2014 New Balance runDisney Shoes Revealed!

Today was a big day for runDisney enthusiasts. The first ever On the Road to Disney Meetup was held in Atlanta this morning. As usual, Social Media made it very easy to follow along with those who were there for the meetup and to hear all of the big announcements, particularly on Twitter with the use of the #OntheRoadtoDisneyParks hashtag.

The biggest announcement at the meetup this morning was the reveal of details about the new 2014 New Balance runDisney shoes.

At the Wine and Dine Half Marathon Meetup, New Balance announced the addition of race specific sole inserts and shoelace charms to the shoes. This morning, New Balance announced additional details about the shoes. The highlights of the 2014 shoes include:

  • The same model shoe will be utilized for the 2014 shoes as the one used for the 2013 shoes
  • Sorcerer Mickey will be featured on the men’s shoes and Pink Minnie will be featured on the women’s shoes
  • Kids sizes of both Sorcerer Mickey and Pink Minnie will also be available

Just like in 2013 when New Balance revealed the first runDisney shoes, the 2014 shoes will only be available for purchase at runDisney events, and will be first revealed and available at Marathon Weekend in January.

For more details about the shoes, be sure to check out the runDisney video that was shown at the meetup this morning.

With Marathon Weekend being the first runDisney event at which I will be running, I am very excited about the reveal of the new shoes! Preston and I have been extra vigilant about watching our spending in order to ensure that we can have a great time during our upcoming trip to Disney World, and I will definitely be crossing my fingers in hopes of securing a pair of the new shoes for myself at the expo.

QOTD: Did you purchase the 2013 version of the New Balance runDisney shoes? Will you make it a priority to purchase a pair in 2014?

    I have the 2013 shoes, but I’m not excited about pink. Since they’re also stability shoes again, that’s two strikes. I’ll leave them to others.

  2. I’ve only been to one runDisney event so haven’t made my way to the exclusive shoe but those look pretty cool!! I’ll be at Princess in February.

  3. Wow, talk about branding! Disney sure does know what it’s doing. It would be fun to have race-specific shoes to train and race in.

    Has anyone heard if the 2013 model will be available next year in addition to the new model? Particularly at the Anaheim expo in January?
