Our London OG Magdi Fernandes is a man of many trades: photography, music, retail, but the common thread is always footwear. Enter one of his early ventures Slammin’ Kicks. CrepjunkieTV sat down with Magdi and spoke about his inspiring journey, taking his passion for footwear from a car boot sale, to a wall in Major Flavas, to his landmark store in Beak Street and Marlborough Court. The Slammin’ Kicks store was one of London's most popular and established independent sneaker spots back in the day, right up until it closed its doors in late 2007. While he still makes a lot of moves behind the scenes, you can currently catch him alongside Capital Xtra’s DJ Manny Norte on their new Complex show, Sole Connection.
