Philadelphia, famously known as the “City of Brotherly Love”, is about to witness a historic moment in retail as it becomes the home of the first Michael Jordan-branded store in the United States.


The iconic “World of Flight” store, synonymous with the Jordan Brand’s unparalleled legacy, is all set to make its mark in the heart of this historic city.


As reported by Sports Illustrated, the store will find its place at 1617 Walnut St., a building steeped in history dating back to 1921. This move not only signifies a significant milestone for Nike but also for the city of Philadelphia itself.

Drawing inspiration from Philadelphia’s rich architectural heritage, Nike aims to seamlessly blend historical aesthetics with the cutting-edge ethos of the brand. 


The design concept promises to deliver a space that not only respects the local streetscape but also offers a contemporary retail experience like no other.


Nike’s application to the Philadelphia Historical Commission underscores the brand’s commitment to honoring the city’s architectural legacy while infusing it with the spirit of the Jordan Brand.

With an impressive 7,000 square feet at its disposal, the Jordan Brand intends to create a captivating showcase for its legendary sneakers and apparel. 



Despite Michael Jordan’s retirement nearly two decades ago, his iconic namesake brand continues to exert a formidable influence in the realms of sports, lifestyle, and fashion.
