Indeed, summer 2017 will be all about C-O-L-O-U-R-S. You will have to look for patterns and designs that are outside of the box and this is why we’ve put together this list to help you choose the right sneakers for the season.

1-Desert Tan Speedlace Boot

Release date: Available all year long

Price: Depends on where you’re buying them but they are currently 89$ + TX at Simons

I know, I know; a lot of ya’ll might think we’re crazy for suggesting to wear boots during summertime but let us tell you why first.


First, don’t let the look of the boots fool you, this is definitely a good choice for any season. Not only that, these boots add a finishing touch to almost EVERY outfit.

Consider wearing them mostly at night or colder days. They are currently available at Simons so make sure you get your hands on one pair before it’s too late!


2-Nike Sock Dart “Safari Pack”

Release Date: 05.11.17

Price: 140$ USD

Since Nike tested their “safari” colour pattern on the Airmax 1 a couple years ago. Based on the massive response they had at the time, I think they knew they had a hit that could be applied to various shoe designs.


They took a risk with the Nike Sock Dart since it could’ve been too overwhelming to have to the cheetah spots all over the place but it turned out great.

Indeed, this is the perfect shoe for the guy who likes to keep it discrete while still making a statement. This is for the guy who wants to feel comfortable all the time while remaining on top of his game.





3-Nike KD 9 Elite “Racer Pink”

Release date: 05.15.17

Price: 150$ USD

I would like for my conspiracy theories readers to help me out on this one. To me, it seems like Nike is really giving their best designs and color patterns to Kevin Durant for some reason (let’s be honest!).

So far, I’ve never been disappointed with a KD release and now they wanted to bring back some colours for the summer!

Trainer shoes, beside being the most comfortable  type of shoes in the world, also give you the opportunity to stand out when you choose the right colourway. Indeed, this ‘Racer Pink” is as mean as it gets right?!

4-Adidas NMD R1 PK “Datamosh Pack”

release date: 05.12.17

prise: 180$ USD

Adidas is definitely on a mission since the last 5 years. When you checked all the collabs and campaigns they did recently, you can tell that the sneaker giant his slowly but surely gaining momentum.

This release right here came exactly on time for summertime. The patterns, the “yeezy boost alternative” look add functionality and style to the mix.

Definitely a great pick for your barbecues, outdoor activities or even a day at the beach (if you’re crazy enough)

Release date: 05.18.17

Price: 200$ USD

When two classics collide, you have to pay attention! The famous Coogi Sweater iconic pattern is  brought back to life once again but now on your favourite pair of Puma sneakers.

We’ve recently discussed about the impact and meaning about this design done by Coogi and the fact that Biggie made it a Hip Hop fashion statement!


This collab is made to rock it everywhere, from your next fashion show to your next downtown shopping spree.

Commonwealth x Puma Ignite evoKNIT

Release date : 05.13.2017

Price: 150$ USD

Puma is definitely going for the kill with their recent releases. This time around they’ve emphasised on the colours like never before.

This is a great alternative  for the Adidas Tubular series!


Cop Or Drop?

Based on our selection for the summer, if one thing really stood out between each sneakers is the overall trainer shoe design, big soles and the colour patterns.

We believe that summertime is that time of the year where the rules of “all black everything” or the minimalist approach to life have to be pushed to the side a little bit.

Do you like our selection? Which pair is a cop? Which pair is a drop?

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

A New World Order



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.

Do you think more magazines are going to make a full transition to digital?

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

It’s all about your point of view



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.




#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.
