2015 Princess Weekend Merchandise & runDisney New Balance Shoes

Probably the best part about runDisney race weekends is all of the exclusive merchandise available at the Health & Fitness Expo.  There’s nothing like having some great commemorative items to take home with you to remember your big accomplishment!

Princess Half Marathon Weekend is right around the corner and there are some great new items you’ll be able to pick up.  Let’s check them out!

Frozen has taken over as the main theme of the weekend and you can find snowflakes and characters on many of the items.  There is also the addition of a pink runDisney Magic Band to go with the blue design that was introduced over Marathon weekend.

This is the 2nd year for the Glass Slipper Challenge and they have knocked it out of the park with these turquoise and black designs.  I just LOVE that wine glass!

New Balance and runDisney have released the new design for the 2015 shoes today and there is something definitely missing…color!  Well that is on purpost you see…  This limited edition 990v3 design features Retro Mickey and Minnie inspired by Steamboat Willie and celebrates the classic heritage of Disney and New Balance.  This is a lighter weight, stability shoe that provides support and superior cushioning.

The men’s shoe is black and features and images of Mickey Mouse as Steamboat Willie on the heel along with his signature.

If you are into more colorful shoes on your feet, fear not because the 2014 designs will also be available at the Expo.

And for all of you West Coasters running during Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend, these will be available at that Health & Fitness Expo as well.

So what do you think??  Do you like the new retro design??

Personally, I’m a big fan!  One of the things that I love about New Balance shoes are they’re retro looks.  In fact, I even own black and grey pairs of the classic 574s!  So to incorporate runDisney into a similar shoe is pretty rad in my book.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!
