Hi friends! Earlier in May this year, Allbirds launched the Tree Breezers, women’s flats for $95. Within days, they were completely sold out online! If you want a pair, hop on the waiting-list, stat! If you love going sock-less like me, and love wearing flats, I bet you’re going to love Allbird Tree Breezers. (Stay tuned for my in-depth honest review of Allbirds’ newest flats.)
It’s no surprise that these flats sold out so quickly. Rothy’s popular flats sell for $125 a pair. Here comes another comfy flat, this time from Allbirds, priced at $95. That’s a $30 difference. One shoe is made from recycled water bottles, and you and I know there is just too much plastic in the world. Reusing plastic bottles that will take eons to decompose is hugely appreciated. Buying sustainable shoes made from renewable plant fibers is also a noble cause. If only all shoemakers can change their models of production. The world will be a better place.
Finally, Allbirds have released a shoe with half sizes! The Allbirds Breezers, like most flats, will run snug, so if you’re normally a women size 8, get size 8.5 to be safe.
I’ve been saying for the longest that Allbirds is investing more and more in its Tree line; this is their fifth Tree shoe! Imagine the possibilities! I can see them taking a hint from Rothy’s and perhaps launch Girl’s Tree Breezers, and kids’ Tree Toppers. In the summertime, they’ll probably relaunch their Sweet-Foam flip-flops too. Allbirds is unstoppable! What will they launch next? Up until now, their shoes have been quite unisex. Aside from sizing, the men’s Allbirds resembled the women’s Allbirds. Allbirds is stepping away from tradition by launching the women’s Tree Breezers. What will they launch that’s uniquely for men? Loafers? Boots?
I just want to clarify that while Allbirds minimizes odor with their merino-wool padded insoles, after prolonged wearing, your Allbirds will be stinky. I noticed that after I washed my Allbirds for the first time, they get stinkier after prolonged wearing. Prior to washing, they reduced odor better. I don’t know why this is the case.
Before I go, I wanted to point out something interesting. Allbirds launched four limited-edition colors, one of which is a pink called Starfish. Allbirds Starfish pink is almost identical to Rothy’s Begonia pink. Rothy’s may be a tad more flattering. I love its V-shape top. Allbirds’ round top makes it a cute ballet flat.
Finally, I am a bit concerned with the Allbirds’ outer-sole and bottom. There’s a narrowing midway. Also, the heel cup seems to rise up a bit too high. One commenter of this article mentioned the heel cup is too high, adding to discomfort. I can’t confirm my suspicions until I get my hands on a pair of Allbirds’ Tree Breezers. In the meantime, I’ll continue my quest for a sock-less life, continue to wear my Rothy’s flats, and continue to deliver my brutally honest reviews of sustainable and comfy shoes! Happy trekking, friends!
(PS: Can you tell which pair is which? Allbirds or Rothy’s?)
