Allbirds Takes Flight with Limited Edition, First-ever Patterned Collection

Allbirds already makes what most consider to be the world’s most comfortable shoes. Where does the trailblazing brand go from here? Today, Allbirds breaks the mold again by releasing its first-ever patterned shoes. This limited edition collection of Houndstooth, ZigZag, and Polkadot Tree Toppers won’t be in stores until July 16, but we scored an exclusive early link, so you can get yours right now by clicking here.

These. Are. Awesome.

If you’re thinking these high tops won’t be wearable until fall, think again. Allbirds Pattern Collection Tree Toppers are made using a proprietary mesh knit textile from sustainably harvested eucalyptus tree pulp. So they’re breathable and silky-smooth, even in the summer heat. Naturally-derived and renewable, it’s much friendlier to the environment than traditional shoe material.

Even the laces are environmentally sound. They’re made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester; basically, one old plastic bottle becomes one pair of durable, sleek shoelaces. The design weave takes its cue from nautical rope, and the bio-based material that forms the eyelets is tougher and more resilient than plastic.

Wanna go sockless? No problem. The plush insoles are lined with merino wool fabric for natural softness. And wool has legendary moisture-wicking and odor reduction. The cushioned footbed is derived from castor bean oil, which also cuts carbon output when compared to petroleum-based foam.

Born from Brazilian sugarcane, SweetFoam is the world’s first carbon negative green EVA. The outsole’s contours provide bouncy comfort that’s light on your feet as well as the planet.

Best of all, Allbirds shoes are completely machine washable—and the price point on these is no higher than the rest of the Tree Topper line ($ 115).

Where Can You Get Them?

The shoes are currently available via Instagram, and you can head there to learn more. For now, the three limited-edition Allbirds Patterned Collection is available only in the high-top Tree Topper style, and just in a black/grey colorway. But if they’re a hit, who knows what the future holds? Take a look at each of the three Patterned Tree Toppers below, and pick yours up today before they’re all gone.

ZigZag

The funky ZigZag pattern is complemented by a black sole, which makes these the perfect city trekker.

Slip On These New Allbirds Summer Colorways Before They’re All Gone

News flash! Allbirds just dropped four new summer colors. If you haven’t yet sunk your feet into the soft, breathable glory that is all-wool Allbirds, here’s a rare opportunity to do so while still being a trendsetter. If you’re already an Allbirds advocate, then this is your chance to stand out from the flock.

The Shoreline Collection features four new coastal-inspired colorways that are ideal for summertime. And they’re in styles that are awesome for warm weather fun. They cost the same as standard Allbirds—but these Limited Edition colorways will fly off the shelves. So if you’re on the fence, you’d better hop on over it, and quick.

 

Tide Pool

This fresh aqua colorway is reminiscent of cool blue pool water, and makes us want to signal for the cabana boy to bring us another mimosa. It’s available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner and high-topped Tree Topper, and also in the casual Tree Skipper ($ 95, above). It’s a laced summer slip-on, perfect for kicking off and relaxing in the chaise.

 

Sunkissed

Allbirds

Hot August nights and slow summer sunsets call for a smoldering colorway, and the Sunkissed delivers. It’s available in four Allbirds styles, including Wool Runners, Tree Skippers, Tree Toppers, and the breathable Tree Runners ($ 95, above). You can get it with a matching sole, but we rather like the contrast of the light grey here.

 

Dolphin

Allbirds

Just because the sun is bright and hot doesn’t mean your shoes have to be. Stay cool, calm, and collected in this subdued, classy colorway. It’s only available in Allbirds’ original Wool Runner style ($ 95, above), and only with the color-matched sole. But don’t let the fabric scare you; 100 percent natural Merino stays cool when it’s hot, and warm when it’s cool. And it’s totally suited for year-round wear—even to the office.

 

Whitecap

Allbirds

This icy blue can chill the vibe at any summer gathering. It’s also available with the summer active Tree Runner sneaker ($ 95, shown at top), but we’ll take it paired with Allbirds also-chill, lace-less summer Tree Loungers slip-ons ($ 95, above). Perfect for when you have a drink in your hand and your toes in the sand, just like Diamond Dave.

