the landing. My name is Ryan Tacay aka @phraction/@phraction_street and it’s been great being your tour guide. Take care and hopefully we’ll see you again soon!” - @phraction/@phraction_street

fluevog "Distillery District | On my last day for shooting for @streetvogs, we come back to where we started in the Distillery to share Rhiannon’s vog story. Having seen the Modvogs Mariella in blue snake print for the first time online, it was pretty much love at first sight. It was a long while before she tried them on but the first reaction when they were on her feet was to simply dance in them. According to the in store Fluevogologists, that’s a sure sign that they’re meant to be. Not wanting to argue with the science behind it, there needed no other convincing and the rest is history.

Apologies that there’s no explosions, tales of betrayal, or anything tabloid worthy in this tale but at least you won’t get that headache from having to put on 3D glasses for hours with your neck cramping up because you got to the theatre too late and had to sit in the front row. Just a simple story of a unique sole for a unique soul but hey that’s what we all came here to see… right? (now’s probably a good time to mention I don’t offer any refunds, though I have one more post in me;)” -@phraction/@phraction_street

fluevog "Little Portugal/Ossington | With my time winding down to shoot for @streetvogs, I wanted to make sure I showcase at least one shot of the soulful cyclists in Toronto. With Toronto also being a cinematic staple lending its streets to more than just cyclists, it's not unusual to see some local landmarks be passed off as being in other US cities. Bonus points if you can identify what movie this restaurant was featured in. Winner gets.. to be right. Hey if that prize isn't good enough, and you'd like to win a sweet ride of your own, why not show off your math mastery with a skill testing question for this certain contest going on right now. Winning won’t shoot you to celebrity status but maybe a contender for being smarter than a 5th grader with a nicer pair of shoes.” - @phraction/@phraction_street 3d

fluevog "Little India | When out shooting for @streetvogs I try to multitask as much as I can by finding something else to do in the neighbourhood that I plan to be in. Little India is my old ‘hood and aside from visiting the folks, the real draw is using any excuse to go to an Indian buffet. Though there’s jewellery, fabric, and 220v appliance stores in the area, I’m not in a rush to put on bangles, a sari or short circuit my place anytime soon. Though the first two would make for one interesting (read fantastic) fluevog selfie post at the end of my run. ;)” - @phraction/@phraction_street 4d

fluevog "Kensington Market | @streetvogs does Throwback Thursday again with a story of a ‘unique soul’ from 2007 (a time before "Humans Of New York" was a thing and I had my own Humans of Toronto interactions). What started out as an errand to return a defective USB drive turned into a photo walk in Kensington Market where I bumped into, Manuel.

Turns out he was a volunteer in the area who traveled around the world buying Bibles in different languages for kids who couldn’t afford one of their own. He also made these paintings to raise money for children with leprosy. Pretty rad guy to say the least, I’d say.

The brief conversation refreshed my appreciation of being able to afford such things as USB drives. Sometimes you just need a guy with a really big painting to remind you how your art can be worth more than likes and followings in this digital age.

With a high-five and a smile, he and I went our separate ways again; unfortunately his contact information fell out of my pocket (remember this was pre-smartphone days) and I’ve yet to give him a print that I promised him. Maybe its time to walk down to that 'hood again and see what happens, if all else fails, the area has great food…” -@phraction/@phraction_street

fluevog "Parkdale | Heading all the way to the west side of the city, @streetvogs shows a city snap of the neighbourhood of Parkdale on Queen St. Having a streetcar that goes right across the city without having to get off is pretty convenient (if you don’t get ‘short-turned’ and have to get off due to a detour). Whether you walk, drive, bike, or transit the city grid is pretty easy to navigate and discovering new neighbourhoods/people along the way is made even better with you’ve got a comfortable pair of shoes on your feet. Having a fashionable/funky pair is a bonus and if you need a recommendation for where to go in the city to find them, we’ve got a couple suggestions in mind ;)” - @phraction/@phraction_street 6d

fluevog "Regent Park | Today @streetvogs goes just steps outside my door to reveal the revitalized Regent Park area. What once was considered a sketchy neighbourhood has now been transformed into a stylish scene with a mixture of cultures and classes. With new developments constantly being completed such as the Aquatic Centre, six-achre park, and the Daniels Spectrum cultural hub, it’s a place where you can safely walk the streets or go for a swim, except for in my case where I’ll probably be splashing around trying not to sink. I think I’ll just stick to the solid streets for now” - @phraction/@phraction_street 1w

fluevog "The Annex | For @streetvogs we feature former Vancouver, now local Toronto actor Karyn (@karyndejong) who I met for the first time at the Annex. Turns out she used to work for Pacific Theatre which coincidentally is sponsored by Fluevog. I figured with all these factors coming together that naturally I'd push my luck and see if she wanted to pose in the middle of a busy sidewalk amidst plenty of people watching because I’m a jerk and that’s kinda what I do sometimes ;) Of the things she loved about the Annex besides it’s character and art scene is the lack of big box stores; posing in front of little boxes seemed the likely thing to do (just thought of that now folks). Admittedly through interesting conversation, I neglected (forgot) to take a close-up photo of her pair of “Presence Notion”. I guess what’s important is the unique souls you meet on the street and having shoes so comfortable that you forget about them completely isn’t necessarily a bad thing either.” - @phraction/@phraction_street 1w

fluevog "Little Italy/College St | @streetvogs goes to the West end of Toronto to walk the Italian way. A place where bold colours and patterns are no stranger to style or on storefronts, this is the place to be to sit on the patio, have a gelato, try an espresso, or anything else that ends in an o or contains an o. Like book, you can read a book there too, it’s obviously ok.” - @phraction/@phraction_street 1w
