Metro Pop Magazine was a bit of a mystery to me – I went to Chapters with the intention of finding another copy of Lula Magazine (which, since I’ve reported, has never surfaced on a bookshelf again for me), but came out with a copy of Z!nk Magazine and Metro Pop, totalling about $12.50 altogether.


My main motivator for buying Metro Pop was that it was sealed with a mysterious gift contained inside the pages. From my endless efforts to tilt and see what it was inside, I determined it was either a) A Swim Cap or b) Something inflatable because it looked like it had a valve.


And what was it?


Why, a friendly inflatable shoe from Onitsuka Tiger and TokiDoki of course! What an incredible promotion – I’ll forever keep my inflatable shoe. And I got so distracted, I haven’t even actually read the magazine (whoops).
