runDisney New Balance Shoes

Sharing is caring!

Some of the hottest runDisney merchandise were the runDisney New Balance running shoes. While the traditional themed shoes are no longer being made, there are still New Balance Disney themed options out there! (affiliate links included)

Once upon a time at a race expo far, far away… 

The runDisney New Balance shoes were the must-have items on runner’s lists. The lines were long, the prices high, and the shoes ADORABLE. 

All that changed in 2018 when the relationship between runDisney and New Balance shifted. Shifted isn’t accurate: the relationship ended and the contract was not renewed. 



This isn’t altogether terrible news for the Disney fan. You can still get Disney New Balance shoes- and you don’t have to attend a race expo to get them.

So here’s the deal: you can now find walking shoes and cross trainers made by New Balance for Disney. 

They are online on Amazon (links below) as well as in the ShopDisney app, and even in running stores!

Which is kinda cool that they made the once inaccessible accessory totally available for all.

I’m not a Disney snob: I say share the runDisney New Balance shoe love with all who come to this happy place!

These are the women’s FuelCore NERGIZE Disney cross trainers. And I think they are pretty dang adorable.

I love the little bow on the front laces and the white dots on the heels. 

I’m quite sure Minnie would agree these are just too cute!

And there’s another version for women as well- the Fresh Foam Cruz Disney shoe looks like they would be perfect for a long day in the parks!

Not a ton of color on them, but hey, basic black is always in.

While I don’t think I’d run in either pair for a runDisney race, I love spotting them on true Disney fans feet in the parks. 

While the runDisney New Balance shoes have crossed the finish line, I think we can all agree that they were a fun novelty while they lasted.
