I remember my first pair of Allbirds sneakers. They were the softest shoes I’d ever worn and felt like literal pillows for my feet. It’s no wonder why styles and sizes sell out so quickly—once you walk a mile (or just a few steps) in these shoes, your feet (and shoe standards) will never be the same.
If you’re not familiar with Allbirds, now is the time to get acquainted. The brand was founded back in 2014 by Tim Brown and Joey Zwillinger. Between Brown’s knowledge of all things merino wool and Zwillinger’s engineering and sustainability background, the duo was able to introduce a new category of shoes designed with natural fabrics and a simplistic style. Each pair’s construction consists of superfine merino wool (sourced from sheep the team can attest are well taken care of), recycled bottles make up the laces, and its packaging is made from 90 percent recycled cardboard.
