Allbirds Review 2020: Are These Wool Shoes All That?

I love birds. In fact, I had to pull myself away from watching my favorite backyard visitors to work on this Allbirds review.  You can understand why I was slightly giddy when Allbirds made their debut last year as “The World’s Most Comfortable Shoes.” But guess what? The only nod to birds is the bird-shaped “s” in the minimalist logo–that’s it. The company is all about sheep, castor beans, recycled cardboard and a relentless passion for developing the most comfortable footwear from the planet’s natural resources. I can get behind that.

Allbirds Superbloom Collection for spring 2020

Previously I discussed the history of the company (which you can now read here), but I’d like to get right down to the actual Allbirds review with a few updates after owning my wool runners for a full year now–design, confidence in comfort, made from nature (if you’re a guy reading this, check out  Mike’s review of Allbirds mens wool runners).

Allbirds wool runners

My second pair of wool runners in Savannah Night (navy on navy).

Simplicity in design:

While there’s a time and place for day-glo, logo-emblazoned sneakers (gym), sometimes you crave an uncomplicated shoe. Allbirds are uniform in color from heel to toe, side to side and come in the loveliest muted pastels and neutrals. As a high school teacher, I can pair my Allbirds wool runners with just about any outfit for a casual yet put-together look.

Confidence in comfort:

This is where the rubber meets the road for me (and most Barking Dog readers). Comfort is king, but that can mean different things for different feet, so I was careful not to read too many reviews before trying them on my picky feet (we recently reviewed the new Allbirds flats for women if you’re interested in a more feminine silhouette than the wool runners).

Allbirds Mizzles Water-Repellent Wool Runners

Allbirds Mizzles: Water-repellent, slip-proof wool runners for men and women.

I ordered the wool runner in natural white. My first thought when I received my order: Allbirds cares about first impressions! The recycled cardboard box is as sleek and minimalist as the shoes (it’ll go under my bed where I keep the cool shoeboxes in case my son is assigned a diorama).

Next I ran my hand across the merino wool uppers of my new sneakers: bliss. I slip my foot in, lace them up (I love a good, thick lace) and waited for the right words to describe the feeling and fit. Here goes: form-fitting plushness (not unlike those cozy animal slippers we wore as children, but all natural plushness, not synthetic). This is the softest merino wool fabric to ever touch my feet. They’ve been a treat to wear this cool spring in Chicago as the wool fabric is temperature-regulating and naturally moisture-wicking. And if they get dirty (and they will), just remove the insoles and laces, pop into the washing machine on the wool cycle and air dry! Mine are currently drying outside as I type.

My finicky toes couldn’t be happier when wearing my Allbirds. Due to the plushness of the fabric, there’s no irritation to bunions or hammertoes.  I immediately thought of my readers with peripheral neuropathy who can’t tolerate itchiness, rough seams or pinchy toe boxes–these shoes are a godsend to you.

Allbirds review

The insole is lined with the same soft, moisture-wicking merino fabric as the upper and is surprisingly made with plant oil-based foam from sustainably-grown castor beans! Who would have thought? Makes me appreciate all the R&D put forth by the company. For longer walks, I’d need to replace it with either my Treadlabs or other more supportive insole. For bumming around town, it’s just fine. If you have severe plantar fasciitis or pronation issues, the standard issue insole most likely won’t offer the support you need (but it is removable, keep in mind).

Allbirds at the beach

Allbirds wool runners – perfect for a cool day at the beach–wear and wash!

The outsole is substantially thick and shock-absorbing, yet lightweight and flexible. I’m hoping it wears well, as there isn’t much of a tread (update six months later: if you want to wear your Allbirds every day, don’t expect the tread to wear well–hoping the company is working on ways to improve durability of outsole).

The fit is spot-on: wider at the toes, tapering to a snug fit at mid-foot and heel–like a gentle hug for my feet. The size 10 fits me perfectly (I’m on the smaller size of 10). Since Allbirds are only available in whole sizes, refer to their sizing page for the best fit.

