On the hunt for sustainable, sturdy, and stylish footwear? We’d suggest taking a look at the New Zealand based shoe brand All Birds. The two owners, Tim and Joey, made it their mission to create eco-friendly footwear inspired by natural materials. We created a list to highlight some of our favorite All Birds women’s shoes to make your shopping choices easier.
Let’s take a look.
1. Women’s Tree Dasher 2
The upper fabric of the Women’s Tree Dasher is made out of FSC Certified eucalyptus trees. This fabric provides breathability and lightweight flexibility. The making of the tree fabric also uses 95% less water than the average cotton shoe. This model is ideal for lighter workouts, walking, and short-distance runs.
2.Women’s Wool Runner Mizzles
A common misconception about wool shoes is that they can’t get wet. That is not the case for All Birds woolen shoes. This merino wool fabric has a water-repellent shield to account for any type of weather or terrain. Perhaps one of the best features of this model though is the castor bean oil-based insole. The castor bean oil insole is incredibly comfortable and also emits substantially less carbon than traditional petroleum-based products.

5.Women’s Tree Loungers
7.Women’s Wool Runner Fluffs
8.Women’s Wool Piper Woven
9.Women’s Wool Breezers
Looking for something a little dressier? Perhaps check out this merino wool ballet flat. These are perfect for work or simply for wearing out and about. All Birds states that these shoes have a carbon footprint of 4.45 kg CO2e. And since All Birds is a certified Climate Neutral business, they detail their plan to balance emissions in the product description. This information is listed with every shoe on their website making them a wonderful sustainable brand to support.
10.Women’s Tree Toppers
This minimalist high-top design sports the breathable eucalyptus fabric and grippy sole. They’re last on this list because due to their popularity, they aren’t always available. This model often sells out and for good reason. Not only is the high-top design stylish, but the fabric is machine washable and flexible enough to comfortably embrace all movements.
We barely scratched the surface of all that All Birds has to offer in this article. Not only do they provide high-quality women’s shoes among other products, but they also prioritize taking care of the planet and giving back. They’re certainly a brand to admire in our books.
