Grand Opening : First Jordan-only Retail store opens in NYC ...

***UPDATE - The store's grand opening is TODAY @ 10AM!

"Whenever you open a store you've got to have the right product.  And you've got to have the right product 365 days of the year"- Keith Crawford, Creative Director 

FLIGHT 23 will contain the largest assortment of Jordan products compared to any other store, along with serving as a special event venue for athletes and product as well.  The store is said to have impressive sculptural architecture like a giant golden chandelier in the shape of the number 23 made of 350 jumpmen.  I was able to walk pass the store in person a few weeks ago and its' presence on the block stood out.  This definitely sounds like an experience.  I can't wait to visit it now that  it's open.  The sneakers below will be available for the opening today:   

Melo M10 – Black History Month

Check the back history of the store in the original post from 1/11/14 below...   

We’re excited to launch North America's first Jordan Brand exclusive retail experience for athletes at the top of their game who demand the absolute best in both performance and style. We will work with Footaction to bring Flight 23 to markets across North America, and can't imagine a better place to start than one of the best basketball cities in the world, New York."- Larry Miller, President- Jordan Brand.

The first North American Jordan-only retail store has arrived.  FLIGHT 23 at Footaction is one block away from Madison Square Garden in Manhattan.  With a 18-foot tall classic Jordan shoebox serving as the construction barrier on W 34th street between 7th and 8th Ave, Footaction
and Jordan Brand are behind the scenes conjuring up the design and details of the store to give a supreme Jordan retail experience.  

The opening of this store is going to be INSANE.  I'll keep you posted on the deets with that.
