I really don’t like high heels. I’ve worked in the professional world for nearly 8 years and I can probably count the number of times I’ve worn high heels on both hands. I really prefer a nice flat. However, my favorite pair of shoes is by no means a professional work shoe.
This post isn’t sponsored. (I mean, I wish! But, I started this blog about 4 days ago, so the offers for sponsored posts haven’t started rolling in just yet.) Allbirds sneakers are, hands down, my favorite shoes.
I got them for my birthday this year after seeing their ads pop up on Instagram. I’m a bit of a sneakerhead, and Huffington Post claims they are the “most comfortable shoes. Ever.” I’m a real sucker for targeted Instagram ads, so I knew I wanted these shoes. I’d be lying if I said I was instantaneously hooked when I got them. I wore them around the apartment and kind of thought, “these are nice and all, but I already have a lot of sneakers.” I wore them on a weekend trip to Charlottesville, Virginia (during an ice storm) and, I’m telling you, they kept my feet dry, warm, and, comfortable the entire time.
Now, I wear them every weekend and just about every day on my commute to work and then reason with myself that by 10am I need to put my work appropriate flats on.
A few things to know about Allbirds:
- They’re made of merino wool, which means they’re warm, but not hot, and they’re not itchy at all. (I feared they would be.)
- You really don’t need to wear socks with them.
- Reasonably priced at $95
- I suggest sizing up–I’m a true 6.5 in nearly all brands, but the 7 fits perfectly for me.
Goodbye for meow.
