Haunted Mansion running shoes


Ape Lad sez, "This year is the 40th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion. These lovely purple shoes, featuring the spooky wallpaper design, are being sold as part of the upcoming festivities." Man there's some good stuff in that merch preview and also a lot of junk. I'd love these shoes, and the dessert plates, the candelabra and the chess set (oh, the chess set!). But does the world really need yet another set of crummy pins?

  1. As a doctor, I have seen far too many patients use shoes like this for running and come down with haunted ankle.

  2. if those are anything like chucks you don’t even want to walk in them. I wore chucks for the better part of my life, and when i took to walking about 7 miles a day i realized how wrong i’d been.

    now when i throw on chucks just for a night out, it feels wrong. i just never knew what right felt like beforehand so i assumed they were fine.

  3. I am going to this event (and am absolutely thrilled about it). Some of the merch is fantastic, and I’ll definitely be getting the shoes, but I’m more excited about the Tony Baxter seminar and the overall wedding theme of the event.

  4. To be clear, in Canada I have found they refer to all gum or rubber soled casual shoes with laces “running shoes” or “runners,” much like many areas in the U.S. say “tennis shoes” instead of sneakers. Cory, I believe, is from Toronto.

    You must be new(-ish). Doctorow’s relative morality towards Disney is tainted by his childhood nostalgia for one of the worst offenders of intellectual property law. It’s best to either accept or ignore, for future reference.

    Did you wear insoles? I wear Chucks every day but not without proper insoles that conform more to my foot. It makes all the difference in the world for me. Otherwise yeah, without them Chuks are better off just for a night out.

    As much as I like the design on the Haunted Mansion Chuck lookalikes, $75 is a bit much. But damn, they’re tempting.

  7. Now, I will undo the laces for you and a Ghost will follow you home! Kindly watch your step, please. Watch your step.

  8. I think having an additional grey-scale version would have attracted more guys. I love the Haunted Mansion but I don’t want to walk around in purple shoes.
