Five toe-tapping boutiques

Comme des Chaussures

Opened in 1988, this store has made its name offering comfortable shoes made from quality materials without compromising on style. Among the ranges on offer, you’ll find the big name brands such as Camper, Chie Mihara and Trippen as well Pantanetti, Ink or Minnetonka. Of course, quality comes at a price, but fortunately...

Mi-Prix

You don’t come to Mi-Prix for the décor – you enter via its faded yellow shopfront with its post-war neon sign to stock up on discounted designer brand shoes. It's an address well-known to Parisian fashionistas, and for good reason. You can find beautiful pairs of shoes from €50 to €200, and you can even ring in advance to find out about the latest stock...

Garrice

Garrice is without doubt one of the best places in Paris to find luxury brand shoes. There's no chance of your sole peeling off in the rain, or of snapping a heel running for the bus – they may be expensive but they are the highest quality, well-chosen and always in fashion.

Size ?

Calling all sneaker fans: Size ?, despite its interrogative name, offers one of the most assuredly vast collections of trainers in the country. Known for its exclusive partnerships with Nike and Adidas, this famous chain – actually British in origin – broke into the Parisian market with a bang in late 2012, and has remained balanced on the cutting edge of the capital's footwear fashion ever since. Ladies, gentlemen and children of all tastes are equally catered for, whether looking for a modest pair of branded trainers (Reebok, Saucony, Vans, Asics, New Balance, Nike, Le Coq Sportif and Supra all feature) or something with serious designer credentials (maverick creator Jeremy Scott's latest, anyone?). Prices don't stray far from RRP: think €70 for a pair of Vans, €140 for Air Max Ones. And if the fancy takes you to deck out the rest of your body, the first floor is home to a very comprehensive range of streetwear clothing. A victim of its understandable success, the shop's only drawback is that it tends to sell out fast. Pay it a visit and you'll see why.
