Allbirds Tree Runners review

My honest Allbirds Tree Runners review! Find out why they’re my favorite style of Allbirds and whether they’re really as comfortable as people say.  

Full disclosure: this post contains affiliate links, which help run this site at no extra cost to you so I can keep providing free travel advice and tips. I also received one complimentary pair of Allbirds shoes and bought a second pair for myself, but all opinions are my own.

I first came across Allbirds shoes back in 2015 on a New York lifestyle blog and I was immediately intrigued.

I had just finished living in New Zealand for a year (where Allbirds founder Tim Brown is from), and the shoes were touted as slip ons you can wear without socks that are equal parts comfy, warm, and stylish. 

They sounded a little too good to be true with a price tag of only $95, but I kept my eye on the Allbirds brand for a few years. 

I watched as they quickly took the sneaker market by storm in the US and internationally.

In 2020, I finally decided to get two pairs of Allbirds sneakers to test them out for myself and to see if the hype was justified.

I went for their two most popular runner styles – the Allbirds Tree Runners and the Allbirds Wool Runners

Although I plan to do a detailed post comparing both shoes, in this Allbirds shoes review, you’ll get the full rundown of the Allbirds Tree Runners because they’re my favorite of the two. 

So, let’s dive into my full Allbirds review and why I think the Tree Runners are some of the most comfortable shoes for travel and an active lifestyle.
