Sneakerheads the world over have probably heard of Jason Markk, the man who has a brand of shoe cleaning solutions by the same name. Well he's recently done what may be a world first; opening what can only be best described as a dry-cleaning service for shoes. We stumbled upon the Jason Markk flagship store in Little Tokyo in downtown Los Angeles last week which offers drop-off shoe cleaning services such as the Classic Clean (Upper and Mid), Deep Clean (which will blast out inset stains), and The Purp Special, Which is the deep clean + a clean of the undersole + deodorization of the inside of the shoe. The Flagship store specializes in cleaning everything from rubber and vinyl to premium materials such as suede and premium leather. The store also sells packages and refills of their shoe cleaning kit as well as a small selection of graphic tees, socks and shoe bags.
If you're in the LA area and in need of a serious shoe cleaning hit up the store here.
