Travel can make weary feet.
Whether you walk the length of an enormous Disney Cruise or you spend all day walking and waiting in lines at Disneyland or Walt Disney World, tired feet can turn a magical vacation into misery.
That's why I am sharing my review of my favorite shoes to wear on a Disney Cruise or at a Disney park.
Best Shoes for Disney 2019
What I'm Looking For
I want really really comfy travel shoes.
That's the end game. That keeps my feet fresh so my "happy place" can be truly happy!
Why did I need comfortable shoes for a cruise?
From plenty of past experience, I know how much walking you do on a Disney cruise. The ship is large and all the things you want to do tend to be spread out.
Why do you need comfortable shoes for Disneyland or Walt Disney World?
If you're new to the Disney parks, you might not realize how much walking you do to get from one fun attraction to another. And then the waiting...oh my the waiting. They haven't yet invented "sit down" lines, so you're on your feet while you stand in line.
Why I Decided to Try Allbirds
I had been hearing from friends about Allbirds for quite awhile, but when I was planning for my last Disney Cruise, I finally decided to give them a try.
I fell in love.
I fell hard.
My Allbirds Review
Allbirds are the most comfortable shoe I have ever worn
Allbirds have a super squishy cushion that your feet will melt into. The best way to describe the feeling is that it's like walking on marshmallows (except not sticky).
When I first got my Allbirds, I loved the feel of them so much that I wanted to wear them all the time - even around the house. No joke!
You don't have to wear socks with Allbirds
This was a big selling point for me.
I hate when my no-show socks slip off the back of my heel and I am constantly pulling them back up. So annoying!
These kicks are so soft and flexible there's no need for socks.
Wool is naturally odor resistant and moisture wicking so it keeps any funky smells to a minimum.
No blisters here. I go "sockless" in my Allbirds all the time and have not once got a blister.
I like to wear my Allbirds on vacation (like on the pool deck of Disney Cruise or hanging at the beach at Castaway Cay) as an alternative to flip-flops. I can just quickly slip them on or off. Just another benefit of going "sockless."
Allbirds has a buy-try money back guarantee
Give them a try for 30 days. Wear them around town, to work, or if you’re like me give them the ultimate test and wear them to Disneyland.
If you’re not in love with your Allbirds, return or exchange them for free. No questions asked.
What do they do with the lightly-used returned shoes? They are donated to Soles4Souls® which helps those in need in communities all around the world.
Allbirds are stylish...in a minimalistic way
People say they look soft and comfy and they would be right. 😉
I love that there are no big logos on their shoes. Keepin' it clean and simple. I like that!
Just throw your Allbirds in the washing machine
Just make sure to let them dry for about 24 hours before wearing them.
Check out Allbirds' detailed care instructions.
I've washed mine a few times now and they actually wash really well. Washing them didn't change how they felt or how they fit. Although, I did notice a slight smell that wasn't there before but it went away after a couple of days.
Your Allbirds are made for travel
Their washability make them great for trips to anywhere...if they get dirty, just drop them in the wash.
And the sockless feature
Allbirds are eco-friendly
I've saved this to last, but this is a huge part of Allbirds company mission.
Allbirds are made of all natural materials such as merino wool, eucalyptus tree fiber, and sugarcane. No synthetic alternatives here!
Besides the all-natural materials, they are also made from other sustainable and recycled materials such as recycled plastic bottles (shoelaces), castor bean oil (insoles), and recycled cardboard (packaging).
Allbirds goal is to have a low carbon footprint with less waste and less pollution.
Their motto: “Because we think our planet deserves better.”
