Sneaker consignment pioneer Flight Club is launching its first pop-up shop in Miami Design District. Flight Club Miami will offer the city’s largest selection of rare and collectible sneakers for sale along with special programming to celebrate local Miami artists and street culture. The pop-up will stock a wide range of sneakers from the latest Off-Whites and Yeezys to the most sought-after shoes and past releases.
Established in New York City in 2005, Flight Club changed the landscape of sneaker retail as the first consignment store to offer rare, authenticated sneakers. The shop has since established itself as a cultural institution in the global sneaker market, bringing over 2 million visitors per year to its flagship stores in NYC and Los Angeles. Flight Club Miami marks its first retail expansion since the brand opened its second store in LA in 2008.
“Miami is such a diverse and expressive city, you see this reflected in its people and their unique sense of style,” says Eddy Lu, CEO and Co-founder of GOAT Group. “As one of our top markets, we’re excited to bring a premier shopping destination where our local Flight Club community and Miami visitors can connect with all types of sneaker enthusiasts and shop authentic sneakers.”
The pop-up launch follows Flight Club’s merger with GOAT, along with a funding round of $60 million announced in February 2018. The two brands, operating under GOAT Group, now run four retail locations in the United States, with 500 employees and $97.6 million venture funding to date.
Flight Club Miami is open now through mid 2019 at Miami Design District: 3910 NE 1st Ave., Miami, FL. Hours are Monday – Saturday 11 AM to 9 PM, and Sunday 11 AM to 8 PM.
