High top sneakers have taken over the sneaker world lately and when you think about the various releases we had this year, you don’t need to ask why!

I used to think high top sneakers were only meant for guys with small feet. Eventually, I fell in love with the Air Force Super High, the Rick Owens and many other high top sneakers that wouldn’t normally fit my ”BigFoot Only Wears Low Cuts‘ mindset (shoutout to our size 11 readers).

Today we will overview some of the hottest releases for high top sneakers this month and HIGHLY suggest you to keep them in your man cave for brighter days.

1-Air Jordan 1 Gatorade “Orange Peel

Release Date:12.26.17

Price: 175$ USD

Air Jordan 1s are the undisputed sneaker canvas that made history release after release. Something that really makes this pair standout is when they use the same colourway all over the sneakers.

Never thought Gatorade would have their own spin on the Jordan Brand but as you can tell, they did right! It’s this type of colourway that pushes you out of your comfort zone and ultimately makes you create the greatest outfit you could imagine.

2-Nike Little Posite One “Hey Penny

Release Date:12.02.17

Price: 180$ USD

If you ever doubted the power of the Foamposites you now have a specific reference to go to and ask yourself ”What The Heck I Was Thinking?”.

Nike is known for going hard when they release tribute sneakers and once again they didn’t disappoint. The idea came from a classic ad done by Penny Hardaway in 1995.

Hey Penny” is now a masterpiece you can walk with every day.

3-Reebok Furikaze Future

Release Date:12.02.17

Price: 250$ USD

I hope someone at Reebok gave the designer who thought about this release, the ”Employee Of The Month” title (and a serious bonus too). Mixing two classics together is often risky but the greater the risk, the greater the results (at least here)

When the Reebok Fury meets the Reebok Kamikaze, it’s like when Jay-Z & R Kelly announced their ”Best Of Both Worlds” album:  unexpected but definitely required.

Release Date: 12.08.17

Price: not available yet

You never know what will be released from Nike Lab and when they want to create something outside the box, they come with that fire. Without compromising their effort to bring the best technologies for performance, they stepped up their game with this design once again.

Futuristic, multipurpose and a must whenever you’re going out this spring!

5-Adidas Tubular Doom Sock

Release Date: 12.18.17

Price: not available yet

If it wasn’t for the fact that a real fashion head has to diversify his or portfolio as much as possible, your closet would ultimately be full of trainers.

Comfortable, effective and multifunctional, trainers are an emblem of what our society has become. Back you needed shoes for every particular occasion, the ”Meeting My Girlfriend’s Parents” shoes, the ”Let’s Hit The Gym” shoes and another dozen pairs for everyday occasions.

Nowadays with kicks like the Adidas tubular doom sock, you have one pair for so many different purposes in your life. I mean how many shoes can allow you go to the gym, hit the club and killing it in the streets all in one day?

The End Of An Era And A New Start: Dress To Kill Magazine Goes Digital

A New World Order

Published

on

I hate to break it down to you so abruptly but the world is changing, the world as we knew it, the way we consume, the way we think and even that good old Dress To Kill magazine is going through it.

Read More: Learn About The Black History In Montreal With This New City Tour

As a young and inexperienced blogger back in 2016, I felt deep in my earth that paper was a dying medium and that the internet was about to carry the torch.

a hundreds of blog posts later, multiple attempts at building an online presence and literally trying to digitize the aesthetics & creativity I saw in magazines growing up.

I must admit 2 things: 1. what it takes to make fashion or information enjoyable is very hard to put together and 2 building an audience on or offline is a GREAT feat.

I grew to admire and respect my peers in traditional media because they made the most out of nothing at a time where Facebook and all those outlets were not a thing.

In case you didn’t know, Dress To Kill magazine is not your average magazine by any shape or form.

Promoting Canadian art and fashion from province to province was something seemingly unthinkable but they got it done.

From iconic covers with Lenny Kravitz and more iconic nights at le Mount Stephen to bring the whole industry under the same roof, DTK got it done.

Don’t take what I’m saying as a farewell note because today actually mark a rebirth for the publication.

Indeed, while the world was going all over the place, they went on a well thought out rebrand.

As you might have guessed, the biggest take away from this is the stoppage of the paper version of the magazine.

The focus is now digital but as I told you earlier, DTK doesn’t go halfway.

