4th arrondissement

For some years now, this has been the go-to place for skaters in Paris. Though considerably more expensive than its online rivals (expect something in the range of a 40% markup), Nomade Shop has maintained its edge for two reasons: it allows you to try on your skateboards and rollerskates before purchasing, and it houses a repair shop that doubles up as a customisation service. The shop also offers a bewildering array of gadgets and accessories that range from the life-saving (helmets for €35) to the outlandish (Poweriser jumping stilts, anyone?). The staff unfailingly enthusiastic if not always spot-on with their recommendations, and the venue, a veritable den of shiny paraphernalia, is endlessly engaging even for those not planning on making a purchase. Better skate than never.
