Five toe-tapping boutiques
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 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. From ultra-feminine Casadeis (€335) to Repetto ballet pumps, via the clean lines of Michel Vivien.
Had your fill of basic black boots and classic court shoes? Annabel Winship invites you to think outside the box and start pounding the pavement in some fantastical footwear. Previously a stylist, her imaginative colllection is eccentric and colourful. Metallic coloured boots with stars will set you back €328...
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.
