“Great selection Horrible Service”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Not worth the trip to NYC! The staff is the rudest! Don't go!! Go somewhere where your money is appreciated. I tried to ask one question & the person wouldn't even turn her head to look at me. Really...they just don't care.

“A Must See for Sneaker Fans”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

Flight Club is the holy grail (or it would be if there wasn't already a store in LA by that name) for sneaker collectors/fans/heads.
If you like sneakers, this is it. They have all the big name brands, all the big name kicks and colourways, you name it they have it.
But! Remember - they're a consignment store. They don't stock retail. So what you're buying is a shoe someone else brought to the store to be sold on their behalf. With a rate of about 80/20 you're looking at often higher than average resale value on kicks. Buying here though, comes with a guarantee of authenticity - and that's what brings in the customers.

Most kicks line a wall, wrapped in shrink-wrap plastic for protection. The harder to find and therefore more expensive kicks, are found in a display cabinet in the corner.

It's kind of a touristy thing to do for those with sneaker love, but definitely do it even if you don't intend to buy - it's too much fun not to.

“Sneakerhead capital ”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

Amazing selection of shoes! Although a little pricey, everything was perfect. Nice selection of shirts and hats. Needs more seating. Staff helpful.

“Trainer heaven!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Every colour under the sun! We were looking for Nike Air Max trainers as gifts and had been round and round when this shop was recommended. Wish we'd gone there first!! The one we wanted were around $120 which is far cheaper than we can get them in the UK. The shoes are 'cling wrapped' which initially looks bizarre but I guess cuts down on damaged stock. Friendly helpful assistant and we left happy! Oh and slightly hard to find as there isn't a sign that we could see and the windows are smoky so keep your eyes peeled if you are going to look for it!!
