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

    Yes, H&M is expanding its partnership with soccer player David Beckham and creates a new wardrobe for men. Each piece of this year's spring collection is chosen by the sporting icon. Beckham started collaborating years ago with H&M for their men's underwear collection. The David Beckham Bodywear collection was a huge success (and a huge thirst trap for the ladies). It's only right that the partnership expands. From underwear then to modern essentials now, Beckham describes each...

    I think it's safe to say that Igloofest is the best thing to happen to Canada during winter season. I mean, what else would you want to do with yourself during this horrid cold season, lock yourself up and hibernate?  For those of you unaware of what Igloofest is, you should sorta guess by the name that it is an outdoor electronic music festival (emphasis on the word 'outdoor'). Set in the Old-Port of Montreal, Igloofest has been reuniting music fans from all facets of life to...

    Believe it or not, this video is NOT a joke. Darryl Snider, oups I mean DaddyDaDa wants to let you know how important it is to treat all women with respect. So he decided to shoot a video for this AWESOME song called... *DRUM ROLL* "Treat All Women With Respect". Honestly, the first 5 seconds of the video reminded me of a porno flick plot: cheezy and fake. AT LEAST, young rapper DaddyDada got some crazy bars: "1-2-3-4, no more women on the floor". I REALLY want you guys to pay attention to the...

    As soon as we laid eyes and ears on singer/songwriter Phoebe Ryan, we knew she was someone to keep on our radar. This Scandinavian pop artist has a great voice to boot. Her debut is definitely more than just ordinary. She uploaded her own rendition of two of our favourite timeless tracks and even put together a music video for it. We know, we know, EVERYONE has done a cover mash of R. Kelly’s “Ignition”... but no one added Miguel’s “Do You" to the mix yet. Which in effect, creates a truly...

    If you are still unfamiliar with Ryan Hemsworth, you're probably living under a rock at this point. The Halifax born journalist turned DJ/Producer has dropped a brand new video for his single "Too Long Here" featuring vocals from Alex G. This music video was directed by Alex Girav and features a young woman walking around town following herself(?) to oblivion(?).

    Gearing up for his debut album release at the end of February, Toronto up and coming artist Marlon James drops a simple yet psychedelic video for his single "Away".  Check it out here:  Directed by Marco Baldonado, the video represents the lingering feelings of a past relationship gone sour, represented by whispy smoke projections of James himself. His role as a creative catalyst to some of Toronto's most prominent creatives (Tanika Charles, Birthday Boy, Junia-T) has solidified his...