I recently asked our Facebook fans for their take on Allbirds; feel free to jump in the conversation, ask questions and leave a comment…

Allbirds Review : Allbirds Mens Review

Mike wears Allbirds Mens Wool Runners in natural grey

Our friend Mike owns a pair of mens Allbirds in natural grey. He likes the lightweight feel of the soft wool upper and resilient sole. The fit and feel “is a cross between a slipper and running shoe, making them comfortable to wear all day.” Mike travels frequently and brings his Allbirds with him since their versatile style goes with most outfits.

Mike wears a size 13 in Allbirds and feels they run true to size. If your foot is on the wide side, they may fit a little snug at first, but the soft wool upper stretches a bit and molds to the foot. Visit the mens Allbirds page to see all current styles and colors.

Allbirds Review

You can’t go wrong with white Allbirds because they’re washable!

Tim Brown, co-founder of Allbirds, understands the importance of comfortable footwear. A former soccer star from New Zealand, he joined his love of country and its natural resources (29 million sheep) to his passion for developing a simple, unbranded shoe (unlike the neon synthetic sponsored gear he wore as a professional athlete). Receiving a grant from the New Zealand wool industry, Brown jumped headlong into finding the softest, most durable material that could be worn without socks. After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2014, Brown met renewable materials expert, Joey Zwillinger (thanks to their wives who were college roommates). The two discovered an Italian mill outside of Milan which refined the initial material into the super fine, durable, and certified-sustainable Merino wool fabric used in Allbirds shoes today.

Even though Allbirds’ best-selling shoe is called the “wool runner,” this is not a shoe for diehard marathoners, rather the every-day mobile working person who finds themselves on their feet running from work to lunch meetings to after-hour events. The stripped-down, logo-less wool sneaker is what sets it apart and makes it unique–there’s beauty in simplicity. For more information on the development and mission of the Allbirds brand, listen to this Launch Pad podcast by Penn Wharton Entrepreneurship.

  1. Jax says:

    Can anyone who has the tree mesh version comment on what that material is like? Stiff or flexible? I noticed the website said to size up for the wool runners but down for the tree runners. Not sure if that means the tree ones are roomier. The plantar fasciatis comment is interesting and makes me wonder about the heel to toe drop on the runner and where on the foot they place the weight I have small feet but quite wide in the forefoot and big instep. Fussy feet that are perfect barefoot but sneakers cause all manner of pains. Not sure if i should take the plunge. Have tried so many brands with promises of all soerts. but always dissapointed

    • S Mickey says:

      The tree mesh is soft and flexible. I have worn them for about a month now and they are holding up well (compared to the wool). I am an 8.5 and my toe went through the wool 9 but not the tree mesh. They are comfortable all day with my mild plantar fasciitis. I usually wear vionic, sturdier and more support.

    • Bobie says:

      The great thing about Allbirds is you can return them after trying them out. They pay shipping. I have bad bunions and arthritis and found them very comfortable. The soles are a soft product and do not wear well in my experience. They can become slippery in wet conditions. However it is one of the only shoes I can wear on my problematic feet. I also supinate badly and found the outside wear on the sole made them unwearable for me about about 6 months. I did not have an orthotic at the time so that might make a difference. The wool is warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

      • Skip Slade says:

        Appreciate this candid review. As a 73 year old supinator, I’ve spent a fortune on shoes, Lems is a superb example, that last only a very few months due to outside heel wear.

        To date, only hard-soled and typically uncomfortable work shoes last longer than three or four months.

    • Joan says:

      The material of the tree runner is soft and flexible. But unfortunately not very durable. My toe has gone through after about 4 months. Very disappointing in an expensive shoe. I was wondering if the wool would be more durable, but it sounds like not. Too bad because they are very comfortable.

    • BL says:

      I want to add that I’ve had my tree runners for three months, and although (or maybe because) I love wearing them, there are holes wearing through in the toes. I’m not especially hard on them (I work from home), but I’m disappointed that a $100 pair of shoes is already so worn in three months.

