Rumor had it that some New Balance Outlets had an inventory of runDisney shoes. I called my local store and sure enough, they had Dumbo’s from 2016 and Tea Cups and Haunted Mansion from 2017. I was actually wanting the Dumbo sneakers. I know it’s a men’s shoe, but I think it looks great as a women’s shoe. I thought the same thing about the Toy Story runDisney shoes. I didn’t see them as a men’s only shoe, I thought it was gender neutral. At least that’s my opinion. I saw plenty of people last week at Disneyland wearing all the 2017 runDisney shoes.
I got to the store and they didn’t have my size in the Dumbo. I did score a pair for Jim at $99. That’s what they were selling for at the Avengers Half Marathon Expo. The smallest size they had was a 9 men’s. While at the store I decided to search on eBay and see if by chance anyone was selling the Dumbos in my size and eureka! There was one seller that had them, so I quickly hit the buy now button. Now Jim and I have matching runDisney Dumbo sneakers.
I didn’t see the clip-on that matches the Dumbo sneakers at the store, so, for now, I’ll have to go without those until I can spot them at a decent price.
So, the morale of the story, if you’re wanting runDisney shoes, check with your local New Balance Outlet Store. I was told that some of the stores will tell you over the phone if they have runDisney shoes and others won’t so be aware of that. //s7.addthis.com/js/300/addthis_widget.js#pubid=ra-5980c223ff8218bd
