24 Kilates X New Balance 1700 – Gaudi (2008)

Getting a trainer through something like the SNKRS App used to be a lot more complicated than it is now. In this “Blog Story”, @maksmonster tells one such story. Getting the New Balance 177 X 24 Kilates from a modernist set isn’t easy. Especially when you read that the shoe came out in very few quantities and that this pair is only available in Barcelona.

New Balance 1700 X 24 Kilates’ Modernist Bag

When this trainer was released 12 years ago in 2008, I absolutely had to have it. Two weeks after the release, I happened to be on vacation in Barcelona. The trainer hype wasn’t as big as it is now, so I emailed them and asked if they could keep this pair for me. Unfortunately, this is not possible due to the limited release of 144 pairs. 2 weeks later, when I arrived in Barcelona, I went to the store, where I saw they were already in the display case. I asked if they had a pair left, and the employee told me that they received a spare pair that day and went to get it for me. He came back with the pair as if it was meant to be and it was my size too. I’ve rarely had such luck and I doubt I’d be any better. As far as I’m concerned, this is the coolest pair ever and definitely won’t disappear from my collection! “.
