Allbirds Merino Wool Running Shoes

Allbirds_Womens_Wool_Runner_Charcoal_Left_Front_Angle_0099NZ sportsman Tim Brown, and San Francisco based engineer Joey Zwillinger have teamed up to launch Allbirds footwear made from NZ merino wool. The shoes make the most of the natural properties of merino wool, minimising odour, wicking moisture, cushioning the foot, and helping to regulate temperature. Thanks to clever material use, the shoes can be worn without socks, and simply cleaned in the washing machine.
