Nike x Hockey's "Killshot" Demo Photos

For years now the guys at Pawnshop have dreamt of doing a parking-lot demo outside the shop. The only problem is that they’re on a busy street and have no parking lot. Where there’s a will, there’s a way, though, and with the help of Nike SB and Hockey, Pawnshop was able to block off College Avenue in downtown Covina and throw one hell of a “parking-lot” demo in celebration of the new Killshot shoe. —Ben Karpinski
