Leading the way in the northeast is Native Skate Store, this skated owned shop opened in February 2003. The shop carries a huge range of brilliant brands, including the likes Etnies, Zero, HUF, Anti Hero and Emerica, and reassuringly all the staff are skaters themselves.

Route One, Various

As well as a varied range of womenswear as well as menswear, Route One is the place to head to for skate shoes. There are shops in Bath, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Southampton, meaning they’ve got the breath of the land covered.

At The Black Sheep, you’re guaranteed the best in customer service, as it’s previously won the title of ‘Best Skate Shop Team’ in Europe on two occasions. The shop also plays a key part in promoting the local skate scene, having opened and developed skate parks in the Manchester area.

Skatehut, Coventry

Skatehut started after founder Mark Johansen-Berg wanted to buy a pair of Heelys for his son after seeing them on holiday and failing to find them anywhere in the UK, so he started selling them himself. Skatehut was formed, and today sells an incredible range of boards, bikes, shoes, clothes and much more.

Skatewarehouse, Devon

With staff that are very informative and welcoming, this is a fantastic place to head to, even if you’re not entirely sure what you want. There’s a huge online selection of goods that support, but if you can, visit the Devon shop in person – it has a traditional feel to it.

NOTE, Manchester

With two shops on Tib Street and Thomas Street, as well as their online sales, the sheer number of brands and products that NOTE sell is reason alone to head down there – you’ll be totally spoilt for choice.
