With the stage set for serious international competition, gear from around the globe finds its way into our hearts, minds and gym bags.
The coveted Disney-inspired trainers were unveiled this week ahead of the Walt Disney World Marathon. The limited edition runDisney collection from New Balance includes the Dumbo Vazee Pace, Ariel Vazee Pace and the Red Carpet Mickey and Minnie 860v6s. All shoes will be available at the Walt Disney World Marathon Expo starting today. Each shoe features colors, designs and elements from their respective characters, such as Dumbo’s signature inside, the color of Ariel’s fin, and Mickey and Minnie’s classy look of black, red, yellow and white.
New Balance and Disney partnered to create a “virtual queue” to help eager runners reserve a spot in line to try on a pair of their magical sneaks. The shoes are available first to registered participants, who can enter the queue with their bib number, followed by the general public who will attend the expo.
