Update: 01.20.2011 - 24 Kilates will only be selling these in-store because of the hand full of pairs they will get. Good luck to everyone in Barcelona.
Update: 01.19.2011 – 24 Kilates is also getting them. Waiting for a response on a message to see if I can get a date of release.
Normally don’t write on the weekends, but this can’t wait until Monday. After the Cool Cats and Colette drops, other retail spots were suppose to get a few pairs of these New Balance x La MJC x Colette M1500MJC “Vivre Sans Temps Mort”. One being Hanon as they announced in December, but that never happened. Days past and more days past that have accumulated into two full weeks with no updates from anywhere. So what happened to this shoe and the rest of the stock? Well, today I came across some info that is good and bad at the same time…
The Bad News:
Due to some unfortunate production events at New Balance, the shoes have been delayed. The original stock that was going to be split up between other stockists, will still happen, but now in a very limited amount. No word on the numbers or what actually occurred, but all the stores that were originally getting them will now share this low allocation. Sucks, but hey, at least everyone will still get another shot at these beauties.
The Good News:
Now that New Balance is ready to ship these, you can expect Hanon to finally get their stock. No date yet, but it should be close to January, 21st 2011. I say that because that’s when Sneakers N Stuff will launch their stock and that comes from the mouth of co-owner of SNS, Peter Jansson. There should be other stockist getting them, but I have no word yet as to who. Your guess is as good as mine. This post will be updated if anymore info is leaked. Good luck to everyone on grabbing a pair and if you haven’t read it, check out my Fresh Look Review with loads of detailed shots on this great shoe.
