They did. But few, if any sizes, loaded on the website.

I am not sure what happened with this release in the US. Full size run was sitting on Kith Europe’s site for hours. I would have predicted these would have been an easy kop on the US site since resellers don’t appear all that interested in them.

I would keep checking on the website in case there was a big glitch.
That said, awesome color way, so maybe people loved it.

Those dusty rose V1 are pretty nice. Thought about dropping the cash on that pair. Maybe they didn’t get all their stock yet.

I heard anecdotally that stock for the v1 was the lowest among the four releases. But maybe stock will be reallocated from the Euro website or any unsold stock from the physical stores.
They were definitely the ones that both my wife and l wanted. I feel like the resellers bring their own biases in and misjudge the popularly of the more subtle color ways.

First pair of NB in probably 15 years. I was blown away by the packaging/presentation as well. Very well done, especially compared to other brand’s collabs.

Now I’m debating if I also need the UA 990 v4…

I picked up the 990v4 (my favorite of the 4). So yeah I would say you do need it.

Hate to say it, but you need the v4, which is the best of the pack IMHO.

Anyone know where to get any colorway of a 990v1 in size 9? Navy preferred, but I'll take anything TBH.

NB released black and grey v1s (GR) a couple of months ago. They may still be on the website. Not sure off top of my head which boutiques stocked them.

There will be a navy v1 GR soon (don’t think it has released yet).

Next week on the 30th, NB is releasing the Teddy v1 in the moonbeam colorway. Will be available at NB and other sneaker boutiques.

The European boutiques dropped the Teddy v1 (Marblehead) this week so you may be able to find a pair on-line (will be expensive after shipping).

Be careful about buying NB from Stockx since Stockx has been passing off fakes of the Teddy and collab models.

Thanks, the black and grey are sold out in most common sizes. Very large and very small are still available. Will see if I can nab the navy or moonbeam when they come out.

I'm guessing the same retailers that had the sea salt 990v3 will have the moonbeams? Does anyone have a list?

Check the site periodically for restocks. It is general release so there is a chance of a restock.

There is also a navy v1 collab with Carhartt that is expected to release in the second half of the year. Looks good also.
