Just wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Sila! He's a great guy who is always in good spirits and is always looking to help out others!! He definitely helped me out with the setting-up of the store. Shrink wrapping, pricing and stocking kicks.

Sila is always looking for the freshest sneaks!! Take a look @ his AM95 Slates. That's some serious Heat for the feet!! You can find him hanging @ the gotsole consignment shop helping out and just being himself. A seriously humble guy who doesn't say much, but is always listening. He's a former co-worker of Goodfoot MTL. It's an honor to know Sila and I'm happy to say he's an official "gotsole soledier". Oh btw, I see you in them AM95 slates!! You're welcome!!!

1 of my favorite players Steve Nash signed a 2 year extension with the Suns. This makes me very Happy and I look forward 2 the Suns runnin' & gunnin' like the good old days. Nash running the break with Jrich & Barbosa on the wings, Stat on the follow-up!! Watch the scoreboard hit triple digits all the time!!



1 of my favorite watches, the Panerai Luminor, comes out J-Hova big pimpin' style. Stunning watch with so much class, it would be Ivy league status. I actually own a Panerai Luminor Base Destro that would be considered elementary private school status compared to this Luminor 1950 pink gold 8 days Rattrapante. Insane details and luxury in 1 wrist hell of a diving watch. Check the impressive details here.

Super-sexy camera by RICOH! New updates for the ever-popular GR digital 3. Sleek and sexy! Oh and it also takes great pics....Lol.



Tag Heuer & Meridiist get together to give you an awesome Watch/Cellphone combo that comes in a great package. Ultra limited and hard 2 find. The Box alone is amazing. Leave it to the people @ TAG to come up with a great design and packaging. Good-luck finding this combo package.

"the chronograph Grand Carrera 36 RS Caliper and MERIDIIST, a phone designed by TAG Heuer.
The pair of instruments are presented in a limited edition of 25 cases only available in Portugal and on sale as of July 2009."



Just wanna give my man Kranz some more shine on the blog. He's straight-up bringing me some niceness for the feet. So if you are a Sz. 10.5 or 11, swing by and maybe you can see something you like. Kranz is always @ the shop, hanging out on his Fixie and just talking about whatever. He's always got something to say and is never @ a loss for words. Kranz knows a lot about everything. Always insightful and willing to speak his mind. Some people would call him a "blabbermouth" or tell him "You talk too much!!". But I just like to call him what everyone else calls him....KRANZ!

Yo Kranz, if you're reading this, many thanks for the support. gotsole consignment was tailor-made for people like you. Btw, nice pose with your last drop-off.

Kranz posing like a "sneakerpimp" with his line-up of hotties!! I see them Air Structures on your feet!!

Just taking the time to thank Oakley for having me play during the Ste. Catherine St. sidewalk sale last weekend. I had the great opportunity to play alongside a really kool cat who I enjoy spinning with and just hanging out. I'm talking about Dj Psychology. We have so much in common, it's ridiculous (more in another post).

Well the weekend was awesome and a lot of fun. We got to play all types of music and had the crowds flocking to the Oakley booth (the free gear helped.....a lot). It was kool to hear Psychology on the M-I-C interacting with the crowd. Redbull supplied the drinks, Oakley provided the FREE stuff and Psychology and I supplied the beats.

Well Oakley (and Psychology) made sure that I did not leave empty handed. So here's what I received for playing the weekend and just hanging out.

Rolling carry-on suitcase full of gear!!!

1 Pair of golf shoes (real comfy), 2 pairs of Frogskins, Wallet, Money clip, Gold Hat, Pants, Cuban straw hat and 2 pairs of sunglasses for the Wife.

Damn I love the Frogskins. I can NEVER have enough!!

"Called up the homies and I'm askin y'all
Which park, are y'all playin basketball?
Get me on the court and I'm trouble
Last week fuck around and got a triple double
Freaking niggaz every way like M.J.
I can't believe, today was a good day" - Ice Cube

So we had back 2 back sunny days in the MTL and I had to take advantage cuz we've been having some real shitty weather of late. So here we have another installment of "It Was A Good Day" - a day when I break out a fresh new pair of sneaks. Trust me, this will be happening a lot more often these days, especially if the weather co-operates.


"This Air Footscape Woven Chukka is a collaboration between Nike and Mix Martial Arts fighter Caol Uno. Uno is a decorated fighter from Japan who is known for his exquisite grappling ability. These simple, stylish and comfortable sneakers he collaborated on feature a suede weave instead of the nylon that is usually found on Nike’s woven models. They also boast a premium leather tongue, heel and eyelet. Nike pulled out all the stops for this collaboration model, and it shows."


So I recently got a Fixed Gear Bike built for my shop to kinda help promote the store (and also help get me around and help me stay fit). The Bike was inspired by the Nike Air Trainer 1 Chlorophyl (aka McEnroe's or Bo Jackson's - click the Bo Jackson link to see the OG commercial).

It's a favorite sneaker of mine so I got Dylan Adair (Faux Amis) to help me come up with the concept. Dylan helped me with the design and sourcing the right parts.

It all starts with the Volume Cutter Frame (3rd generation). I LOVE the logo for the company!! It's a Sub woofer and since I DJ, it was perfect!

B43 rims. Fi'zi:k seat. BMX inspired handle bars and grips (I was really into BMX when I was growing up). Profile Hubs. We sourced Anodized green MKS pedals, spoke nipples & crank plate bolts. Miche seat post. Finally, a carbon fibre fork that anchors the front end.

After deciding on the parts, I got Sylvester from Brakeless to build it and put it together. Many thanks to the Brakeless crew for taking the time to build my bike on such short notice. Gotsole decals were from Sticky Media and they were put on by Rob (speakerbruiser - Thanks again for hooking up the job on the BMX handle bars, it looks dope).

I'm extremely happy with the bike and ride it regularly. I'm currently brakeless and working on riding it properly. I guess it will take sometime and patience (maybe a helmet and a bell would help...LOL.)

If you wanna checkout my bike, swing by the shop to get a better look.

"Just waking up in the morning gotta thank god
I dont know but today seems kinda odd" - Ice Cube

So I'm not sure if you people know, but I recently opened up a Sneaker Consignment store in Montreal. Located @ 5259 Parc Ave., gotsole consignment is my pride and joy. If you have DS sneakers piled up and you're not sure what to do with them, you can bring it to gotsole consignment and I would gladly help you move them. "Bring in. Set price. GET PAID!!" For more info check it out here.

So I'm starting off a new type of post that chronicles me, "the boy wonder....KID K.I.C.K.S." breaking out a fresh new pair of sneakers. I've been meaning to do this for a minute, but never go around to it. Well here we have the 1st official post of "IT WAS A GOOD DAY". Dedicated to Phil Lam! Rest In Power!!

I see you David Tu. My man East, Huarache love all day!!!

Air Zoom Talache has to be 1 of the top sleeper models in Nike stable. Full-Length zoom air with an all leather outer midsole. Top notch design w/ the Air Max 1 upper and the Zoom Talaria outer. It's a god-damn wrap!! I'm actually kinda happy peeps aren't up on it. It's like the zoom Talache and I have our own relationship. You don't even wanna know how comfy these kicks are?! Bananas!!

Here's a funky variation of the Zoom Talache a-la wing-tip design. Pretty cool pair that would totally go unnoticed if you rocked it with a suit or a nice pressed pair of khakis. I down for a pair.
