Ever since I moved to San Francisco, I’ve spent way more time getting around on foot than by car. The combination of stressful road conditions and the nightmare of finding (and then paying for) parking is enough to deter me from getting behind the wheel. As a result I’ve been more drawn to comfortable shoes that won’t hurt my feet after a few blocks of walking.
I heard about Allbirds about a year ago and purchased a pair for myself last November. I’ve never really been a sneaker person, simply because I haven’t found any that pair well with non-workout clothes, but I think these wool runners are pretty chic. The clean, non-branded look and the fact that they are so comfortable it feels like your feet are being hugged by clouds are big wins for me. I purchased these shoes with the intention of wearing them on the weekends when I didn’t feel like dressing up, but they have quickly become one of my most worn items and I’ll find any excuse I can to slip them on my feet. Normally I would go straight for the heels with an outfit like this, but I love pulling out my Allbirds for a unexpected (and comfortable) twist.
