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.
The women’s shoe is grey and features a classic image of Minnie Mouse and her signature as well.
These shoes will be available beginning tomorrow, January 7th at the Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend Health & Fitness Expo at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex via the New Balance Virtual Queue. Runners can sign up at NBvirtualqueue.com using your bib number starting Wednesday, January 7 at 6:00 am. All other guests can sign up Thursday, January 8 at 6:00 am. Set your alarms!
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!
