As a sneakerhead growing up in a small town in Georgia, I always wanted to visit Flight Club to see the extensive lineup in stock. We didn’t have any shops comparable, and I guess that goes for almost anyone who grew up outside of a select number of cities worldwide. Looking at their website and sneaker forums was about as close as we could get to seeing some of the rarer pairs that weren’t released to chain retailers. Flight Club is a mecca for sneakerheads. It is like a sneaker museum where you can purchase the works on display. 812 Broadway is now their main location in NYC, but their 254 Greene Street location has a good stock of vintage hats, vintage clothing, and used sneakers. It is definitely worth a visit if you are in NYC or LA. To make a purchase check out their site here.

Street artist Alec Monopoly was commissioned by EMM Group to paint a mural that covers the ongoing construction site of a major nightlife venue they are building. I was fortunate enough to have stumbled across it in the Lower East Side of Manhattan, while roaming the streets of NYC. It is an awesome work and features some of Alec’s common signature characters. Check it out soon because once the construction is done it will be gone.
While in NYC, I made a quick visit to Supreme. The flagship shop is still in its original location at 274 Lafayette Street. Supreme was founded in 1994 and has since become an iconic brand amongst the skateboarding culture and streetwear enthusiasts alike.
