While Americans gear up to celebrate the Fourth of July, Canadians are also celebrating their independence.
Canada Day marks when Canada was officially created by joining the provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Canada (which then became Ontario and Quebec). The Constitution Act was put into place on July 1, 1867, which means this year Canada is marking its 150th anniversary.
The United States has had a long-standing relationship with its neighbor to the north, and many Canadians have made their way to the U.S. and become successful in many areas. Here, Footwear News is highlighting the most stylish Canadians you should know, including Hollywood stars, fashion designers, influencers and even our very own fashion director, Mosha Lündstrom Halbert, and fashion editor, Christian Allaire.
There are a few big-name music stars — Justin Bieber, The Weeknd and Drake, to name a few — that have not only made their mark on music but also on fashion. All three are sneaker lovers, but they also know how to pull off a dressed-up red carpet look.
