Are Sneaker Cleaning Services Going To Become The Norm For Sneakerheads Soon?

There is nothing—nothing!—more frustrating to a sneakerhead than getting a big old smudge right on a fresh pair of sneakers. Regardless of whether they get it from someone stepping on their sneakers or they smudge the sneakers themselves, it’s equally as frustrating when it comes time to try and get a pair of kicks clean. There are lots of quality sneaker cleaning kits on the market, but the fact that you have to sit down and spend hours cleaning your sneakers, only to have them get smudged again at a later date, can be enough to force a sneakerhead to turn a pair of fresh kicks into a pair of beaters. Keeping sneakers clean is that frustrating.

However, the Jason Markk company—which is one of the premier companies when it comes to sneaker cleaning kits—might have a solution for you if you frequently face the issue mentioned above. Jason Markk just opened a retail store in Los Angeles and, in addition to selling sneaker cleaning products, they are also going to offer the services of Sneaker Care Technicians to all of the sneaker aficionados out there. Basically, these SCTs will take your worn sneakers and make them look brand new again by cleaning them for you. So you’ll be able to take a dirty pair of sneakers and make them look like you just took them out of the box simply by dropping them off with the good folks at Jason Markk.

We think that this might be the wave of the future when it comes to sneakers, too. People invest hundreds, even thousands of dollars on single pairs of sneakers, only to have them get scuffed up the first or second time they wear them. So it’s only right that sneaker-cleaning shops start popping up around the country. The Jason Markk store might be one of the first ones to offer SCT care. But we wouldn’t be surprised at all to see more shops like it pop up in the near future. And it should be a really great thing for everyone out there who does their best to keep their kicks clean.

What do you think about the idea of sneaker-cleaning stores? Would you patronize one if it opened up in your neck of the woods? Let us know in the comments section below.
