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 comes on the heels of 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, according to today's press release.
