They are getting hyped up right now due to celebrities/artists wearing them and mentioning them in songs.
As far as copping ASAP before they sell out it depends on what model and color you're looking for.
Arenas - Black/Red/White are seasonal online and in stores for the most part with some new color combinations appearing each season. Black are easy to obtain but red almost always sells out in a day or two online and can be hard to track down in stores.
Pleateds - Aren't available online so you need to know an SA at Balenciaga or a high end department store (Ex. Barney's) and possibly get on a wait list. All the colors are pretty popular for the pleateds but the mint is the most elusive and red seems to be a favorite as well.
I've been on a list since around April for red and black pleated and just got the call for my CC info this past weekend.
