Allbirds is one of the direct-to-consumer market’s most visible success stories.
Founded by New Zealand-native Tim Brown and San Francisco-based engineer and renewables expert Joey Zwillinger, the startup makes its shoes out of sustainable materials such as merino wool, eucalyptus pulp, and the world’s first sugarcane EVA foam. Its original Wool Runners ($110) put the company on the map, but it now has more than a dozen styles — from water-resistant sneakers to ballet flats.
Allbirds shoes range from $40-$160 and come in a wide variety of colors. You’ll also find many performance-oriented sneakers like the Tree Flyer, Tree Dasher 2, Trail Runner SWT. Looking beyond footwear, Allbirds also makes clothing using an assortment of sustainable materials including repurposed crab shells. Yes, you read that right!
