The Shop is an area in all League of Legends maps where Summoners can purchase items for their champions. Every shop is located near each team's spawn pool. You can access the shop either by clicking it with the mouse cursor or by using the default Hotkey, "P".

Items can be sorted under multiple categories if it contains that category's statistic.

Items in each category are sorted from the cheapest price to the most expensive.
