Allbirds Tree Skippers Review

I received these comfortable slip-on shoes a month ago as a gifted item from Allbirds. In full disclosure, I will receive a commission for any sales that are made from the affiliate links you click on in this post but all opinions are my own. The women’s Tree Skippers style appealed to me since I wanted a shoe that I could quickly slip on for going on walks with Ralphie. There is no need to undo the laces in order to put on them on and the flat laces do not come undone if they’re tied securely. I thought that the color would be more white but they have a light grey cast to them similar to chalk and the laces are light grey so the name of the color is accurate.

The cushy removable wool insole keeps my feet warm for temperatures above 4o degrees and I usually wear my pair without socks. Here is what the shoes look like with Bombas seamless no-show socks. My usual size 7 is a closer fit as seen in this clip and this clip as well but I was able to wear them without any issues or break in period. The Tree Skippers are very lightweight and they’re also available in men’s sizing.

I measured the removable insole and women’s size 7 is 9.5 inches long and 3.5 inches across at the widest part where the balls of your feet would rest. If you’re usually between sizes I would recommend going up to the next whole size  for the Tree Skippers (e.g. if you wear size 7.5 then try size 8).

I like that all of their shoes have a minimalist logo and branding and they’re very thoughtful about sustainability from the sourcing, production and shipment of their shoes. I’ve worn them a lot this past month and I wipe them off daily to keep them clean although they’re machine washable.

Here is one of my recent outfits from a warm fall day.

Update 4/21/21: I still haven’t put my sneakers in the washing machine yet. I recommend dampening a microfiber towel in warm soapy water to wipe them off between wears which will keep them looking clean.

My husband and I went into the city today and we stopped by the local store since I was curious about their other styles and sizing. My husband bought the above pair of running sneakers in his usual size 13 and he likes how light and comfortable they are off the bat. These sneakers come with round shoelaces which can come undone so he suggests double knotting them. My husband really likes their aesthetics and he wanted to get another pair but I told him to wear out the first pair first since we’re both unfamiliar with the brand and how long the shoes will last.

I tried on the Tree Skippers in size 8 for comparison and they were a 1/2″ longer. Since I plan to wear them without socks I am fine with my usual size 7. Update 5/19/21: On a related note, my husband ordered the Tree Toppers (the Men’s high top version of Tree Skippers) but they were really difficult to put on in his usual size 13. He has a bigger build so this style runs smaller and it’s narrow through the ankles unless he loosened the laces a lot but he still broke out in a sweat trying to get them on.

I also tried on the Wool Runner Mizzles which ran true to size for me with room for socks but I didn’t like how wide they made my feet look. Note that the store still had sizes in stock if you’re looking for a gift idea while the popular colors and sizes are out of stock online for their cold weather options.

Update April 2021: Click on my affiliate link for a free pair of socks with your purchase of Allbirds shoes or apparel. This offer will automatically be applied at checkout. Offer valid while supplies last. My husband ordered a pair of sneakers using my link and he likes the low Trino Pacer socks which he got in Summertime White (size XL fits him and he wears size 13).

Thanks for stopping by!

    I think price,quality and looks should match. They look pretty plain for the price. I think I saw similar at Walmart.

      Thanks for your feedback. I agree they are very basic for the price so I was grateful that they gifted me a pair to try out.
