Since 2005, Flight Club has been the most trusted source for sneaker seekers and sellers, effectively becoming the world's #1 sneaker marketplace.
With a tradition rooted in guaranteed authentic merchandise — a reputation that began in 1999 with vintagekicks.com — Flight Club established itself as the premier location for both customers and consignors alike. For more than a decade, this has been the most reliable source for customers demanding authentic merchandise; and it’s the most hassle-free process for independent sellers looking to move their inventory.
The first store opened its doors in April 2005 at 254 Greene Street in New York, immediately expanding Flight Club’s consigning and selling operations. The brand explored locations throughout SoHo and the Financial District — and briefly popped up in Japan — before adding a California shop at 503 N Fairfax Ave in Los Angeles and settling in at 812 Broadway in New York.
The do-it-yourself nature of the Internet, from building your own website to arranging auctions and classified listings, hasn’t always been conducive to effectively selling sneakers. VintageKicks.com developed the model in 1999, arranging today’s best practices for showcasing and selling sneakers to prospective customers around the world. Flight Club mastered those fundamentals.
Consigning with Flight Club truly is sneaker selling simplified. The most active step a consignor takes when arranging an 80/20 consignment relationship with Flight Club is providing the merchandise — and that can be arranged by mail on sell.flightclub.com, or by dropping items off at the stores in New York and Los Angeles.
Flight Club stands by your property. They shoot detailed, high-resolution pictures for e-commerce; market high-demand sneakers and obscure classics across its growing social media channels; and they handle in-store sales, storage, and shipping to destinations around the world. And after those sneakers move into the customers' hands, checks valued at 80% of the final sale prices are cut every Tuesday for consignors whose items sold throughout the previous week. That simple. Sellers don't need to bargain, worry about any kind of payment fraud, or personally carry high volumes of product to mail carriers.
It’s what Flight Club does each and every day at industry-leading volumes. It’s an airtight system that’s been at the core of the business since 1999 that no other marketplace can match.
NOWHERE BUT HERE
From limited editions to unworn vintage sneakers, Flight Club has fresh pairs of your must-haves and your sneaker grails. Today, Flight Club welcomes thousands of daily customers and ship hundreds of sneakers around the world from its two locations. And they’re always brand new and guaranteed authentic.
With Flight Club, customers don’t need to camp outside the stores or stay connected to the Internet for raffles, lotteries or RSVP alerts. There are no preorders or reservations. As long as the item is in stock, all customers are empowered with the same opportunity to acquire everything they want.
Flight Club is the only place where you can still try on those hard-to-find sneakers — whether they released a decade ago or they're an unreleased Friends & Family pair — and decide if they’re right for you. Whether it’s a rare collaboration that only released internationally, or a limited running sneaker that was exclusive to a small boutique, Flight Club connects you with the items you want.
