Best Sneaker Swap Meet


On a forgotten block over by NYU, one sneakerhead’s loss is another’s gain. At FLIGHT CLUB NEW YORK, a just-opened consignment shop—you can check inventory online at—nearly all the stock comes from cash-strapped collectors looking to flip old pairs that have been sitting on ice, including limited-run Nike samples, shockingly rare special issues (Black Album AF1s in my size, if someone’s feeling generous), and best of all, Japanese BAPEs that the BAPE store hasn’t even imported yet.
