Profile

Stocked floor-to-ceiling with limited-edition new and "lightly worn" sneakers, the store lets the shelves—brimming with busy kicks in vibrant colors—do the talking. All of the merchandise on display, in typical New York shrink-wrap plastic, are being sold by their owners on consignment. Hard-core collectors come for the Nike Air Force Ones and Air Jordans, but the shelves also display Visvim, Puma, Vans, and other coveted brands. The process is simple: Flight Club lets the seller set the price, and the store takes a cut of the final sale. Flight Club also authenticates each pair—all without the shipping, payment, and reliability hassles that come along with some online vendors. Shoes are displayed not only in-store, but also on their Website along with the inventory from their Los Angeles outpost, allowing for maximum exposure and the quickest turnaround for sales. By encouraging sellers to convert their proceeds to store credit, Flight Club maintains a loyal clientele and a steady stream of in-the-know collectors, who keep their inventory consistently fresh.
