Bankers have their suits. Doctors have their scrubs. And tech bros? Tech bros have their Allbirds. We’re positive you’ve seen their sleek, almost formless shape on the feet of Patagonia-vest touting techies; the immensely popular New Zealand-based shoe retailer has skyrocketed from an eco-forward start-up to a multi-billion-dollar label, helped along in large part by Silicon Valley’s obsession with merino and Lyocell-based styles. And now, you’ve got a chance to try them out for yourself — or grab a gift for that tech-sector someone in your life — during the Allbirds Black Friday Sale.

Why Are Allbirds So Popular?
Let’s backtrack for a second: why exactly is the brand so popular? It could have something to do with the brand’s quest for sustainability. Utilizing a variety of eco-conscious materials like merino wool and eucalyptus tree fiber, many of Allbirds’ styles are carbon-neutral or negative. Coupled with a breathable, woven upper and streamlined, office-ready looks, it makes sense that they’d appeal to such a large crowd.
Intrigued? Even if you don’t have Meta money, we’re happy to report that Allbirds are currently more affordable than even thanks to their massive aforementioned Black Friday Sale, with up to 50% off dozens of styles like the updated Tree Dasher 2 or the surprisingly solid Trail Runner. If you’re curious about the hubbub, there’s never been a better time to test the sustainable styles out.
Sizing is going quick — already spotty on some of the top offerings — so we’ve compiled the greatest hits from the Allbirds Black Friday Sale, to help you choose the right shoe for you, or whoever you might be shopping for. From slip-ons to sneakers, find the best deals below.
