^ so where is this "warehouse"? is there a number we can call?! maybe we can purchase them from the warehouse?! i've been scouring ebay too but the chances of someone a) actually owning these and b) wanting to sell them off on ebay for some strange reason is slim to none

I hear it's in Switzerland and they won't sell to individuals without a sales rep. Maybe we can con a Balenciaga rep into getting some for us! :p

Bummer. I wasn't a fan of that style. Thank you for the information though. I guess I'll have to live without them.

guys!! I FINALLY got a chance to call the balenciaga outlet in tuscany. I asked about the FW07 collection, and they said they would be recieving it in JULY... that's a long long wait!!
right now in store they have the SS07 collection, I didn't press the SA too much because she was so snobby. if you guys need any more info I can call again (maybe at a different time to make sure I don't get her again)

Maybe your friend got them at a sample sale or from a rep? They might have only been produced for the runway and then sold off afterwards.....sometimes stores even sell the samples....

Maybe there's hope! Thank you. Please tell me if your friend ever decides to part with them.

I just asked him he said he got them from the NY store during the season but had to order them, thought they're really bad quality the buckles have broken and because they're special parts for the shoes have to be repaired by balenciaga or something

sorry i didnt ask the price

Would you mind asking her about the shoes from SS07 for me? If not, it's all good.

yay jungla_juana thanks SO much for calling!! it was so sweet of you i tried to karma you but i'm not sure if it worked..hopefully it did!

do they have a website? it would be great if they do because then i can check all the time! i can definitely wait until july, perhaps by then i'll have ACTUAL money to spend instead of pretend-Visa money. sorry you had to deal with the snobby SA though! did she say what styles they would be getting and what the prices were?

i actually just saw a lego-shoe-ish style by balenciaga on ebay! it's not the exact style that we've been drooling over but very similar, i haven't seen this style before but i checked the seller's feedback and they seem to sell mainly highend (chanel) goods and the feedback is pretty good so...i think it's legit. has anyone else seen this style before?

the search continues!!!!! thanks again JJ

sorry to be flooding you guys with posts but i also found this on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...MEWA:IT&ih=003

it's a pretty good imitation of the camel cut-out bootie from FW07 yeah? the heel and sole are noticeably different but it looks ok overall! hahah it's just funny. perhaps i'll buy a pair just for fun (what the heck its only $30)!!
