Allbirds Are The Most Amazing Pair of Shoes You’ve Never Heard Of

It’s rare for a shoe to embody simple design, ultimate comfort and undeniable functionality. So rare in fact, that when we discovered a pair that does, we couldn’t keep them to ourselves.

Introducing Allbirds, a sneaker made from wool

That’s right, merino wool is all the rage. It’s been popping up in unsuspecting items like tees and underwear. And now it’s taken another surprising form: a sneaker.

The body of Allbirds sneakers is made from a New Zealand superfine merino wool (arguably the best around). This makes the shoe super soft to touch, completely flexible and breathable. Best of all, these shoes boast the most amazing qualities of wool, like minimizing odor and regulating temperature (yes, you’ll be comfortable wearing these in any season).

Rocking a pair of Allbirds is like wearing slippers to do all of your sneaker-things in. In fact, the wool body, padded insole and lightweight sole combo created by former pro soccer player and Allbirds founder Tim Brown is being touted as the most comfortable shoe in the world. A promise that the company is standing behind—if you don’t love the shoes after 30 days, Allbirds will take them back, no questions asked.

No more socks!

Oh, the other perk about the kicks: no socks needed. They’re soft and comfy enough to get away without those no-show socks that are always slipping off. And the shoes are machine washable, so if you need to freshen them up - it’s just a delicate cycle away.

The shoes have debuted with a single, sleek style dubbed the “Wool Runner” and are retailing for $95 on the Allbirds site.
