You may remember the post I wrote about runDisney and New Balance being a match made in heaven when the two brands announced their new partnership. Well, I still am of the same beliefs, and even more so now that I have my own pair!!!
I was lucky enough to snag a pair of these limited edition 860v3’s that you can only get at runDisney expos. Bobby and Jen were both able to get a coveted pair as well. I love how they have men’s and women’s versions!
The two brands wanted to be able to reach as much of the running population as they could, so a popular stability shoe was chosen that is also lightweight while still being supportive. Not to mention, they are just gosh darn cute. We wore them around the parks and I got several compliments and loved the smooth ride.
I realize that not everyone can wear a stability shoe, but that shouldn’t stop you from making the purchase! They are great to cross train in as well as wear around town, to work, and of course, in Disney World. I didn’t think I would be able to run in them, but I tired it out and really enjoyed the experience! Maybe Minnie mouse added in some extra pixie dust to this special kicks just for runDisney runners?
Doesn’t it look glorious on it’s stand from the expo? I may have had to wipe some drool off the glass.
Kicking back on the boat in Disney World. Love the side by side of the men’s vs. women’s shoe.
While the expo lines were long, to me this product is totally worth it. For a runDisney fanatic like me, it was a no brainer. I mean, I have to buy shoes anyway right? So why not have THE cutest shoes around, that not only sport my love for runDisney but also for New Balance? I can’t wait to see what they release next. Maybe it will be different models of shoe but in the same pattern? Or maybe new characters? I don’t know for sure, but what I do know is this new product has made a lot of running fans very happy, and will continue to do so for a long time.
QOTD: What are your thoughts on these shoes? What other colors/characters would you like to see?
