After falling in love with my first pair of navy Allbirds Runners last year, I went on to buy them again in green and red. Needless to say, we were thrilled to see them finally come out with a new form factor.
The foam and rubber sole is supportive enough take you anywhere a slip-on would- probably further since the merino is great in both cold and hot conditions, the insoles are replaceable, and the whole shoe is machine washable.
While the Runners went with almost any outfit if you were willing to be the guy in the disruptive shoes, the Loungers, in my mind, require a bit more commitment and finesse. Then again, I’ve gotten more compliments on my Runners than any other article of clothing I’ve ever worn, so we shall see.
As with the Runners, the Loungers are ridiculously comfortable, flexible, lightweight, breathable, and adaptable, and primed for your next brunch, dog walk, or ultralight packing list.
