The Best Wool Sneakers

Wool is an optimal material for shoemaking.

Wool shoes are cozy and lightweight — about 50% lighter than a regular sneaker. Wool is also:

  • Odor resistant & naturally breathable
  • Water-resistant due to the waxy coating of fiber
  • Moisture-wicking and stain-resistant
  • Warm in winter, cool in summer

These companies make wool shoes:

  • Allbirds: Shoes made with superfine New Zealand wool and eucalyptus tree fiber, a certified B-Corporation
  • Merinos: Sneaker made with Australia merino wool
  • Geisween: Shoes made with merino wool
  • Pendleton: Sneakers made with wool
  • BaaBuck: Wool sneakers made in Portugal
