The best boutiques for active people in Montreal

In Montreal, one moves! Gyms, bicycle paths, climbing gyms, parks, pools ... it’s hard not to be moving. And for each exercise, there is the right clothing – comfortable to move in and to sweat in. Here are some good places for all your sportswear needs.

Lululemon Athletica

1232, rue Sainte-Catherine O, Montréal, QC H3G 1P1

Any good yoga enthusiast knows the Lululemon clothing line. This Canadian brand (from Vancouver) has built its reputation around technical clothing that is suitable for stretching it out on the mat and is all the rage today among Montrealers. We like the quality of the fabrics used and the flattering cuts.

Cordée Plein Air La

5190, boul Saint-Laurent, Montréal, QC H2T 1R8

Besides tents, skis, snowshoes, mountaineering accessories and bicycles, Le Yéti offers an inventory of clothing, shoes, and bags, sometimes technical (Patagonia, Salomon and The North Face) and sometimes trendy (Kavu, Prana and Royal Robbins).

Boutique Endurance

6579, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2S 2S1

Because there is no better way to find out if the shoe fits (literally!) than to trust the expert advice of Boutique Endurance's employees, this address has quickly become a go-to place for running, walking, and multidisciplinary training.


4075, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2W 2M7

Innovative fabrics, sophisticated details and technical creativity. Lolë proves that it is possible to be stylish, even when moving. We love the attention to small details, which lends a comfortable-chic style to the clothing. Moreover, with Lolë clothing, you can go easily transition from the gym to the grocery store in style.

Boutique Courir Montréal

4452, rue Saint-Denis, Montréal, QC H2J 2L1

Every runner knows that proper equipment is essential for comfort and performance. Boutique Courir ensures you get what you need, with a wide selection of footwear, apparel, equipment and accessories for running (of course!), but also for walking, cross-country skiing, triathlons and cycling. But most importantly, competent consultants and personalised service will help you find the right products for your needs.

Mountain Equipment Co-Op

9001, boul de l'Acadie, Montréal, QC H4N 3H5

A true Canadian shop specialising in outdoor equipment – mainly climbing, mountaineering, skiing and hiking – Mountain Equipment Co-op is (as the name suggests) a consumer co-operative. You must be a registered member to shop here, but the minimal lifetime membership ($5) is well worth it, considering the large inventory of technical clothing available on site and the best price guarantee.

Since we can’t all fly south to escape the cold season, some of us have to find other means to deal with the weather. And what could be more satisfying than spending the day in pajamas, wrapped in a blanket, catching your favourite series on Netflix when it's cold and rainy outside? Check out these establishments to equip yourself for a serious session of cocooning.
The days are starting to get shorter, the leaves are falling calmly from the trees, and the temperature is beginning to drop.
