Every time we visit Shana and fam in Philadelphia, I somehow forget just how much walking is involved when you live in the city. At home, we don’t really walk in the winter (unless it’s indoors for exercise or outside in snow shoes). It’s cold (like below 0) and snowy (we’re talking feet of snow) and the most walking we do is to and from the car. So when we pack for Philly, I’m bringing shoes that can handle miles of walking without hurting. And when I saw Allbirds sneakers advertised as “the world’s most comfortable shoe,” I was intrigued.
On our latest trip to Philly, I busted out our brand-new sneakers and we set off for a day of walking around the city. I was actually nervous they would hurt after awhile (like most new sneakers that have to be broken in), especially since we were wearing them without socks. We walked allllll around the city, all day long. Our feet? Didn’t hurt. Not only that, but they were warm! I’m always cold (my feet are usually in smartwool socks) and the wool kept my feet warm. They kind of were like wearing slippers around – they were that comfortable. We are that family that has absolutely no qualms about matching . . . give me alllll the matchers! (Ok, so maybe I’m a bit more enthusiastic than Zack or G, but I’ve been able to get away with it so far).

Allbirds sneakers are lightweight and breathable, keep your feet warm in the winter and cool in the summer, are machine-washable and comfortable (the wool isn’t itchy like you might think), but the best part? You can try them for 30 days and if you don’t like them you can send them back (for free) for a full refund. Let us know what you think!
