    Are trainers likely to get dirty at any of the parks. I got a brand new pair of white balenciagas, and unsure whether to take them or not as I don’t fancy ruining a £700 pair of trainers, they’re comfortable so would be ideal for comfort

    Hey Frank and welcome to planDisney. August cannot get here fast enough, am I right? Planning well in advance will make your holiday across the pond to the "Most Magical Place on Earth" practically perfect in every way.

    Guests dress in many different ways but if these trainers are very special and you want to keep them paper white then I would avoid wearing them in the theme parks. Could you wear them? Yes. Are they like walking on clouds? Yes. Are they the perfect trainer for theme parks? No doubt. However, because of the trainer cost, the number of Guests, getting in and out of attraction vehicles, theme park terrain, regular Florida afternoon rain, and many other issues, your Balenciagas may not be as white at the end of the day as they were when you put them on in the morning. I suggest flexing for a less expensive pair of trainers to wear while you pound the pavement. While the brand may not be as stylish as the Balenciagas you can still get a great pair of trainers to keep you comfortable all day and not risk damaging an expensive part of your wardrobe.

    Frank, I hope this helps you decide what to wear when you meet Mickey Mouse and the rest of the Fab 5. Please write me back directly with any follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
