How Flight Club Works:
Flight Club is a sneaker consignment shop where you can buy and sell sneakers. Patrons can sell sneakers at Flight Club by bringing in shoes to the store and consulting with the consignment representatives to agree on a selling price. You will receive 80% of the selling price and Flight Club keeps 20%.
Only Flight Club Los Angeles accepts and sells used sneakers. Flight Club New York only sells and accepts brand new sneakers.

Today, Flight Club officially opened up its largest venue in its storied existence. Flight Club is more than just a sneaker consignment shop; it’s a curator of the sneakerhead culture and earns at least some of the credit for evolving a cult-like sub-culture into a mainstream fashion phenomenon. The moment you open the double-wide glass doors, you’re instantly hit with a daunting wall of sneakers, each pair categorized with faultless effort, collectively doing their best to mimic the wall of a fortress that spans the largest wall of the entire space. Over 1,300 pairs of Converse, Euro-release-only New Balances, the rarest Air Maxes, the crispest Air Jordans, and the most celebrated Nike SBs line the proud brick wall; honestly, it’s quite overwhelming once you step in but within seconds you will realize that you’ve been consumed by the museum-ready display and the knowledgeable staff – there’s no choice but to succumb and indulge yourself in the ultimate sneakerhead experience. Opposite the sneakers is the most impressive wall of New Era and Mitchell & Ness fitted hats, set up battleship-grid style. Flight Club Broadway is now the one and only hub for the rarest kicks in all the world; its Nassau St. and Lafayette St. locations no longer remain and the Greene St. spot houses the used kicks as well as vintage apparel and gear. Flight Club Broadway is now officially open so be sure to stop in.
