We were in London for you and visited some of the best sneaker shops in the city to let you know which stores not to miss on your next shopping tour through London. No matter what you are looking for, the fashion capital will not disappoint you.

Boutique Baller

Location: Off Oxford Street

First up on our London sneaker spree is Boutique Baller, a hidden gem tucked away near the illustrious Bond Street. This isn’t your average trainer shop. Boutique Baller caters to the hype hunters, offering not just the rarest and most sought-after sneakers, but everything that’s hot, branded, and hard to find. Think limited-edition Supreme water blasters (yes, you read that right) alongside the latest console releases.

But it’s not all hype. They also stock a killer selection of streetwear from lesser-known brands that are big in the scene. Keep an eye on their Instagram @boutiqueballer or website for the latest drops and insider info.

Address: Find them at 21 Duke St, W1U 1DJ,

Footpatrol

Location: Soho

Footpatrol needs no introduction. Established in 2002, these guys are veterans of the London sneaker scene, with their flagship store located in Soho. Fun fact: their only other European outpost is in Paris, the undisputed fashion capital across the Channel.
While hype is everywhere these days, Footpatrol takes a different approach. They offer a diverse selection of sneakers, sure, but they also delve into lesser-seen gems – think rare running shoes and other unexpected heat. This makes browsing Footpatrol a treasure hunt, where you might just unearth a pair you never knew you craved.

Collaboration is key for Footpatrol. They frequently team up with big brands like adidas to create exclusive sneakers you won’t find anywhere else. The latest fire collab? The adidas x Footpatrol Gazelle 85. Their Instagram is @footpatrol.

Established in 2017, this flagship store is the heart of a global empire with locations in Dubai, Paris, Mexico City, and beyond. But it all started here in London.

The store itself is a stunner, but the real showstoppers are the sneakers. They curate the most exclusive kicks on the planet, from grails like the game-changing Nike SB Dunk Low Staple NYC (“pigeon dunk”) to the legendary Nike Air Mag (of “Back to the Future II” fame, once fetching a cool $200,000).

Presentedby goes beyond sneakers. A dedicated wall showcases the pinnacle of sneaker culture – a custom-made Supreme electric guitar, a one-of-a-kind gaming PC built in the shape of a sneaker. And just when you think you’ve seen it all, there’s an arcade machine where you can win actual sneakers – talk about a dream come true! Get a taste of sneaker magic on their Instagram @presentedby.
