Frequently Asked Questions
How Do You Wash Allbirds?
If your AllBirds pair starts to feel less than fresh, you will be happy to know that most footwear from the brand, like the Wool Runners, are machine washable. The company recommends washing them on the wool or gentle cycle. Remove the insoles and laces, use a mild detergent, avoid bleach, and put them in a delicates bag to protect them while they get washed. To dry them, the brand recommends air drying - avoid using dryers at all costs
Is Allbirds Really that Comfortable?
AllBirds pride themselves on the comfort of their shoes. Not only do their respectfully sourced materials lend an unmatched level of comfort to their shoes, but the brand also strives to accommodate all types of feet, including the wide and flat. A savant mix of merino wool, tree fibers, natural yarn, and more unexpected materials like sugarcane all come together to create unmatched comfort which gives Allbirds their signature "walking on clouds" feel.
Should You Wear Socks With Allbirds?
When you buy a pair of AllBirds, whether wool runners, tree runners, or any other style from the brand really, you don’t necessarily need to wear socks if you don't want to. Indeed, even worn without socks, AllBirds are still some of the most comfortable shoes the market has to offer. However, if shoes worn without socks are not really your thing, the company has released a collection of Trino™ socks to match their shoes' comfort level, but you can, of course, wear Allbirds with your regular socks as well.
Are Allbirds Eco-Friendly?
To put it simply, yes - the New Zealand-based brand offers only eco-friendly products. Abiding by the motto “Mother Nature is our muse,” the company strives to create renewable and naturally-derived alternatives to traditional fabrics.
