Forget about Mickey's Big Yellow Shoes - Check Out These Duffy Chucks

November 12, 2015, 11:17 AM · Tokyo Disney Resort is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Duffy the Disney Bear — the Disney Parks character that American theme park fans love to mock, but that Japanese theme park fans just love.

The resort has been offering an expanded line of Duffy merchandise during the year-long celebration, which also honors Duffy's girlfriend, Shellie May, and feline friend Gelatoni. But the new item that caught my eye was this:

Duffy Chucks

That's right: Duffy Chucks.


It's a pair of Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars, with Duffy fur on the canvas upper. The "Journey with Duffy" celebration logo appears on the tongue and the inside is lined with navy with white stripes. The shoes run from women's size 6 through 10-1/2 and men's sizes 4-1/2 through 9, and sell for 15,800 yen — about $129 at current exchange rates. (Thanks to TDR Explorer for the English translation of the specs.)

You probably wouldn't want to wear these outside (and especially not in the rain!), but they'd be perfect for a trip on the Duffy bus, wouldn't they?

November 12, 2015 at 12:26 PM · Oh, darn, I wear a size 10. They wouldn't fit. I am so sad...(sorry, just can't get the sarcasm to register loud enough in print).
November 12, 2015 at 1:13 PM · I'm with everyone here who believes Duffy has been skinned.
November 12, 2015 at 2:45 PM · What are those?
November 12, 2015 at 4:02 PM · I am wearing a pair right now.
November 12, 2015 at 4:21 PM · Thank you disneyversal! Somebody had to!
November 12, 2015 at 7:27 PM · They are also selling underwear with Duffy fur on the inside, for your comfort.
November 12, 2015 at 7:55 PM · How many Duffy's have to die before PETA gets involved?
November 12, 2015 at 8:02 PM · I kinda like Duffy and his little story. I think it's cute and charming. But I must admit, I'm not crazy enough about him to wear him on my feet. But, hey, I'm willing to do some crazy stuff for my fandoms that regular people would consider abnormal, so I've no room to to judge.
