The New Zealand company Allbirds started with a simple question, why was it that no one had made a production shoe completely out of wool? The material is sturdy, it minimizes odor, regulates temperature, and wicks moisture – and since no one else seemed to be jumping on it, founder Tim Brown decided to take the opportunity to design a pair of shoes out of it.
Made with Superfine merino wool, these things are comfortable, sturdy, and stylish as hell. The shoes can be worn with or without socks, are machine washable, and are ZQ certified to be sustainably farmed. You can pick these up in either mens or womens sizes, and in a range of colors starting at $95.
