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.

      The "L" in LA must stand for longevity. Flying Lotus has been one of the leading pioneers in the LA beat scene since the release of his cult-classic debut 1983 and isn't showing signs of slowing down.  Since the enigmatic beatmaker has had the tendency to evolve with every passing record groove, it's sometimes hard to pinpoint just what makes Fly Lo so special. Somewhere in between the buzzy sine synths, hypnotic percussion and bargain-bin vinyl crackle of his early cuts lies a...
      Autumn Fashion

      [Part 1 of 3] It's happening: the end of Summer. While some of us are weeping at the thought of the cold creeping up our skirts, others cannot wait until they can wrap scarves around their necks and wear boots zipped up to their thighs. I believe red should be part of this Autumn's Fashion, because it not only contrasts and blends with the beautiful and decaying nature, but it lifts our spirits. It reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood and her love of the forest and wolves, and there is nothing...

      As Walter Sobchak would say, "Dude, Chinaman is not the preferred nomenclature." But I gotta tell ya, hip-hop trio Ruane Maurice, who are set to drop their self-titled debut album with Stars and Letters Records on September 9th, ARE the preferred nomenclature.   The aptly named “Nomenclature”, their first single, and “Farne” which just came out last week, are musically and stylistically robust with a strong focus on musique concrète and found sound — but the guys of Ruane Maurice...
      No Kandi Allowed: Diplo's Kandi Ban Alienates Fans in the Name of Safety
      2 hours 42 min ago Monolith Coffey
      Diplo & Co's recent ban of Kandi at their festival events, Mad Decent Block Party, is still causing waves within the EDM community. Earlier this month, the Mad Decent head honcho followed in the footsteps of HARDFEST founder Gary Richards (AKA Destructo) in banning the colourful plastic beads from his events. While many consider Kandi to be a playful symbol for freedom of expression with a long history in EDM culture, Diplo claims that the ban exists to protect festival attendees. This...

      In light of recent events, it has begun to feel more and more like the world is pressing the CTRL, ALT + DEL buttons on itself. End task, do not send.  Europe minus Germany is in financial disarray. Africa has widespread disease and a serious lack of clean drinking water  and no one minus Angelina Jolie seem to give a fuck (brb too busy pouring fresh ice water on our heads). Thousands of innocent lives are lost on a daily basis in Syria and Palestine among others and Russia just woke...

      After the heart-wrenching loss of the comedian Robin Williams, videos and stories have been popping up all over the internet to give tribute to his amazing influence in our lives.

So, Disney added a tribute at the end of Aladdin.Other tributes to Williams make reference to his other movies, like Dead Poets Society. Twitter was trending with the hashtags #MyCaptain and #OCaptainMyCaptain,...

      NONI WO may not be a name you have heard before but get ready to be sucked into their trance filled adventure of a song. This Montreal pop club may have just released a single that will make U S B E P one of my  most anticipated EP's of the summer.  Their single alternates between an ambient and experimental chillstep. Putting together a perfect blend of beats, samples and real instruments on one laptop may never come out this sexy ever again.  The four minds...

      Aphex Twin fans have had a lot to speculate about over the last few days. On Saturday, a blimp with the Aphex Twin logo and the number '2014' appeared above London, England. Simultaneously, the logo appeared stenciled outside of NYC's legendary Radio City Music Hall. This morning, that speculation was (partially) put to rest when Richard D. James' posted his first tweet in two years - a cryptic URL that can only be accessed by using the mega-secure TOR browser. The URL links to the below...
