Allbirds Wool Runner Review


I would preface this post with the fact that I am usually not a sneakers person. I have very flat feet and so a lot of sneakers are not comfortable for me at all. I tend to wear Keds or Converse sneakers when I do wear sneakers because they are pretty flat on the inside of the shoe. I saw Allbirds on a couple of environmental/social conscious forums but I forgot about them until my new friend CP reminded me.


As I am in SF for a couple of weeks, I went to the concept store and fell in love. First of all, they have a gorgeous little concept store in a hipster alley in SF. It's light, airy and it displays the shoes in a fun way. You see all the models and colors available on these neat bookshelves. Someone at the store will bring you different sizes - in my case, I wear a women's 11 so I tried on men size 9 and 10 shoes. The men's size 10 was more comfortable for me. I tried on the gray and the black but decided ultimately on the black because they look a little more formal - I can wear them to work or for play.


I ordered them online as they did not have them in-store and they came in a neat box that uses less packaging. I am in love with them!  You do not need to wear socks with them as the merino wool allows your feet to breathe. They feel like wearing socks and stepping on clouds. I walked up and down Nob Hill, all around the Financial District and went to a networking event in them without any pain or discomfort. I also wore them for a hike in Eastern CA that was relatively easy and they performed awesome! I highly recommend these sneakers to women on the go and travelers.

  1. I am a big fan of merino wool and for good reasons. Merino wool is highly breathable, comfortable, and very efficient in regulating temperature. I will definitely buy the Allbirds woll runner shoes. See more on merino wool here: http://hikingmastery.com/basics/what-is-merino-wool.html

  2. With the outrageous virus to manage the cashmere goats produce an extremely characteristic fine, warm and soft under downy. That under downy is then sheered and transformed into cashmere clothing. Another explanation is that the cashmere fiber has a one of a kind insulation framework that knows when it is hot out and when it turns crisp. Please check out our website for more information.
