Hi everybody! Right now I am in Toronto, Canada.

This place is really special to me personally because Im Canadian

and my mom was born here in Toronto.

Toronto is the largest city in Canada by population and there are about 3 million people living here.

This place right here is called Yongue and Dundas Square.

If youve seen Times Square in New York, you can probably see the similarity.

Its really busy and there are a lot of people, but its super fun!

You get to people watch, you can go shopping, grab a coffeeI like it.

I like to feel the pulse of the city, you know?

People have been living on this land for more than 10,000 years.

In 1793 it was named York by the British Crown

and then, in 1834, it was renamed the city of Toronto.

This behind me is the Eaton Centre. You can find anything in here:

clothing, workout gear, home décor, and shoes.

But Im not going to buy any shoes today. Im going to look at some.

This is a museum all about shoes, and who doesnt love shoes, right?

Ooooh. This is really cool.

The shoe belonged to the Ötzi man 5,300 years ago. That was a long time ago.

During field tests, it was found that the shoe was comfortable

and was effective in temperatures of -5 to -10 ˚C. Thats crazy!

Oh, this looks interesting. It says this is made out of human hair.

Thats something new. Ive never heard of that before, but its quite cool.

Wow. I guess theyre some kind of Renaissance platform.

They dont look too comfortable to walk in, but they look nice.

These shoes I really like because they were worn by Drake, the rapper.

Hes actually from Toronto.

He has pretty big feet, but hes tall, so I imagine that his feet would be big.

This section has glittering footwear from around the globe ̶ and look at these shoes!

Theyre made to look like those wing sandals that the ancient Greeks would wear,

but I think these are a lot cooler because theyre gold and theyre awesome.

I love them.

Boots! My favourite. I cannot get over boots right now. Its my favourite thing.

I would love to wear these because they have a tartan pattern and I really like that.

Tassels. I like tassels.

What I personally like about shoes is that you can express yourself in so many ways with them.

I like a lot of colour. I want my shoes to have colour and patterns and feathers.

I mean, who doesnt love feathers?

I love these ones.

They have some bling on them which is never a bad thing about shoes.

Maybe theyre not for every day, but for a night out? Yeah.

We have this pair.

I just dont think that these are for walking because who would walk in these?

They have four little heels. I dont think you could walk in those at all.

Now this is seriously cool.

These are some of the shoes that were used in the Marie Antoinette movie from 2006,

directed by Sofia Coppola. You might have seen it.

I know Ive seen it a million times at least because its of my favourite movies.

All of the shoes were designed specifically for the movie.

What I really love about these shoes is that theyre really quirky and fun.

The way that he designed them is just incredible.

After looking at all those shoes, I feel pretty grounded right now,

so Im going to do something a lot higher up. Im going to visit the CN Tower here in Toronto.

The CN Tower is 553 metres tall and Ive heard that they have a glass floor up in the tower,

so Im going to go check that out. Lets go.

Were here!

Im up in the CN Tower right now and Im going to check out the view.

Wow. This is amazing!

The city is so beautiful and you can see so much from up here.

I even heard that on a clear day, you can see 160 kilometres away, which is so crazy.

Where is the glass floor?

Its down here.

I found the glass floor! Its super crowded. Im going to go out. Im a little nervous.

Wow. Amazing. Its not as scary as I thought it was going to be.

All the people kind of look like little ants down there just walking around.

Its kind of like when youre on the airplane and youre looking down as youre about to land

and you see all the people, except this feels higher up for some reason.

If you get the chance to go up in the CN Tower,

do not miss the glass floor because this is a cool experience right here.

Im going to sit down.

Yay!

Perfect picture right there.

Today has been great and

Im so happy that I got the courage to walk on the glass floor in the CN Tower.

What is the tallest building that youve ever been in?
