While in London to open his Flagship store, we caught up with shoe cleaning behemoth Jason Markk to talk about the thoughts behind the store and why the brand continues to keep growing 11 years after its inception.
Jason Markk, the world’s most trusted brand in premium shoe care, announces the opening of its London flagship on 10 March 2018 on Carnaby Street in London. The opening marks the brand’s first retail outpost outside of the US and is the second location after its Los Angeles retail boutique, located in Little Tokyo. The store is known as the “World’s First Drop-Off Shoe Care Service” and since opening in 2014, over 50,000 pairs of shoes have been treated professionally by the label’s Sneaker Care Technicians.
The London flagship, located on 32 Carnaby Street, will offer the same menu of premium services such as the popular Purp Special that includes a deep clean, standard undersole and lace cleaning, and freshener. The expansive service offering ranges from a classic cleaning to the most premium cleaning which includes a deep clean, deep undersole and lace cleaning, along with freshener and insole & lining cleaning.
Inspired by the incredible sneaker and youth culture in London, Jason Markk Founder & President, Jason Angsuvarn, wanted to bring the next location to the vibrant and energetic street of Carnaby. Proudly working with Brinkworth Design and The Wilson Brothers, the space mirrors the aesthetic and overall vibe of the Los Angeles space – with added height and natural light from an amazing skylight above and large window displays.
The store opens in partnership with size?, one of Jason Markk’s best retailers in Europe. “When size? approached us with the opportunity to bring our Jason Markk experience to a newly vacant space near their Carnaby St. location, it was a no brainer for us.” said Angsuvarn.
