We've got a lot in common with Allbirds - we started out with two Kiwi guys with a great idea to revolutionise an industry, sought out the best quality ingredients and materials, then took the world by storm! Allbirds has created the ultimate sneaker made out of merino wool for shoes that don't smell, wick moisture and are super comfy to boot!
Former All White footballer Tim Brown co-founded Allbirds with biotech engineer Joey Zwillinger this March. Driven by an ambition to revolutionise the humble 'everyday' sneaker, the pair spent two years making their Wool Runner design using superfine merino wool upper with a rubber and foam polymer sole.
The company has raised $2.7 million in investment, moving the company to San Francisco to continue expansion plans. At the moment, Allbirds Wool Runners are only available online in the USA and New Zealand and come in a range of on-trend colours.
We all know that merino has been around a while now... so what makes Wool Runners so special?
Tim and Joey worked with one of the world's great Italian textile mills in Milan to create an innovative new merino fabric specially designed for footwear. It's this textile design that makes Allbirds super comfortable and packed with these features:
If that wasn't enough, Allbirds offers a 30 day trial period so you can be sure they're right for you!
