New Balance

I sure do want a pair of the Disney New Balance! I hope they are a huge success so they start to make more of them! Anyone seen them in person?

I haven't seen them in person, but I love new balance shoes. I just don't know about the colors. Bright colors are not my thing.

I want some too! I usually wear New Balance as they seem to fit my feet better than nearly anything! I'd be happy to order some from their website IF they had them!! Maybe we can bombard them with requests and they will consider making them so we ALL can have them!?

I saw them while I was at the WDW Marathon weekend, they are really . I think they were going for around $130, but they sold out quickly. That's probaby why the hefty eBay price .

Im hoping that they have them available when I go to Disneyland to do the half marathon! They seem to be the style of shoes I wear, but no way will I put them on Ebay!
