Stadium Goods will open a new retail shop in Chicago on Thursday, October 1st. This is the second brick-and-mortar location for the sneaker and streetwear marketplace.

Located along the Magnificent Mile at 60 East Walton Street, the two-level store spans 6,000 square feet and brings the culture of sneakers and streetwear to Chicago’s high-end shopping district. Additionally, the Market Center located at 1719 North Damen Avenue in Wicker Park, will open for consignment intake on Monday, September 21st. (Due to COVID-19 restrictions, consignment drop-off is by appointment only)

Following the success of its flagship store in New York City, Stadium Goods’ Chicago store illustrates its continued innovation in both the luxury retail and resale markets, as well as allowing it different channels to engage customers. Chicago customers will now have access to Stadium Goods’ curated selection of sneakers and streetwear apparel at the new location, including a second-floor gallery space to show off its unrivaled collections.

“Chicago has an incredible sneaker culture in its own right, beginning with the ‘Chicago’ Jordan 1 to being the hometown of contemporary sneaker design leaders like Kanye West and Virgil Abloh,” said John McPheters, co-founder and co-CEO of Stadium Goods. “Stadium Goods is built on a foundation of culture and community, and being a part of the Chicago community was a huge draw.”

“By being on the Magnificent Mile, we’re in the company of some of the finest luxury brands in the world,” added Jed Stiller, co-founder and co-CEO of Stadium Goods. “The products we sell are luxury items for this generation, so we fit right in. We saw the opportunity to bring Stadium Goods’ model of a fully authentic aftermarket presented with luxury retail aesthetics to a city with a rich sneaker history.”


  1. Hope they realize there are no sneakers in Chicago, they are called gym shoes. It’s a Chicago thing.
