Grey kindly marked the closing of our Neal’s Yard store yesterday. In 2012 the mag worked with Nike SB to produce a unique newspaper called The Edition. Will Harmon spent quite some time researching the history of Slam City Skates during our 25th year in business. Will’s article gives the reader a real window into how it all began and an insight into our rich history peppered with quotes and stories from a host of employees. It is filled with amazing old ads too screened by Paul Gonella. The title of this article is “Slam Scores A Quarter Of A Century” and you can read it HERE.