  2. Roz Potenza says:

    I have never been happier with a pair of shoes out of the box. I bought the wool loafer slide ons and it was like slipping into a pat of butter. I’ve not taken them off all night. I noticed some sluffing of wool off the insoles but that doesn’t surprise me. The support was surprisingly viable and springy with decent arch enforcement. The toe was a bit boxy and my feet are narrow so there was a bit of room to spare. I will most likely wear these with no socks but in spite of the extra room, my heel did not slip and I felt no rubbing. This loafer is very slipper-like and reminded me of Mahabis, but more comfy.

    I will be purchasing a lace up pair next and it feels to me like it too will be money well spent. I will also be surprising my husband with a pair of loafers so we will be an Allbird all the time household.

    • Lisa says:

      Ditto!!! A friend of mine got a pair of lace ups for Christmas and let me try them on. Heaven! I got a pair of the sliders and usually leave them on even when I get home. They are more comfortable than slippers.

      Now, I am getting pairs of lace ups for myself and husband. He has severe foot problems and I have had surgery on my little toe. No rubbing, pain or calluses. Big fan so far!!! I even bought a pair as a gift for my friend who shared the experience with me to thank her!!

  3. Alicia Quackenbush says:

    If you love Krygies you will love Allbirds

  4. andre zirkler says:

    I found the size to be off by quite a bit. I wear 8.5 to 9, ordered 9 and they’re waaaay too tight (short). BTW I ordered two diff pair – same issue with both pair.

  5. Yang says:

    I regret to have bought a pair earlier this year. They didn’t survive 6 month. Pro is basically the first 1-2 month – you never wear a shoe like this before. Good looking. You tell friends. But con comes right after, starting around 3 month mark.

    First you notice it is way too slippery for many daily activity, like a small hike, carry grocery and walk uphill, or maybe run a bit to catch a bus. It is absolutely NOT a pair of running shores.

    Then, around 5 month mark, you find holes in the inside of your shoes. Not just me, my wife, and her friend. There are four of us bought the shoe together. And 3 has the problem.

    Then, at 6 month mark, I find my foot hurts – the sole of the shoe has worn out. Creases on the midsole. I am a 160lb male who averages 10K steps a day. And I have a pair of Altra for running.

    I think the most critical issue is the sole problem. I am not even reaching out to them to ask for a replacement – I don’t want to hurt my feet again.

  6. Maricia says:

    Looking to replace my favorite pair of Rykas. Intrested mainly in support/comfort. Any thoughts as to how Allbirds wool runners would fare during a weeklong vacation to a certain Orlando-based theme park?

  7. Bobbie says:

    The great thing about Allbirds is you can return them after trying them out. They pay shipping. I have bad bunions and arthritis and found them very comfortable. The soles are a soft product and do not wear well in my experience. The tread just wears down very quickly. I contacted the company and they indicated they knew that was an issue. At that time they were making no changes in the construction. They can become slippery in wet conditions. However it is one of the only shoes I can wear on my problematic feet. I also supinate badly and found the outside wear on the sole made them unwearable for me about about 6 months. I wore them daily. I did not have an orthotic at the time so that might make a difference. The wool is warm in the winter and cool in the summer. My boys have them and also like them very much but felt like the upper lost shape after awhile. They also had sole wear but don’t wear them every day.

  8. Claire J Ratliff says:

    I love Allbirds … really, I do. I own 2 pair of the loungers, and 3 pair of the runners. I especially like the Tree Runners with their textured fabric, because, unlike the smooth fabric Allbirds (both loungers and runners), the textured fabric is not as quick to wear through at the big toe. This is a common problem and I wish the company would do a little reinforcement in this area. Also, the vertical seam at the heel is prone to premature wear/fraying. The beauty of Allbirds is that you want to wear them ALL THE TIME, but the downside is how quickly they can look tired because of that back seam and the big toe wear-through.

