The 2016 runDisney New Balance Shoes Have Been Revealed!!!!!!!

Apparently, while I was sleeping for work today, the huge news hit about the new designs for the 2016 runDisney New Balance shoes! I am beyond excited for these shoes. They are gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!! They surpass anything released in 2015, in my own personal opinion! I was right in my prediction, in that a princess is getting a shoe. I was just wrong about which princess! Mickey and Minnie are getting new shoes, as well, along with Dumbo!!!!!!!



I am starting with the new princess inspired shoes because they make me cry with glee, I am so excited. Ariel is my favorite Princess and she now has her own shoe! It is stunning! These are the Ariel Vazee Pace shoes. The New Balance Vazee Pace is a low heel-toe offset, performance neutral running shoe best suited for uptempo training and a neutral or supinated foot motion. I have to be honest. I don’t care what it is designed for, I just want them. The purple, green and red just work together and scream Ariel. I told you purple would be involved!!!! There is, what looks to be, a seaweed design on the front and Ariels’s picture on the back. I can’t wait to get a closer look at them at the expo Wednesday, January 6th!




The Dumbo Vazee Pace shoes are the next ones to hit and these are more neutral in color, for those who don’t like the boldness of a shoe like Ariel’s. In the picture you see above, you can see the likeness of the shoe to Dumbo in his attraction at Magic Kingdom. I like the pop of yellow, like the color that Dumbo wears. These are the same design as the Ariel shoes in their use and benefit.



Mickey and Minnie put on a show in the Red Carpet Minnie and Mickey 860v6s shoes. Can I just say that I was right again! I predicted a yellow shoe! It may not be Belle’s (which means that Belle doesn’t look like she is getting a New Balance shoe anytime soon), but it is yellow. The Minnie shoe is the yellow shoe, representing the stunning yellow gown she is known to wear on the red carpet. It even has her signature bow, similar to the concept of her previous Minnie Mouse runDisney shoes.  I am going to need these, too. Mickey is all decked out in his signature colors of red, black and yellow. Perhaps this is to represent his red carpet look in his tux! There are not clear, fabulous pictures of these 2 shoes yet but it’s only a couple of days away now!  “The 860v6 has a sleeker fit than its predecessor that’s more secure on your foot and more stylish when you wear it post-run. Responsive, supportive, comfortable…it sets a new standard in running shoes for overpronation, ” according to the New Balance website.

The only way to get these shoes, as of now, is by being at the expo. You can sign up for a spot in the virtual queue, as per the usual, if you are registered for an event. Otherwise, I am trying to see if I will have access to a personal shopper for you, to obtain these shoes that way. Stay tuned for more info on that!

Who else is excited about these announcements? Who is going to be in the crazy line at the expo Wednesday??

I expect these to all be amazing sellers. Good luck to all those participating in the runDisney evetns this coming weekend and good luck getting a pair of these shoes!! Let us know if you love them in the comment box below!

  • I can’t believe you would actually contact a personal shopper for people to get these shoes that did not train or pay for the race. It’s people like you that make it so had for the runners to get the merchandise that is meant to commemorate our accomplishment(s). When you have trained and put in the hours and time commitment it takes to do these races, that’s when you should be entitled to the merchandise that goes along with it.

  • Now I know why I can’t get a pair, because people using the personal shoppers to take spots away from the ones who train hard and deserve a reward for their work. I hope soon Disney and NB will have a system that uses your bib number to allow you on the virtual line as well limit the amounts that people can buy without a bib number.

  • I participate in runDisney events, as well. I get in the virtual queue and obtain my own shoes legally. I am also not in the market to sell things myself. I just like to keep people informed. I do not have to use a personal shopper BUT for those inquiring, I try to help. I am sorry you have had difficulty. I do know they are not supposed to let you buy without a bib but I am not sure if they enforce it. I work with disabled children and teens, I am not against finding a way for them to get the shoes that will put smiles on their faces. If I find a way for one then everyone knows. Sorry you do not agree.

  • Personal shoppers are not the way to go to get these shoes. We pay good money to run in these events and some of us do not even get a chance to get items because of personal shoppers. It is not just shoes either. I get that some people do not have the means to travel this far but it is just not fair to the runners.

  • I can only hope one day Disney limits these products to registered runners. Last year marathon weekend was okay, but for Princess I had to buy my D&B purse from a third party. Apparently personal shoppers (who charge a FEE to do you a favor. Some quite a sizable fee…….) and eBay flippers got there first day, first thing cleaning out their entire stock in a matter of hours. I love these and thank goodness they have a queue this year!!!

  • Possibly you could contact New Balance directly to provide these shoes to disabled children & teens, thereby cutting out personal shopper (and their huge upcharge)? Most organizations are wonderful about working with charitable donations, Disney and New Balance included. Playing the disabled children & teens card here is a bit of a cop out. If that were the case and you wanted these disabled children & teens that you work with to be able to access the shoes, you would directly email those you are working with or publish that information in a community directly targeted to them. That’s not what you’re doing here at all (and you know it). You are publicly urging the general public to use a personal shopper and thereby limiting the inventory to the people actually running the race.

    No one would deny a disabled child an item that might put a smile on their face, so that’s a bit of a low blow. While I don’t doubt your personal intentions, that is clearly not the intention of every person reading this blog. By urging everyone to use a personal shopper, you are encouraging a practice that damages the experience for the runDisney community, which you yourself are apart of.

  • I hope people understand that this event is NOT exclusive to runners, that’s why is a EXPO for this items, the only one with power to control Personal shoppers is Disney so I wish they limit the items per person to one not 4 per style. A personal shopper buy it for somebody that is going to use it and that is a big difference from a Ebay seller that just want to make a huge amount of money and clear the stores. Medals are for runners and merchandise for shoppers.

  • I am just a regular shopper. I am not a runner. I cannot make it to events due to my disability. I would just like to own a pair of sneakers. I would pay the price. I agree NB and Disney should have a better system to make it more available to those who run and to those who cannot make it to the races.I think it is pretty very unfair. For all that Disney does and stands for this should be one thing I think that they can address since it is done every year and people look forward to and a product they want and are willing to pay for. But outsiders are just that “Outsiders”. Pretty sad for Disney to be treating us this way. I still won’t sign up for any events, or go out of my way to purchase any in or out of this inhumane way. Disney can fix this and should fix this if they have any kind of Pixie Dust magic, or care about us people who care about them who also care about Disney.

  • […] Remember a few short weeks ago when it was announced that there was a change to the costume policy at Disney Parks? This came into play at the same time other security measures were added to enhance our safety at the Happiest place on Earth. I don’t think then, with that announcement in mind, it should be any surprise that Disney announced new rules for runDisney race costumes ahead of the 2016 Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend. […]
