Last year, the Financial Times reported that the sneaker resale industry was valued at around $1 billion. That’s a drop in the bucket of the $55 billion global sneaker industry, of which about $28 billion is in the U.S., according to NPD analyst Matt Powell. But the numbers reflect the basic economic principle of supply and demand. Limited-edition releases have become commodities themselves, and can fetch an insane amount on the aftermarket—as much as $15,000 for a pair of Undefeated Jordan IVs. Josh Luber of Campless points out in the same FT article that in 2013, $62.7 million was spent copping Jordans off eBay alone.

And eBay’s facing some stiff competition from alternative platforms ranging from social media like Instagram to specialized peer-to-peer e-commerce sites like Grailed. But the business of buying and selling online can feel like a full-time job, especially for sneakerheads who have 9-to-5s and may not have the time to travel to the post office and wait to ship out a pair, or the weary sellers who are rightfully anxious about forking over a ton of cash for kicks that could turn out to be totally bogus.

Those are just some of the reasons why the sneaker resale retail concept store flourishes, and for the longest time, one shop has unequivocally owned that space—Flight Club. Now, former club owner and hospitality expert Jed Stiller has teamed up with John McPheters, e-commerce veteran and the man behind Flight Club's website, on a novel concept that combines sneaker resale with a top-notch customer-oriented experience: Stadium Goods.
