We’ve written about runDisney before. We certainly can applaud that Disney has a dedicated division that proudly supports a healthy lifestyle through exercise. Moreover, we find that combining the world of Disney with anything “undesirable” is a means of motivating and encouraging one to keep their hands, arms, feet, and legs OUTSIDE the vehicle and into a more healthier you.
That motivation comes in the form of holding these fitness events and races inside various Disney Parks where runners from around the world can run past their favorite lands, attractions, and characters as they make their way to the finish line. Just recently, runDisney held their latest event at the Disneyland Resort called the Tinkerbell Half Marathon Weekend. We’ll have a Wrap-up of that event later on, but we at least wanted to mention the highlight of the weekend which happened to be something that is right under (and around) our toes.
New Balance, the fitness shoe company, recently announced their partnership with runDisney in becoming their official shoe provider! In doing so, New Balance created these special, limited edition shoes that highlight the famous mouse couple at the head of the Disney Universe.
Take a look at the video above to get a behind the scenes look at the design process and inspiration that New Balance shoe designers had when dreaming up these magical shoes for runDisney. Perhaps they’ll be magical enough to get you running at another runDisney event soon, like the Disneyland Half Marathon (which is about to sell out)!

If you want a pair of these special M&M shoes, we found a couple of them for sale on eBay…if you have the “Disney Dollars.”