Their new platform will include an online boutique which once again is going to focus on shedding light on Canadian creators for men and women.

We Ask A Personal Development Coach How To Overcome The Ins and Outs Of The Crisis

It’s all about your point of view

Published

marc dumaine, personal development coach, covid-19

Everything You Need to Know Through The Lens Of A Personal Development Coach

I’m always amazed at how people like to stigmatize the role or relevance of a personal development coach. They’re quick to label it a scam, a fad, something based on nothing but little they did know, they’re coaches around the world who impacts millions and millions of people in a life changing way. I was looking for the equivalent of a Tony Robbins in Quebec, my research undoubtedly came back to the same name: Marc Dumaine.

Mr Dumaine is more than a personal development coach, he’s a man with a story.

Not your average story either. From overcoming alcohol and drug abuse to obtaining a MBA to running campaigns for some of the biggest corporations in this province. Here’s a man of many battles.

Honorable mention too, these days Marc is focused on creating an international platform to impact as many people he possibly can.

The bottom line is this. This personal development coach is not unfamiliar with trials and tribulations, changes and transitions.

That’s why to me, in a time like this where everything is doing a 180 degree, I had to pick his brain and ask him how can you and I get over.

In this Q&A, we indeed ask Marc Dumaine about several things such as how to bounce back from the crisis, his keys to success and much more.

QUESTIONS FOR MARC DUMAINE

#1 How did you figure yourself out as a future entrepreneur and what was the key factor that made you take that route?

I was always an artist at heart and found that I didn’t it in any mole.  After completing my MBA, I realized that my biggest assets were my differences.  I decided at that moment to stop following what people expected from me and launched my own business.  To me being an entrepreneur is an art form in itself. I have never regretted that choice since I launched Asana Coaching 10 years ago.

#2 How can someone go from being self-employed to an entrepreneur making money without physically being there?

The internet is booming with opportunities right now ! Even with the COVID-19, there is a redefinition of the way people consume products and services ! It is a TIME for being creative and look into endless opportunities ! Get out of our comfort zone and start being inspired by people who are already doing it ! Then, build yourself a right game plan with an amazing branding, and you are all set for the best adventure of your life.

#3 What are the pros and cons of being a consultant?

The pros are definitely the freedom it gives you in terms of choosing your schedule, the services you want to offer, the different partnerships you can build and finally, having a real impact in your client’s lives !

The biggest con I think is the loneliness that comes from working on your own and often alone ! You also have the insecurity of never having a stable income.  This life is not made for everybody ! 

#4 What would be the achievement you’re most proud of and why?

The biggest achievement for me is to have never given up ! In my 10 years as an entrepreneur, I could have gone bankrupt a few times, I could have been discouraged for so many reasons… but my faith in what I was doing kept me going ! It is a hard industry where you are competing against so many people and you have to realize that you have never made it ! You have to renew yourself every day, offer the top of the top and always evolve as a human being and expert ! I am very proud to still be there today, stronger than ever.

#5 What entrepreneurs should learn from the Coronavirus crisis?

I think we have to realize that we can’t just keep running all the time ! The anxiety, the stress and the adrenaline are very dangerous ! We talk a lot of profitability, performance but we tend to forget to talk about happiness and well-being ! I hope this time brings more humanity into entrepreneurs’ lives ! 

#6 Where do you see yourself in 5 years from now?

Without wanting to sound over the top, I truly believe that I will have built my brand into an international platform that will include wellness retreats worldwide, TV shows, a one-man show, a few books and real estate projects ! No pressure ! LOL Seriously, I am a kid at heart and developing my business is the best adventure that life has given me ! Watch out world, I am coming. 🙂

#7 What would be the main thing entrepreneurs around the world should learn from you?

That I almost died three times from drugs and alcohol ! That I was the mos unhappy and insecure person for the two thirds of my life ! That i was bullied and rejected for being different ! And in the end, I am the living proof that anything is possible when you don’t give up on yourself and your life ! 

#8 What would be your 3 keys to success ?

1- You are 100% responsible for your choices, attitude, perceptions and mindset

2- There are no mistakes, only feedback !

3- Only accept what’s 10/10 for you ! That is a sign that you are treating yourself life the most important person on your life.

If you’re interested in seeing him in action, he’s doing a Facebook live tonight at 7:30 pm and if you’re looking for some light in these dark times, that’s the place to be.
