Since launching in 2016, Allbirds’ eco-friendly shoes have quickly became a favorite of everyone from Silicon Valley techies to celebrities and everyday shoppers. While best known for its lifestyle-focused Wool runners, the brand also has plenty of amazing running shoes to help you hit the pavement in comfort and style. And even better news is that you can score its best-selling running silhouette, the Tree Dasher, for 20% off right now.
Currently discounted for both men and women in a range of bright to neutral colorways, the model has amassed over 2,000 reviews and an average 4.5-star rating on Allbirds.com.
According to the brand, the Dashers have been tested over thousands of miles by more than 50 amateur and professional athletes, built “for everything from your morning 5K to your dash to the grocery store.” The streamlined look features a seamless one-piece upper for preventing hot spots and is made with sustainable eucalyptus tree fiber, which is not only thermoregulating to keep feet cool in the summer and warmer in the winter but also flexes with your every step for great freedom of movement. Plus, there’s contoured cushioning underfoot (which some reviewers even praise for preventing foot pain associated with plantar fasciitis).
“Spent the last five months training for a marathon in these,” wrote one customer. “I bought a new pair about one month from the race and my feet felt great. Just need to keep an eye out for the sole wearing in or train in a couple pairs. These babies got me to Boston 2022!”
Like the rest of the brand’s offerings, this shoe is also machine washable and packed with plenty of earth-friendly materials. In addition to its tree fiber upper, the style has a sugarcane midsole, FSC-certified natural rubber outsole, a foam insole composed of castor oil, bio-based nylon eyelets and laces made from recycled plastic water bottles. (To note, the shoe is actually carbon neutral, thanks to the use of these components and the brand’s funding of high impact carbon projects — which you can learn more about on its website).
The sale likely means Allbirds is making way to launch new styles, meaning the shoe probably won’t be restocked once it sells out. So, grab your favorite colorway, below, while you still can.
