Hilary Duff's workout look is all about staying comfortable — and eco-friendly.
Last week, the 33-year-old actress was spotted hitting a Los Angeles gym for an intense sweat session. Duff, who welcomed her third child in March, looked toned and strong as she was photographed post-workout wearing a pair of navy Training Leggings ($45 CAD/$30 USD) and a matching Mesh Sports Bra ($60 CAD$40 USD) by Gym Shark, a knotted white tank top and an orange face mask.
The "Younger" actress opted paired the look with a pair of white Wool Runners from Allbirds ($135 CAD/ $95 USD).

These itch-free sneakers are made from a soft, sustainably sourced and moisture wicking merino wool that not only look great, but hold up to your day-to-day activities —including the gym.
The celeb-approved sneaker has been spotted on Hollywood's elite, such as Ben Affleck, Kate Hudson, Mila Kunis and Matthew McConaughey, who are all fans of the carbon neutral brand's casual but polished design.
Allbirds's Wool Runners are designed to keep your feet your feet warm in cool temperatures and cool in warmer weather. Along with the merino wool upper, the sneakers have insoles with merino fabric that are moisture wicking, odour reducing and ultra comfortable — whether you’re wearing socks or not.
What people are saying
The Wool Runners have earned a 4.8-star rating based on more than 1,500 customer reviews from shoppers who can't get enough of these "comfy" and "game-changing" runners.
'They feel like slippers'
"These are the best walking shoes I have ever had..so comfortable,” one customer wrote. "They feel like slippers and socks are not required! Warm in cold weather and cool in warm weather. What more could you ask for?”
'Light but incredibly supportive'
“I love these shoes. They’re light, but incredibly supportive. I have high arches and get lower back pain if I don’t wear the right shoes, and I have had no trouble with these,” another added. “They’re great shoes.”
'Oh so comfy'
"I need a wide shoe that is versatile and this is it!" a shopper wrote. "My orthotics fit in easily, it is warm and oh so comfy. I love my Allbirds."
Although the reviews for Allbirds are overwhelmingly positive (it's very hard to find a bad review!) there are some cons, particularly the price tag. Allbirds sneakers are pricey for Canadian shoppers, however, because they are machine washable, you get a lot of wear for your sneakers and they last a long time (read my full review). Another thing that might be an issue for some shoppers is that Allbirds doesn't offer half sizes. If you're between sizes, you might want to size up to ensure a more comfortable fit.
Editor's review of Allbirds Wool Runners
I've been an Allbirds fans for years, and the Wool Runners are by far my favourite shoe of their collection. I own several pairs in different colours and frequently reach for them whenever I go on long walks. I can't wait until it's safe to travel again because these will definitely be in my suitcase for days of exploring new cities without having tired feet.
The Wool Runners are comfy and can definitely be worn to the gym when you're lifting weights, but if you're looking for a pair of shoes for cardio or running, I'd suggest the Tree Dashers. The Tree Dashers are Allbirds first shoe specifically designed for running with a durable and very comfortable sweetfoam midsole (check out my full review here). They have a knit upper made from woven eucalyptus that allows air to penetrate to keep your foot cool while you move.

Allbirds have been called a "dream shoe" for a reason. These versatile but sporty runners are lightweight, comfortable and are the perfect shoes for anyone who spends all day on their feet.
The Wool Runners are available in 13 different colours, including the Duff-approved white, and although the price tag may be a little high for some, the comfort they offer is unparalleled. Not only are Allbirds good for your feet, they're great for the environment, making them a purchase you can feel good about.
