Disclosure: I was provided this product from Airia for the product review; however, all opinions are my own.
I was recently contacted by Airia, the designers of the Airia One running shoes to do a product review for them. Their strong claim is that their special shoes will help you run faster (up to 7% speed improvement in tests). They are designed by a Swedish company, which has over 170 years in the design and making of shoes. The Airia One shoes retail for $190.00 US.
Starting at the 2013 Walt Disney World Marathon weekend, New Balance revealed new RunDisney themed shoes, to which you could only get at the race expos. Well, the popularity of these exploded. It became so popular, that at the 2014 Walt Disney Marathon weekend, you had to get on a wait list just to get in line at the potential to purchase the shoes. Well, for the last three RunDisney races, I have been unsuccessful.
Until now…. My running partner Becky did the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror 10 Miler last weekend, and was able to walk right up and get me my shoes. She actually called me on my birthday to tell me she was able to purchase them for me!
Since I have now done two Goofy Challenges, and Goofy is my favorite Disney character, of course I chose the “Goofy’s”! They are quite colorful don’t you think! There are special touches to the shoes that bring out Goofy’s character. The colors are Goofy’s signatures. It has Goofy’s hat on the toe box. Under the tongue it has his famous saying, “GWASH!”
Here are a few pictures….
Finally, on the heel of the shoe, is Runner Goofy, with the token 39 bib number to represent the 39.3 miles ran during the Goofy Challenge.
Here is the official video of all the various models available. Beyond Goofy, there are styles for Mickey, Minnie, & Cinderella.
