A Review About What Happens When Shoecare Products Really Work!

Thanks to our collaborators and longtime partners, Sole Exchange Canada, we got our hands on the latest shoecare products by Moneysworth & Best.

We’ve received their different range of products and we’re happy to say that the name ”Moneysworth” definitely stands for something.

We had different shoecare products to try out. We had the Gel Cleaner, the Shoe Wipes, the Water + Strain Protection and the Freshner Spray (truly necessary after our experiment).

At Montrealgotstyle, we’re always thinking outside  ofthe box with whatever we do. So for our review we’ve tried a an experiment that would make any sneakerhead’s hearbeat stops.

We took your BBQ’s and summer cookouts’ favorite ingredients such as ketchup and chicken marinade and we went all out. Believe it or not but we poored both on a pair of jordan 11 bred (my own pair by the way).

As you can expect, the final result was a mix of an undetermined smell and a nervous look on my face when I could barely see the sole of one of my favorite pair of jays.

At that point, I was literally crossing my fingers and wishing the shoecare products would actually work. Today, we will give you a full review of our experiment with the shoecare products by Moneysworth & Best.

1.The Shoe Wipes

Price: 7.99$

The first step was to get rid of the extra sauce on top of the shoe and especially the sole. As you can guess, we needed many wipes to make sure we could save the shoe and the pack had more than enough for our experiment.

The Shoe Wipes have two sides. One with more liquid integrated and another one with dots for scrubbing. The liquified side had a little aroma that really helped us to mask the smell of condiments.

”We Didn’t Had To Use Too Much Wipes Thanks To The Scrubbing Side.”

Even though there were little tiny spots still visible, I would say that 45% of the job was already done just with the Shoe Wipes which is amazing!

The thoughest part for us was to take care of the residus under the sole and that’s why the Gel Cleaner became necessary.

2. The Gel Cleaner

Price: 9.49$

When we started to apply the Gel Cleaner, I knew I would somehow someway get my sneakers back in shape. The process went pretty smooth even though we couldn’t apply it too much on the top of the jordan 11’s.

The challenging was to clean the sole properly with damaging the shiny part of the breds. To all my 11’s fans right there, I can assure that this Gel Cleaner was a safe bet.

Unlike a lot of shoe cleaners on the market, we didn’t had to put too much pressure on the bottle so we could easily avoid the parts of the shoe that we didn’t want to touch.

At this point, we’ve notice that we 80% done with the process. All the condiments under the shoe were removed easily and the sole appeared whiter than ever.

They were 100% back to life (and so was I).

3. The Shoe Wipes Again

Depending on how much you care about your sneakers, this step might not be necessary for you. In my case, it was not the average ”stepped on my jays” kind of moment as you know.

We wanted to give the sneakers a ”Fresh Out The Box” look again. We used a single wipe from the pack and the job was done.

4. Pro-Tex : Water + Strain Protection

Price: 7:35$

After seeing one of my favorite pair of kicks covered with a ton of ketchup and marinade sauces, it was only right to try their Water + Strain Protection after.

It’s really important to read the instructions in that phase and avoid the typical mistakes. You have to wait until your sneakers are completely dry first and then apply the product.

Even the distance it takes to spray the product properly is a factor. You don’t want to be too close or too far so they suggestion to spray 20 to 30 cm away from the shoe.

After spraying both sneakers, we’ve waited for an hour and then sprayed them again. I always knew that one day, I would be the one ”Water Falling From Your Sneakers” demonstrations like those Footlocker‘s reps; it was my time to shine.

The Moneysworth & Best‘s shoe protector didn’t robbed from my moment at all. In the video below you will notice that not only it works but you can actually shake the water off your shoe when the protector is applied.

Now the last thing we needed to do that was to get rid of the ”Family Reunion Cookout” smell from the sneakers.

5. Shoe Freshner

Price: 9.97$

Even though the Shoe Freshner is originally made for the smells inside the shoe we had to test the potential it had to cover the whole smell.

Since the Shoe Wipes partially took care of the smell issue it was an easy job with the Shoe Freshner. After 2 hours of testing everything, we could finally breath without fearing for our lives thanks to the Shoe Freshner.

Besides the dirty table and empty bottles of ketchup used, you couldn’t tell what went down the last 2-3 hours.

It was a risky experience to try but the outcome was great since we can now confirm that Moneysworth & Best has some of the best shoecare products in terms of value for money.

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.

Read More: Here’s What I’ve Learned About Myself Since The Coronavirus Crisis Started

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.

marc dumaine, personal development coach

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. 

marc dumaine
#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.
