my local spot has 1300s for $130, which is retail. you have to do some digging around. this is like the 4th time ive said this in here.
I remember you saying that.
I'm not sure why your shop hasn't raised their prices, maybe they are just late in doing it, but everyone else has raised theirs with the last few releases.
The prices have jumped on newbalance.com to $150 for 1300s, which I know they weren't charging that long ago.
Pickyourshoes has the LG 1300 for 130, with the navy/steel grey/blue denim all at 140, but the recent releases are at 150.
On sites like Packer, you can see their older release 1300s sitting at $140, while one of the recent releases is at $150, and the most recent release is at $160.
The same thing with their 998s. Older releases are at $130, with the newest 998 that just came out at $150.
You can even look at this picture that someone posted from NB, that looks like the suggested retail price is now $160.
