When Allbirds drops a new sneaker, we at Scouted rejoice. The brand knows what it takes to create a sneaker that will make you replace all your others. Now, with the addition of the Wool Piper, I feel like I could wear a pair of Allbirds shoes for just about anything. I got a chance to try out a pair and boy, do I already love them.
These Merino wool sneakers are comfortable, breathable, and lightweight. Unlike the traditional Allbirds, these have a fully lace-up design that feels more like a vintage low-top sneaker than an activewear shoe. I’ve already expectantly paired them with jeans but also, unexpectedly, with a silk midi skirt or a dress. They can easily be dressed up or down.
While I usually gravitate towards white sneakers, I opted for the Dappled Grey, which looks like a sweater I wish I owned, but it also comes in True Black, Natural Black, Natural White, and Garden Blue. The oversized accents (Grommet holes! Laces!), contoured footbed with a midsole made from sugarcane, and an odor-reducing insole make these the sneakers I’ll be wearing throughout the fall. I don’t need another pair of sneakers, you say to yourself. Maybe start enforcing that rule after you’ve tried these.
