selected_by_Paris_01 Situated in the Les Halles district, our Paris store sits a stones throw away from the famous Centre Pompidou, the eccentric arts space that is said to have inspired Tinker Hatfield while creating the Nike Air Max 1 via it's innovative design features. As with a lot of european cities we've seen on our Selected By travels, Paris has an interesting divide of both modern architecture that has cropped up over the last decade, that sits alongside classic shuttered windows and ornate railings. One of the most esteemed fashion capitals of the world, style is very important to Parisians, a trait visible in every individual area you pass through.

The pairs that really got me hooked on trainers were the adidas ZX8000 Aqua and Reebok Pump Battleground OG from back in the 90s.
