Are Birdies Shoes Worth It?

During the pandemic, many people found themselves looking for more comfortable footwear options as they spent more time at home. According to CNBC, this sudden desire for comfier shoes helped Birdies become a popular footwear brand. Birdies initially earned a lot of attention back in 2018 becauseĀ actress-turned-royal Meghan Markle wore them. The Birdies flats are meant to feel like slippers appealed to people looking for cute-yet-comfy footwear in 2020. The shoe brand became so popular that they even sold out at one point, as they were unable to meet such high demand.

The brand emphasizes how its products provide comfort for your feet and appeals to a female target market. The website says: "We blend gorgeous fabrics and comfort-first design to bring you flats, slides, sneakers, and sandals" and states that they're "on a mission to make a positive impact on the lives of women everywhere."

The website shows that Birdies' sneakers, flats, and slides come in a plethora of colors and patterns. Most of their sneakers are currently priced at $130 to $140, while their flats have an average price of $130. Their slides seem to be priced anywhere from $50 on sale to full prices of $165. Some of the best-selling items include The Starling flats in black, latte, taupe, and cheetah, and The Swan slides in jeweled ocean, jeweled raspberry, mini cheetah, gold, emerald crystal bracelet, snow crystal bracelet, and jeweled gold sparkle. So are they really worth it?

The reviews are glowing

Between Meghan Markle wearing them and their Instagram account currently having 214,000 followers, many of us are curious if Birdies shoes are worth the price, so we checked out some reviews to see what people who actually tried them think.

One very detailed review from The Atlas Heart claims that Birdies flats are worth the price because they are so comfortable, feature a memory foam cushion detail, and quilted satin insert. The satisfied reviewer also explained that the Cheetah Calf Hair Starling flats are stylish enough to match most outfits in her closet, making them appropriate to wear regularly.

Furthermore, a fiber scientist and shoe expert shared her insight on Birdies shoes in a Good Housekeeping review. She also believes that Birdies shoes are worth the price and the hype, as she wears them daily because they're so comfortable. However, she pointed out that while they're supportive enough to wear outside for brief periods, they're not ideal for walking around for a long time. Last but not least, a review by Reviewed shared that Birdies shoes may or may not be worth it depending on what you're looking for exactly. While this review believes that the shoes are super comfortable and fashionable, the products don't offer much support when walking around for a while. But aside from that, they like the shoes.

Judging by all these positive reviews, we think that Birdies shoes are worth the money if you want some comfortable, stylish new footwear.
