c/o Allbirds Tree Skippers in chalk
I received these comfortable slip-on shoes a month ago as a gifted item from Allbirds. In full disclosure, I will receive a small 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 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 shoelaces in order to put on them on and the flat shoelaces 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 shoelaces are light grey so the name of the color is on point.
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 sizes.
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 actually machine washable.

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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by!
