Well before select media got a chance to check out the hottest store opening in Chicago this fall, the new Jordan Brand Flagship — informally known as Station 23, formally as 32 S. State, a reference to its downtown address — drew lined-up sneakerheads up and down State Street.

Nope, the Force isn’t with the heads who’ll be at Saturday’s opening of Station 23 but Jumpman will, so will special D & Davis Show guest Christopher Cason of Slam and Hoop Magazines — check Chris out with the guys tomorrow morning on chicagolandsportsradio.com prior to his covering the big store opening.
In the meantime, take a look at some exclusive images from the Thursday open house provided by another of our guys, the ultimate Chicago basketball insider, Bryan Crawford:
