runDisney announces 4 new pairs of New Balance sneakers for the Walt Disney World Marathon

In celebration of Walt Disney World Marathon Weekend, we’re excited to reveal the 2016 Limited Edition New Balance runDisney Collection, which 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 January 6th, 2016.

Inspired by Dumbo, the Dumbo Vazee Pace features the neutral cushioning of our Vazee Pace to help you fly through the race course. Elements of Dumbo are hidden throughout the shoe, including his signature inside the shoe.


The Ariel Vazee Pace brings our favorite mermaid to life from the main colors and textures of her signature look to the small details sprinkled throughout the shoe. If you’re heading down for race weekend, make sure these kicks become a part of your world.




Last, but certainly not least, Mickey and Minnie put on a show in the Red Carpet Minnie and Mickey 860v6s. This shoe is always ready for its close-up.



If you’re headed to the race expo and are eager to get your hands on these new kicks, the wait is almost over. All of the shoes will be available at the expo in the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex starting Wednesday, January 6th. The Dumbo and Ariel Vazee Pace will be available for $124.95, while the Red Carpet Minnie and Mickey 860v6s will be available for $139.95. In addition, a kids Dumbo and Ariel 860v6 will be available for $79.95.

The early bird gets the kicks!  To minimize waiting in line for shoes on race weekend, we’ve created a virtual queue to let you know when it’s your turn. To begin, runners can sign up at using your bib number starting Wednesday, January 6th, at 6:00 AM EST, and all other guests can sign up Thursday, January 7th, Friday, January 8th and Saturday, January 9th, starting at 6:00 AM EST each day.  Be sure to visit to get all the details on reserving a pair and pick-up.

Be sure to check for all the latest announcements, inventory availability and updates throughout the event weekend.

    I’m new to the New Balance Disney race shoes. Can anyone purchase these shoes? If so can you order them on line or do you have to be in Disney during a race? Thanks in advance for any help you can send my way.

    Is it possible to order a pair of these shoes after the Marathon? I was there this past weekend but did not see these until after the expo 🙁

  3. Got my girls these New Balance sneaks and they hate them. Now trying to sell them second hand to try and get some of our money back. They are back in Nike’s again and are happy little campers with happy feet.
