Gravitypope on 17th ave


You can’t blame us for getting a wee bit giddy when talk about all things gravitypope! Gravitypope continues year after year to feed our retail hunger with products that are amazingly unique and special. The carefully curated brands from Spain, Portugal, UK and Italy keep us all coming back for more.

We just had to take a peek at the brilliance behind gravitypope but to do that we had to go back, way back to first 1990, when Louise Dirks, gravitypope’s founder, seized her calling by opening her first store in Edmonton. In 2000, the demand for a shop in Calgary grew and their second shop opened on 17th Ave SW. Still to this day, gravitypope offers a wide variety of footwear options for all consumers – male and female, young and old, comfort, sporty, and high fashion.  


Whatever your taste, you can bank on gravitypope having the perfect match for your style.  Their carefully curated selection of men’s and women’s clothing, accessories, beauty products and fantastic staff will no doubt meet your needs. Gravitypope’s staff helps anyone who enters their shops looking for that perfect item.  Whether it’s footwear, clothing, a bag, jewelry, socks, gloves, fragrance, or skin care gravitypope has it.
