(Shoes and wigs?)
Yes. Shoes and wigs. That's what's on offer on Yonge Street's Shoe Time.
This is one of those places that always has a "closing" or "inventory clearance" sign in the window, but never seems to close. Shoes are cheap, and not hideous. In the summer, imported sandals go for as little as $5. Nicer pairs go for $10 to $20 (or more, depending, but most are highly affordable).
Sure, these ain't no Louboutin's, but they're not bad either. Man made materials? Yes. But that's okay. Most of Shoe Time's stock is of the "fashion" or "fad" variety, so it's not like you're going to wear it forever even if it did last that long. If you're looking for club wear, or novelty shoes, or just some foot fun, this is a good place to try.
As for the wigs (of which there are many), ignore them. OR, if you're brave, buy a super long blond one and bust it with some neon purple plastic ankle boots. (Sometimes, if you're going to do a look, you might as well do it all the way.)
