****EDIT***** According to New Balance via Twitter “We have decided to try something different with our release schedules and are planning some exciting surprises for 2015. Stay tuned”. Perhaps there are more new designs to come as the year progresses?***
Here it is….the first pictures of the 2015 New Balance runDisney shoes. As reported a few days ago, two new designs were to be unveiled this morning. Here is our first look at what is in store for New Balance/runDisney fans for 2015
The new style will be available this weekend at the Walt Disney World Marathon Expo. Also available will be the Mickey/Minne and Cinderella/Goofy designs from 2014.
So what do you think? Love them? Hate them? Personally, I am disappointed. The men’s shoe isn’t so bad, but I am so NOT in love with the gray ladies’ design–and I am a HUGE fan of gray! I know many people, including myself, were expecting designs that would perhaps reflect the themes of the new runDisney races (come on, you KNOW you were secretly hoping for a Star Wars shoe!). The gray/black design of the 2015 shoe combined with the continued availability of the 2014 designs is not the creative genius that I have come to expect from New Balance and runDisney. I’m sure there will still be hundreds lining up to purchase runDisney shoes this year, but as for me, I’m gonna sit this one out. I’ll save my money for next year, with the hopes that 2016 will bring more exciting shoe designs.
What do you think? Love ’em or hate ’em?
