Sustainable Burger-Themed Sneakers

Allbirds & Shake Shack Teamed Up to Create a New Pair of Kicks

— May 22, 2018 — Fashion
Sneakerheads with a love of fast food are sure to rejoice over the news that Allbirds has teamed up with Shake Shack to create a pair of limited-edition burger-themed sneakers. By combining Allbirds comfy kicks with Shake Shack's iconic green branding, the new shoes are the perfect pairing for burger-loving city dwellers on the go.

The Allbirds x Shake Shack collaboration is a exclusive partnership that involves the creation of a pair of burger-themed sneakers. The collaborative kicks take Allbirds' classic Tree Runner shoes, made with fabric sustainably sourced from eucalyptus trees, and combine them with Shake Shack's signature green and white color palette. There is also a tiny Shack burger featured on the tongue of the shoe. Best of all, the fast food joint is also debuting a special shake made with vanilla frozen custard, honeycomb, chocolate, and toffee bits, as a nod to Allbirds' New Zealand origins.

For those looking to get their hands on the new kicks, the exclusive shoes are only available on May 24 in New York City's Madison Square Park between the hours of 10AM and 8PM.
