Harry Parkes Corporation Street by a country mile. I bought a Man City top from there in 1974/75. Beautiful top it was and they became my second team with Derby being relegated to my third team.
Harry Parkes was a dvb and why would you have 2nd and 3rd teams?
Do they sell Yeezys?

Viram footwear. Stratford rd spark hill in the 80s 90s
Second team, third team?

What is this madness???
England were my fourth team as the Derby kit was the same colours, so I saved a few quid there (tu)

When I was at school, we were putting together a decent run of results and playing in front of actual crowds. Our football shirts were over thirty years old, torn and moth eaten, so we pestered our parents to get us a new kit. We scraped some money together and went to see if Harry Parkes would do us a discount. The old bastard said that he would, but it had to be a Villa kit. For a Small Heath school, this would be like signing a death warrant for half of us. Eventually, we compromised and accepted a Villa away kit which was yellow shirts, blue shorts and yellow socks. Still bad, but not life-threatening.

A former school chum Paul Dyson, had a nice little sports shop in Kings Heath back in the day.
He used to play for Cov City. Stoke, Baggies, but was always Blues at school.

Olton golf course shop for Pringle jumpers ;)

What was that sports shop in Coventry that knocked spots off any other sports shop? They had all the latest gear in there. You had to watch your back when you came out with your new found gear as the Cov lads would mug you on the way back to the station.
Willmots on the Stratford road in Hall Green, was a decent sports shop.

Not sure it was much of a sports shop but used to go to Barry Brookes in Northfield as a lad. He was a celebrated angler in local circles and was often featured in the Sports Argus. Seemed to remember most of my visits were to buy Subbuteo teams!
