If you around London in back in 2002 you would remember a treasure trove of a store called Slammin Kicks based in the capitals trendy Soho area. Although it closed its doors a few years ago its founder crep aficionado Magdi Fernandes, is resurrected the brand recently in the form of the Slammin Kicks Auction.

The public trainer auction, possibly the first of its kind was held in Shoreditch, East London, and broke the mold in regards to copping kicks, kicks were donated form Nike, Supreme, Patta and the Drop Date and believe us when we say there was an array of rare heat on display.

There were some serious bargains to be had at this event, we even managed to pick up a pair of Joakim Noah LEQ Basketball shoes that were a 1 of 12 and go for £350 worn on ebay, deadstock for £45!

But don’t take our word for it YouTubers @kingofVi and @Manlikesolo were there to vlog the event. Check out their video’s below.
