Last night in LA we were treated to a wear test of Nick Tucker’s new shoe at the famous Diamond Mine skatepark. Brews and pizza were up for grabs and shops from all over SoCal were invited in to make themselves at home and session late into the night. Thanks to Diamond, Tyrone Romero and Nick Tucker! Check out all the photos.--Blair Alley
