About Us

Empire Sports in Oak Park is a new one-stop shop for your fitness and sportswear needs.   

Not only can you find entrepreneur Michaelyn Roberson’s brand Noir Sportswear in store, but you can also find apparel for your favorite sports team, purchase school uniforms or get customized items, adding on school and individual names. 

“When I started out, the brand was just focused on women,” said Roberson, 35, a Detroit native who now lives in Oak Park, “and I wanted to create something that was more inclusive, especially when we talk about living healthier lifestyles.”
