The American startup Allbirds (translated from English: All Birds), which produces shoes from merino wool, has released a collection of shoes for children called Smallbirds (translated from English: Birds).
Shoes are designed for children aged 2 to 4 years, boots made of merino wool - an exact copy of the adult model Wool Runner. The retail price for a pair of children's shoes is $ 55, which is a little expensive for shoes for toddlers, according to techcrunch.com.
Shoes are presented in three colors - in gray, red and blue.
As noted on the Allbirds brand website, its founder Tim Brown grew up in New Zealand, and could not help but admire the quality of merino wool and not be surprised that this material is not used in the manufacture of shoes. It took Tim Brown several years of research, in collaboration with engineer and renewable energy expert Joey Zwillinger and one of the Italian textile mills, to create an innovative woolen fabric that is suitable for sewing shoes and releasing the first batch of merino wool shoes. The brand's assortment today includes woolen sneakers and slip-ons for men and women at the price of $ 95 and sneakers for children at the price of $ 55.
