New Balance Disney Running Shoes - Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Inspired Shoes
At Last....Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse Themed Running Shoes!!
If you were lucky enough to be at the Walt Disney World Marathon Expo in Florida, or the Tinkerbell Half Marathon Expo in California, you might have been able to catch a glimpse of the newest craze sweeping the runDisney nation. AND....if you were quick on your feet (get it?), and were able to purchase yourself a pair of these limited edition New Balance co-branded Disney shoes, sporting Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse inspired prints, consider yourself in a very elite club.
The Disney Half and Full Marathon Experience
Now, if you've ever had the pleasure of entering a Disney running event, you already know that it is not uncommon to see a grown adult running a full marathon in a full length Cinderella gown. Finding it hard to imagine running alongside several men dressed as Peter Pan? Captain Hook? Trust me when I say you don't have to look far. And now, thanks to this new partnership between Disney and New Balance, your feet can get dressed up too!!!
Hey There, Hi There, Ho There - Where Can I Get Mine???
New Balance produced an intial run of 1,000 pairs of these co-branded shoes that evoke Disney's most popular and iconic characters. The woman's version, or should I say the "Minnie Mouse" version, sports her classic red and white polka dot dress pattern, while the men's design was inspired by Mickey's black tuxedo look and is dotted with a Mickey Mouse shaped pattern. If popular, New Balance will produce more. The shoes were sold at the Expos for $125. If you weren't able to get them at the expo, fear not, they are making appearances on Ebay, Craigslist, and the like. Because they are limited edition, there's no telling how long they will be offered.

The 860v3 Shoe.....
Even though this shoe is wrapped in runDisney fun and silliness, the New Balance running shoe is serious business. The 860v3 is actually the go-to shoe for runners who need support due to overpronation. Built on the PL-1 last and utilizing ABZORB heel crash technology, it's designed to provide a light, smooth and stable run. So not only will you look great in this shoe, you'll feel great too.
So, the next time you find yourself training for a runDisney endurance event, M-I-C....See you there!!! You know the rest.....
