Swedish Hasbeens at H&M Herald Square

I had a big moment of panic today when I was looking for the Swedish Hasbeens at H&M Herald Square. I went right to the second floor, thinking they'd be in shoes, and saw only this:

 Ack! Had I missed the whole thing? Sales staff told me people were going nuts for the shoes ("people are calling from California!"), and then sent me back downstairs to the first floor where, in my rush, I had passed by this huge Hasbeen display:

 But don't think you're free to leisurely stroll down to Herald Square any old day and pick up your size. They are going fast in the red and the lace-up. I only saw one 5 but several 6's, 7's, and 8's in the lace-up. The reds were even worse: no 5's, just 6's, 7's, and 8's. Be sure to ask someone to check the back if your size isn't on the floor; as that's how I got the 9 in the lace-up. There are no 10's, they didn't make them.

The Hasbeens are not in the H&M at 34th and Seventh, but a clerk told me they may be getting them tomorrow or Friday. This is not what the website says, however. To find Hasbeens near you click "store locator" here.
