We all know that the sneaker game is not cheap. You can find deals here and there but for some of the unique and rare items you can spend a small fortune. Flight Club, one of the first consignment shops in the world is now allowing you to finance your sneakers.
Instead of dropping, lets say $3,500 on the Eminem Air Jordan 2, you can now make monthly payments $307.52 using Affirm. Payment plans also depend on how long it will take you to pay it off. It appears they allow a 3, 6 and 12 month plan while APR is from 10-30%. In a nutshell, if you purchased the Eminem pair the interest rate would bring the price up a few hundred.
Typically you would finance a house or car, but the growing hype for sneakers have lead Flight Club to be the first shop to provide financing. While prices are already high on FC then when you throw in interest rates, it’s hard to justify. If you want the shoes bad enough, we would recommend you buying in full.
