The first Jordan brand store in North America, officially named "Flight 23",  opened its doors in New York City this past Saturday morning a ribbon-cutting shoelace-untying ceremony.

Carmelo Anthony and director Spike Lee were the two highest-profile celebrities in attendance (along with Jordan brand president Larry Miller and a group of shoe execs), though 50 Cent stopped by the store later.

The store’s interior is designed to resemble Tinker Hatfield’s iconic Air Jordan 3, with the black and grey elephant print. There are also golden chandelier that’s made of 350 pieces of golden Jordan 'Jumpman' logos.

Michael Jordan himself was not present, but a bunch of his shoes are. According to Complex, these are the shoes available right now.
