If you're a sneaker fan, then you are probably familiar with Allbirds, the online-only shoe brand specializing in ultra comfortable, eco-friendly sneakers made from New Zealand wool. Since launching in 2016, the brand has amassed a cult-following, but the shoes have only been available to shop on their website and at their two concept stores in San Francisco and New York city — until now. Beginning March 30, Allbirds is teaming up with Nordstrom to bring customers five exclusive colors, as well as the full product line of men's and women's styles. But you will only have until May 20 to shop the collaboration, so you'll definitely want to act quickly before they sell out.
Allbirds is the latest company to be featured in Nordstrom's Pop-In pop-up shop retail concept, curated by the company's Vice President of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim. "I love the simplicity of Allbirds’s message around comfort and sustainability," Kim said in a press release about working with the brand. "It is really exciting to partner with a digitally-native brand. To be able to take what’s only been on your screen and create an actual 360-degree physical shop allows us to give customers an immersive experience where they can discover the world of Allbirds."
Nordstrom shoppers will be able to shop three different Allbirds styles: the Runner, the Lounger, and the Skipper. The Runner is their signature sneaker silhouette, which you've likely seen on your favorite Instagram influencers and celebrities.
The Lounger is their effortless slip-on style and the Skipper is their latest addition, which is sort of like a mix of the Runner and the Lounger. It's a boat shoe-inspired slip-on with a shorter tongue and laces, but the coolest part? It's made from a textile spun from eucalyptus fiber. (Select Runner colors will also be available in this tree fabric.)
Nordstrom will be offering five exclusive Allbirds colors: the Skipper in Nordstrom Thistle (a white tree fabric with pink shoelace holes) and the Runner in Nordstrom Rainier (a charcoal wool with a black sole), Nordstrom Cascade (a blue wool with a beige sole), Nordstrom Hawthorn (a maroon/charcoal wool with a beige sole), and Nordstrom Crater (a black tree fabric with a black sole and green shoelace holes). These colors were custom-made for the Nordstrom collaboration, so once the pop-up is over, you won't be able to buy them again.