  9. Joan says:

    On the recommendation of a friend, I purchased two pairs of Allbirds because I was going on a trip and needed comfortable walking shoes. I was excited to order them because they are so nice looking, however, I was extremely disappointed when I received them. I have a narrow heel but generally okay with lace up shoes. Allbirds have an odd lump in the heel that rubbed the skin off my heel. I thought I would get used to it and, although I wore one pair for a couple weeks before the trip, I still had to wear moleskin on my heel everyday to prevent blisters. For me, they cannot be worn without moleskin.

    I should have returned them immediately but I was determined to make them work because I liked the look so much. After finding a far more comfortable substitute shoe, I tried to return the second pair that was never worn. For supposedly such a great company, beware, there is a 30 day return policy. Such a short return policy is unheard of in this day and age.

    Since ordering I have spoken with others who have ordered and returned Allbirds because they are so uncomfortable.

    • Kirsten Borrink says:

      Thanks for your honest review, Joan. I’m interested in which shoe you found that was more comfortable for you?

  10. Bonnie Schnurbusch says:

    I love my Allbirds. They are extremely comfortable and I love the simplicity of the shoe’s design. They look fantastic with so many things in my wardrobe. I would highly recommend them to family and friends.

  11. lauren says:

    I love my Allbirds but had to order a men’s pair because the largest womens didn’t fit. Also I am a pronator and think the support is lacking. I’m going to try my orthotics but that being sad what I like most is the ability to wear them without socks. My orthotic without socks isn’t comfortable.

  12. Mikie says:

    I have 3 pairs now and cannot fault them. They are so comfortable compared to other supposedly “comfortable” and “breathable” sneakers, that I find that putting other sneakers on, now feels like I’m wearing cardboard boxes on my feet! Seriously!

    I fully recommend going for it and ditching your socks! Yes you heard right, wear barefoot, sockless, no socks to really enjoy the comfort to the full. They are easily put in the washing machine and cleaned when they get grubby every couple of weeks and come up as good as new.

    Only trouble is now I feel spoilt, like no other shoes are good enough and I now dread the occasions where I have to wear hard formal shoes and stuffy socks 🙁

    • Kirsten Borrink says:

      How have they worn for you? I wear mine once a week and have had them for seven months and the wool, insole and outsole are still in good condition (after three washes). I agree, wearing them sockless is the only way to benefit from that super soft wool which is softer than any sock I have!

      • Mikie says:

        They hold up pretty well, considering they go in the washing machine every now and then. I’ve had one pair for 2 years, pretty soon after launch and the other two pairs are 6 months and approx 1 month old. The oldest pair are a little baggy now, but still intact and wearable, although I no longer wear them much. The 6m pair still looking great after being my majority shoe for a few months and obviously the new pair are well, new. I now wear a pair almost every day, unless I have formal work meetings (1-2 days a week) and alternate with a pair of Giesswein Merino runners, which are good too and can also be worn sockless, although a little more expensive than Allbirds and more like a “sneaker-sneaker” in styling (if you know what I mean), I prefer the Allbirds TBH.

  13. Elizabeth Cooper says:

    I am thinking of ordering a pair for my mom who is 77 years young and has really bad arthritis. Trying to decide on whether I should order the slip- ons instead of the sneaker and wool instead or the tree type? Thoughts?

    • Kirsten Borrink says:

      WOOL! It’s so soft and feels awesome on bad feet affected by arthritis (take it from me, I have RA). If she can tie easily, the wool runners fit better, I think and don’t slip at heels.

  14. Judy says:

    Just purchased tree runners and need to return them. l didn’t receive any order sheet with them and cannot contact the company through email or phone. Very disappointed with their websites!

  15. Joe says:

    The problem with allbirds is they stink. I mean, they really, really stink. And if you wear them for more than two hours or so, the sweat buildup is do bad your feet burn. I tried to wear them to the office and was miserable by mid afternoon. They simply DO NOT BREATHE.

  16. Susan says:

    I am afraid to order because I keep hearing the sizes are off…

  17. Kemal Cinaroglu says:

    At first very comfortable, but limited life span for a very expensive shoe! Immediate stretching is a big issue. When I contacted customer service, I soon realized that it was beyond poor service and waste of my time! After sharing with me that the stretching was a known issue to Allbirds, they refused exchange, argued, and offered $ 20.00 discount towards purchase of two new shoes! Very poor customer service and appreciation. Would never buy or recommend!
    Allbirds seems to have a short memory!

