I just finished canvassing for Sacramento Mayoral candidate Darrell Steinberg. It meant walking door-to-door for over 6 hours with a few breaks for coffee and lunch. In the past I might have worn running shoes, but on my Australia adventure I got sore feet. So I started a search for better travel shoes.
I saw an ad for allbirds–a shoe made with New Zealand wool–and ordered a pair. I loved the packaging.
I started wearing them and they were instantly comfortable. There was no awkward break in period.
Today was the real test. I walked all day on pavement and while my feet are not singing they are not barking either. I am excited to take them to Italy in May.
They are just funky enough to be stylish.
