Birdies are stylish flats that are secretly slippers.
What are Birdies?
Are birdies slippers or shoes?
They're both! Birdies are shoes with rubber soles and are meant to be worn everywhere—inside, outside, anywhere you want. Our 7 layers of cushioning mean they feel like slippers on the inside. That's why we call them stylish flats that are secretly slippers!
THE PAIR I WANT IS SOLD-OUT, WHAT CAN I DO?
We're sorry about that! Our limited-edition colors are typically created in small batches, and once they're sold-out, we typically don't bring them back.
However, there is a small chance that a few more pairs will trickle into inventory. To be notified of your desired style and size coming back in stock, be sure to join the waitlist when you select your size online. If you're looking for a classic style and color that's currently sold-out, joining the waitlist will ensure that you're the first to know once they are available again.
You can also reach out to our store by calling (415) 263-9668 to see if they have your desired Birdies in stock.
We release new colors a few times a year, so hopefully, you can find a pair of Birdies that fit your style!
Are birdies insoles removable?
No, Birdies insoles are not currently removable or interchangeable.
Are birdies waterproof?
No, Birdies are not waterproof. We recommend keeping them away from rain and moisture.
How to clean your birdies?
We recommend sprinkling the inside with baking soda when they get a bit dirty. It will absorb and freshen them up a bit, and you can dump out any excess baking soda that does not absorb. As for the outside, we recommend using a soft bristled brush to wipe away any dirt or spots, but do keep your Birdies away from water.
For the hand painted VOTE Collection shoes please gently wipe shoes with a damp cloth, being careful to avoid the painted sections so as not to ruin the artwork.
Can I wear birdies outside?
Yes! Birdies are made with a rubber sole and can be worn outside.
What kind of outsoles do birdies have?
Birdies have rubber soles.
Are birdies vegan?
Birdies offers multiple vegan options. All of our velvet and satin shoes are 100% vegan. When browsing on our website, look for the detailed product info for each style, including whether the shoes are vegan.
What are the care instructions for the hand painted Vote Collection?
Each piece of artwork is hand painted and could be effected by normal wear and tear. We advise them not to be worn in rainy weather or in intense heat. For longevity, spray with a leather protective before wearing.
