New Balance Vazee Rush Disney History

The New Balance Vazee is one of the brand's running shoe silhouette that has been receiving several material and technology updates or design modification. Although most Vazee silhouettes are made for running, there is a version designed for lifestyle use – the New Balance Rush Slip-On.

The New Balance Rush Slip-On applied the DNA of the running shoe Vazee on a slip-on construction for a comfortable and lightweight fit with an easy-to-wear function for the always-on-the-go consumers. 

Later on, the Rush Slip-On received a design update through the New Balance Vazee Rush Disney casual sneakers. This version basically retained the construction and features of the Rush Slip-On with minor differences only in the aesthetics. It was one of the four New Balance silhouettes included in the Disney's Beauty and the Beast collection for the brand that released in early in 2017.

One of the sneakers in the collection is designed specifically for the girls, the New Balance Youth 790v6 Disney. The remaining three are for the ladies with different functions – the New Balance Vazee Rush Disney (for lifestyle), the New Balance Fresh Foam Zante v3 Disney (for running), and the New Balance Vazee Transform Disney (for training).

New Balance Vazee Rush Disney Style

If you are looking for an easy to wear low-top casual sneaker that is equally comfortable and stylish, then the New Balance Vazee Rush Disney is one great option for you. Inspired by one of the Disney princesses, Beauty and the Beast’s Belle, the embroidered floral details on the leather strap adds a feminine touch that balances the sporty look of the shoe.
