In my experience, everyone who tries on a pair of Allbirds sneakers is instantly converted to a superfan. Last Christmas, for instance, my mom gifted each family member a pair of the brand's eco-friendly shoes, and now none of us can imagine life without them — and we're not alone. Celebrities like Courteney Cox, Hilary Duff, Blake Lively, and Lucy Hale have been spotted in the ultra-comfy lace-ups, and Mila Kunis has even been rocking her Allbirds Tree Dasher 2s from as early as 2018.

So, of course, when I learned about Allbirds' just-launched running shoes, I (along with everyone in my family group chat) was immediately stoked. Described by the company as "the most technically advanced shoe Allbirds has ever released," the Allbirds Tree Flyer was designed for long, fast, and pain-free running. Each sneaker includes patented SwiftFoam, a highly responsive and shock-absorbent cushioned midsole that promises to add "more bounce" to each step. And while this extra padding protects the ankles, knees, and hips, these kicks are anything but bulky — in fact, it's 30 percent lighter than Allbirds' classic SweetFoam cushioning, available in the brand's Wool Loungers and Tree Pipers. (BTW: Carrie Underwood called these Sneakers "the most comfortable shoes" for her sensitive knees.)

These running shoes also feature the signature knit outer that's won the brand so many admirers; made sustainably from eucalyptus fiber, the material contours to your foot for added stability and balance. This light, porous fabric allows for ample airflow, intended to keep the wearer cool, even during hot summer workouts. What's more, grooved rubber treads provide slip-free sturdiness as you move. This design is made from plant-based and recycled materials, making it as good for the planet as it is for your feet. (Psst: Check out these 4 eco-friendly legging brands.)
