Ach ja, das Slam City... versteckt in einer engen Gasse in Covent Garden und vollgestopft mit T-Shirts, Schuhen (in Kartons) und so weiter, auf zwei Etagen. Der inzwischen letzte Nike SB Account in London und auch mit einem Onlineshop ausgestattet. Der Bereich hinter dem Kassentresen ist mit Paketen vollgestopft - offenbar ist das Ladengeschäft auch das Lager für den Onlineshop.
I got a chance to visit the famed Slam City Skates on my visit to London, and they did not disappoint. Their selection was solid, but nothing that I couldn't get in the US except... for their own branded items, which I had to pick up. I got a hoodie (jumper), t-shirt, and a snap-back cap.

It's a great place to find some SB's since they do have a SB account.. But.. it's a little bit overpriced for their products but hey, if your a sneaker head like I am.. i'd rather get it here than wait in the mail for them.
