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.

  • Whether or not this following assumption plays into this whole 'dumb-ass stereotypes about what makes a woman a lesbian' is irrelevant. I mean, stating that a woman with nails isn't a lesbian is just well, ridiculous, but having killer acrylic claws pounded finger deep inside of you... that's  no joke. A woman's nails aren't only helpful cues when eliminating hopefuls at a bar, but they also give you an unexpected look at one's personality. Here is my take on Jenna Marble's 'What a girl's nails...

The Grind

  • Are you a 22 year old female with B cup boobs and a double D ass? Well, I am.  I often wonder if my ass makes up for the lack there of my chest and recently caught myself drifting into the thought patterns of the male brain. Because I am under-privileged up top and over-privileged down below, I constantly have the thought of men being dissapointed because boobs are... well... they're boobs. They're bouncy, sexy, totally awesome to play with and make women stand out amongst the human species....
  • A petition has surfaced on the interwebs directed towards the Société Des Transports de Montreal to abolish the date limit for student pricing on their Opus card subscriptions (which is used for public transportation via subway or bus) - The real question is: why has no one thought about this before 2016? The petition, which was put together by Sophie Lamontagne, has gotten more than 10,000 signatures already and various amounts of comments as to why it is a viable point to make.  We ask the ...