Remember, these fresh Allbirds colorways won’t last—they rarely do, but because these are so perfectly summer-suited, do yourself a favor and jump on this. And while you’re at it, don’t forget to add a free all-wool Allbirds beer koozie to your shopping cart. Once you add a pair of shoes, the $ 10 price tag drops right off, automatically.

Allbirds Just Dropped A Limited-Edition Beer Koozie—Here’s How You Can Get One Free

By now you know about Allbirds, the San Francisco-based company that makes Merino wool shoes. Everyone raves about them: people love the style, the comfort, the carbon-neutral production. And we love Allbirds, too. That’s why we’re really excited to tell you about Allbirds’ latest promotion. Buy a pair of Allbirds today, and you can get a Merino wool Allbirds koozie, free!

Normally $ 10, Allbirds is throwing in a free koozie with every shoe purchase for a limited time. Turns out, the same merino wool that works so well at keeping your feet cool and dry (or warm and dry) is also great for keeping your beverage cold and your hand warm. Who knew?

So, while you’ve probably heard of Allbirds, have you tried the shoes yet? Then it’s time to find out what all the buzz is about. Give Allbirds a try today, and get your free koozie. If after 30 days you’re not confident that this is the world’s most comfortable shoe, Allbirds will take it back and refund your money, no questions asked. But please, keep the koozie.

The company is based on a simple plan: Better materials, better design, and responsible, sustainable production. That’s it. The sheep wool—20 percent finer than human hair—is responsibly harvested (and the sheep are treated very well, thanks). The manufacturing utilizes modern techniques to reduce energy and materials waste. The lightweight, comfortable soles are made of low-density foam that’s made with castor bean oil, for supreme cushioning and a lower carbon output compared to petroleum-based foams. The laces and eyelets are made using 100 percent recycled plastic, and the packaging is 90 percent post-consumer recycled cardboard.

And the shoes are as simple and clean as the production—free of gaudy logos and unnecessary embellishments that take away from what the product was designed for: to be the most comfortable shoe ever. And there’s the kicker: they’re machine washable.

There are only three Allbirds styles for men, and just two materials to choose from: Merino wool, or Allbirds’ proprietary knit that’s made using responsibly-farmed eucalyptus pulp. The shoes are broken up into two families: Wool, and Tree. The Wool is renowned for its temperature regulating and moisture-wicking softness that keeps your feet warm in cold weather, and cool in hot weather. The Tree, meanwhile, is designed for lightness and breathability. Best of all, the eucalyptus has that same cooling effect on your feet that it does in your nose when you breathe it in. Both are soft and not scratchy at all. And, of course, responsibly produced.

You can go for the Runners, active shoes designed with a lightweight, low-density foam outsole made for all-day comfort. Or you can opt for Loungers, comfy slip-ons with a super-lightweight sugar-cane SweetFoam sole. Those come in either the Wool or Tree material. Or you can choose the Tree Toppers, Allbirds’ version of high tops. That’s it. Pick your color, get your koozie, and start walking.

No flashy logos. No senseless details. Just the world’s most comfortable shoes, made naturally and designed practically. It’s that simple.

To get your free koozie, first, add it to your cart, then shop around for your perfect pair of Allbirds. Once your shoes are in the cart, the $ 10 price tag drops off the koozie. It’s all yours, free.

Wool Runners

The shoe that started it all. The Wool Runners are great for any kind of activity. And if you need to run a bit, they’ll definitely get you there.

The S-curve tread mimics the anatomical flexibility of your feet for natural weight distribution. Superfine merino wool is soft and itch-free on the inside, durable and water-resistant on the outside. The insoles get the same Merino treatment, for softness, moisture wicking, and odor reduction. And the laces are made of 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester.

Wool Runners come in four standard black/white/grey color combinations, but Allbirds has a great selection of rotating Limited Edition colorways, to suit every style. Moonstone is shown.

Like most Allbirds, they come standard in charcoal, but with your choice of colormatched or white soles. A rotating cast of Limited Edition colorways offers several other options, too—we love this Limestone for its versatility.
