Another great idea by All Birds
We are always looking for sustainable materials to use in our bespoke product solutions. All Birds have come up with a great idea. We have bought and tested these shoes, they look and feel great- while you walk around feeling virtuous and clever.
All Birds have created an entirely new category of shoes inspired by natural materials, and an ongoing mantra to create better things in a better way.
Their Story: A native of New Zealand, Tim Brown was always well versed in the magical qualities of merino wool. Inherently curious, he began asking himself why such a remarkable, sustainable resource was virtually absent in the footwear industry. And with that spirit of wonder, the All birds journey began.
After years of researching and tinkering, Tim teamed up with Joey Zwillinger, an engineer and renewables expert. Together, they crafted a revolutionary wool fabric made specifically for footwear. The outcome?
Wool Upper – Our very own textile made from superfine merino wool. Soft and itch-free on the inside, durable and dirt-resistant on the outside, and comfortable all over.
Recycled Laces- 100% of the material in our laces is post-consumer recycled polyester. One old plastic bottle becomes one pair of durable, sleek shoelaces, designed with inspiration from nautical rope.
Padded Insole – We line our insoles with our proprietary merino wool fabric for softness, moisture wicking, and odor reduction. For supreme comfort and cushioning, we use castor bean oil, which also cuts carbon output when compared to petroleum-based foam.
Lightweight Sole – Our proprietary low-density foam helps us make the lightest, most comfortable shoe possible, complete with expert cushioning and friction control. The unique S-curve tread array is designed to mimic the anatomical flexibility of your feet and give you natural weight distribution as you stroll.
Simplicity in design – No flashy logos. No senseless details. Just the world’s most comfortable shoes, made naturally and designed practically. It’s that simple.
Confidence in comfort – Trying is believing. Give our shoes a shot for 30 days, and if you’re not walking on cloud nine, we’ll take them back—no questions asked.
Made from nature – The footwear industry often overlooks Mother Nature’s materials in favour of cheaper, synthetic alternatives. We think it’s time to change that.
