If you’re a sneakerhead (or not) chances are you’ve heard the raving reviews Flight Club receives on the daily.  For a decade, Flight Club has been the middle passage for buying, selling, and trading limited edition and vintage sneakers. People from all over the world have trekked to the two exclusive US stores to step foot in the heavenly kingdom of sneakers that are difficult to stumble upon anywhere else. The sign-less storefront could initially fool first-time guests into thinking less of the place. However, once inside, it’s as if you reached the end of the rainbow and are now aimlessly forced to sift through kicks and apparel for purchase. Shopaholics may want to stay at home for this one, because you’re sure to walk out with more than you bargained for. —Cedric Hall