  18. lauren says:

    I love my Allbirds, but they don’t have enough support for me (I’m a pronater). I added another insole underneath the wool insole provided. I had to order men’s ( I’m a 10 1/2-11 women’s in sneakers). The other disappointment is that my big toe went through the ‘lining’ in the upper top of the shoe. I’m hoping that it holds up. I’m afraid to take them on vacation where I’ll be walking a lot because of the lack of support.

  19. MOLLY WATKINS says:

    I’ve had a pair of the runners for about 18 months. Very light, very comfortable, but the big toe area started to wear thin after about three months. I called the company, and the person I spoke to acknowledged the issue. She suggested getting several pairs and rotating them! Ha! Ha! I didn’t wear them at all during the winter months here in New England, but now that spring has arrived, I’ve started to go for walks again. I have severe hip arthritis and am putting off replacement for a few reasons. These are the only shoes I’ve tried that give enough cushion and absorb the shock that moves up my legs. I get the cons, but I’m going to order another pair so that I can continue to go on 1-3 mile walks in comfort. Personally, I find them a bit funny looking, but who cares? They are not my “fashion” shoe. They are the shoes that allow me to stay fit until surgery. Worth the money if you need comfort.

  20. Jax says:

    OK so I got the skippers in the tree material. I can’t wear most shoes so the fact that I think these might work out says a lot in their favor even though there are a lot of cons as well as pros. If you have a high volume foot a.k.a. high instep then there really is very little shoe there and it’s hard to keep on your foot. First I had to remove the insole because it took up too much volume . I replaced it with a cheap Spenco flat one Plus a small piece of alpaca insole i cut up
    For the heel just so I would have a quarter of an inch rise there. Also I have to wear them barefoot! It’s the weirdest thing but when I wear them with socks even thick socks the heels feel like they’re going to slip off. But when I wear them barefoot it’s like a suction forms and they cling to my foot. it’s kind of cool actually. It feels like they are alive and I have some kind of symbiotic relationship between my foot and the tree. The right one still felt a little bit too much like it would slip so what I did was I threaded a piece of waxed dental floss in a needle and I ran it through the tiny holes giving myself three extra pairs of eyelets basically to add to the (only) two ipairs of eylets that are already there. So now have sort of an extra shoelace made out of floss. Then swapped out the dull color shoe laces that came wit brite white ones which both masks the white floss and actually looks better and matches the white color eyelets anyway. Oh and I also Found the tongue was too well attached and was not behaving like a proper tongue but more like a one piece material so I was able to clip a couple of it stitches to free up the tongue. So with all the shoe surgery I feel like I can wear them and have been walking around some. I have been careful so far to mostly try soft surfaces because without their insole it’s not very questions and concrete for long periods might end up hurting the ball of my foot. They are so light weight, which i love, that it may not matter that there is not much shoe material there. if this holds up I am definitely happy and would be happy to buy a new pair every six months if needed. I would get a darker color rather than the stone color I got. I saw someone wearing gray Skippers they look very lively. Also appreciate the wide toebox. things i always need and rarely find in the same shie are: very light weight, very flexible sole, minimum heel to tie drop, and very fkexible sole. Thats way i like these skippers- has all 4! (Coms are fall off feet , not enuf eyelets, material stretches out filurther adding to slippage)

