After all the excitement of the announcement of Puma teaming up with The Weeknd to create a collaboration I was super excited to see what everything would look like!! I of course loved the first drop of the Ignite limitless kicks and now I must give the crown to these! The Puma x The Weeknd Parallel Boots! I am not much of a boot/sneaker person, for myself, I think they look so good on like guys LOL!! I like either or, but these… No word of a lie, like made me be like “#DAMNiNEEDTHOSE!” I didn’t even give my Puma fam a chance to offer them to me before I was e-mailing and asking! There is something about the silhouette that makes them light enough to apply to my style! I also love the super thick sole!!! I think what also helps is that I am into this baggy track pant and sweater vibe right now even though yes, it is like 30°C outside.. BUT YOU KNOW!! IT IS WHAT IT IS LOL!!!! Scroll down for more pics of the kicks!!!!
TO ALL MY CANADIAN HOMIES!!! If you like what you are seeing than the Puma x The Weeknd Parallel boots are dropping tomorrow, August 24th, 2017 at select retailers in the country which are.. Livestock in Toronto, OTH in Montreal and NRML in Ottawa!!!!! So place ya calls and get in line because these are a drop worth waiting for!!!
In my head.. I’m just all like.. Would I??… Could I…???.. Wait… Should I!?…. I mean I am already at 2.5/3 inches in my ankle boots that I regularly wear so what’s another couple of inches right? I love everything about these Yeezy Season 2 Green Knit Boots.. From the dark shade of green to the arch of the heel to that pointy pointy toe.. Definitely a must have!!!!

OH YES! If you follow me on instagram then you know that yesterday I debuted my brand new NIKEiD kicks because YES!!! NIKEiD is now available in Canada! I was lucky enough to be one of the selected influencers to meet with Nike at their NIKEiD lab on Richmond St. & Portland St. here in Toronto where I got to create my first Canadian pair of NIKE iD sneakers! Of course I just kept creating, creating and creating.. The issue was I had to narrow it down to 1 perfect shoe but couldn’t choose between these two but thankfully my Nike family hooked me up with both which both say STRUT on the back! #IMeanHowPerfectRight!? – Can’t wait to put these to #WERKKKK

I have to say! I have not been excited for something like this in a whole long while. For Kanye’s second instalment of his collaboration with ADIDAS, he has released the Yeezy Boost 350 sneaker to the public this past weekend. Fortunately the amazing team at ADIDAS Canada were watching over me and hooked me up with a pair in advance so that I could get a feel out for them and add them to my budding collection of sneakers (am I becoming a sneaker head #OHHELLNAW #MAYBE #OHLORD #OKYASSSS)… Anyways, needless to say, these sneakers are definitely worth the #LEGIT struggle/camp-out-session/online purchase-bot-ing/e-bay-stalking that may of ensued in order to acquire these bad boys! I love the colour tones used as well as the overall style, shape and design. That all being said, follow below for a pic x pic unboxing of the new ADIDAS + KANYE WEST YEEZY BOOST 350’s
So my friend Jonathan Shimoni of Faded Lifestyle and I were talking about a week ago now and he asked me what I thought of some shoes. He showed me some options, one of theme being the brand Hender Scheme and their ‘Manual Industrial Products’ collection- I was instantly in love! The retro-classic aesthetic of these shoes are not only timeless but somehow habitually on trend!!!.. Created as adaptations of classic kicks from Jordans to Air Forces(?), aside from style – what makes these kicks SO DOPE (and pricey! The ones I want a.ka. the ‘Manual Industrial Products 10 Natural’ go for $1, 290CDN) is not only, the fact that they are my colour-obsession and they are all leather but they are actually HAND CRAFTED so you know the attention to detail and quality is on another level (hence the ‘Manual’).. Another cool-factor which I personally love is that the ‘Natural’ selection of the shoes patina with age, meaning they change colour, not from dirt but from wear.. They go from what you see above to a more darker, natural golden brown with wear, a true sign of luxury (see below for a visual on how they colour and some of the other styles) See more below..
“Why walk on the runway when you can stride in the sky? With balance and grace these high heels zigzag the high wire. ” How chic is this new video featuring the Hermès spring/summer 2015 Women’s Shoes Collection? From sexy and high to casual and cute Hermès showcases their undeniably desirable array of heels, kittens, brogues? (I’m still learning all my shoe lingo) and flats.. Did you see the crocodile platform flats? I love creative and cool but super simple creative’s like this! Leave it to Hermès to create a fun and exciting adorable video like this! Enjoy.
For the Fall/Winter 2015 mens collection for Sergio Rossi, Angelo Ruggeri, design director, emphasizes the pure elegance of a contemporary classic, by exploring the stylistic codes of the brand. Infused with strong male shapes and details such as high-frequency technique that give incredible three-dimensional effects and elements such as the craftmanship of light darkened leather which confers a special intensity to colours. English-style takes a modern twist. See below for more!
For free time, the use of hides as English crust leathers having a fabric effect is best expressed in the boots with internal and external buckles all along the sock. The craftmanship know-how of the brand is also shown in the details of the twocolour leathers and the non-grip saw-tooth waveform soles. And for the evening, the man becomes basic and dandy to wear slippers or velvet laceups with piping in silk soutache.
