Jordan Brand to Open Flight 23, First Jordan-Only Retail Store
How would you like a retail space that’s dedicated purely to Jordans? That will become a reality soon with the opening of Jordan Brand’s Flight 23 store in New York City, a dedicated Jordan Brand-only spot that the brand is putting together in conjunction with Footaction. There’s no on word when Flight 23 store will be open, but if you stroll past the future location on West 34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues you’ll notice a massive Air Jordan shoe box that currently serves as the construction barrier.

In a town accustomed to both construction and unusual sights, New Yorkers on West 34th Street between 7th and 8th Avenues—one block from Madison Square Garden—on Friday morning noticed a new 18-foot tall classic Jordan shoebox serving as a construction barrier. Behind that barrier, the Jordan Brand and Footaction teams are hard at work creating a Jordan-only retail store, the first in a series of planned premium Jordan retail experiences coming to North America.
“We’re excited to launch North America’s first Jordan Brand exclusive retail experience for athletes at the top of their game who demand the absolute best in both performance and style,” said Larry Miller, President, Jordan Brand. “We will work with Footaction to bring Flight 23 to markets across North America, and can’t imagine a better place to start than one of the best basketball cities in the world, New York.”
thats dope looks like ill be taking a trip out there when its open, haven't been out there in a few years. if i can cop some kicks cool if not o well it will just be awesome to hit it up.
It has been almost 10 years since my hometown opened the first Air Jordan Retail Store in China. Finally USA has a Jordan-Only store. That's a good news!!!
Naw not the first store, they had a flight 23 here in Charlotte NC on the south side way way back the day around 1998-2004. But unfortunately closed.
This is a lie! This will be the SECOND Air jordan store! They have one at Downtown San Francisco inside of Shiekhs and the stores are separate.
I wonder if this will spread to other Footactions? I guess it would be their rebuttal to Footlockers HOH's
If there's good stuff in there like retroes or just like a Nike outlet where you can find stuff from way back on sale that would be cool.
This store doesn't really matter if they're not gonna sell Jordans. Jordan brand ain't really what the people want. We want Jordans. If they stock it with Jordans and keep it stocked with Jordans, I'll make the trip myself. But, I'm not going up there for some Mellos and CP3's.
@Kardi pretty sure thats MJ's shoe size.
@LUX09NC Yes Sir....Flight 23 by Jordan was the name
@LUX09NCDo you remember why it closed?
@HeyImJames21Is it designed like this? Also I want pictures as proof :)
@"C.E.O." Werd, but it's hard to copp Js or Foams. I used to live in the Bronx, now i live New Jersey and when the 12s Playoffs came out back in 2012 a few cats from NYC came to Jersey to buy the 12s lol.
@RickJohnson2Couldn't have said it better man. Even if they got clothes in there you know how many Jordan hoodies, track jacket's and shirts I saw at Marshall's this year? Ain't nobody want all that jazz.
If they aren't going to stock J's year round I'd be curious to see how long this stays open and what they sell here if it doesn't close. As great as a player as he was Jordan is also known for "some" extremely poor business decisions. If it later comes out he had some hand in this I won't be surprised.
@kicks67 YES it's man ! )) but it's still kinda special for me hehe
