The App Store now stocks one-third of the Silicon Valley uniform: Allbirds launched its first standalone shopping app yesterday.
The company’s new nest will look familiar to sneakerheads. Allbirds’s app will host exclusive product drops and virtual try-on features, along with an option to select where carbon offsets from purchases are applied.
- Third party platforms can only do so much. “Shopify continues to be a very important partner, but as a vertical retailer, we understand the importance of providing unique, brand-aligned experiences for our customers,” an Allbirds rep told Retail Brew.
- As e-commerce grows in popularity, an Allbirds app could complement what shoppers used to find in its stores.
My prediction: App users get a first look at Allbirds’s ongoing project with Adidas…and more ambitious exclusives than new colorways.
