Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner Review

Jason Markk Shoe Cleaner Review

I have been collecting sneakers for years now and one problem I constantly encounter is keeping them clean. I have purchased many foot locker, champs and neighbourhood tailor cleaning products for shoes, but I have never found the perfect one. Some come with bristles that are just too coarse, while other cleaning products just don't meet my standards for what a clean shoe actually is. I must admit that I pretty much gave up and figured that all shoe cleaning products were the same hoax as any bum who has said they "need change for the bus".

The Jason Markk product came onto the scene in 2007, however, and had much success. As the sceptic that I am though, I did not give into the hype or believe that ordering this new product would change my perspective. Years went by and now it's 2012 and I have still been wasting money on soft toothbrushes and generic shoe cleaners, until recently. I went to the Exclucity shop in Montreal and I spoke with the shop owner, Trent, and he sold me on the whole idea of this Jason Markk being able to clean my shoes like none other. So, I finally bought the cleaning kit. It took me a while, but I finally tried the product out and was beyond amazed at the final product.

I used my cement Jordan 4 and my Air Penny 2 as examples. My penny 2 being way dirtier than my Jordan 4 so that I could see how uch dirt this stuff can really get rid of. I cleaned about 7 pairs of shoes in total and got every single one of them to look cleaner and shinier than ever before. I can officially say that I believe everything I have heard about the Jason Markk product. My friends have told me that Jason Markk doubles as a hat cleaner, as well. Any sweat stain or other stains that may have found their way onto your hat can be cleaned right off with your new favourite shoe cleaner. I spent about $50 for the whole kit. The kit includes the cleaning solution, the regular brush, the suede brush and the micro-fiber towel. The cleaning product should last me more than a few months considering that just one little drop can get a whole shoe clean. It's all about the foaming action.

Check the pictures below to see for yourself the before and after shots. Jason Markk is found at most streetwear clothing stores and can also be purchased directly from their website at www.jasonmarkk.com

  • It’s so close you can almost hear it. Amongst the never-ending list of festivals is one of our favourite ones: Shambhala.

If that hasn’t convinced you yet maybe this year’s lineup will. The hot sun, cool river, endless dance, eclectic beats, and all those beautiful free people doing their beautiful free thang. As the...

  • Pat Jordache's Steps springs from three years of labyrinthine sessions, building a state of the art studio, producing artists on his Banko Gotiti imprint and managing a sleazy dance club. Dark, playful, loosely honest, cynical and care-free, the record pulls from Eno, Plastic Soul, and Shep Pettibone. For all of its careful assemblage, Steps is an uncanny, accidental party record. LP available this spring on 140g vinyl and through major digital outlets. Steps...
  • Today, the dynamic duo of Ango (LuckyMe) and Druture (Chopsquad/Grizzly), join forces as LYK (Let You Know) to deliver it’s first internet care package entitled 'LEAK.'   The group draws on Ango’s penchant for viral melody, Druture’s couldn’t-be-any-closer-to-the-street ear and a whole lot of virtual Get Dumb-ery and one-upmanship to shape a new take on electronic-focused club hip hop. It's a different kind of bounce. This is a #NoDropZone!   "See What I Can Do"...

  • A few days ago, a new petition against rapper Action Bronson has sprung up on the internet, but this time, it's to attempt to ban him from performing at Montreal's Osheaga Festival. The reason?  Action Bronson brags about rape, violence against women and even femicide in his song Consensual Rape and his music video Brunch. This new trend has been directly influenced by the successful petition that was put together to get him off the roster for the NXNE public show that he was scheduled...
  • Japan is hands-down homeland of the freaky: they make the creepiest horror movies, invent useless and scary stuff that can give their horror movie a run for their money... In conclusion some of the things that hail from the land of the rising sun are bound to give you nightmares, or plain and simple weird the f*** out of you. One of their latest additions to the theatre of the macabre is the dating simulation game Hatoful Boyfriend - literally translated as 'hurtful pigeon boyfriend'......
  • Time travel. While for some it's nothing more than a farfetched dream only fulfilled through countless amounts of science fiction, for others it's a work in process - a possible feat in the near future. In Jacob Gentry's SYNCHRONICITY, traveling through time and space becomes a successful operation when physicist Jim Beale (played by Chad McKnight) and team do the unthinkable.
