Running is synonymous with human movement – intuitive, freeing, essential.
Allbirds is showing a new approach to combining performance and sustainability without compromises in their new running shoe model – The Tree Flyer. The focus of Allbirds mission is to offer an alternative to petroleum-based materials majorly used in the textile industry. The brand´ s choices of materials such as SweetFoam® made from sugar cane, eucalyptus fibers, and merino wool revolutionize the concept of a conscious approach to performance textile and responsibility.
The Tree Flyer running shoe is designed to support and spring the runner´ s weight minimizing the damage on joints and connective tissue. Allbirds deploys maximum sustainable innovation to rethink the creation process, production, performance, recycling and damage control ocuring from textile production.
The pioneering SwiftFoam ™ material is delivering the highest level of 70% recoil while also creating a distinctive look. The inside soles, usually 100% synthetic, are replaced by a renewable resource: castor seed fibers, lowering the overall CO2-footprint by 20%. The flexible outer surface made of eucalyptus fibers stabilizes the runner´ s foot aiding in balance.
More sustainability with every movement made possible through love to running and the planet.
