  1. Hi going to paris soon. Im addicted to Nike air max 1! Which stores would you all recommend? Heard oqium is good

    • Hi Burak, Opium is realy good. Unfortunately the store burned down a few weeks ago. Don’t know if they have found a solution yet. I would check ‘Le 8 Rive Gauche’, they have a big NIKE collection. Otherwise ‘Size’, next to Les Halles.
      Good luck, have a good trip in Paris and if you happen to find another great store, let me know.
