MANHATTAN -- New Yorkers should beware of the sneaker collectors fast-breaking to Nike retailers Saturday to pick up the latest limited edition shoes honoring New York's five boroughs.

The limited-edition kicks, which have different color schemes for each borough, go on sale at locations across New York City, including the Nike flagship store in SoHo.

The Manhattan version of the Nike Air Force 1's, dubbed the "5-Boroughs Pack," are red and white, and like the other sneakers in the collection, will retail for $135.

The Nike store in SoHo will sell the full line and host a block party for the event, but other sneaker stores will carry the shoes too. However, each borough will only sell their own versions of the collection.

Lucky retailers who will carry the limited edition shoes said the build up has been been crazy.

"We haven't seen demand like this for years. ... We get calls all day long," Vinny Cafaro, who owns BX Sports on Pelham Parkway, told the Daily News.

The sneakers will also be available online.
