To you and those who are always waiting and hoping it'll hit the sales section (more prominent on NT I guess, keep seeing regrets over for passing up on a pair), if you really want the shoes, just call the Balenciaga boutique, have the SA reserve your pairs (pay up front?) and they will call you when they are in. Simple as that.

fucking idiot designers

Top left (greyscale on white soles) pair is really nice. Those are the first edition of this Balenciaga sneaker I've ever seen that I'd buy.

The style has a name, right? uhoh.gif "Arena" is the wide/square-tongued sneaker, what are the 'wavey eyelet strip' Balenciagas (e.g. above) called?

Right, and "that's not black, it's just the opposite of white."

noob question but why do arenas sell out so fast? Some of them are sold out in all sizes like a day after it drops on a store's site.

 

There can only be so many people dropping 500+ on a pair of arenas every drop date

They do not produce hundreds of thousands pairs like Nike.

Every time I talk to an SA in the boutique or at Barneys, they always say they only get one to two pairs per size.

it also helps that people favorite hip-hop artist or bball player has been seen wearing them.

damn, 1 or 2 pairs per size is pretty limited

 

i know they dont mass produce like nike but i thought there would at least be a couple of sizes for each size as opposed to one or two

i never wait for something to hit sale if i really want it. did my question imply that in any way?

post #19691 of 21762
those aren't arenas, but i don't think anyone figured out their specific names for good. i remember some sites called them cotes, some resilles, iirc. we had this discussion last year w/ the pleateds.

the arenas are the super wide-laced ones.

I usually wait til they hit matches or ln-cc and buy at full price since it comes out to about $100 less than boutique, plentiful sizes and no tax. 

Gone are the days of stuff hitting sales, most things sell out much quicker because of hype, demand, and probably instagram. $500 is like half a weeks paycheck so it's not out of reach for most people, however a big portion of people that are nowadays buying these in bulk are stylists that a) can afford it. b) write it off. c) need these in order to please their clients. 

 

and those new balenciagas look like straight up sb dunks