    Now you might ask why I didn’t just get the runners and I did indeed try both the runners and the hightops as well as the skippers, all in the breezy tree material. . I kept the skippers and sent back the other two. The problem with the tree runners was a many fold. If you hold the tree runners up from the tongue you can see it tilting backwards. That is, its weighted towards the heel. I could not figure out what felt funny when I was wearing it. I thought it was because the piece in the back of the sole sticks out but it’s just because the thick sole is heavy in back and gave it a funny weighting for it despite its overall light weight. I also found the drop forfrom heel to toe was just too sterp l but without the insert the shoe was too big. That was the only model where they said if you’re between sizes to size down rather than up. I also by the way have a very wide fore foot. If only they had a model that combine the flat heel to toe drop and sizing of the skippers but with the full lace up design of the runners i Would be so happy. SThe tree runners also made my feet look much bigger than they really are although that’s not why I sent them back. As for the high tops they were flat like the skippers so I thought that would be great. They also had plenty of eyelets and shoe and no chance of those slipping off. BUT Problem with those is that the sole was much stiffer than Either of the other two models I tried. Definitely want a very flexible sole and had trouble walking in tge stiff soked high tops. . So I sent back those two and kept the skippers which at least had the flexible sole and the minimal heel to toe drop it was a good fit lengthwise without the insole. I normally wear a 5 1/2 and I got a size 6. So that is my story. Come winter I think I will try the wool
    runners and hope they are better than the tree runners. If anyone has a pair handy I would be curious to know if you hold it from the tongue between your index finger and thumb what happens ? Does it tilts back? Tilt forward or stay neutral?

  21. Trevor says:

    I have four pairs of Allbirds, two wool runners, one eucalyptus tree runner, and one eucalyptus tree topper. I love everything about them: style, colors, comfort, fit, but there is just one thing missing, and it’s an important thing – durability. Three of my four pair have not worn well at the end of the toe box. I have carefully checked the size and a 12 is perfect for me. I also keep my toenails clipped short, so neither of those two variables has an effect on durability. On both wool pairs, the end of the toe box has worn thin, in the case of the black ones, worn through. I assumed wool sneakers would not do well in rain, so I was careful not to wear them on rainy days; however, one night leaving a restaurant in Sydney, Australia, I was caught in a downpour and had to make a run for my hotel. That soggy experience was enough to weaken the fabric and eventually wear a hole in one of the shoes. That pair was purchased about a year ago, the other three more recently, so these are not significantly old shoes. I have studiously kept the second wool pair out of the rain. Nonetheless, the material at the end of the toe box has worn thin. Walking with a friend one day wearing my tree runners, he suddenly asked, “Is that a hole in your shoe?” Much to my surprise, it was. a small, but noticeable, hole in the toe box. While I love these shoes and would like to purchase more, I don’t think I can risk the possibility of more holes showing up in relatively new shoes. Also, especially with the shoes made from wool, they tend to lose their shape quickly, and that’s a big part of what makes them attractive. You’ve got a great concept and a good product, but I feel like I’m wearing the beta test version.

  22. Bette says:

    I’m a normal 41 / US 10 – 10.5 and can’t find a pair of Allbirds that don’t slip at the heel — I’ve tried every model in several sizes, and have now given up.

  23. Dan says:

    I bought a pair of runners–a size up after reading reviews. Unfortunately they were so tight I couldn’t wear them so they could “mold” to my feet as they say. I had to return them. If I went to an even larger size the length would be ludicrous. I really like the way they look but can’t get beyond the super tight discomfort. I’ve have a couple of Sketchers for 7-8 months, in a wide width, and they are my all day on my feet shoes. They were comfortable immediately when I put them on–super soft on my sensitive heels.
    I really wish Allbirds would offer a “WIDE” width as I would probably buy several pair.

  24. ANGELA LAMARCA says:

    I enjoy my Allbirds but now I want to buy a slip on model which one is it?

  25. Bonnie says:

    I have ordered Tree Breezers, Tree Runners, and Tree Skippers. I returned all but the Tree Breezers. The Runners and Skippers have a “low” (top to bottom) toe box, and since I have a bunion that forces my big toe toward the middle, it hit the top of the toe box. Not comfortable. I do not experience this with the Tree Breezers. The fact that they allow you to wear them — even outside — for a month before returning is definitely a plus. I wish they would change the low profile, giving more room top to bottom in the toe box.

    I will say they sell their insoles separately, and they are THE BOMB. Any shoe that has room in it to accommodate these insoles, I put them in.
