ALLBIRDS TREE RUN­NERS

Air Canada enRoute - - THE ULTIMATE TRAVEL GEAR 2018 -

When this San Fran­cisco-based shoe com­pany took flight in 2016 with an en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly merino-wool run­ner, techies in Sil­i­con Val­ley and mil­len­ni­als ev­ery­where went berserk. This year, Allbirds launched a new tex­tile that’s en­gi­neered from eu­ca­lyp­tus­tree pulp and knit into a mesh fab­ric for a soft, four-way stretch. The Tree shoes are light­weight, ma­chine wash­able and a mag­net for com­pli­ments – lit­tle won­der eco-war­rior Leonardo DiCaprio is now an in­vestor.
